You interest me... It's been a long while since I found any sort of intellectual to reason with.
I do like some of your argumentation.
I greatly respect (and here I am speaking of vexen, and not many of the people posting comments), that you have given more than a fleeting moment to posit and logically construct your arguments.
I won't do you the discourtesy of advancing my thoughts on the matter of freewill (such as they are) without first giving more careful consideration to what you've put forth.
I will however leave this simple thought.
The more complex/grandiose an issue is, the fewer options there are to solve it. In the case of God, we are only left with two options.
2) No God
What I suggest to you is that we all are basing are arguments about God/god(s)/"god" on our presupposed option (Either 1 or 2).
I think we do ourselves a disservice when we look at an issue in this way. So, while I won't bother you with my specifics on freewill (at least until I understand more fully your own), I will say that "The Existence of God Contradicts Free Will," only if God doesn't in fact exist.
