I'm livid that I can't assault and cause permanent damage to someone's soul or make it so they can't get into heaven.


Me too.

I also can't turn into a dolphin.
This is because I lack that ability.
Does that also mean I lack some aspect of freewill?

If No:
If I lacked the ability to commit evil then I would have just as much freewill as I currently have.

If Yes:
Considering how many billions of things I am unable to do - being unable to commit evil would make very little difference to my freewill quota.


Always remember: QUIDQUID LATINE DICTUM SIT ALTUM VIDITUR

Science flies you into space; religion flies you into buildings.
