Reasons To Disagree

This would contradict Obi Wan Kenobi when he pointed out that finding Anakin was the will of the Force. As a 'collective' free will is meaningless, it must be individual.

I bleieve the Force has/is intelligence and therfore has a will. This will possibly reflects our own individual wills and collective will, and vice versa.

20 May 2011

I do not think the Force is a deity, more a link/connection between all things (matter and everything in it, dark matter, dark energy, etc) in the Universe (the Unifying Force), and the flow of combined energy, force, nutrients, and matter in an ecological role (the Living Force).

The Force does not have free will. It is called a FORCE for a reason. It is not conscious, and does not "help" us. When they refer to the Force as guiding them, it is not actually helping them in a sense. It is merely keeping the eternal balance of the universe.

21 February 2012

Isn't this a re-wording of the last question? I reiterate. The force is not a deity but a universal consciousness, and has a will of it's own.

23 December 2012

The force is an eternal connection between all things. The "will of the force" is the will of the collective whether conscious or subconscious. We can improve our world by improving thought and helping others physically, mentally and spiritually.

28 January 2013

There is a basic philosophical precept that something greater cannot come from something lesser. The Force therefore has a supreme consciousness and will.

23 April 2013

the force is their as a guidance the decision you make in life are yours and yours alone.

4 July 2013

Dieties are subject to the universal consciousness as well

22 August 2013

Everyone has free will nothing is pulling your string

16 March 2014

We all choose our own path. Deities attempt to choose it for us (at least, some do). The Force will work with us as much as we allow it, but is something quite different.

3 September 2014

there is no gods...only the force

21 November 2014

The Force has a Will.

6 December 2014

We have free will and there is no deity just a Force

13 February 2015

I only believe in the force not the deity

2 August 2016

The force is a non-sentient energy field. Beings enact themselves upon it. It does not enact itself upon beings.

2 August 2016

a deity is a package or constraint that limits the limitless.

31 August 2016

I think that the force has a will, but it gives us the free will do decide whether or not to follow it

Reasons To Agree

I agree, but i disagree. Even in the use of the Force there still is free will. You make the decision of how to use it, when to use it, where to use it, and even if you will use it.

5 March 2011

The force is an eternal connection between all things. The "will of the force" is the will of the collective whether conscious or subconscious. We can improve our world by improving thought and helping others physically, mentally and spiritually.

11 February 2012

i belive in the force and the jedi ways,i think it makes more sense than all the other religions

11 March 2012

The force is as close to a deity we should ever have. It isn't an all powerful being but it is the all powerful bond between all living things.

11 May 2014

The force guided our evolution with no consciousness.

14 November 2014

Free will is something the force gives us

27 June 2015

The laws of the Force are far beyond our understanding. It may be acting by it's own accord, but it is more likely that it follows a set of laws in an attempt to maintain balance just like everything else that occurs naturally.

1 January 2016

The force is merely a fact. It is up to us how we will act on any facts we encounter in our life.

9 September 2016

I agree to a point. The Force has its own will, but will accept ours to further its cause.

27 November 2018

La forza ha una volontà

15 January 2019

Reasons for Remain Neutral

If Gods existed they would most likely be governed by the force much like us. See Tao. However, i am not sure i beleive in anything other then the eternal force.

28 February 2011

The Force is our deity and does what must be done, but the Force also lets us do what we want with it when we feel it is necessary. The Force has free will, while at the same time it is our consciousness.

7 March 2011

I would agree that the force has an consciousness and as the force is light and living I belive it also has the free will to partisipate

17 March 2011

Although we use the force to help us, it has free will, but is very much like a deity and is universal.

11 June 2011

You can call The Force with the name you want, even though you think as a deity - but one though is right: The Force is the universal consciousness, and has no individual free will

31 August 2011

the force is there we have free will we can go to the darkside with the forces help or we can go the right way with the force

2 April 2012

You are using the force the force is not using you.

2 April 2012

It does nothing, yet leaves nothing undone. The Force doesn't need to be worshiped. It requires our participation as living beings but it does not need us to believe in it for it to work.

1 April 2013

Universe have no free will, the Force is our deity. The Force is called physics.

23 April 2014

the force is not a deity with free will we are the ones with free will however due to the force being the energy that created us the force has a universal consciousness that sets out how things are designed to run

1 January 2015

I agree with this mainly. However there are those who have incarnated from such high levels dimensionaly, that many could not discern their energy patterns from that of the original one. The universal energy uses these as avatars. This is because that which is pure cannot become matter. The universal energy is still in control and is One.

21 June 2015

I believe connections are made through the force, and if you follow the connection of force it can quide you, but at the same time you are able to distance yourself from the force so there is still self control.
