The concept of free will vs predetermined destiny is a question that only is based on belief and not a hypothesis that can be proved imho.
As far as personal opinion I believe in free will, but to prove free will is as illusory as trying to prove evolution to a creationist, Loved Ben Carlsons comment n Oprah today, how could it not be intelligent design if creatures are able to adapt to their environment.
Freewill is realized through the act of choosing between alternatives. The act of choosing is a product of ignorance. If you had complete knowledge you would not choose because you would already know the correct alternative.
The greater the knowledge the less the need to choose and the greater the responsibility for making bad choices. Question: why do punish individuals who due to their biological make-up and limited intellectual capacity, make bad choices? Answer: because we choose to ignore the reality of the human condition.
