I gave those definitions because Veks asked for them.
Fine. So God was a bad choice for free will. Do you choose what you watch on T.V., what you eat, what you wear? It's very basic but it's free will.
And I was trying to expand on those definitions, to make them more useful here. :)
One of my coworkers, an otherwise apparently intelligent human being, always votes the straight Republican ticket without thinking twice or even bothering to see who's running, in some cases. When asked, he says he does this because that was how his father always voted.
Conversely, I've been known to decide on one of those more minor issues such as what clothes to buy by guessing what my mother would pick and then choosing something as opposite as I can get.
Both of us are exercising a sort of reverse free will, you could say -- perhaps he doesn't want the effort of deciding, so chooses to follow his father's path. I don't need to be as different from my mother as possible, but it makes me feel better. Still, I don't feel compelled to do that. So it's both free will and external influence, mixing and combining in weird ways. You simply can't separate them.
And clearly Oniya and I took two very different paths to arrive at roughly the same place. Is that because our internal compasses would have taken us there anyway, or because upbringing can have such wildly unpredictable effects?
If free will didn't exist, then wouldn't that mean that God chose for me not to believe in Him? (Not sure how valid that is logically, but it is an interesting question.)
Didn't some philosopher cover that question? It's been much too long since that intro philosophy class...
