: hi,
: i haven't been formally grilled in philosophy, so apologies if this makes no sense or is textbook material.

: determinism (the newtonian variety) would deny free will without implying the existence of God. does that make it a counter to existensialism of sorts..? if not, where does it stand?

Not sure, but Newton, if I rightly recall, was a theist.
