something along those lines.
just to clarify, i'm thinking about determinism on the physical level, not biological, social, etc. eg when two atoms interact in such and such a way only one outcome is possible, and so the result is necessary.
actually... if my question doesn't make too much sense it might be because i'm not sure what i'm trying to ask. i spent a year or two studying existensialism (ala autodidact) but after that, i picked up a bit of cold hard determinism. i'm really just wondering how the two fit in together. last i checked, existensialism required God's nonexistence. but the existence of physical laws (eg universal gravitation) seems to substitute for that. so the two seem to be opposite as u described...
