>I have had it explained to me that we still have free choice to do what we want to do. But God is all-knowing and *knows* what we will choose to do, but doesn't necessarily *influence* our actions.

Yeah, after some thought I suppose we can have free will and that isn't necessarily inconsistent with gods foreknowledge. I mean, if the past is fixed then you should be able to predict the movements of our bodies as physical objects into the future. So if we knew everything about physics then we could predict the future - maybe thats how god gets his foreknowledge :-)

But with or without god, I guess there is the same problem for everyone.

I think I agree with you, we can still have freedom.
