Arminianism, Libertarian Free Will, and the Road to Open Theism

Some LFWers (and some atheists) here raised the objection of theological fatalism for the Calvinist (though we escape that by denyingt eh LFW premise).

We raised the objection that exhaustive, traditionally conceived views of God's foreknowledge actually puts the LFWer in the predicament.

They danced around that with the Boethian shuffle.

We shoot back with the Dr. Sudduth bazooka.

"It seems that divine timelessness, rather than providing a way to reconcile foreknowledge and indeterministic freedom, actually accentuates the difficulty, perhaps even rendering such a reconciliation logically impossible."
