We perhaps shouldn't make fun of them. They are touching on some very difficult questions about determinism and free will. These thing are not easy to get one's heads around. And it's not difficult to imagine how some people can get it completely wrong.

The way to fix it would be by giving them the basic education that they never had. Explaining to them the basic laws of physics, for instance. But that might take considerable time and effort. They've had a faulty operating system installed, and that's not easy to remedy by some small patches and fixes.
