← The raw deal of determinism and reductionism

Seems like an overly complicated argument over an issue that remains to be proven. Free will is a felt, intuitive belief and so its existence and reality is asserted. What mountain of data on this topic, other than a few tantalizing studies that seem to suggest that it does not exist (at least not as we think it does), is there for anybody to account for and trace back through a causal/determined sequence? Or, reduce down to something simpler?
