I hate modern philosophers, especially when they use degrees in science to add credibility to what are essentially non-scientific premises. The concept of "free will" isn't something born out of science; it is something born out of philosophy. In this regard, it matters not that Sam Harris is a neuroscientist. He could be a janitor, and be equally prepared to answer the question.
