Re: Pointy ends or transoms?
If you're designing a boat with a transom bow and a pointy stern I look forward to seeing it. But like Ian says, that doesn't seem to be what this is.
There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.
