So my dumb ass of a brother keeps saying that there is no such thing as free will. He says living things are just fucking biological computers, like fuck off. How do I convince him how stupid he sounds?

Start jabbing your knuckles into his ribcage. When he tells you to stop remind him that you're a biological computer and appealing to your free will is pointless.

Why bother? Let him say what he wants and ignore it.

You know that this is actually something people argue in philosophy, right? There's even some neurology studies that seem to imply that we don't make any of our own decisions on a conscious level anyway. (I'm on my phone but you can feel free to google it.).

Your brother is expressing a valid -- and fairly common -- philosophical viewpoint.

OP's brother is right. Doesn't excuse you being a name fag and shit posting on 4chan.

Die in a fire that was always going to happen, as it's existence was predetermined from the big bang.
