Summa Contra Indeterminism

MYTH
Indeterminism is the correct theory of causality

Indeterminism, proponents of which include Charles Pierce and William James, is false. Indeterminists misapply Heisenberg's principle. Indeterminism makes science impossible and the world irrational if events occur without a cause. The prinicple of causality is well established and undeniable. Indeterminism wrongly eliminates moral responsibility and denies God's role as the Originator and Sustainer of all things.
