So many appeals to consequence. They basically say, we should believe we have free-will because then we can justify holding people morally responsible for their actions. The article don't suggest we believe in free-will because there is evidence that it exist. People often ironically appeal to consequence to support why they think we should believe in free-will. Because without free-will, our current system appears unjustifiable. Of course, we have no choice in the matter though.
