Free will

Princeton mathematicians John Conway and Simon Kochen claimed to mathematically prove that subatomic particles cannot conform to determinism.

This refers to one of the most fundamental questions about the universe: does it move according to an algorithm or is it completely random?

You can think of it as a religious question too: does God interfere with the universe or not? Of course, this won't answer the whole debate about God's existence, but it does seem to make the chances of God existing higher.

By the way, when I say God, I'm usually referring to the panentheist God.
