Sleep as a counter-freewill argument Dan-E.Nilsson@cob.lu.se Aug 21, 2005
Childishly simple to refute.

We are unable to exercise free will while sleeping.
However, it is intended that our actions be guided by free will.
Solution: design sleep so that we are unable to perform most actions while
sleeping. And this is the case in the real world. In fact, the vast
majority of us are effectively unable to perform ANY activity while
sleeping (aside from snoring and rolling over).

Indeed, it's no surprise that we regard sleep-walking and other such
activities as abnormal.
