Abstract: In "Omniprescience and Divine Determinism" Richard La Croix gives an interesting twist to the debate over the apparent inconsistency between divine omniscience free will, arguing that an eternally omnipresent being, viz., one which always foreknowledge of all future events, cannot make decisions, possess free will, or except from necessity. 1. Phillip Quinn, in a critique of that essay, claims that Croix's argumentation fails to secure these dramatic conclusions, even with the assumption that all future events are knowable. 2. Here, with some modification I battle on behalf of La Croix.
