Foreknowledge, Freedom, and the Fixity of the Past

Philosophia 39 (3):461-474 (2011)

Abstract
I seek to clarify the notion of the fixity of the past appropriate to Pike’s regimentation of the argument for the incompatibility of God’s foreknowledge and human freedom. Also, I discuss Alvin Plantinga’s famous example of Paul and the Ant Colony in light of Pike’s argument
Keywords God’s foreknowledge  Human freedom  Pike  Plantinga  Paul and the Ant Colony
