    It seems to me that even scientific determinism has taken a hit from quantum mechanics and chaos theory. What this means is that knowing everything about initial conditions doesn’t give you god-like ability to predict (or determine) the future, no matter how good the equations you use. One can zero in on probabilities that some things are more likely to happen than others, but at certain levels of reduction and complexity exact prediction is not possible.
