Discussions on free will always raise my ire. It seems that the majority of philosophers in the field are compatibilists but theists seem to always be ignorant of the last 300 years of philosophical thought in the area of free will. Appeals to quantum mechanics strike me just as absurd as libertarian free will. Random effects at the quantum level do not degrees of freedom in action make.

Unfortunately most people are stuck in the determinism vs libertarian mindset. Compatibilism offers an amazingly powerful argument to the contrary. Other good resources (besides the stanford philosophical dictionary I linked above) are the discussion on free will in Richard Carrier's Sense and Goodness Without God and Daniel Dennett's Elbow Room: The Varieties of Free Will Worth Having.

I am not sure that I entirely agree with this article. While a lot of art has been inspired by religious experience in the past, I would counter that a lot of art in the last century has been inspired by empirical experience. Art itself has become a kind of empirical experiment to find the connection between stimulus and experience. Sometimes god is still the subject of a work of art, but that isn't true anymore for the vast majority of work.

EDIT: Also, this is pretty good.
