Readiness potential don't mean shit
See this prior post on Peter Tse's new book on the neuroscience of free will along with a YouTube talk. In this much shorter video he did an experiment that dissociates the readiness potential from the will and undermines Libet's research, the foundation for claims against free will. His claim is similar to Schurger et al in this post which also showed that the readiness potential has nothing to do with either the action or the will, just being spontaneous fluctuations. Yes, this is verifiable scientific tests. Go forth, reproduce them, validate the results. If you're not so attached to your Libet delusion that you are incapable of overcoming confirmation bias, that is.
