Free Will

I was at a restaurant tonight and saw poutine on the menu and ordered it.

I haven't eaten this in years as:
  • it's fattening
  • the gravy contains an animal
  • cheese forces cows to be pregnant and die early
  • I am allergic to milk
  • It makes me sick
And yet I still got it.

The theory is the only thing separating humans from animals is free will.

So why is it people so often choose to do the wrong thing?
