Free will or not??

so , lets start from the beginning.when we were born. we were told about everything. do this and dont do that.
this is good and that is bad.
gradually, slowly we developed logical structures, the basis on which we make our decisions.
for example. different people have different life values. some people value freedom, some value relationships more. some value fun, while some value money.
so different people have developed different logical structures and have different set of values. which causes the difference in different people's behaviour.

So , now we get to the point where we can say. that each and every human being is programmed according to his upbringing and the environment in which he or she was brought up and we had no control over that. cmon, could you control the house in which you were born or the parents you have. NO!!

so, it comes to a sort of computer program where when a result is put in. the result comes up according to the programming done. So if by any method we were able to find out the program structure according to which a person works, we would be able to predict for sure what he/she is going to do or how the person is going to react when a certain thing happens.

So, what do you people think now. if you are talking of free will , what do you mean by free will. when whatever you choose is based on a program , a logical structure which developed fully outside of your control.
suppose you like chocolate ice cream, why do you like it? can you explain. so even if you choose chocolate instead of strawberry, u cant change the fact that why you like chocolate is not under your control.

why you like a certain type of music is not under your control.

the conclusion, free will is just an illusion.
