"To be clear, no single study would disprove all forms of free will. This is because the term "free will" can encapsulate different hypotheses, each of which must be considered in light of existing empirical evidence."
Great, progress has been made if you can at least accept it is a test of free-will!
You will see I made it clear it was no absolute proof of no free-will, just very suggestive of it, and the timing issues mentioned in the first link were addressed in the second link.
There is not just a single study, either, I have made mention of three already, tackling different parts of the free-will problem.
There is no known or intelligible mechanism by which free-will can exist, scientifically speaking. We are all apart of the Universe, and therefore subject to the forces within that Universe, without proof of an external force capable of acting outside of those forces, it doesn't even make sense to entertain the possibility of free-will existing, in my opinion.
"All of our behavior can be traced to biological events about which we have no conscious knowledge: this has always suggested that free will is an illusion."
