Since we perceive choices pretty much constantly, if determinism were true then we would have to assume and would have excellent reason to assume that our perception is utterly unreliable. Since we have good reason to believe that our perception is generally reliable -- science wouldn't work otherwise -- doesn't that suggest that determinism is false?
If determinism were true then we would perceive reality exactly the way we perceive it now. Our perception is not a good tool to use while discussing whether determinism is the correct model of reality.
