That is what determinism means. I don't think there can be any meaning
attached to false determinism, however, so the true is a little

That is also the case of indeterminism, but some might think that
ignorance is a form of indeterminism (which it needn't be). Hence my
sticking the redundant "true" tag to make the point.
