It's just amazing how many philosophers can devote so much time and effort
trying to figure out the origin of free will but never try even for one
second to figure out what they're talking about, what the hell the term
"free will" is supposed to mean. The first order of business should be to
decide what "free will" means, only after that should you worry about if
humans have that particular property, and only after that theorize how it
originated.  Before any of that you've got to know what "it" is, and
philosophers don't have a clue.
