Yes. The world is deterministic enough for us to predict future events accurately enough to make short range plans. But it's uncertain enough for us to change our plans as conditions change. That ability to change our intentions---to choose between alternative futures---is the chink in the inevitability of determinism that we exploit to suit our own needs : free will.

I'm not sure what Kaku thinks of the god question. But I view the equation as, "if freewill exists, then God exists". There is no reason for an eternal deterministic Multiverse to allow any freedom at all, except for the limited dimensions of space & time. Mental freedom though, extends beyond those physical boundaries, allowing us to explore things that have no physical existence, such as the possibility of an Enfernal deity . scratch

Perhaps we are god's free-will made manifest.
