Van Til

Bahnsen and Van Til presuppositionalists, for some reason failed to notice that Calvinism is a tautological. My own theory is that the tautology that undergrids Greek philosophy Calvin studied and absorbed .

Van Till did not notice that Hegel formulated Meaningless sentences and what nonsense was absorbed into his philosophy from Hegel needs further study.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tautology_(rhetoric)

The tautological structure of the argument is indisputable and the conclusion thus a non-sequitur.

Which is a Reductio ad absurdum , violating the law of excluded middle(third). Free will/determinism , no third option. Free choice is the synonym of free will, not the third option to free will/non-free will.
