Immaterial Animating Principle

There is no God. There is no spirit realm.
Everything is material.
Man acts. Man gives man free will.
Wait. If everything is material, how can I possibly act? In what sense do I have free will? Without an immaterial animating principle, I lack all agency. Everything I do is the end-product of chemical reactions. There is no "ought" or "ought not," only a perpetual "is."
I punch you in the nose? You can't hold me responsible. Physics made me do it.
Man is material.
Man has free will.
Man has a plan.
Is that the Unholy Trinity? These grindingly antagonistic anti-God people are confusing.
