    yeah i believe there's fate. WHY? because if you were to use statistics some of these things should not happen...like Derek Fisher hitting a shot with only 0.6 seconds to beat the spurs

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    I believe in fore-ordination not pre-destination. As in there are things we are meant to do but it's up to us to choose whether or not we'll do them.

    As for the things that happen to us generally there are consequences and happenstance. Consequences are the result of our own or someone elses actions and happenstance are things that just happen and don't really matter except in terms of how we deal with them. Often it's impossible to tell which of the three (pre-destination, consequence, or happenstance) is happening until it's over, if then.

    Generally friends I have had that believed in Fate tended to use it as an excuse for their own poor choices. Since I am a firm believer in personal choice and responsibility this does irk me a little. Blaming your problems on someone or something else seems to me a poor way to excuse poor behavior. It also prevents things from being fixed/fixable. Don't complain to me if you are miserable for doing the same thing that made you miserable last time.

    Now that I think a little more about it, finding out if biblical tales are coincidence or not kinda determines whether you believe, On Ripley's once, they claim a young hindi child was born with the exact same marks as one their gods, even it's tail! Scientist reason it's just coincidence, but the child is still worshipped. I just really wonder sometimes.

    I've always believed that everything happens for a reason and that what happens is meant to be. Life's so short that coincidences happen, but things that change your life are meant to be.

    Cool ?

    i beleave in fate but i think theres 2 sides to it one that was already plained out for you and the 1 you can change for example you see a box of candy and you see you have the chance to get it now its fate that you get it but you dont have to so if you would have gotten it you would have gotten into troble i think god makes it where we have the option to choose between what there for us and what we make out of whats given

    Do to others as you see fit
