I don't really belive in any of them, at least on a religious stand point. I don't belive in Karma, given its religious roots, and I definitely don't believe in fate. Fate is harder to dispel, however, because everything does happen for a purpose, but universally, not just as a concept that only exends to Earth. Our lives are, in essence, is only the process of matter storing and releasing energy, which is what everything is; our thoughts are energy,our actions are based on energy, and everything around us gas its roots in energy and/or matter. For the sake of the argument, let's say that the amount of matter and energy in the universe are finite, very large, but finite. If that's the case, then energy and matter, their use and expendture should, ultimately, matter. Some poeple say that energy cannot be created or destroyed, and I say bull crap, so all actions are acting towards a great universal "plan" and meeting someone by "fate" is one hell of a stretch for me. Yet I digress. Destiny is another thing. If one says destiny is an action one is eventually going to do in their lives, then I do belive in destiny. I am destined to go to sleep, I am destined to die, and I am destined to do all sorts of unavoidable things. Destiny is not, in my mind, like unavoidable actions one will choose to make themselves. If someone told me I was destined to go to become king or something melodramatic like that, I would get a crappy job just to shut the person up. As put in the words of some long-forgotten anime stereotype, "we cut our own destiny." I couldn't agree more. Oh, and luck, well, luck is, by definition, the occurence of any acton with low probabilaty happening and usually yielding good results. Luck is really just "good" probability, what's not to belive?

things dont happen for a purpose, things gain purpose after it happens. your definition of destiny is on the ball, there are things that are unavoidable that are destined to happen. like sleeping, talking a shit. luck also right one the ball

hmm....I believe in divine intervention, yes but to only a certain degree, I mean if there was a thing called fate then why would we be held liable for our actions when it was already decided by a greater power and then wouldnt that totally make heaven and hell obselete because we did those actions without our 'free will' and I do believe in karma which states that as you sow so shall you reap which merely means that I would have a "choice" to do what I want from the given scenario and that would have imapcts on my life furhter on, so my fate is decided by my actions makes more sense to me as oppsed to predetermined destiny.


Damnit I worked on this for three minutes straight I am going to quote this again >_<
and yes bellus luck IS fake, just a frame of mind.

I believe in Karma. I have done things that not with my intention but was told to do things that is not ethically right. And i believe that karma will bite back as it has. its only a matter of time and whether it comes bit by bit.. or one big wave. I prefer to come in bits.. because i dont think i can handle the wave of bad karma.

I believe in luck, luck is always a factor but a small fractinon and fate and destiny can be controlled by how u want it to be shaped with ur attitude. And opportunity comes n goes n whether u can see it or not n grab on to it depends on ur wisdom to be able to see it.

yea karma iz good and luck tings but i have a theory about fate. Fate would be God giving you a little push in the right direction, not tell you what to do but helping you with out affecting free will. Thats where He can control his "plan" of sorts. Since God iz able to tell the future and all, He will still have a plan, for God to be able to tell the future iz possibly like this or not. If you were to know a particle's speed from point A to point B you will you will know when it stops and where, since God has the all seeing "Eye" He can see all the people and objects knowing there speed and location from point A to point B etc, thats how He can tell the future. Just a theory of mine and God also might be "Random" too(He too can control random and stuff). We call "random" "random" and God can affect random cause we don't know the outcome of random. God iz God, Random iz God. Yea them iz just only theory's of mine. I come up with a lot of theory's by thinkin most of the time and think bout them day and night

^like what chunky said.

I think things happen in one's life because they were meant to happen. The choices you make leads you to where you are. The things that happen to you expectedly or un-expectedly are suppose to happen too...yeah

I think that fate, destiny,karma, luck are sort of all connected... Life gives you... for examples many doors... you have to choose one or more of them to actually receive a sort of life-time reward... and not all rewards are happy ones... its as good as it gets... that if you want them to change...
