If you think fate is real then you've been playing too much video games or watching too much anime and need to realise that there is no such thing as magic or the supernatural.

First, I have to say.. These are just my views/opinions.. I am not trying to say that anyone else's beliefs are wrong.. This is just how I see it..

With my views on Karma.. things are somewhat predestined.. But in this case, you would somewhat be the predestiner(yep, I made a word) Because I believe you come with certain purposes you came up with before incarnating.. Do I believe anything of the future is ever set in stone? nope. Do I believe certain karma is predestined to be worked out? yes, but if you are the right type of person, and it is the right kind of karma, that can be delayed.. But it will eventually have to be worked out, no matter how many lifetimes it takes.. Everything is about potentialities.. Could you be "destined" to be able to save someone's life, but decide not to? yes. I also believe someones higher life purpose is decided on before incarnating, but it is also said that a person's higher life purpose can change depending on their own spiritual evolution in this lifetime..

Just what the topic said i wanted peoples opinion on this. Do you think your fate as a human being is predetermined? And before anyone ask yes had a religious discussion before that brought this up things like in the bible are predetermined aka rapture, the end of the world and things of that nature. So do you think our fate death and success things like that are predetermined? I like your thoughts crunchy roll people. I don't believe in predetermined fates for humankind or for my own fate.
(I feel like im missing something from this if i wasn't clear or made a mistake feel free to correct me)


No I don't think fate is pre-determined, heck I don't believe in fate as a whole. I believe that your life is literally just a random sequence of events and coincidences.

Fate or Faith?
Faith is believing in something without proof. Faith is a real thing since people can believe in something whether or not what they believe in is actually real.

Maybe, I certainly believe that we are somehow, in a non-physical way, controlling our fate without realizing it.

- Sophie's World
- http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophie%27s_World

Sophie's World (Norwegian: Sofies verden) is a 1991 novel by Norwegian writer Jostein Gaarder. It follows the events of Sophie Amundsen, a teenage girl living in Norway, and Alberto Knox, a middle-aged philosopher who introduces her to philosophical thinking and the history of philosophy.

Sophie's World was originally written in Norwegian and became a best seller in Norway. It won the Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis in 1994. The English version of the novel was published in 1995, and the book was reported to be the best-selling book in the world in that year. By 2011 the novel had been translated into fifty-nine languages, with over forty million copies in print.[1] It is one of the most commercially successful Norwegian novels outside of Norway, and has been adapted into a film and a PC game.

I determine my own fate.

I recall my old geometry teacher once discussing the difference between fate and destiny after class. He did not believe in either, but anyway.

As mortals we are all fated to die, but how we live and how we die is usually up to us. To me our destiny is our path before us, with our fate at the end and legacy thereafter.

There is a predicated reward or consequence for every action that a human can make (or fail to make). There is no fate/destiny set in stone, BUT there is the fate that awaits your decisions.

There is no such thing as a coincidence in this world, there is only the inevitable.

yes
the future is based on the behavior of the present and past inhabitants.
