No. There are of course inevitable things such as death but my religious beliefs are against the concept of our lives being controlled by fate like we're puppets. Furthermore, if I wasn't religious I still wouldn't believe in fate -- at least not as a supernatural idea -- considering it alters nothing about my perception of it; if not makes me more likely to doubt its existence.

Fate in itself is a terrifying concept to me though so perhaps I'm a bit biased. I don't see reason to believe that fate exists though.

Look up the Many-Worlds theory. It is very interesting and is what I personally believe.

Ah, I've heard about that before. It is rather interesting and I personally believe in it myself -- just not that every action is predetermined. According to the Many Worlds theory, a choice is where those alternate universes stem from. After the alternate possibility it's perfectly feasible that the individuals within that universe have free will to make whatever choices they choose -- resulting in more universes stemming from that.


IMMUNITY TO FATE: Following this idea, living organisms are automatically immune to “fate.” An event can not be decided automatically by the universe more than one per timeline and as such all organisms existing in that specific timeline make their own choices. If an infinite number of universes exist each one would be born from a specific decision. However, if that universe is born from one decision others from its precursor couldn't affect it or the individuals within it because it is now an independent force completely free of all influence from other universes when under the normal flow of time.


My personal theory on the subject matter. Although we can't even know if these many worlds exist nor is there any evidence to indicate that they do considering the Many Worlds theory is... well, just a theory.

Not in the slightest... not even for a second...

That is what "free will," is all about...

You make your own choices....

There are things and people that will influence you but you almost always have a choice.

Sometimes they are good choices, sometimes they are bad....

I wouldn't say it's 100% pre-determined, but I do lean towards a deterministic point of view. I think there are certain events that are highly predictable, and others that are not. Many "decisions" are not made very thoughtfully and are the product of many past experiences and biology. I also think it is possible to actively pursue a course of action or lifestyle that has a high probability of setting you up for a desired result. But it's not a guarantee. And it 's difficult or near impossible to know if you made that choice or rather why you made the choice to thoughtfully prepare for future decisions and actions. So... I think it is possible to pre-calculate the probability of a course of events based on past variables. Which seems to be me saying there is no "freewill". But I guess that just leaves us to define what actions or events would be classified as coercion, or persuasion at a minimum, which affect a person's life for better or worse... Usually we don't like the worse and would say that the action is infringing on a person's freewill. Well, I don't know if that made any sense, bye.
