    Re: Fate or free-will?

    Whether I decide to get up an take get some food right now could be free will, or it could just be trillions of atoms bouncing together in my head telling me to. Either way, I'm getting some cereal. In other words, you're still gonna do what you're gonna do, so who cares?

    I think our actions are determined by a combination of instinct, self-will, and reaction to the actions of those in the world with us. I don't really believe in fate or free-will.

    Re: Fate or free-will?

    Human Fate is shaped by the choices made by human beings
    as the sovereigns of their own Free Will

    combined with events over which we possess no control.

    In my opinion Free Will is preeminent, although a whole city
    of thousands of people may be wiped 100% completely out
    by some natural calamity, taking all the conscientious down
    along with every wastrel, with no regard for individual merit.

    Re: Fate or free-will?

    Fate is what happens, free will is what you do about it...
    My parents were poor and disadvantaged, and they raised 6 kids. The 6 of us being born to them is fate, the fact that some of us are doing OK, some are poor, and some are well off, is only to a limited extent fate, the rest is free will....
