Re: Fate or Chance?
I honestly debated even writing that second paragraph, as everyone has their beliefs and I respect that. I kind of felt that it was necessary to tie in though, and that fate vs. chance is incredibly hard to discuss without getting into the subject of higher powers. I guess you can sort of try to separate fate from that, but then again if you believe in it how would you explain these things being "fate" without some unknown force to actually set fate itself in motion? Belief in the fact that all events happen for a reason, with no one controlling this is kind of a direct contradiction isn't it?
Due to that, and my obvious outlook on things of this matter, it kind of forces me to dismiss fate personally. If you believe it then more power to ya, as it really could be considered just another way to have a positive outlook on life through any events for better or worse. I like to still have this positive outlook even though I believe any given event simply just is.
