I don't see any reason to believe in fate. Plus, the belief that something MUST happen because it's either written somewhere or because someone believes it strongly has caused a lot of damage in human history. One very awful example I've read about is when communist intellectuals accepted Hitler's rise because they saw fascism as a necessary step to the "fate" of communism: the overthrow of the expropriators. They excused him as a passing phase along communism's path to destiny. Whoops.

"Destiny," "fate" and "prophecy" all seem like dangerous ways of interpreting the world. These easily breed myopic fanatics.

Plus, fate only looks, and works, backwards. When something happens we say "ah! It was fated" after the fact. Before the fact we have no idea. Humans also seem terrible at prediction in general. So our interpretations of history often fool us into thinking we can look both into the past and into the future.

I do believe in faith, because a lot of people seem to have it. Whether it does them any good is a separate question...

The real understanding of it and explanation along with practical history proves there is fate and destiny. But the two are absolutely unrelated to a god.

Fate has much to do with the determined out come from an event mandated by men.

Funny how some say they believe they are in control of their own destiny, yet completely ignore all the times when, while they're being in control and all, something impacts their life that they never saw coming, forcing their life to take a turn they never intended.

"Fate", or whatever you wish to call it or think of it as, has a funny way of poking at your life and shaping it whether you like it or not.

Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.

I believe in it.
But it has to be in the moment.
Sometimes its just darn luck,
And sometimes its just a stupid choice you make.
