    You don't need to bump something that's only 7 minutes old . . .

    Anyway, I completely reject the notion of fate. I have complete control over my reactions to external situations and my conscious decisions, and there are no pre-determined outcomes.

    I don't. I just believe that stuff happens for no reason. It just happens.

    You don't need to bump twice in an 8 minute old thread.. :/


    I suppose I do, from the viewpoint that everything I do is going to happen exactly as it will. I don't know where I'll be 10 years from now, but every action I take up until that point has already happened, I just haven't lived them yet.

    Nope. Life is what you make it.

    No, I think things just happen. The world just is, we just are and things happen to us and we make decisions. That's it, really.

    I think things happen for a reason, cause and effect, obviously.

    When people say "X happened for a reason", they usually mean "X happened for a positive reason", which is absolute ******** imo,

    No, I don't. While all past actions affect future actions, I don't see how this means it is because some force controls it.

    I think the whole concept of mysticism is for weak and dopey people.

    I don't believe you have full control, as I think I saw two others say, because you don't.

    The very idea of 'fate' though is completely absurd.
