    fate exists. and coincidence doesn't. everything, everything little thing, happens for a reason. do you think the moon can't affect our moods?
    Quantum theory says that fate cannot exist in the long term sense. Scientific determinism is dead. Nothing can be known for sure. Even the universe doesnt know:

    "God does not play dice" etc. except it would appear he does :rolleyes:

    Everything does not happen for a reason. I believe in chaos theory, everything is a random series of coincidences. I mean a couple has a stillborn child - the reason for that would be complications in the womb, it has nothing to do with it being fated to happen.

    i believe it happens for a reason... maybe if the child lived it could have been the next hitler. or it could have been born with a defect.... whatever. possibilites are endless.

    Fair enough. But you have no idea how many people have tried and failed to prove it wrong. To be honest nobody likes it that way but it predicts everything so looks like we are stuck with it :rolleyes:

    Ok then in future all nurses should be advised to counsel grief stricken parents by telling them it was fate because their child was going to be an evil dictator :rolleyes:

    That explanation is a cop-out
