Such as fate destiny and soulmates

  • No. Terrorism, starvation, and abuse do not happen for a reason. They happen being of the heartlessness of human beings.

  • "Having a reason" is just a thinking mechanism primates developed to survive, but then took too far and created fantasies to explain things irrelevant to their survival. Now we are burdened with religions, superstitions and other nonsense.

  • No, and to look at the world as a whole you can see that most events don't happen for any reason at all. People get bored easily with life and want to think there are supernatural powers at work that may eventually work in their favor. Nope.

    I do think however, we as a life form may evolve into a supernatural entity at some point in time. We may even escape time altogether, who knows what future will bring. A large asteroid could hit the planet and wipe us out for good, and all will be for not.

  • Theres not a reason. It just his. And your actions have reactions. And others DO impede in your life.

  • I put other, I dont really believe that everything has a reason, I believe that everything is some sort of test. Like its a test to how you live your life and how you react to different life situations.

    • But, I also believe that I can be wrong and that it is possible that destiny exists even though I 100% sure that everything is a test. Same thing goes for christianity, bhuddism, jewish, etc. i am also christian btw.

  • Cause and effect is a fact so, in that sense, a lot of things happen for a reason.

    But I don't believe that things happen for a Reason, in the sense of some cosmic masterplan.

    Pattern-recognition is wired into our brains, and we have a need to believe that our lives have some meaning. From our perspective, we are each the center of our universe, and it's painful to accept that we're actually just the latest in a long line of brighter than average monkeys on an piddling little planet in an insignificant corner of an inconceivably vast universe. So we decide that we're so important that the universe is sending us a personal message when our eyes meet those of someone cute in the same instant as our favorite love song starts playing.

  • What?! That much people said yes?! There's no such thing as fate, that for sure. You are in full control of your life.

    • Who are you addressing in your last sentence? People with disabilities, severe or terminal illnesses, sexually abused children? That's just 3 examples off the top of my head.

      • I am addressing people in general. Their lives are more difficult and more limited, yes. Nevertheless, they can choose to live whatever life they can. Besides, it seems very strange to say "It was his fate to be sexually abused as a child," wouldn't you agree?

        • I definitely agree, but it's more than strange, it's insulting. That's why I used to have arguments with friends who were into karma and louise l hay bullshit that kids who are sexually abused chose those parents so they could learn that particular "lesson". After I'd been raped one moronic woman told me I'd attracted it because I was so angry: yeah right, I wasn't angry before I was raped!

  • I believe that it depends on the situation, but I certainly don't believe in predestination.

    • How about not being able to do something you want to do right in the moment no matter how much you tried but then it happens with no effort later, do u think the prevention of it happening was for your own good? Maybe when it happened later you met someone for example or you did smthg you couldn't have done if it happened before? Sorry if i did not make any sense.
