I believe that our fate is dependent on certain actions and/or decisions.
Not everything is predetermined... but to an extent. So I voted Yes, although it's not entirely accurate.

I voted no.

The funny thing is, the older I get, the more I find myself thinking about fate...believing in it more. I don't believe in it yet...I don't like the idea that there is some force out there that predetermines who/what we're going to do with our lives. I don't understand it yet. Is fate God? Does fate MAKE us do certain things, or just bring us to a path,a precipice, where we make our own decisions?

my answer is no

I've long been intrigued by the idea of fate. My favorite tarot card is the wheel of fortune (I've even been thinking about getting a tattoo inspired by it) But, ultimatly, I believe that we control our destiny.

i voted yes, although i agree with what angel said about that not all things are determined by fate.

i'd like to think i'm the cause of my own fuck-ups, not fate.

No. God knows exactly what will happen, but He gives us the freewill to make our own decisions.

I look at fate as more of a romantic notion than a reality.

I believe we create our own fate, or karma, through our actions, words, thoughts and feelings. We put causes forth and then must experience the effects, either in this life or another. I will also add that I believe this is the meaning of being born 'in sin' in the Bible--i.e., born with karma.

I don't believe in fate. I believe God gave us the gift of free will - although it doesn't feel like much of a "gift" sometimes when you find yourself in a situation where you simply don't know what to do.

No. I used to believe in fate but the older I get, the more I believe we are all in charge of our own destiny. We all have free will and must live with the choices we make, good and bad.

I don't like it when someone I know is in a bad situation and does nothing to change it, saying "oh well, it was meant to be and I can't change it." That's bull.

And I really like what Khanada said I fully own all of my fuck up's and can't blame any of them on fate.
