    Is it logically possible to know the future?

    This question stands on the understanding that the future is a direct result of present events. If however fate is true, then no matter what the events of the present the future exists. This then would mean that the future is possible to know. Fate or logic?

    My own thoughts are that the future is a direct result of present actions thus making knowledge of the future a logical possibility. However, logic can be defied and is many times by illogical reactions and reasoning. Ultimately the physical realm seems to be a logically constructed concept with illogical beings within it.

    You would have to know some future 'event' through scientific means. Even then, you can only be so accurate. If you add humans into the equation, then there can be no accurate knowledge of the future.

    I am a firm believer that some people can "see" some things in the future. Either by "seeing" or by dreaming. It's beyond logic, outside of knowledge and independent of fate.

    No because you would have to know all that could be known now and you don't.
