Come to think of it, it can also be free will if one engages in risky behaviour.
If a drunken driver hit you, is it your free will or his?
Nobody determined you should get hit, a drunken one has no will, let alone free!!
The driver made the choice to engage in risky behaviour. That is free will.
Probability decided that I was the one to be hit. That's fate.
Fate is "force predetermining events", there is no predetermination. A gazelle is killed by lion or escape from the lion, is just accident, neither the gazelle have the free will that help it to escape, neither there is a fate that determine it to be the food of the lion.
That's why you house-train them, so there will be no more accidents. That's free will.
Yes. I agree that it is both free will and fate.
We can change our destiny of fate as well in terms of Feng Shui.
How do you know your destiny in order to change it?
I looked straight up and it was a big, falling rock. Unfortunately, stepping aside is not an option. I've got to figure out a way to crawl over the big, brick fence that surrounds me.
Feng Shui tells us about our obstacles and we will act upon it to avoid or reduce the effect. That is if you believe in Feng Shui.
I tried it and have witnessed the effect of Feng Shui. Basically, it is all about the Qi energy flow within your house as well as your personal Bazi.
Free will: The decision to apply for a loan.
Fate: Whether the loan is approved or not.
Free will: The decision to apply for a job.
Fate: Whether one is hired or not.
Free will: The decision to bet red or black.
Fate: Whether you are right or not.
Free will: The decision to make a bunch of posts on this thread to run all my God-titled posts off the frontpage-hubtivity on my profile page.
Fate: Looks promising
Free will: Deciding to take a break.
Fate: Permitted it.
Free will: The decision to complete this task.
Fate: Permitted completion of task.
Free will is the ability of agents to make choices free from certain kinds of constraints.
Destiny or fate is a predetermined course of events. It may be conceived as a predetermined future, whether in general or of an individual
Just as I told, the Gazelle has the free will to run or not, but has no free will not to be eaten by the lion. There is no predetermination that the gazelle be eaten by the lion, depends on who can out run whom. Just catching the gazelle will not ensure that the lion is able to eat it. If the lion can eat it, it survive and tell the story, if not nobody knows about it.

Free will or fate? I think most people believe in free will, but I suppose I could be wrong. It doesn't seem to matter whether someone is a theist or an atheist as to which they believe. It just seems like a personal thing either way. I've done a thread like this before I'm sure, but I want to...
