If Destiny exists, it doesn't matter what I believe or do, because everything is predetermined.
If Destiny does not exist, and I believe it does not, I will go about my life normally.
If Destiny does not exist, and I believe it does, I might refrain from doing anything because I believe everything is predetermined.
There is no way to know whether it exists or not, and if it did, there would be no point in knowing!

also if you believe in destiny you also know that you cannot know what your destiny is. If you are ill, you are ill until you are well or die. Either way is your destiny. Pre-determining your own destiny is a supposition. if he is ill he better go to the doctor, we are not guaranteed tomorrow.

[*]Maybe it is an obvious reaction to events like that occuring that causes every living thing to react to these events in a certain way...
For istants if your are sick you might want to get well
[*]Or maybe, if it is destiny, it is impossible for you to have a choice of what you want to do, or be put in a situation that can change you destiny. (If u know what i mean)

Destiny is simply a function of "cause" (and effect) over time.
Just for fun, a little pseudo-math explanation follows..
D = Destiny
U = the Universe
t = time (where t > 0, ie. the Universe exists)
If we define Destiny as simply being the state of the Universe at any given point in time, then we can represent it by: D = U(t)
b = your time of birth
d = your time of death
F = your Free Will, or set of causes you influenced directly.
C = Set of all causes outside of your direct influence. (forces of nature, the free will of others you don't know, etc.)
Then the state of the Universe at any given point in time can further be represented by this function: U(t) = C(t) + F(t)
*where F(t) exists only for (b < t < d), ie. while you're alive.
Since your Destiny is a subset of U(t), it can also be said that: Dy = C(t) + F(t)
We could try to break F(t) down further and debate if it can ever be bigger than C(t) or if it even has limits (as in, is b
In essences, your Destiny depends in part on your Free Will.
Exactly how much can be up to you!
Use your Free Will to make your own Destiny!
CHOOSE to LIVE YOUR LIFE!!!
..just in case F(t) = 0 when (t > d) is true.
