I don't believe in destiny or fate or non-free-will mostly because of randomness at particle levels and my own beliefs (agnostic/atheistic)

But if you COULD look into the future, it would change. For example take the movie NEXT (great movie if you wanna rent it). Like he says somewhere in the beginning... "every time you look into the future it changes, just because you looked" (and now know what would happen thus changing it). He can only look into his own future and this one girl's future but even if there was no such limitation just KNOWING the possible future would CHANGE it BECAUSE you know it. Destiny isnt fixed... I believe you could change your fate, if it existed. The "fate" that people have talked about that they say will happen no matter what anybody does to change it requires the power of some higher intelligent being that wants that to happen and can influence events..

(this is a pretty easy one)
If you were to find out that your fate was to die in two days,
and this was truly your destiny, (in other words. no bogus phsychics involved) and you only know that you will die, but don't know the actions which will cause your death.
What is the one, surefire way to insure this fate does not come true?


Normdeplume trashed the destiny thing by pointing out you could commit suicide before then.
Knowing that action removes my death's certainty, I don't have actually to do it.
I'd switch channels and just continue living normally.

The greatest challenge to any thinker is stating the problem in a way that will allow a solution.
