Do you believe in fate? Then why do you….

I’ve always been puzzled by the people who do believe in it. I always ask them “do you look when you cross the road?”.

They usually reply “yes of course!”

To which I ask “Why do you look if you believe in fate?

They usually reply “But that is different”

To which I say “so you believe in it some of the time?”.

The classic film The Matrix contains the following dialogue:

MORPHEUS: Do you believe in fate, Neo?

NEO: No.

MORPHEUS: Why not?

NEO: Because I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my life

I think we all like to believe that we are in control of our actions and destiny. However, this is an opinion and not necessarily fact.

Personally I am a man of science, however, I struggle to decide about destiny. Science states that every action has a consequence. Isn’t that a form of fate?
