Tomorrows a new day, a new opportunity, another chance, and it also happens to be Friday! :D ( which is the weekend) So to everyone who hasn't had that great of a day/week, tomorrows a fresh start! This week, we talked about determinism in class and it's been on my mind a lot lately..
Determinism and Individualism : destiny vs. Free-will
Is what happens to you determined by you and your actions? Or by your destiny?
After thinking about this for a loooooooong time, I concluded that your fate is determined by both. It's a combination of destiny and your own actions. I believe that you're fate is determined by your destiny (god chooses your destiny) and the way you reach it is by your actions. And every human being is in charge of his or her own actions aka free will. But all our actions affect the lives of those around us. Our destinies are all tied together. It's all a domino effect. 'a butterfly from Brazil whose careless flapping has caused more tornadoes in Kansas than all the future sequels to The Wizard of Oz combined.Edward Lorenz ' A scientist passed out that idea at a conference in 1972 in the states. He didn't mean it literally but his point was that every little action will effect another person or event. That's basically food for thought... Does anyone have a different theory or opinion?
