How about a different type of topic for discussion?

Free Will vs. Fate

"Free Will" means we are each in control of our own destiny.

"Fate" means everything is predetermined.

It has to be one or the other. What do you think?

Why does it have to be one or the other?

Put it this way. If time was rewound back to the instant you were born. Would you unknowingly live your life exactly the same? Or would something different happen?

Interesting to think about. I'm not sure what would happen.

I do wonder from time to time how my life might be different if I had chosen/be allowed to chose other paths. Examples:

-If I had been allowed to go to CCDHS for HS instead of SHHS. I got to go to Custer for farm shop, but my mother wouldn't hear of me going for everything else.

-If I had gone to work for Kenny Campbell instead of letting Dave Atkinson talk me into staying at D&L Meat.

-If I had continued to flirt with a beautiful babe from Broadus named Brenda I met one night in the Bison, rather than walk away because I was convinced I'd go to hell for having premarital sex.

I probably would have planned a career that would have had me move to Canada or Europe, so I wouldn't have ended up living in a country so stupid that it elected Donald Trump president.

Now I am too old and lazy to move.
