I believe there's a Grand Design and we are all part of this Big Picture. If you think you are free to choose anything in life try this choice. Choose to exit this Program and never return! You won't do it because its Part of your Grand Design! Same is true with lottery Tickets. Buy one tomorrow, and if its in your cards your a winner! Nothing happens by chance,Its all a part of the Grand Design! Tell us view of this?

I don't believe in random chance OR destiny. Multiverse theory is the way for me. Whenever something is decided by chance, the universe splits off into two or more branches, in each of which each possible outcome occurs. In other words, everything that can happen does. Because there are so many tiny little things decided by chance every day (does this particular molecule of O2 in the air get nudged by another this moment, if so, what direction?) the multiverse contains a great many universes. I have yet to determine what causes one's consciousness (or soul) to stay in one universe rather than another when it splits; perhaps it duplicates and the one in each new universe thinks it is the only one.

yes i see what you mean. Another way to think of it. Like a video game. There are thousands of possible outcomes, and each has been played countless times before. Doesn't matter which outcome we choose.......or something like that!

Yeah, kinda like that, except instead of thousands of possible outcomes there is a near-infinite amount, and instead of doing one at a time, we are doing every possible one all simultaniously.

I don't believe in this, most of life is yours to decide. I mean it is nice to believe in, in relation to good things. Your grand design to be to win the lotto or find true love and such, but what about the bad things? There's no way I can believe that if a guy gets drunk and drives, hits someone and kills them and himself - it was by a grand design. It was choices. A guy chose to drink. The guy chose to drive. The guy hit a bystander and by time and chance the bystander was there and struck and killed. Or those that murder, or rape kids, the grand design for those kids were not to be molested. So a design from above is certainly nice to believe in when is good things, but...it doesn't fit when applied to the bad.
