Is life not a matter of chance, but rather a matter of choice?

  • Life is not a matter of chance, but rather a matter of choice

    I agree with the following statement because nothing is ultimately random. Take a pair of dice. You toss the dice, they fly through the air maybe bounce into each other, then hit the ground/floor. The smallest movements in your hand will cause different outcomes, and then the bounce off from each other will change the outcome, ans so will the floor/table. But really, the toss would be the same from the start. Unless, of course, an outside force knocked them off the predestined course causing a completely different outcome.
    2 "random" guys walk into a bar. Why? They heard about this place downtown with the best scotch. And decided to try it out. Were they REALLY "random" guys?

    Those guys made choices that got them up to the point that got them to walk into that bar. Maybe if they wouldn't have talked to a friend about it they would have never went. Or maybe because it was sunny they decided to go. But it was those choices that got them there. Not random acts.

    It is a matter of the choices that you make that get you the results. If those 2 guys for example hadn't made the choice to walk that day and drive, maybe they would have been caught i traffic and not went. Or maybe it rained. It wasn't chance that got them to the bar. And even though this may seem obvious now, it is like this for all things.
