I say no because is all GOD's plan.
He makes things to happen, but sometimes when you want something and you don't have it is because is not good for you.
God want you to believe in Him and in His father(our father in heavens).
He loves you as much as He loved His people.
For me believing in "luck" is like believing in "gods" that they don't exist.Is like believing in something that is not there.
God is everywhere, everyday with all of you.
I say yes because everything happens for a reason. Half the things in your life that has happened have probably happened because of luck. Like meeting that guy or girl when you were supposed to be somewhere else then later on down the road you find out that's your soul mate.
Luck in my opinion is real because it you are in something tragic and some how u don't get hurt, then that is luck. If some one get ran over by a car still live that was luck. I know people say God knows what is going to happen to you before it happens. But that's not all true there is some luck involved, like winning the lottery no one can make it by skill.
Luck does exist. Like if you buy a lottery ticket one time and you win, that is definitely Luck!!! Lucky things happen each and every day. Not everything is skill. Luck happens all the time like getting in a crash and being the only one surviving, that is Definitely luck. Luck does exist
If people do not have something to believe in then what is the point of living? Believing in luck is the driving force that keeps people going to work and positively thinking. We are all working towards a greater goal in life as far as the quality, but we rely on luck to help us out every now and then. This also plays into our bad moments in life. Someone may be having a bad day and the person in front of them may buy their meal. That is one form of luck and it also serves as a pick-me-up to that person.

It's whether one capitalizes and believes in it or not.
One person walks out of a plane crash, everyone else dies--luck!. Two identical cars have a head on crash, one driver lives one dies -- luck! Obviously its is just chance. It is true that over long periods odds even out, but over shorter periods it is lumpy. Other words you could flick 6 heads in a row. Though over a million samples it should even out, but somewhere within that sample you might find 6 heads in a row. So you could be lucky and find $100 or be unlucky and get run over by a car.
More interestingly, can one influence these chances, could the act of leaving for work 5 minutes early change your luck, would your chances change if you say put a spoon in your pocket. Or simply wear a different shirt change your odds...Possibly. But would it be significant? How would you know.? If it can, maybe the idea of a good luck (or bad luck) charm or talisman isn't as silly as it sounds.
I think it does as you see all of these videos on YouTube of people for example missing cars by like 2mm and shooting a basketball net from a helicopter and stuff. It's not scientifically proven but the footage supports it. To see what I mean, on YouTube type in "Luckiest People Alive"
When someone wins by way of chance they are lucky. What else would you call it? Good fortune? A gift of fate? It certainly isn't skill or knowledge when people win something like this.
Similar experience can occur in games like pool or poker. No matter how well you play the other player can simply get lucky with cards dealt and hitting the ball.
Yes, people are fortunate sometimes, but I believe that is because people EARN it not because of some supernatural force. There is no supernatural force controlling us. If someone happens to have something happen to them, then that means that was meant to be. Luck is just letting our imaginations run wild on things we would like to happen in the future.
To believe luck is something I can own, is a bit far fetched. I'd sooner believe a deceased family member is helping me than there being a controlling energy over physics called "Luck". If fact on the list of God, ancestors, telepathy, and other extra dimensional influences, "Luck" is the last thing I'd think is a possibility. I'm not even going to get into the infinate universes theory from quantum phsyics.
God plans everything out beforehand. People use the word luck as a definition of good things that happen to them. If you win a game. "Oh that's lucky" if you happen to find 20 dollars on the street- is it really lucky? Luck simply does not exist because things happen for a reason, luck is just a name used to describe things that happen to people, and there is no supporting proof.
I believe there is a reaction to every action, this isn't luck however. People make good or bad things happen with free will. I don't believe that it is pure luck that someone may, for example, write an award wining novel or say kick the winning goal. This comes from working hard. I don't believe in good or bad luck. I believe people make their own choices and with those choices comes the aftermath.
Good things will happen to you as will bad things. If you never dread on the bad and champion the good, you'll probably think your a lucky person. A great view on life I will not deny whatsoever.. "Luck" exists in the sense of simply coming out on top of any given situation. "Luck" being this indesecribable forece that is harnessed with such idiotic tools like rabbits feet or reused underware... does not
The question is replete with ambiguity. It depends on how one would define luck.
If you say that it is a supernatural force and some people are inherently luckier than others, then I do not believe luck exists. If you say that luck is the happenstance of unlikely events occuring throughout one's lifetime, then I think that luck does indeed exist.
No, I don't believe that luck exists. Although many people would like to think that we are affected by supernatural forces of nature outside of our control, there has been no concrete proof to show that any sort of luck exists. People have trinkets, rabbit's foots, and other lucky charms because it gives them the sense that they will be lucky, but science has yet to prove that luck is anything but a fabrication.
Just because you eat Lucky Charms every morning, doesn't mean you'll have good luck for the rest of the day.
Like players in the MLB, that do their sequences before getting up to bat, whether they would tap their right foot first with bat then their left and spin around 19 times, or spin the bat twice, rub their foot in the dirt 4 times, do the hokie-pokie, do the sign of the cross 2 times because once isn't good enough: no matter what they do, they are just changing their mentality and confidence, not their outcome. You can't prove that their sequences actually work. It's their mentality that changes which helps them hit the ball and get on base.
They could rub their foot 10 times in the dirt for their sake, and the pitcher could throw them the nastiest curve balls they've ever seen before and they strike out. How do their sequences play into this now? They don't. It's the incapability to hit it because they did not prepare enough. Not because they only rubbed their foot in the dirt 9 times.
I believe that luck is an escape route to say that things happened, even though it was the aftermath of a situation/something. It's the unfortunate moment of others which has given them success. I want to also point out the quote (by an anonymous person) that states "I make my own luck." Basically stating that oneself creates his own future and sets himself up for his of success/failure.
Luck doesn't exist; looking at some of the arguments on the left people often cite instances where people made off better than others in unlikely circumstances. Everything happens for a reason and given the right data can be physically predicted such as some people surviving a crash and not others. Some people have bigger, stronger bones than others allowing them to survive things others cannot, just to give one example. In a crash people are also in different places relative to the impact of the other car and thus it has a different effect on some than others, often meaning the difference between life or death. Take the lottery for another example; to keep it simple there are 10 tickets. Some one wins, and the other 9 lose, but when the one person wins, it isn't because of some magical force we call 'luck', it's because of their unlikely, but far from impossible, chances of winning.
People say that passing exams without revising is luck, bit it's not. The person who passed the exam knew the answer to the questions on the paper. You don't revise 2 add 2 everyday to know that it equals 4, do you? You just REMEMBER that it does.
Another 'lucky' incident is that no one sees you there when you're hiding. IT isn't luck, they just didn't LOOK anywhere near your hiding spot to know you were there.
Last point. So if you toss a coin hoping to get tails and you get tails, IT ISN'T luck. It's just that it had half a chance of landing on heads and half a chance of landing on tails, so it had to land on one of them and it was tails.
