hey i was wondering, whats UG's opinion on the statement "Everything happens for a reason"

if you agree with it... why??

if you dont agree with it... why?!

sometimes i think things happen for a reason, but then i also think it could just be a coincedence or something like that

anyway.... opinions??
#2
Well, cause and effect. So yes. But not for some greater purpose.

But God does not move in 'mysterious ways'.

And we should be Stoic to a certain extent.

I believe every action has a consequence. So effectively, yes. Its all just like one big cascading loop that keeps causing more and more and more things.

Of course everything happens for a reason... I wrote this because you asked a question. I smoke so I can look cool. I scratch my balls because they are itchy. I rub my eyes because I am tired. I support Manchester City because I have a subconcious desire to support a terrible terrible team.... etc etc etc etc etc.

just something people tell themselves to try to feel better


Just like Religion and an afterlife, people are afraid of death being the end.

although i guess anything could be possible.

I don't believe in God.

He's not real in my Opinion.

I don't believe in Fate, or, 'it happened for a reason'.

Life is based on Luck. You can get Lucky, and you can be ****ed over completely, in many ways, and they are all random. Like tossing a dice.

well, say you were gambling or something & you rolled the dice, & it came up bad for you, because you wernt supposed to win so something else could happen to you later on, or something like that....
#14
suppose if time travel were ever going to be real (though, if it is, wouldnt somebody have come back?) then, that would prove everything happens for a reason wouldnt it?

cuz if things happen randomly, then theres no future, only past and present. so if we can travel into the future, surely that means our futures pre-destined, meaning everything happens for a reason...

or something like that at least

Everything happens for reason.... the reason he would of lost is because he bet on the wrong number. There is always a reason... there's no need to look deeper than cause and effect. There is always a reason.

#18
Yes and no. Some things are random. Other things are caused by something.

yeah that is basically what i meant. Random causes and effects, nothing really divine about any of it in my opinion.

ME

dont care if you think its sad or anything, cos that would mean i am fairly sad & i dont care XD
#23
i believe everything happens for a reason, when bad things happen that's what makes me feel a bit better

also life would be so meaningless if there isnt some higher force watches you or something

like the force of karma

Everything happens for a reason but a lot of it is coincidence still, the world isn't predetermined and there is no such thing as fate IMO.

I think if a teacher yells at you, it was because you disobeyed her or you didn't do your homework. That's about the extent to what I believe. That, to me, is karma.

Everyone's lives exist because I allow them to exist. That is the point to everything. In some small way you all contribute to my masterplan.
#30
of course not, if by 'reason' you mean some divine plan. Everything happens because it has been caused to happen. Cause and effect.

It was a joke. I don't care. There's a reason I didn't take philosophy.
