John Wooden, a famous basketball player and coach, once said, “I don’t believe in fate.” The height of John Wooden is just 178cm. It is not enough as a basketball player. His fate seemed to be sealed which was he could not do well in basketball. However, he still chased his dream step by step. At last, he succeeded. Similar to John Wooden, I don’t believe in fate either. Life is unexpected, fate doesn’t actually exist in the world and it always used as an excuse.
Life is complex and unanticipated. It is impossible to set people’s life before they born. Everyone’s every single idea can change everything. Butterfly effect is an example. The earth could get a significant effect just due to one butterfly. No one can predict butterflies’ movements. Therefore, future is unpredicted. It doesn’t matter if you were born in a rich family or not. Even though some people are poor and impoverished, they also can change their lives by themselves if ...view middle of the document...
Consequently, life is an unforeseen complication. Fate can not control people’s lives.
Fate is not real in the universe. To begin with, fate can be explained by science. For instance, it is not a fate that you meet strangers twice or win a lottery prize, both of them can be explained by probability theory. There are many formulas on the internet to teach people how to buy lottery tickets and calculate Lotto odds. Therefore, a lot of things in this world can be explained by science, math, psychology etc. Additionally, some people regard humans’ bias, fears or surprises as fate. In the past time, human beings didn’t learn too much about science and nature, so they believed in fate. Eclipses are good examples. In ancient times, when eclipses happened, people believed it would affect their lives. In fact, it is just a natural phenomenon. Now, there are still many phenomena people can’t explain, but everything happens for a reason or a cause. With the development of science, we have discovered more and believe less in fate. In conclusion, there is no evidence can prove that fate exists in the world.
Fate is always used as a pretext. Sometimes, we always sort failure into bad luck when we fail in something. For example, when some students fail in examinations, they always think hey reviewed very hard, but the terms they reviewed before were not in the papers. It’s not their fault, it’s just bad luck. Obviously, they just find an excuse for their failures. When people are extremely depressed in relationships, in career or health, they just think they are in their unluckiness. Perhaps it’s an excuse that can provide some comfort. The reason why they become unhealthy is because they don’t do exercise or maybe they work in horrible conditions. They broke with their partners perhaps due to their incompatible personalities. In a word, I don’t believe that fate can explain people’s failures. There should be some reasons in reality. Using fate as an excuse is baseless and groundless.
In conclusion, I never believe in fate since life is unpredicted, fate isn’t present in the world, it just an explanation for failures or things which are can’t be explained. Achievements of goals are from the effort you make.
