Personally I would favor the freewill side; but some coincidences are so bizarre I think it points to "things happen for a reason"

The view on something defines if something was predestined.
When one looks at something at hand, depending on going forward or back on the line of cause effect, one speaks about created or predestined.
No, something that was predestined must mean that this point of happening must have been realized, no matter what roads before were taken. Something that is dreamt of, ah well
every situation is predestined, not?
Everything that needs to come your way will come, no matter what, that which is predestined is in yourself.
