Anyway do I believe in pre-destination? Sort of but I definitely believe we have free will.

Not so much as a pre-ordained as that everyone will get some challenges in their lives they have to deal with, the challenges and baserules ( your initial personality ) are set at birth, i think that could be the case but your actions on those challenges and the way we deal with our personality are part of the free will. Because if we are without a free will nothing that is happening on this earth is really to blame on us, and i for one think it is to blame on us.
If everything is preordained the universe would go stale because of the predictability, if everything is pre-ordained there is no experience to experience because the soul housing in us will know in advance what will happen, it's like tickling yourself; it's just not the same.
So yeah, the soul has a pre-ordained challenge (an experience it want's to life out) at birth but the rest is for us to decide, and us is the whole mind/soul/body thing together.

Chance is an every day thing, On a drive or a walk, things can and sometimes do happen, when was the last time you went left instead of right, or zigged instead zag so to speak, we hear stories all the time people go out for food, snacks and have horriable accidents, yet we still pack the malls every weekend.

I mean don't you think some accidents or deaths are more than just a one off anomaly - like the story of a little 3 year old Australian girl , Sophie who was badly injured when a car crashed into her pre-school, trapping her under the burning vehicle. Then in 2006 she was hit by a car as she was crossing the road in her wheelchair.
What are the odds ???
