First of all, please don't start a religious war in this thread...
As an atheist, I came to think of this lately:
Assuming there is no god and that that the evolution is proven to occur, all our lives, actions and even thoughts are just the results of a giant chemical reaction.
If we think of how the universe and our earth got created.... there was that Big Bang, all chemical elements got thrown in all directions and somehow formed the first compounds. Some of them were more complex than the others....then the earth got formed.... life on earth started with simple things, such as algae and bacteria etc.... then more complex organisms.... then the modern human being got added.... (http://en.wikipedia....ry_of_the_Earth)
every being on this earth has thought and done things.
Every movement, every decision etc was just the result of this huge chemical reaction.
Do you understand what I am trying to explain here? If the history of the universe is truly a chemical reaction, then there should be a mathematical formula that lets you calculate what's going to happen next....But even that would be of no use.
You have absolutely no influence on anything since all your thoughts are just part of that reaction. There is no such thing as free will, luck/bad luck etc.... there's just that one destiny.
(after reading it again, the following part may be too fictive for some of you )
But what if mankind found out the formula.
What if we could change the destiny? What if you found out that you were going to die because of an accident in 10 years? If you avoided what is actually predestined, what would happen? What if it's already predestined that we find out about the formula and changed our destinies?
That formula about the chemical reaction would end up in that loop at that point or just make no sense anymore.... maybe that's the reason of life? Being able to look into future and change all things to your favor?
Did I write complete garbage or does this make you think a little?
