Free will is bound by human limitation. For example I will never be an Air Force pilot because no amount of free will can give me the visual acuity necessary for this task. Fate has overruled my free will.

So then free will is really the extent to which we realise our potential.

...and so fate is everything else which I do not understand and so have no control over. Ultimately then, the extent of our free will wil be realised in death. Live life guys!

ETHEREALMEEKLE- OF COURSE, I CANT JUST GO TO BED ONE NIGHT AND WILL TO BE SIX1/2 FT. IN THE MORNING SO I CAN BEAT EVERYONE AT BASKETBALL GAME THAT DAY THEN WILL TO GO BACK TO NORMAL THE NEXT DAY. THAT'S JUST MY PREDICAMENT, FATE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. IF BY MY CHANCE, MY PARENTS WERE BOTH SIX FT., THEN I WOULD PROBABLY WOULD BUT I'M NOT. SO OF COURSE FREE WILL DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO DO THINGS BEYOND REASON .

Not chance your parents heights were determined by their parents and theirs and so on it was the end result (or fate) of a particular set of genes.

Yes but it was his parents free will that brought them together. not fate, so it was free will that determined his height (while not his).

My dispute is not with free will but with chance. Free will only exists where there is fate because fate defines free will. If it were between chance and free will then there is no certainty that any actions would accomplish anything and then why would anybody be motivated to do anything?

If my above assumptions are right then fate and free will are relative to the individual. Since the individual was not born then it is fate, not free will that determined this course of action relative to that individual. However, for the mother and father, if they had a kid thgrough choice then that is there free will.

i dont believe in fate, as predetermination. but i believe in fate to the extent of chance, etheral didnt like the idea of chance, but i believe fate and chance are the same thing. they are both the uncontrolable factors surrounding free will.

But fate follows a set of rules whereas chance is just randomness and that takes all meaning out of our actions.

RANDOMNESS TO AN EXTENT, WHEN AN ACTION IS TAKEN THERE IS A CHANCE THAT SEVERAL EFFECTS WITHIN REASON MAY OUTCOME.

When an action is taken is there a possibility of there not being an outcome? But since when does chance have to stay within reason? Confining chance to reason is giving it the same conditions as fate because fate is a consequence to an action.

I think I understand what Transcend is saying. Really when he says within reason, he means within the practical limits of the known phenomenon changing other phenomena. A tree with normal DNA could hardly be expected to grow 10 miles in the air...but whether it will be wide, long or bushy etc., is all subject to some degree of chance. Thats from my position anyway...because I know so little! Whether that chance exists in the recipe of nature (or God)..well thats the real question-as has been said: Does God play dice?
