I'm not quite sure how to rate this as I am not a believer in a supposed force, principle, or power that predetermines events. I believe there is a cause and effect and, a Father-In-Heaven that is the architect of creation - He supports free-will for all those that abide within time's domain. Those that are a focus of man's inhumanity to man do not suffer by Divine predetermination.

Natural law is ordered; as you sow, so shall you reap, whether in words or actions. So, yes, we all are architects of the destiny we have created for ourselves in accordance with Natural law. There certainly is a Fate for those in concordance and those who are not. The 'way' in which we 'build' and 'rhyme' determines our Fate.
