      No. Quantum Mechanics won’t allow it. QM states that you can’t know something is going to happen, only the probability of it happening so future events can’t be predetermined.

      Not really, there is no reason to believe for the universe to be pre-determined. In fact, its a chaotic system so there is no real scientific basis for the concept ‘destiny’. It’s of course a comforting idea that some things are simply ‘meant to be’, but just wanting that to be so doesn’t make it true.

      do you mean that the future has already been written somewhere?
      well, it would take all the fun out of life, since it means that we are not free to chose anything, and there is no way to influence our future!
