Is it true that there is no such thing as accidents?  

We have learned about the law of attractions, the natural wonders on how and why certain experiences are created, so which category do these accidents fall under?

hi nighty Big smile

well, I remember reading in Insurance about unforseen problems in the future .. and  imperfect knowledge  was mentioned. different events take place in the present , leading to another event in the future, and such events can't be predicted due to such imperfect knowledge of present events.

for example, take a car coming around the corner:

1. if he honks his horn/ flash his lights , we have knowledge that a vehicle is coming towards us, hence we should move out of the way.

2. if he doesn't honk his horn or flash his lights, we have no clue that he's driving towards us, and may not have the time to move out of the way, and get injured, thereby causing an acident.

hence , accidents  merely come under the  "unforseen events" category.

So, it is true that there is no such thing as accidents, as it was meant to happen either-way. There were always signs, but failed to pick them up, thus it was meant to happen.

sometimes it can be a loss of concentration, that can set off a string of events.  so it wasn't meant to happen. eventually everything happens as a result of "our" decisions. so nothing is "meant to happen". if that were the case, there would be no need for life to be led if things just happened.

All things happen for a reason, we may or may not want to recognize those reasons, but they do happen for a reason. Thus the same applies to things were meant to happen, e.g. dice rolls are a good example as the gambler will usually think that the dice are either for or against him when in reality (all things being equal), probability tells us that each number will be, in a sufficient number of rolls, rolled exactly as many times as every other number.

it isn't about not wanting to recognize a reason, it's just that things happen, not for a reason, but due to a reason. cause and effect, not effect for a cause.

lol in the dm this is the FIRST real debate I'm having. LOL

Thus you agree with me, that things happen for a reason cause there is no difference between  'for a reason' vs 'due to a reason'. In perception of all things, the accidents happen for a reason or due to a reason, but they happen cause they are meant to happen, cause there are no such things as just accidents!

ps.. I agree with you about 'real debate' taking place virtually for real! Wink
