Yes, The 'proof' is your question, it happened, you had no 'choice' but to ask it, the same as if you end up deleting it or someone reports it and ends up being deleted. I prefer to talk about destiny rather than 'fate', 'fate' seems to me too fatalistic. Here, I am in a good mood and I did you some homework for free, you're welcomed, yes you can say it's my destiny to reseach it for you: fate (n.) Look up fate at late 14c., from Latin fata, neuter plural of fatum "prophetic declaration, oracle, prediction," thus "that which is ordained, destiny, fate," literally "thing spoken (by the gods)," from neuter past participle of fari "to speak," from PIE *bha- (2) "speak" (see fame (n.)). The Latin sense evolution is from "sentence of the Gods" (Greek theosphaton) to "lot, portion" (Greek moira, personified as a goddess in Homer), also "one of the three goddesses (Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos) who determined the course of a human life." The native word was wyrd (see weird) --- destiny (n.) Look up destiny at mid-14c., from Old French destinée (12c.) "purpose, intent, fate, destiny; that which is destined," noun use of fem. past participle of destiner, from Latin destinare "make firm, establish" (see destination). The sense is of "that which has been firmly established," as by fate.

The question of the century. It's hard to really prove anything, but here's my opinion on it. The future isn't set in stone. I see fate as a long pathway that we all travel down. Connected to this path are a myriad of other paths, branching off in all directions. They all lead to different fates and outcomes, each with their own chain of events. Our choices that we make decide what paths we go down. As such the future is constantly changing. They could even lead to the same outcome, but just have different ways of getting there. The thing is we only ever see the current path we're on which makes us think it's all one road with no other options. That everything is already set to happen in one way. Which I don't believe is true, destiny can be changed.

Yes it is real. You will get the proof when it happens to you. You won't understand if anyone says it to you right now.

It depends if you believe in free will or not. If you do, then there is no such thing as destiny. But if you don't, then you will be doomed to live a limited life believing all the time that your decisions wont change a thing bcz what happens to you happens anyway regardless of your actions. I believe that i control my destiny and not vice versa.

I do not believe in absolute pre-determinism. We do have choices, some more than others. People make fate for themselves and others regularly. It can become a very complicated conflict of choices very quickly. Destiny seems to lean more on the probability side. I have always been destined to fail, as those who choose my fate, do so in hate.
