  18. Fatalism • Write one moment of fatalism you went through. For example: • When the doctors told us that my grandmother had pancreatic cancer, I accepted it and did not fight it. Radiation and Chemotherapy were out of the question for me.

  19. Fatalism is a belief that events are determined by fate. Fatalism is a belief that we have to accept the outcome of events, and that we cannot do anything that will change the outcome, because events are determined by something over which we have no control.

  20. Fatalism • People around school are talking trash about you. Here are your two options: • Fight back, telling EVERYBODY that will listen that the rumors are false. • Go with the flow, and just accept what is happening, and know that your true nature will be known.

  21. Determinism • Variables in life, outside of your will, determine your fate. • Example: I am Asian, male, and of average weight and height. These variables determine who I am, what will happen to me. Based on these variables I will live to be 70. I will be good at math. I have a 49% chance of divorce. I make over 50,000 dollars a year.
