Default Do Things Really Happen for a Reason?

What the title says.

if you define "reason" as "cause", yes, there is a cause for everything that happens. a person's death was caused by another person pulling a trigger, by a tree limb falling on them, by lightning striking in the same location they are, etc.

is there a good reason for everything that happens? no, this world is not that great, although a lot of people try to fool themselves into believing it is

People who state factually that everything happens for a reason are in fact idiots. StopThatTicking is correct in that everything happens due to a cause, but that's never what people mean when they say it. What they typically use the phrase for is to somehow pretend like bad news is either precursor to good news or as some sort of religious saying. Either way, FEH.

If things happened for a reason, i'd love to know the reasoning behind it.
As most of you you know, i've had cancer.
Last month, I got another kind.
I mean, wtf is that about?
Am I really that bad of a person?

God clearly gave you a bonus cancer to help out the pharmaceutical industry during the recession. Who are you to question His plan?

The only things that happen for a reason are the things that people can do. Above that, it might as well be throwing dice for all I know.

This doesn't have anything to do with religion, by the way.

It's actually made by the white man to keep me down.

But for all intensive purposes, everything happens for a reason. There's like some sciency thing about that.

Stuff happens......that's it
Deal with it.


I've never been one to wonder why shit always happens to me or someone I know, because I just don't care. It happens, I deal, and then I move on.
