I Stubbornly Refuse

I stubbornly refuse to believe in predetermination, fatalism, and so on. My belief is that there are tendencies to certain outcomes. Like, a man falls in a rushing whitewater river and a powerful current is sweeping him toward the waterfall. He is prone to going over but if he’s alert enough, prepared enough, he can find a way to escape the current and survive. Probability is not necessarily deterministic.
