I have no idea. I believe a way that is not of a common nature, yet is the most earthly of all religions.
meant to be is something people say to either uplift themselves when the outcome is negative or romanticize something positive. Destiny is an idea, in reality events, occurences, or paths crossed are just a product of choices we make that sometimes put us in pleasant/unpleasant instances with the product of other peoples choices. Perhaps it is in our nature but ppl seem to have a need to believe in something bigger than us whether it be god or destiny etc. I believe we create our life by choices we make and are at times impacted by the choice of others and it is up to the individual to create a life according to their idea of happiness or what they want for themselves.
That's is ur answer. Atheists do not believe in anything bigger, in divine beings or the universe working to impact our lives. To an atheist there is nothing more that what is here and what we are. Cause and effect and nothing more. If u are trying to find something deeper in terms of bigger than us, u won't find it from an atheist.
I don't think it is a 'who'. It means destiny (which I don't happen to believe in).
I believe people who say it just mean that something feels right.
Yes, gut-feel. That's the best description of it I think. It's true for me.
I believe that God is so much bigger than any of us can imagine.
That its in Gods hands. He expects us to fall so he may catch us.
I believe God writes our destiny; so when they say it's meant to be, that means they already supposed to happen.
It just means people like to think everything is planned.
We're all humans, we all tell ourselves sweet stories to sleep.
It can mean, although using superstitious language, that the necessary elements for it to work were not there.
