Do you believe in luck ?

I was watching an interview of a known Greek agnostic saying that he doesn't believe in luck and I started thinking what my thesis is on this subject, so I concluded that luck is a series of events favouring a person coincidentally, but I would like to hear your opinion on this matter.I wasn't sure in which catergory to post it, so if it's not a philosophical topic feel free to move it where you believe it belongs.See More

Welcome, Alexandros! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.

On a personal note, I've developed an animated gif technique, sort of “pull quote marries slideshow”. Samples are scattered across various groups, but you can find them easily by going to my twitter account. Each tweet has a link (after the description and before the hashtags) to a visually rich example here at Atheist Nexus. If you like them, please follow me

We invite you to join the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 720 discussion topics and 3700 members.
