I was pre-destined to write that comment, even if I think I wanted to respond to your comments, it was written out there somewhere :)
Some make the commitment to believe strongly and they end up going to their particular services once a week, or have other spiritual outlets.
Some come to the conclusion that can only be proven in a personal way, and can not be proven to others because the logic of proving a negative is impossible.
And still others do not make a commitment either way and sit on the fence and never commit.
But the weakest excuse for believing is that it will not hurt anything if they decide to believe. And so they believe in pre-destiny because it is easier than developing and puzzling out a personal proof of its non-existance. It only shows a semi-self-aware individual.
