• No. There is no such thing as fate (defined as a "predetermined course"). The consequences of acting on ones free will has a direct relationship with the outcome (also defined as "fate", but in a different context).
  • Choose your destiny or suffer your fate. Esther 4:14 For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
  • Logically they COULD co-exist. The more important question is: do either one of them exist?
    • 1465
      Actually, they couldn't co-exist. If there was such a thing as fate, it would mean that people do not have free will and that their lives are scripted, pre-determined.
      Not so. The one thing does not mean the other thing, nor does the one thing allow one to logically conclude the other thing. If you need examples of both co-existing: literature is full of such examples, beginning with ancient literature all the way to modern science fiction.
