There is no evidence that states people can unquestionably know whether fate or free-will is real. Most people believe that their fate is chosen by God, and free-will is the concept of making your own choices without fate intervening. I believe in a combination of both free-will and fate. There are arguments to support both concepts; however, I think that everyone has free-will, and the choices made through free-will lead to fate. Although many people will argue that there is only free-will or only fate, with both free-will and fate people are given a feeling of independence and distinguish that life has a purpose which are both shown in Macbeth.

It may not seem like it, but free will was given to mankind by the gods or God. So in turn the gods decide the fate of everybody when they created man. It was already decided and can not be changed.
Fate refers to the idea that certain things happen because they are meant to happen, whereas free will is the ability to act as one pleases without the interference of fate. Throughout Julius Caesar, Shakespeare discusses the battle between the free will and the fate of a person. By the ending of the play it is made obvious that he believes that free will and fate coexist. Shakespeare allows the theme of fate and free will to intertwine with, and take a role in, the assassination of Caesar.
