    Default fate vs destiny

    What do you think is the difference between "fate" and "destiny"? I searched the internet for their definitions, but the more I read, the more confused I get.

    Destiny - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Read the entry under Fate.
    The author doesn't want to quibble about whether he means fate or destiny, or whether there is a difference of not, so he uses both. This is common.
