Purpose of Life? Fate....God? Choices? Freedom

It has been said that the Holy Koran says to live your life like you will die tomorrow as well as if you would die in 1000 years. It leads the question of purpose of your life and choices...Is there such a thing as fate? It seems to be a trap that if there is a God...then there is fate...The will of God...How can we be free of that? In esscence it takes away choice...It really means nothing because if God did not want something to happen then it would not...I find it difficult to believe that one Man can have the ability to destroy the whole species and all life on Earth....That will truly be the test of GOD...If Bush Decides to Start the War to End All...Let us end this grim discussion with a little Leonard Cohen...What is it to be free?

like a bird on the wire
like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
like a worm on the hook
like a knight from some old-fashiond book
I have saved all my ribbons for thee

and if I have been unkind
I hope that you will just let it go by
and if I have been untrue
I hope you know it was never to you

like a babe stillborn
like a beast with his horn
I have torn everyone who reached out for me
but I swear by this song
and by all that I have done wrong
I will make it all up to thee

I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
he said to me "you must not ask for so"
and the pretty woman leaning in her darkened door
she cried to me "hey, why not ask for more?"

like a bird on the wire
like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free
