Hi mathaholic

I do not see how what you said is a con really is a con? I guess it's just a matter of opinion because I do not support fatalism.

Fatalism: the belief that what will happen has already been decided and cannot be changed.

Is it like: Therefore get up and prepare to fight. After conquering your enemies you will enjoy a flourishing kingdom. They are already put to death by My arrangement, and you, O Savyasaci, can be but an instrument in the fight.?

Yup, that's what other censuses did, so I decided to do so too.
