I was wondering if determinism is claiming that every single event is predetermined or not. I say every single event isn't, but maybe major events are. Major events as in events that can only take place after a bunch of minor events take place over a long period of time. For example: whether or not I receive a college degree is determined by a bunch events that take place over 4 years of time. Many different deviations would have to occur to ultimately decide whether or not this changes the fact that I will receive it in the near future.
Since some events rely on sub-events to take place, the bigger picture may not be tampered with. For example, clicking the submit post button would require a bunch of computational processes to take place before other users are able to see this post. So minor events add up to make major events occur.
Are my statements relevant with the notion of determinism?
