Luck or Fate?

Bristol University scientists say they will follow the lives of 14,000 children to "discover whether we are ruled by fate or create our own luck." Should have results in two years, with a few breaks.

(Anonymous; "Free Will Offering," Chicago Sun-Times, June 20, 2001. Cr. J. Cieciel.)

Questions. How can these scientists distinguish between fate and luck? How did this grant ever get past peer review?
