Many brands of [[theism]], the [[belief]] in a [[deity]] or deities, believe that everything has a [[purpose]] and that nothing is arbitrary. In these philosophies, God created the universe for a [[reason]], and every event flows from that. Even seemingly random events cannot escape God's hand and purpose. This is somewhat related to the argument from design, the argument for God's existence because a purpose can be found in the universe.

Arbitrariness is also related to [[ethics]], the philosophy of decision-making. Even if a person has a goal, they may choose to attempt to achieve it in ways that may be considered arbitrary. [[Rationalism]] holds that knowledge comes about through intellectual calculation and deduction; many rationalists (though not all) apply this to ethics as well. All decisions should be made through [[reason]] and [[logic]], not via whim or how one "feels" what is right. Randomness may occasionally be acceptable as part of a subtask in furtherance of a larger goal, but not in general.[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbitrary]
