0: someone mentioned existentialism and determinism are diametrically opposed. then just which perspective one chooses will depend on how valid one believes the possibility of a deterministic reality (and science on general) to be?

: so..
: just how likely is reality to be deterministic anywho..?

I think it depends on how much you perceive reality as a closed system. Within a certain closed system anything's determined, but if you remove the cover, if you remove it's ends it's all chaotic and free again.
