The definition of luck (or chance) varies by the philosophical, religious, mystical and emotional context of the one interpreting it. When thought of as a factor beyond one's control, without regard to one's will, intention or desired result, there are at least two senses that people usually mean when they use the term: the prescriptive sense and the descriptive sense. In the prescriptive sense, luck is a supernatural and deterministic concept that there are forces (e.g. gods or spirits) that prescribe that certain events occur very much the way laws of physics will prescribe that certain events occur. It is the prescriptive sense that people mean when they say they "do not believe in luck". In the descriptive sense, people speak of luck after events that they find to be fortunate or unfortunate, and maybe improbable.
