Is it Ever Possible to Predict the Future?

Huck Finn is a sceptic who has serious doubts about the Widow Douglas’ faith, yet he asks Jim to tell him the future.

If Huck is a sceptic, who has serious doubts about the Widow Douglas’ religion faith, why would he ask Jim to tell him the future?

What are we to make of those apparently conflicting sides of Huck's character? Are they, perhaps, not conflicting at all?  Explain your answer.

Was Jim serious when he gave Huck his “reading” of the hair-ball?  If not, what was he trying to do for Huck?

Is it ever possible to predict the future?  If so, give examples of when the future might be predictable. (A possible line of thought could be whether climate change is predictable.)
