    Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance. - Senator Robert F. Kennedy

    No because if it existed the world would have spontaneously combusted by now.


    I have always found it interesting how many people have believed in something as unjustifiable as something as Karma.

    Karma is more unbelievably unbelievable than most things that I find unbelievable (pretty much everything).

    Can't believe this is 50/50. You really think there is something out there that keeps tracks and weighs our actions, and then causes another action to magically happen? Come on...

    Coincidence and chance are nothing worth hiding from.

    Kind of. If you act nice to others, it's (very slightly) more likely that somebody will do something nice back to you. But it's stupid to think there's some kind of force out there that rewards people for being good.

    See, but isn't that a separate issue.

    Edit: I didn't catch your edit.

    I mean, I "believe" that too...but I'm not sure that's really what most people think "karma" is.

    But valid point.

    BTW Karma is the belief that your actions in the past life carry over and effect your quality of life in this lifetime, it is not and has never been 'what goes around comes around'

    And what's with the religious discussion in this thread? It's alright for religious people to post about god but when I do it's an infraction? EDIT: Thank you mods
    Karma has come to mean exactly that for many... I believe there is something to it, but not for mystical reasons.

    I don't even think its that slight. Go around being a dick to folks chances are someone will punch you in the face.

    It exists but not on a grand scale.
    No if you help an old lady across the street you're probably not gonna win the lottery the next day. And if you steal a candy bar from the store you're not gonna get hit by a bus while crossing the street.

    But on a personal level for the most part if you treat people well and do the right thing you will get it back to some degree. And if you are a dick to everybody you are not likely to gain a lot of others respect. And obviously there are exceptions to the rule there are plenty of good people who are down on their luck and *******s who are on top of the world and get everything they want. But on a small level karma does exist

    If there was some evidence for it, I might believe it. But karma is nothing but wishful thinking. It would be nice if good deeds were rewarded, but life isn't fair. Why would karma exist?
