“Karma” – wishful thinking?
“What goes around, comes around.” Huh?
This is not to discuss what “karma” ‘actually means’ or how some religions/belief systems “interpret” karma. I use this word loosely in the way it is used in the West and in “popular culture.” That is, one would be punished for his/her wrong by some universal forces which would “make him pay” in the precisely same manner, extent, or proportion – not in some “afterlife” but during his lifetime. Similarly, the “good deed” doer will be rewarded through the laws and forces of some “karma.”
I do not “believe” in any such “karma.” To me, it is clearly the absurdity and the form of wishful thinking for those who want to be in denial, lie to themselves, and hope for some resolution that would never come.
Observations show that the most despicable and fetid criminals continue stealing all resources, exploit, deceive, abuse (such as animals and nature on a large scale), etc. – and nothing “bad” happens to them but they continue prosper massively. Shockingly, the majority of the misguided, moronic public praises those criminals and does not wish to understand what is going on. Then, those same misguided say: “What goes around, comes around.” Huh?
Is there any scientific, observational, or anecdotal evidence that allows to consider the concept of “karma” as legit?
