Do you believe in karma?

Asked by SuperMouse (30845points) September 20th, 2008

We’ve all met them, the people who seem to break all the rules, treat people like dirt, commit at least four of the seven deadly sins on a daily basis, but seem to be sitting in butter. Do you believe these folks will eventually get what’s coming to them? Do you think they’ll eventually fall victim to the Karmic Ass Bite? Do you think they’ll pay in the next world? Or do you think they will just keep going on their merry way without any consequences?

I’d like to think so.

But you know that one saying?
Bad things happen to good people.
More than often, that seems to be the case.

I do not particularly believe in Karma, but I do think that people remember how they are treated by others. So when someone does a dirtbag thing to you and needs help later, if they are just a general dirtbag, no one is going to want to help in their moment of need. You can call it Karma if you want, but I think it is just people reacting to how they were originally treated.

i believe more in emersonian compensation. I high reccomend you read ” Compensation” by ralph waldo emerson. he has some interesteing views which you might want to ponder about regarding karma and laws of attraction.

I am a firm believer in the adage, “What goes around, comes around.”

I believe that one day, after s/he dies, this person whom I know, will find himself or herself standing before a hideous/ugly, fire-breathing creature (with 3 heads!) who will say to him/her, “I am going to moderate you for all eternity.”

Asking a question that’s been asked before is really bad karma.
Joking, off course. I’m as guilty of that as anyone.

My answer remains the same as in the question AC has kindly provided a link to.

I much prefer grace. Otherwise, we’re all screwed.

I agree with Nimis for the most part.

Though, I do believe random acts of kindness can help make your own day better (not just the receiver’s day)
