Let me start off with a story.

I was biking to the nearest Dairy Queen which is about a mile away (it's like McDonalds, but not as popular and pricier). When I got there, two boys were trying to get me to their register and coming up with bogus reasons like, "He has AIDS," and, "I'm hotter," and "That guy picks his nose."

I turn to the man on the left and order one cheeseburger and one Hot Fudge Sundae. This costs about $4.56 (about 2).

I paid in pennies.

By the time I had given all the change, the cheeseburger was only semi-warm, but was still hot enough to be eaten, and the cashier was pissed. Anyway, when I was biking home, it started to pour down. The paper bag was so wet that it ripped and my burger had fallen into the dirt. That's just freakin' lovely, and by the time I was home, my shirt seemed as if it was in a pool. Same for my pants.

I ended up throwing away the burger and just eating the sundae.

So, bad karma, or just crappy weather today? And do you have any karma stories yourself?

Well, Karma is the whole everything you do, influences what happens to you right? Like, if I kicked a puppy, than something really bad is supposed to happen to me? If thats the case, then, what exactly did you do bad to have your burger fall in the dirt, and get soaked?

I'm saying that paying in pennies caused it to rain (if karma exists).

Not one of the happiest men in the world.
And then... he died because nobody wanted to risk treating him.
So, good Karma there eh?

He had a pretty good life for his actions. Compare it to FDR, an overall good guy of the same period.

Well that's not the way that (the supposed) Karma works. If you kick a puppy and never repent it and do nothing to make it better you'll lead a normal life according to your last life's karma, and then when you die you'll be reborn to be something of a lower creature (like outside a cast, I guess that's pretty low).

That depends on what you regard as a 'good life'. I think that Stalin didn't find his life very satisfying as he lived it and he most probably had lost the ball somewhere, so he probably didn't quite know what the hell was going on by the end of his life. I'm quite sure he was pretty sad a big chunk of his time, which is kind of a cute thought: a sad tyrant just wanting someone to talk to.

If he'd been Capitalist he could have rang up any number of lines to talk to young women for as long as he liked.

Also, I hate the philosophy of karma. That would mean that everything bad that happens to me, I deserve it.

And if you had really bad karma you'd have slipped in the rain and broken your spine while your face landed in the soggy remnants of the burger. Think positive - it could be so much worse!

I'd like to see science prove karma. If it's true, I'll start repenting, and fast.

Is there a limit to how much bad karma you can have? Like, if you reach -10,000 karma points Buddha says "okay, go **** yourself, you're getting reincarnated as a diseased, crippled retard with Down-syndrome at a Cambodian prison camp"? Just wondering...

You can type in a "cheese stake Buddha's" to receive + 1000 karma.

According to Karma, you should spend your current life doing as much good things as you can so your next life won't be as shitty. You might even be reborn to be a priest if you're really good.

I think that definition of karma would be as it relates to Budhism...I'm not entirely sure if there are other definitions of karma...

The concept of karma doesn't seem fair. Your next incarnate will have no knowledge of your previous life, and no remembrance of what he did wrong or right. It's like punishing an innocent man (or, alternatively, giving a man rewards he doesn't deserve).

I know that there must be certain stuff you know from a previous life since the idea of Budhism is that you learn from all your lives and then accept death (no reincarnation or heaven or hell) once you reach enlightenment...or something like that. I can't find my book on Budhism anymore...

Not exactly. It's like punishing a criminal suffering amnesia. The basic idea is that you know you've been a naughty boy because of all the shitty things that happen to you, and you've got to be as good as you can in your current life as to ensure your next one won't be as shitty. What's unfair about that?

Oh yeah, and Dairy Queen? That's like the second-most suspicious name for a fast food restaurant I know.

Well, you're a completely different person. You have a new life, a new brain, and probably a new personality. How can you be held accountable for things that happened in your past life?

Do you believe that a child should be punished for the crimes of his parents? That belief is no more and no less fair than the concept of karma and reincarnation.

Of course, this is no reason not to believe in karma. If karma exists, it exists. It doesn't need to be "fair".

Because you're the same person, only reborn? If you believe in one aspect of it then why not all? Karma is laid down to you on the premise that you've lived a life before this one and you're the same person only now in a new body.
If karma exists, it exists. It doesn't need to be "fair".
While that is true, I still don't think it's particularly unfair either... It's a lot better than a lot of beliefs where your crops die because you didn't sacrifice enough neighbouring tribesmen or because you didn't perform a complex ceremony as to please a dozen gods. Not to mention you'd have to kill non-believers along with yourself to go to paradise or that you have to pay money for each of your sin to get to heaven and that's all you have to do to make it better.

I don't know, the idea still seems counterintuitive even if you are the same person. You don't remember who you were in a previous life. You won't even remember what you did wrong. It's like a justice system where you can be thrown in jail without even being told what your crime was.

Now, I'm not arguing that Buddhism and Hinduism are necessarily more retarded than other religions. But the whole idea seems pretty mean to your current incarnate.
In the karma system, you could live a perfect live and still be in abject misery because of what your antecedent did.

Yeah, I see that. But you know, every time you screw things up or anything you can blame it on your last life... At least Karma doesn't give you high expectations for your current life promising you all the good stuff here and now. It's justice in the long run I guess? Though the point is trying to be so good that you don't have to be reborn anymore.

Speaking of Karma.. I accidentally hit a red truck this morning while parking and it left this huge scratch on it.. and it turned out to be a brand new Chevy. Dang it.. my insurance is gonna go up like crazy... I felt so stupid after hitting it. I was sure that I could make it, but it was off by like a tiny bit..

Edit: oh, and I'm not sure what this has to do with karma... but it's just an unfortunate event that happened to me..

I used to drive home after getting drunk, but I had to stop after some moms got "MA-D-D."
