But to believe ... dosen't that mean we are wishing ill on others and the world we share!!!
I really do not understand anyone's desire or religion for that matter to want bad things happening to others ... know that, that others could well be you  or someone you love!!!
Seems like all religious beliefs promote this thought of despising the nonbelivers ... amazes me ...

It has been my observation that most people create God in their own image, and as such, bad things creep into religion.  You always have some people who get the message, but I would say the unwashed masses usually don't fully get it.  And it is not necessarily their fault, they just have not been enlightened yet or they have been lead the wrong way.

A perfect example is many churches I have gone to are extremely judgmental about each other and especially about outsiders, which actually goes against what their own Bible preaches.  And that is the mild case.  Then you have people who use religion to justify their personal racial or political agendas, sometimes going as far as violence and terror, claiming they are justified by God.

That is why I always tell people that religion is man-made.  That does not mean God does not exist, but it does mean that since religion is man made and made in man's image, it will be flawed, like man.

In the Americas, when people say karma they usually mean "what goes around, comes around" or "you reap what you sow" rather than the actual Hindu meaning involving reincarnation.  It is similar to the Hindu meaning of karma except you get your pay back in the same lifetime, not future lifetimes.
