What is the Christian view?
Karma belongs to the silly religions of India and points East. A Christian who thinks karma is real is seriously confused in his faith. An atheist who thinks karma is real is also confused in his faith
not thinking logically.
Just because something is logical, or illogical to you doesn't mean it will be that way for everybody.
I've knosn a few Hindu grad students (silly wabbits) but dont know much of the faith.
Buddhism is observed in various ways, sometimes quite shallow.
There is deeply intellectual dimension to Buddhism that I am drawn to.
So far Im no more than the "Jack-Buddhist" that a boyfriend called me.
Some day soon, now that I am out of school, I plan to begin my studies.
Regarding logic, illogic, and faith, I find the requitement in Christianity, so perceived
at least by adherants, to uttrrly reject and deny logic, reason, and the most obvious
realities, favouring instead the vanity of inerrant reading with which they believe themselves gifted,
I find that to be appalling.
I could further characterize it, but there is nothing, zero, good to be said for it.
It would of course be illogical for an atheist to accept karma as something
affecting an afterlife, but then, as none do, it is silly to mention it.
As silly as suggesting that atheism is a faith.
