On karma

Karma, like heaven and hell, is a seductive concept—and for the same reason. The natural world has no strong force for (or understanding of) justice or the redress of wrongs/reward for good, and so superstition imagines one for the satisfaction of the sufferer. However, like the Christian promise that all will be made right after death (an acknowledgement that it cannot be done in life), it is mere wish fulfillment and apophenia and utterly baseless in the materialistic cause-and-effect mechanism of the universe.
