9/11 karma? Mar. 15th, 2011 @ 11:50 AM Reply

I have seen all the threads about how Earthquake struck Japan triggering a Tsunami is karma if that is true wouldn't 9/11 be karma caused.

You're comparing a natural disaster to an act of terrorism committed by humans. Not the same.

9/11 wasn't. Hurricane Katrina, however, was.

Also it's not karma. It's called deciding to live in a very unstable part of the world. It's not a matter of if you will be hit with an earthquake, tsunami, or volcanic eruption, but a matter of when.

We know at some point, possibly sooner than later, CA will be devastated by a large earthquake. The people living there could move away from the region, but if they choose to stay there they do so at their own risk. I have no problem if people want to live in an unstable area, but don't look for sympathy when the inevitable happens. People in certain parts of CA know they could be a victim of a mud slide, wildfire, or earthquake. Yet they build in the middle of these waiting to be disasters anyway.

i was stating you cannot compare the acts of god or ''karma'' to a disaster no matter how it was created i was just trying to show how stupid it is to. Call a disaster karma didn't mean to offend if i did I apologize.

I know, fuck karma, its LOGIC you fools.

an earthquake was BOUND to hit japan because of the probabilty and its only now its been a bad one.

karma would be something like britain deciding to start murdering foriegners and for no reason they had a really big earthquake despite there never being earthquakes in the region on such a scale.

Why would it be karma? Japan didn't do the 9/11 attacks.. or are you saying that Japan made jokes about 9/11?

Blah, you just don't understand it... Karma isn't a magical unknown force it's, in simple terms, cause and effect.

If you do good things, good things happen to you. Not because the universe owes you or because you've pleased some mythical god somewhere, but because the effect of good things, is more good things. The more good things you do, the more likely you are to be on the receiving end of other good things. This, is called Karma.

In Buddhism it's believed that the effects of good deeds reverberate throughout all time. So a good deed today has an everlasting effect on the future. This effect can find you, and effect you, in another life. It doesn't hunt you down and look for you, it just so happens that your next form is eventually effected by the chain of events put in place by the actions of your previous lives. In other words, we're all effected by what choices our ancestors made.

If you have lots of good karma, then you're more likely to be on the receiving end of good deeds not only in this life, but also your next.

Back to the original topic... 9/11 could be a result of Karma but not the tsunami in Japan. Japan is a natural disaster. 9/11 was the action of man... Americas bad Karma against Muslims might have resonated in their negative actions towards us. On the other hand, their negative actions towards Americans resulted in negative actions against them and their country. This is why negative karma is never defeated with more negative karma. Only good karma can undo negative karma.

The vast majority of Japanese people don't have the means or necessary abilities to move to different parts of the world. It has nothing to do with choice.

Stupid humans living on Earth... you do know that another giant rock is going to slam into your planet. It's not a matter of if, but a matter of when. And when a giant rock does slam into your planet, I'll have zero sympathy for you. That's what you get for living in the universe.

Whilst I somewhat agree with you Wade I do think your over simplifying things a tad, so it's the fault of the Japanese that their people are suffering and dieing due to an act of nature? Some countries are near tectonic plates they can't just go "fuck this shit, let's move to a country where earthquakes don't happen." By that logic everyone would be living in Europe and central Africa. It is not their fault and they deserve sympathy and aid.
