In Hinduism and Buddhism, karma is the sum of a person’s actions in his past existence which decides his future destiny. Simply put, bad things happen to bad people. Usually religion is refuted by scientists, but here we have a rare scenario to the contrary.
SCIENTISTS STUDY VIOLENT CRIME AND KARMA
In a recent study, scientists examined patients hospitalized for unintentional gunshot wounds. Hospital-based programs typically focus on patients whose gunshot wounds are due to personal violence (assault). However, there is less information regarding victims injured by accidental gunshot wounds. Therefore, they want to see how the violence occurs before and after the gunshot wound. A controlled study took place in Washington for people aged 15 or older.
SCIENTISTS CONCLUDE KARMA IS REAL
In the results, scientists found that patients with unintentional firearm injuries were more likely than those with other unintentional injuries to have a history of violent crime in the past. Also, the same people were more likely to have been arrested than the other group. The facts are not there. Science proves it. Those who have a violent past come to understand what is happening to them. So keep that in mind.
DO WE NEED SCIENTISTS TO TELL US KARMA IS REAL?
While this study helps support the myth with facts, do we really need this data to tell us karma is real? Doesn’t it make sense that the bad guys finally get what they deserve? In today’s society, it may seem like the bad guys win, but we don’t follow them day to day. Of course, there are good people who suffer, but there are also bad people who suffer. Being bad doesn’t mean you get a free pass. It just means you’re more likely to get what you deserve later in life. Being good might not bring you the immediate fame and fortune of the crime variety, but in the long run it’s probably better for you. So next time, keep that door open for the old lady behind you. Karma could watch.
