Couldn't get it to load for me so I will just answer the

Do I believe in Karma?

question:

Not that it catches up with everyone in this life.... seen too many bad people never "get theirs" and too many good people suffer most of their lives and die horrible fates.

Funny thing about karma, belief is irrelevant.

I like to think that karma does exist and that what goes around comes around. Sometimes it seems as if karma does not exist, but as someone said to me, maybe that karma will come around in the next life.
