Okay, silly question.
Do you guys believe in something like karma, I mean physically, not spiritually, like what goes around comes around?

Karma is a word. It means punishable stupidity. It hits people who does questionable things while failing to cover-up their mischiefs. In the fluffy, unicorn, perfect world intelligent evil people would get punished all the time. In reality it's naive stupid people that gets it.

Example:
The British minister who got sacked for browsing porn on his work computer while working. What an idiot. How hard is it to buy a separate PC with a telecommunication-dongle or have a "pad" with DLd offline porn on it. Noob.

Honey-traps is also another word for karma. In the law enforcement world. Intelligent non-naive folks smell honey from a mile away.

Yes. people get their due. Always. I could go into a very complex explanation as to why I feel this way, but the end result is yes I believe in it. peoples lives and experiences reflect who they are, stupid people live stupid lives because they do stupid things and then stupid things happen to them in response to how stupid they are. shitty people with crappy motivations do shitty things and then shitty stuff happens to them. On the outside you might not see them suffering, but think about it this way: would you wanna live their shitty little lives? Probably not. The life reflects the liver. There is no two ways about it.

Yes, I believe in karma to an extent. I've had people treat me like dirt and then had the chance to see those individuals suffer harsh treatment. Now, I didn't laugh or make light of that person's misfortune, but deep down it was nice to see someone who was nasty to me get their comeuppance.

I believe that ultimately there are consequences for everything, but not in a way quite as simple as "karma". So my answer is, no - I don't believe in karma.

There are consequences for one’s actions, but the universe we live in does not show any predictable statistical signs of having an inherent sense of fairness. So no, Karma probably is just another one of those things people have made up to make themselves feel good about their lives.

It really depends on the situation.
Can't say in general that I believe in it, but sometimes it just happens because of really fucking stupid decisions.

Though actions do have consequences, good things still happen to bad people and bad things still happen to good people. The problem with karma is that it can lead to victim blaming because usually when something bad happens to someone else, people like to assume that it was because of something that they have done. Though that is the case a lot of the time, that is not always the case.

As much as I'd like for karma to be real, I don't think it is.

Usually when it comes to dumb choices and actions being made, people get what they deserve. Just because doing stupid things tends to end up in a stupid result.

However, it doesn't work when it comes to giving evil people punishment. While some of them do get what's due, a ton of bad people keep getting away with shit.

So you guys believe bad things eventually happens if somebody doing stupid decisions,
even they can get away with it for a long time.
Fair enough.
