Hinduism claims that god is pantheistic . . . everything is god . . . in all things . . . . but not a personal god one can form a relationship with. Ever tried to form a meaningful relationship with a galaxy, cloud, rock or glass of water?
This pantheistic world view if taken seriously, should be able to answer a few basic questions:
- Karma is one’s good and bad deeds being recorded to determine if one must be reincarnated to pay off his bad karma. Question: if god is impersonal who is keeping track of all human beings good and bad karma? Where is the accounting office?
- Karma seems cruel not to tell people how and where they have come up short. Why keep an account but not tell the person so he can learn from it?
- Reincarnation involves coming back as some animal life to pay off prior bad karma. Question: if one returns as a bumble bee how does it pay off bad karma? Is it ‘told’ to collect double the normal flower nectar or what?
- Being so vague, how do I know that this concept is not just another of the Hindu myths?
