I was with you up to here.  Are you saying you think karma is
just a belief? I thought it was more like a fact of nature, a
law, and operated irrespective of our belief system.  If a man
thinks gravity doesn't apply to him and steps off a cliff, he is
in a manner of speaking, predestined to fall until something
breaks his fall.

Can we act without generating karma? I think the answer is that
it is possible, but not normally for the vast majority of us at
this stage of humanity's development.  Several people have made
reference to intent.  I understand intent to color or modify the
results, but not eliminate them.

Great discussion!
