In a message dated 99-12-13 18:01:04 EST, you write:
It boils down to whether there is a moral equivalent of what goes around
around or in other words whether a core law of the cosmos involves some form
of moral feedback. That is core belief behind belief in reincarnation and
for all ancient traditions. It is essence of what is called "classical
natural law theory."
That presupposes that the ancient traditions have some evidential validity to
back them up and that the people who promulgated the ideas were honorable
folk not interested in feathering their own nests.
And the moon is made of green cheese.
If there is any lesson from history, what goes around does not come around
and the founders of religions are the not the sort of people you want for
neighbors, a more disreputable and dishonest lot never walked the earth.
The idea of some sort of punishment for nasty folk in another life is nothing
more than wishful thinking on the part of people who were too weak to carry
it out in this one.
