Karma or Determinism?

 

 The East call it Karma; the West Determinism.

The Laws of Cause and Effect elevated to the status of a scientific paradigm a few centuries ago,still rule our daily lives.

Quantum Indeterminacy and its potential consequences in the macro world seem a long way away from becoming a paradigm we live by.

In the meantime, we wonder:

Are we creat-ures of Gods, or product of evolution?

Do we have any power or influence in the creation of our own reality?

Do we have a destiny Determined by genes, birth, upbringing, past choices, God?

Can we change and determine the course of our existence?

Further more, can we Create?
