Why do bad things happen to good people?
The age old question, if people are good why do bad things happen to them? Is it fair? Do they deserve it? What do you think the reason is?
My personal belief is that there is no force governing the world, like karma or a deity, that would work to make the world fair. I think bad things happen to good people because everything is random. Or at least I'd like to think that's the case, because otherwise whatever higher power is governing the world is terrible for making good people suffer.
I think bad things happen to everyone, good or bad. If you had 100 bad things and divided them equally then 50 would go to good people and 50 would go to bad people. You'd notice the 50 that go to the good people because we like to believe that good people don't deserve bad things happening to them. You don't notice the other 50 bad things happening to bad people because no one cares what happens to bad people. So now you have a dilemma. Are good people good because everyone cares about them? Are bad people bad because no one cares about them? All answers just bring more questions...

Can't bad things just happen? Or, do bad things happen for a reason?Some people act like it is one's own fault that one gets cancer (e.g., not eating right) or getting robbed (one acted like a victim) or even for suffering a natural disaster (for putting out a negative vibe). What do you think and...
