In case you missed it, Sharon Stone stirred some controversy when she stated that the recent earthquake in China was caused by Karma; in an effort to seek out revenge for the government's brutal treatment of the Tibetan people.
So the Elders and I decided to launch our own investigation. We got out a few books like the Dhammapada, Upanisads, Bhagavad-Gita and a few books about something called "Zen" to see what we could find. It didn't us take long to give up our research because none of these books had any pictures in them or frame by frame action or characters attempting to teach us eternal wisdom through speech balloons. We can only assume that this hero they call Karma is the same as all the rest; no utility belts, planes or cool cars, and certainly no idea on how to command a Galaxy-class starship.
We would like to call out to our friends who get derive their knowledge and wisdom through comic books with no pictures and people who find their spirituality inside faiths that have never even ran a weekly television show. We would like to tell them that this kind of thinking is complete nonsense.
There is a better explanation on why people endure these bouts of nasty weather and wicked natural occurrences.
It is because we as a people have turned our backs on the Justice League and Starfleet. No, our Heroes do not cause these natural disasters, supervillians do. But they have the ability to stop them if we could only bring ourselves to ask.
Picture this: the Weather Wizard decides to reek havoc upon humanity because he is evil and loves to see people in fear. The Flash has stopped him on numerous occasions. But if we can't even be bothered to get out bed one day of the week to gather and offer Him thanks, why should He bother to get out of bed and stop the Weather Wizard or any other member of the Rouge's Gallery when they decide to rob and steal and create massive diversions in order to do so.
You see, the answers to all these problems are simple if you just stop and think about it for a few minutes. There isn't any need to understand or explain things like earthquakes in terms of tectonic plates or any other kind of scientific mumbo jumbo. There are forces at work out to destroy us all and if we don't surrender ourselves to Batgirl and the JLA, we will all perish. Bad things only happen to bad people and bad people is anyone who doesn't have enough faith in the Batcave and anyone who refuses to acknowledge that Superman was sent here from Krypton to save us from our sinisters.
If we live right and follow the path laid out for us by DC Comics and Star Trek, everyday for all the world will be warm, breezy, and filled with rays of sunshine.
