  • in my opinion:
    There is no law of karma. = law of karma is as simple cause and effect law. I believe it has been accepted from science point of view.
    A persons life is a random event. = this is the core of your limited understanding. read more about spirituality and experience life from other perspective.
    No two lives are alike. = true. everyone is unique.
    There cannot be uniformity in human kind. = true. variety is the basis of humanity and growth. sameness is comfort zone, it wont go anywhere, and the purpose we are here is to create differences, thus new ideas always born.
    Just like two stones cannot be alike so also no two lives can be alike. = true.
    So accept everything for what they are = true
    without trying to find explanation through imagination = this sentence comes from a limited perspective of your own experience. what you called 'reality' now is an imagination before it is manifested. imagination is the seed of manifestation of everything, that is why inventors or creators be able to manifest. And everything can be explain. The limited source, equipment, technology, and people's perspective is the cause why there are some event cannot be 'explain'. but in essence, everything can be explain.
