"Well, the lion wouldn't be subject to karma because it's acting according to its nature and because it has to eat. It evolved to eat prey like zebras. It would die if it tried to live on savanna grass. So, not a great example. Karma relies…"

Really liked the comment about planting the seed of curiosity.  I think curiosity is what got me on track.  Question things.  Especially some of the ridiculous things we are told about religion.  Most christians cannot take it.  I think most of the people in favor of posting the 10 commandments could not tell you what they are.
