We have to believe kamma, re-birth and Nibbana on faith unless we can experience them ourselves.
No we don't.
Lord budda explains that the beings and the earth are a process of kamma , and expresses that
beings are processed by kamma
worlds are processed by kamma
kamma binds beings and earth as the hinge of a chariot wheel as ( kammana vattathi loko , kammana vattathi paja , ...............) in vasetta sutta.
I cannot remember the full pali verse , hope somebody will .
We can easily see the truth of this with the ill effects of ozone by CO in refregeration, effects of using chemicals for agriculture to gain profits, ill effects of commercial use of liquor, ill effects of using sex as a commercial venture , ill effects of mass killing of animals etc. against vegetable usage, to summarise , commercial ventures against five precepts.
The link between nature and kamma is not difficult hence to be experienced , if we open our eyes around us where we are living.
