Buddhism doesn't recognize the idea behind Sin because in Buddhism, instead, there is a Cause-Effect Theory, known as Karma, or action. In General, Buddhism illustrates intentions as the cause of Karma, either good or bad. Furthermore, most thoughts in any being's mind can be negative. sin or not sin...?

so every bad attitude, negative behaviour, will get revenge ? like the cause - effect theory ? ... that's sounds so logic. Is there any prove that karma does exist ? or is it we just believe it with our faith, same like other religions ?

Well whether or not it exists is up to each of us individually really I mean thats like asking "is there any proof that god/satan/heaven/hell exists" ya know...I have personally seen Karma in action in the lives of others andin my own life actually...and I am a firm believer because of that, that what you put out into the world be it actions or thoughts is what you will get back...

no in this era ie " kalyug" we get results acc to our deeds done physically but not not due to -ve thoughts in our mind but these -ve thoughts inspire us to do sins physically

This is the same concept held by Hindus. Read my discussion on Law of karma.

Yeah, somehow cause-effect theory is proven right in every aspect of our life. I believe in this theory and for more logical explanation is better than just a believe.

I dont believe in sin either and that would be from my Buddhist beliefs without a doubt...Karma is a factor but also being that in order to put love on all levels out into the world you have to be loving internally and niether of those are possible when you live negitively if that makes sense...Another thing to realize is that Sin is feared because of the supposed price one would pay (hell or the equivilant of depending on the religion) but in my personal Buddhist beliefs there is no hell to fear but again, there is karma...
