|I know nothing about Karl Pierson, the Arapahoe High School shooter.....|
That said, I am going to go out on a limb and make a prediction. I predict that if he did leave behind writings, those writings will indicate that he was a committed Darwinist. I will predict further that in those writings he will muse about the ethical implications of atheistic materialism and/or Darwinism.
What a slimeball.
Apparently he had the Latin phrase "Alea iacta est" written on his arm. That bastard Darwin got to the Romans too..
A fitting conjunction between the coin-toss and the Pierson threads. Now what I want to know is which of the UDers think Pierson became a murderer by chance and which think by design eg god's will aka god's mysterious plan (its plan both for the dead victims and for the surviving onlookers)
What I really want to know is how they reconcile thinking it was all part of god's plan with reviling Pierson -- if it were actually god's plan, then Pierson was its chosen agent They should thank Pierson for lending his body as a tool to carry out god's plan. Hell, without Pierson, god might have had to pick one of the UDers at random to suddenly travel to Colorado and start murdering. Else how was god going to arrange for one person to be killed, one critically injured, multiple witnesses traumatized ... that kind of thing doesn't just happen by chance, you know!
But no, of course, it was neither chance nor god behind Pierson's actions. It was "Darwinism". Yep, religion poisons everything. It even poisons their reasonable sadness about this recurring nightmare of teenage shooters in the US.
Thanks, Barry, for being your usual poisonous self!
