    Killings... Empty Killings...

    Post  Admin on Sat Dec 15, 2012 12:47 pm

    I named this thread "Killings" as not to focus on only the recent Connecticut shooting.

    First, I should perhaps say that we are not really human beings. Let me explain; we're currently being human beings and everything else, but we're not actually human...and on the other hand we are human currently. We're understanding being human...does that make sense?

    Anyway...many of us die every day, some in miscarriages and ectopic pregnancies (if there were a god, it would be the most prolific abortionist around). Babies and children also die from disease and mutation and acts of horror each day.

    What frustrates me a bit is when people suggest that the reason for such events as the shooting is that god isn't taught in schools...or that this is a result of sin and so forth and so on. When in fact it has nothing to do with either of those, and it's ridiculous to suggest such as a resolution. People have in fact killed in the name of deities...and the suggestion that what someone did thousands of years ago (the Earth being only a few thousand years old) results in the death of children at an elementary school. Yes, this has been suggested, believe it or not.

    In regard to the shooter and whether he will be punished? No...there's no punishment following death. However, we do remember that we're each and everything...and it is therefore not pleasant to be such a human following our death. He will have to help himself through his victims. His victims will most likely help him with the process of remembering (geez...I wish there was a better way to put it).
    If we want people punished, we have to do it here as death is not a's a transference of information.

    I wish that we as nders had a trauma group established in which we could talk to people that have been affected by such heart goes out to parents as I can't imagine anything worse than losing a child. A child isn't only linked to our genetics and therefore we have to make sure they survive (as evolutionists and biologists claim). We are the same in regard to our own biological as we are to those we adopt.

    A child is our specie's matter the parent. They are essential to our survival as a species and to the evolution of an intelligence. One loss veers us in another direction as does a gain.

    Each human life that becomes realized is amazing...but is also subject to probabilities, and within those probabilities (although actually slight) are possibilities toward horror to which we must search for the answers. They are amongst our challenges...and in order to protect ourselves from such horrors we must counter the detriment and resolve it here.

    Here's what Morgan Freeman had to say about the killings (it's been making the rounds around facebook.:

    "You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here's why.

    It's because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single *victim* of Columbine? Disturbed people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.

    CNN's article says that if the body count "holds up", this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer's face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer's identity? None that I've seen yet. Because they don't sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you've just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.

    You can help by forgetting you ever read this man's name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem. You can help by turning off the news."

    Btw...apparently Morgan Freeman is an atheist. He is quoted as saying "God is an imaginary friend, for adults."


    And absent when it comes to children. (that one is from me)
