96. My Opinion: Cause of the Connecticut Shooting
To present my opinion of this shooting, as a scientist I say that God exists andhas no cause. Thus, I say that God is one, absolute, unchanging, infinite, perfect, and eternal. Then, I say that God's Intelligent Design reveals the best universe, which has many, different, and finite things. One of these things is a mind-body shooter, who killed himself after he murdered the children and teachers. I say that the minds of the shooter, the children and the teachers will return to God, where their minds will receive new bodies. At the same time, their dying bodies will decay completely. Now, let me show why the mind of the shooter's body caused the murder of the children and teachers.
At Mark 7:15-23, Jesus says, 'There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man. ....' Since the human mind and body are related functionally, we can conclude that body comes from God through parents and that mind comes from God through perceiving.
Since a perceiving mind can come from any other human, a shooter's perceiving mind can be defiled, for example, by evil thought, by adultery, by fornication, by murder, etc.
So, the mind of a shooter can be defiled from without, for example, by the statement of the Supreme Court to remove prayers in public schools; by the statement of Senator Rockefeller, who says that the Declaration of Independence (DOI) has no laws; or the statement of Congress, who says that U.S. citizens are absolutely free. To remove prayers and DOI laws and free humans absolutely opens the minds of shooters.
We must open the minds of people. But only to truths and morals. This means that religions must go beyond morality and come together with the sciences.
