    Starting from 1914-1976, how many people died due to war, famine and genocide ?

    Include Rwanda and if you want.

    You care to venture a guess ?
    I also love how atheists just assume every conflict before WW1 was always about religion. You know like every time Rome went to war it was for Jesus Christ.

    Re: School shooting in Maryville, Washington

    I do not think that a single issue is the cause but instead a multitude of things.

    I feel that we are often to easy on our children today. In past generations life was a lot harder for children from a very early age. They often saw death firsthand due to war and/or illness, they worked with their parents once they were old enough to walk, hunger was not uncommon, ect. Now children largely spend their time in safe clean environments without needing to work long hard jobs or starve. Their little minds seems to be occupied by how best to entertain themselves instead of how best to survive. As a result I feel many are mentally unprepared when something doesn't go according to how they wish it. When something in their life gets difficult they do not know how to cope and will lash out with a over reaction to solve the problem.

    Might as well because it wasn't there in the first place. Written by a socialist minister who wanted equality in there but of course the God fearing people of that time certainly didn't consider minorities or women equal and weren't about to accept it.

    Funny on this turning away from God thing causing school shootings. I guess we should be more like the middle eastern countries where "God" is revered and there is no violence.

The claim that we have somehow become more violent than our ancestors is patently false, that we've done so because we no longer are connected to a 'god' is absurd.
    I would agree we haven't become more violent, mankinds history is pretty pathetic. I think one of the things that is a dividing line between Left and Right is their view of human nature. The left in general believes mankind is inherently good while the right believes men are inherently evil and cannot be trusted.

    Anyone who talks about gun control here will be swept off their feet.

    Amazing!!!! And a white elephant in the room should just be ignored also and it will soon never have been there. Totally amazing.

    A story about another school shooting where innocent kids are wounded and die and we are all suppose to pretend we are the three monkey statues?

    Truly amazing!!!!!!!
    Look at you!

    Don't waste another tragedy for your anti gun tactics.

    Shame you can't get pictures of those dead kids to further your cause.

    Goshin I was just getting ready to post exactly what you just said, thanks for reading my mind. If you view life thru the lens of evolution and life ultimately has no meaning then why not massacre people? I mean after all we are just animals with no soul or purpose other then self gratification so eat, drink, and be merry and then kill. For tommrow we die and seeing theres no after life? No biggie.

    There were school shootings 40 years ago too. Crime rates are lower today than they were 40 years ago as well. So looks like all those things you listed are actually making the US safer..

    Relative Morality, outdated 10 Commandments, Abortion, and Evolution in Schools, and Atheism evidently has cut the violent crime rate by more than half.

    the anti gun clowns trying to pass a moronic intrusive "universal background check" will claim tis incident is why such a stupid law is needed (even though it has nothing to do with a kid committing first degree murder)
