Re: 17 Dead at Florida High School
One of the things I stated before is that the mindset here in America seems to be the ultimate culprit.

That’s what I have been thinking. There is something about some areas of America where people are a hairs breadth away from explosive violence. In counties where there are effectively no guns (like the UK) this ends up in fist fights, possibly a stabbing or two.

But when basically anyone can get a gun (which is a dramatic force multiplier) explosive rages and a mythology that one is a ‘responsible gun owner’ and one of the ‘good guys with a gun’ and that one is the hero of one own’s story may lead to shooting someone being acceptable behaviour.

After all when we are angry we know that we are right and it’s not until afterwards that we think ‘maybe I was out of line’ but by that time it’s too later and some is laying bleeding out.

But I’m an outsider looking in so it’s easy for me to make sweeping statements.

The above ontological example models the zero premise to BB theory. It does so by applying the relative uniformity assumption that the alleged zero event eventually ontologically progressed from the compressed alleged sub-microscopic chaos to bloom/expand into all of the present observable order, more than it models the Biblical record evidence for the existence of Jehovah, the maximal Biblical god designer.

The explain to them any scientific investigation that explains the existence of things qualifies as science and as an explanation

Does a query (thats a question Stile) that uses this physical reality, to look for an answer to its existence and properties become theoretical, considering its deductive conclusions are based against objective verifiable realities.
