Anyone care to make an assessment on the underlying cause of events like Aurora / Columbine / Virginia Tech being related to the biblical accounts of demon possession? Is it plausible in today's world? I doubt "possession" could be medically/scientifically determined or diagnosed but it sure seems to create an answer to the question of Why?

Thoughts?

There is no such thing as a deamon, or being possessed by one.

Bottom line, the perpetrator is 100% culpable. Why does not matter in how he should be punished. He has demonstrated that, for whatever reason, he does not have the mental circuit breakers to allow him to work and play well with others. He should never experience another moment as a free man.

In this case, "the devil made me do it" should be grounds for burning at the stake. I'll bring the marshmallows. http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/138/0/9/_marshmallow__by_Crawldragon.gif

In many cases ther are more "earthly" explanations and we can see chemical imbalances, trauma, etc, being directly linked. We do not need a theological explanation, the ones we have are pretty good.

No more a sign of the devil than seeing the face of Jesus on a tortilla is proof of divinity

Not sure if exactly Bible based, but a very well indoctrinated person told me once that the definitions of good/evil were the presence/absence of God, respectively.

I am seeing a lot of paralells to the movie "Rampage" however. Unlike the character in that moview who started off by blowing up the police station, he tried a similar technique by booby trapping his apartment and trying to set an explosive trap for his erstwhile neighbors to divert law enforcement in that direction.

This was a carefully thought out, methodical, and deliberate plan on this guy's part.

Kill the man, kill the devil.

Domons are thoughts. A lot of people are ruled by their thoughts. Religious people have religious demons.

If we did everything that came into our minds, the world would be kaos. We learn how to analyse our thoughts and kick the domons out that need kicking out. When you entertain the demons, action results. So yes, the pos did what his demons proposed.

I even wondered (briefly) whether the guy the cops found was set up by the shooter.

Almost always shooters are high on something. Often prescribed as mood-altering drugs lead to paranoia and suicidal thoughts after prolong use.

Serial killers though…. Most of them are likely possessed. Just about all of them say that something forced them to kill.

Mental illness is far more likely.
But that doesn't show that demonic posession is NEVER the cause.

Just like conspiracies. When a conspiracy theory is postulated, it's far less likely than one, or a handful, of nutjobs acted on their own. But that doesn't prove that conspiracies never happen.

It is a very long story but basically I have seen it.

Sounds totally crazy but because I was meddling in some occultist stuff when I was young I have seen few demons over the years. Time to time I see things others do not.

Now. Before you tell me that I am crazy and need proper help pick up your Bible and read all about people talking to demons, Jesus going on the tour of the world with Satan himself. Even spirit is mentioned in Saul case.

Things I could tell you would boggle your mind but you will not believe any of them. You live in different state of reality.

Some its hard to tell where the crazy stops and the lazy begins, as they use it for an excuse to get away with stuff.

Sometimes you can't tell if they're really hypochondriacs, or if they're faking it... :whistling:

Seriously though. If you've ever witnessed someone suffering from mental issues who were once "normal", its a very scary thing. Makes you wonder how much does it take to strip that grasp of reality from you. And how suddenly they can come back with the right meds.

Makes you really wonder just how tenuous the grip on reality really is if some chemical imbalances can send you into fantasy land just like that.

Most either get medicated, or wander around with a half beard, backpack, and large knife muttering about Karl Sagan and the Russian Consulate.

If you were looking for a particular mental disorder, I think the operative word for this shooter would be sociopath.

I agree. It is frightening.

My neighbor when I was young was like this. She was a surgeon and very smart. Not sure what happened, but she lost it one day. They put her on meds and she was somewhat ok as long as she took them. One day her husband ran to the store to re-fill her prescription and found her dead when he came home. She took a butcher knife to her throat, and as an ER surgeon, she knew exactly how to cut to make it very messy.

Hey. It is your opinion. It no more valuable to me then opinion of a blind man on shape of an elephant he has never seen.

I believe what I know not from reading Bible but from what I have seen on my own. I did not come to God based on reading Bible or hearing preachers. I came to God when I saw absolute reality of evil and realized that since this is real then God must be real too. I realized that side I was on was not the one I wanted to belong to.

There is a whole world out there, which is as real as this one that you know absolutely nothing about and cannot see.

Sociopaths are usually intelligent, have no emotional connection, and tend to escalate in order to attempt to "feel something." I think that fits both these scenarios rather well.

Intelligence and empathy are two separate traits. Sociopaths lack empathy, and how good they are at being sociopaths depends on their intelligence.

Religion breeds fanatics.

Religous fanatics are direct threats to my life.

We agnostics are forced to put up with religious fanatics who want to kill us because we are "required" to "respect" your own, personal, irrational fetish of belief in supernatural beings you cannot prove exist.

Not to mention the time, wealth, and blood wasted, as well as the lives wasted, in pursuit of such fetishes.

Religion is not harmless.

Mankind needs to grow up, as a whole, and reject all organized religions as the superstitious fantasy that it was, is, and shall evermore be, Amen.

And therein lies the problem. Why bother to look for a real answer when you can just create one? I say the the mass murders are android soldiers sent here by the Japanese as a massive plot to eliminate the rifles behind every blade of grass and facilitate the coming invasion. Here's my evidence.

There are a lot of dumb people in prison with personality disorders. The dumb are usually easier to catch.

Agreed. But that is what prison is for. To separate those that cannot work and play well with the rest of us.

Sociopaths are usually intelligent, have no emotional connection, and tend to escalate in order to attempt to "feel something." I think that fits both these scenarios rather well.

It is a very long story but basically I have seen it.

Sounds totally crazy but because I was meddling in some occultist stuff when I was young I have seen few demons over the years. Time to time I see things others do not.

Now. Before you tell me that I am crazy and need proper help pick up your Bible and read all about people talking to demons, Jesus going on the tour of the world with Satan himself. Even spirit is mentioned in Saul case.

Things I could tell you would boggle your mind but you will not believe any of them. You live in different state of reality.

So you're not even going to try? I'm curious. Let's hear it!!

Changing the name, doesn't alter the condition. The DSM likes to correct itself every now and again to be more PC.

That's been the name since the sixties. Give me some criteria other than your opinion for differentiating between a schizophrenic and a sociopath. If you look hard enough I suspect you will find that sociopath is the pop psychology name for anti-social personality.

In the most recent case with the joker, I'd look the other way if anyone wanted to burn him at the stake. :whistling:

Does it really matter if a viscous deranged animal has rabies or a head injury that caused the derangement? It should still be put down.

How much is it worth? Feeding him for a couple of years?

What will probably happen, is that he will undergo evaluation for a year or so to decide he is a highly functional nutjob. He may or may not reach trial. I really question the value his personal input will give.

The system is what it is, and it will take a long time to get to the end of this situation.

Thius is one thing we agree on 100%.

Actually, my feeling has always been that people who commit a crime for a reason are less dangerous and than people who commit it because they are crazy. I'd support execution for insane murderers - not only doing it, but being a priority over executing people who killed for money or whatever.

It seems reasonable that insanity should be an aggravating factor, not a mitigating one. People that lack the circuit breaker in their mind to keep them from committing random acts of mass violence should be permanently removed from society.

I wonder however if his "problem" is fixable with the right medication, should he be killed? Certainly seperated from society, but why killed?

I guess I really don't support the death penalty, but not for the reasons you might suspect.

A meth-head dirtbag whom we had fought several times in the past decided to take his wife hostage and keep beating her while threatening to kill her. My team made entry to rescue her, and he shot one of my team mates in the head, and another in the leg, arm, and hand. Before retreating behing cover.

Some wanted the death penalty for this guy. I however think he would be getting off too easy. I think justice would be better served if he spent the rest of his life in the punishing heat, and bitter cold of Western Kansas turning big rocks into little rocks for 18 hours a day, 7 days a week, eating plain bologna sandwiches and drinking water.

But that is just me!

It costs more for a capital murder trial, and susequent appeals. About 8 times as much as life in prison.

So they say. If you saw what they mean by "subsequent appeals" you'd realize the irony of that. After 1-2 levels of direct appeal, it's Government-paid left-wing lawyers (who are not constitutionally required) filing any kind of frivolous BS (literally things they'd be suspended or disbarred for in other cases) lawsuit to delay execution. But for that, it would actually be much, much cheaper.

Then the same people who used every possible tactic to increase the cost, protest the high cost they created.:upeyes:

Hogwash, at least not in my State.

I spent 6 weeks between jury selection and sitting in the jury box before we found the defendant "Guilty". It wouldn't have mattered what the penalty was that was just the "guilt" phase. As per our system, we then spent 2 1/2 days in the "penalty phase" listening to testimony and 5 hours to decide on the death penalty. Didn't cost that much extra.

He got a review by the State Supreme Court who decided that his trial and our verdict were conducted and arrived at properly and he sits on "Death Row" today.

Unfortunately, our fuzzwad Governor will not let the death penalty by carried out so he sits with a, basically, expensive life sentence.
