It's common knowledge that atheists generally place science as the pinnicale of human studies. Does this warrant suspecting Holmes is an atheist. The problem is that those who go into this field do so without a well rounded education. They lack understanding of the other disciplines of knowledge. Hence many scientists become materialists and atheists.
2)He was a Phd candidate in Neuro-science.
An interest in the mind coupled with the materialist bent calls into question free-will and truth. Many who deal with this issues through the atheist paradigm come to unsettling conclusions.
This fact doesn't mean James Holmes was an atheist, but it suggests he struggled with this question, "what is the real meaning of life?" If there is no God...is it all CHAOS?
*He called himself the "Joker" upon his arrest.
This is the point that compels me to think he is an atheist.
I have argued many times before that the "Joker" seen in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" is someone who takes atheism to it's logical conclusion.
Click the links to see the arguments for this point, which I made some time ago:
I know the militant atheists like Bob and Pasta will try to change the subject and whine that I want to round up all atheists and place them in camps and claim I'm a Facist.
I'm not and I don't. People must have the freedom to believe what they believe.
However, that freedom doesn't mean their beliefs are free from scrutiny and criticism. The evils of their belief and how those beliefs adversely affect the person and society must be considered in order to help others see atheism is not a rational position, it is the least rational belief a person can hold.
I am convinced atheism is indeed an evil and that its logical outworking is deterimental to the individual and society. History has shown us time and time again that when atheists come into power, they are the most dangerous of people.
Just look at the atheists on this forum, consider how many of them attack theists and try to hurt people emotionally for what they believe.
I believe James Holmes is just one more example of someone seduced by the materialist rheotoric of atheism. He used his intelligence to consider what atheism really means, he looked into the abyss--that is atheism--and went mad, and like the Joker wanted everyone to look into the abyss with him.
That is no Joke.
I'm interested to see how this unfolds. Am I right about Holmes?
We shall see.
