Doesn’t it say volumes that some people think anyone who actually has information WAS blaming Darwin?
In those mass murders where Darwin has been blamed, the accused was actually invoking Darwin himself. See for example, the Columbine massacre, the Finnish school shooter, Jeffrey Dahmer’s crimes, and Anders Breivik’s widely unnoticed interest in Darwin.
They said it. That’s the reason Darwin was blamed. No one was making up what the accuseds said.
So why are some rushing already to exonerate Darwin … ? Do they believe that the accused in the Aurora case will in fact turn out to have channelled Darwin, as investigators unravel the tragedy?
That wouldn’t be unusual, as the record shows, but hardly necessary.
It matters when that is true because ideas have consequences.
