Uncommon Descent Serving The Intelligent Design Community



I know nothing about Karl Pierson, the Arapahoe High School shooter, other than the brief sketches I have seen in the paper the last few days.  I have neither read nor heard about his writings (other than the Latin tag he wrote on his arm).  In fact, I do not know if any such writings exist, but I suspect they do.  It seems that people like Pierson always want other people, at least the ones they don’t kill, to have the benefit of their erudition.

That said, I am going to go out on a limb and make a prediction.  I predict that if he did leave behind writings, those writings will indicate that he was a committed Darwinist.  I will predict further that in those writings he will muse about the ethical implications of atheistic materialism and/or Darwinism.

I could be very wrong.  It might turn out that he was a fundamentalist young earth creationist, and if that is the case our Darwinist friends will have a field day.  But that would surprise me very much indeed.
