365 to one

I added a post today entitled GOD and Modern Warfare, little did I know the relevance it had on this specific date I chose to post it. This wasn’t intentional at all but I realised the coincidence looking further into the topic.

In the optimistic mood I’m in I’d like to think you would have a wee glance at the post, but to summarise, it states that a religious upbringing is more damaging than violence in the movies we watch and the video games we play. It’s a post I’ve had in the pipeline for a while. 

In it I make a small reference to the Columbine Shooting in 1999, not aware that it was on this exact date, 16 years ago.

I live in the UK. It hasn’t been reported on the media today, especially with the upcoming elections. I’m not sure how much coverage the anniversary gets over in the States, but thoughts go out regardless.

Have you ever talked about an occasion, later realising that it occurred on that exact day of the year? Or brought up in conversation a certain band, who happen to be touring in your town that evening?

Sometimes the date you choose to talk on a subject couldn’t be more relevant.

  1. You write, “In the optimistic mood I’m in I’d like to think you would have a wee glance at the post, but to summarise, it states that a religious upbringing is more damaging than violence in the movies we watch and the video games we play (With a study confirming so).”

    I may have missed it, but I don’t see any study cited in your post which finds that “a religious upbringing is more damaging than violence in the movies we watch and the video games we play”.

    • Oh darn you’re right, I’ll amend the post. I wrongly suggested that. The study doesn’t conclude religion is more damaging, it shows that media violence hasn’t contributed to an increase in violent crime. I conclude religion is more damaging.
      Thank you for the correction.
