    Look, there has been mass shootings and terrorists attacks on and off for so long in this country. So why people are complaining and whining about such irks me in all kinds of ways. Don't you know there are still people sick suffering and dying in the hospitals and on the streets and in other parts of the world? What makes these people different then the others? Why worry about something you had no control over?, why not use your freedom and help those you can help and have control over. What can donald Trump do? All Donald Trump can do is be Donald Trump. It's no use worrying about something we have no control over. While I am very sorry people have got killed and hurt, I know also the Bible says we are not to put our faith in man , but God only. So Donald Trump may be leading the country now but don't expect any miracles and don't expect the man to not fall in error because the bible says to put our faith in God only, Donald Trump is an imperfect human being who was born a sinner just like all of us. And on this earth no man should be fully trusted. It ain't nobody on this Earth perfect and doesn't make mistakes. I believe we are all capable of falling into error. It would just be better to just pray to God, (the only one who can do the possible) about it instead of complaining about such cause it's irritating and it bothers me. A beautiful man died on the cross 2000 years ago yet no one talks about that and how he suffered for us and lost his life. The only thing events shows us like this is that life is short and because it is short we should be trying to return our hearts and souls to God and seeking him. Besides, the bible says we are all destined to die and people die everyday, get over it please :-/

    Because no one in good health expects to meet their Maker by going to Walmart. They expect to return home with purchases not a casket.

    The sick and dying aren’t trying to take others with them. It’s the gravity of recklessness and disregard for human life that shocks.

    My bad day and discontent shouldn’t result in body bags. It’s unstable, unnatural, and wholly demonic.

    Show me where he mentions God. Does he have any quotes about God? Who is he? A scientist? I don't know him.

    But why is it a shock? Hasn't this been happening over the years?

    I'm sorry I don't know what an astrophysicists is, I don't even know him or what he does, I just remember seeing him on some Katy perry YouTube show. Other then that I don't know him.

    I bet he hated that.

    As a scientist he deals in hard numbers, not how people feel about anything.

    It didn't seem like it. Are you a fan? You seem like a fan. I don't know what scientists do but what do you mean hard in numbers?

    And sometimes people do meet thier maker at Walmart..lol what about the person falling over a shelf for trying to reach over for an item or someone getting hit pushing a cart. Or how about someone getting food poisioned or sick for eating such things there having them to remove them things off the shelf later...

    I am kind of a fan. His tweet got him in trouble. He said this:

    In the past 48hrs, the USA horrifically lost 34 people to mass shootings. On average, across any 48hrs, we also lose…

    500 to Medical errors
    300 to the Flu
    250 to Suicide
    200 to Car Accidents
    40 to Homicide via Handgun

    Often our emotions respond more to spectacle than to data.​

    If a gunman walked into your church and started shooting would you reason it happens all the time or is it fair to say you don’t expect to be wounded or killed at a place of worship?

    Just because something happens doesn’t mean you expect it to happen to you. These are grievous acts committed by deeply troubled people. It wasn’t enough to harm themselves. They derive pleasure from hurting innocent strangers too. Its sick.

    Why are you disturbed by expressions of sorrow or empathy? You’re asking the wrong question in my opinion.

    Irks
    Irritating
    Bothers you
    Get over it

    The hardness in your heart is glaring. It’s a pity you don’t see it.

    Sounds like he was reading over statistics. What does numbers have to do with anything anyway, even one person dying over error is crucial...

    And what about Jesus? Why is thier hardly any concern sorrow and empathy for him in this world? Besides expressing concern and sorrow about such wont make any of us righteous in any aspect. Girl, there has been shooting in churches before, so anyone with common sense would take precaution and lock thier church doors considering and knowing it has happened before and knowing we are now in bad times, and they aren't grevious acts they are the signs of the times Jesus talked about..look around sista..it's going to get worst and you know why it will get worst, cause we are in those times where it's leading for Jesus' return and the end... Remember Jesus said nations will rise against nations and that people would turn on one another, I know you read that in your bible child

    Yes he deals in statistics. That is what he knows and works with all the time.

    His point was the deaths from shootings was a lot smaller than from other sources.

    I agree, but there is continual wanton murder in Chicago, for instance, that no one makes a "peep" about, even as it continues.

    Probably because they all work together and is the same class...
