When awful things like the recent mass killings occur, it is natural to attempt to make sense of how these things could happen, and what could have led these individuals to do such horrible things. While each individual situation is different, our desire to identify cause and hopefully prevent future episodes is on our minds;
With that in mind, a church friend listed what he thought was responsible for the Uvalde school shooting, with most of the usual suspects, but high on the list he put “evolution” and the under it the hopelessness and despair it causes by making life meaningless.

I realize there is no one cause, but like scientific theories, suspect there may be some Occum’s razor type factors involved
