Bob answers, "All of them." Of course. With zero U.S. military fatalities in Afghanistan in the last year compared to over 350 annually in training exercises, calculating by rounding up to the nearest positive integer, we could have protected innocent women and children there, and men, until the year 2371 before we reached a single year's training toll. Bob also discusses the Brown University study of infant mental health that compared those born during the lockdown to the results of tests for those born previously. The results are horrifying and consistent with our kgov.com/95-theses and our kgov.com/25 List of 25 Ways the Shutdown Kills People, and otherwise harms them. Such acuity testing goes back a century and by about 1930 standardized infant IQ tests were developed at Yale and Berkeley. Now, The Guardian reports, "Children born during the coronavirus pandemic have significantly reduced verbal, motor and overall cognitive performance compared with children born before, a US study suggests. The first few years of a child’s life are critical to their cognitive development. ...pandemic-era children appear to have scored shockingly low on tests designed to assess cognitive development, said lead study author Sean Deoni, associate professor of paediatrics (research) at Brown University. In the decade preceding the pandemic, the mean IQ score on standardized tests for children aged between three months and three years of age hovered around 100, but for children born during the pandemic that number tumbled to 78… Said Deoni. "You don’t typically see things like that, outside of major cognitive disorders." The study included 672 children from the state of Rhode Island. Of these, 188 were born after July 2020 and 308 were born prior to January 2019, while 176 were born between January 2019 and March 2020. The children included in the study were born full-term, had no developmental disabilities and were mostly white. Those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds fared worse in the tests, the researchers found. The study points to other factors, but KGOV predicts that pregnant moms wearing masks at work, shopping, etc., caused long-term harm to their children. Starbucks, etc., obviously, didn't have the foresight to take care to not oxygen-deprive the babies of their pregnant workers.
Today's resource: God and the Death Penalty:
- Jesus advocated the death penalty
- Paul, in court, endorsed execution
- The New Testament supports killing criminals "without mercy"
In the New Testament God directs the government to strike the criminal with terror, wrath and vengeance without mercy. Watch in amazement as you see that Jesus commanded the death penalty! And the Apostle Paul said he did not object to capital punishment. Then see other Bible characters directly affirm the death penalty!
The writings of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Paul in the Gospels, Acts, Romans and Revelation defend execution as does the author of Hebrews. Crime thrives because the criminal's "sentence... is not executed speedily" says the Bible. Learn the history of execution and why God first utterly forbade, and then strictly commanded, execution. In this video, find out why the Bible begins and ends with capital punishment issues and why God put the death penalty at the heart of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
