Video of James Holmes when 18 years old speaking at a Science Camp

Here is an exclusive video obtained by ABC News which shows James Holmes at Miramar College in San Diego discussing “temporal illusions” to students at a science camp. “It’s an illusion that allows you to change the past,” Holmes said in the video. Although somewhat awkward, he is just like any other student giving a speech. Somewhat nervous, but honestly, he did better than I do when speaking to a group of people.

Holmes was introduced at the seminar with:

“His goals are to become a researcher and to make scientific discoveries. In personal life, he enjoys playing soccer and strategy games and his dream is to own a slurpee machine.”

The dream of the “slurpee machine” is just another typical piece of humor from a typical American young male student. What happened to this man? Some are saying mental illness. Personally, I think anyone who is capable of killing another human has some sort of mental illness to begin with. But mental illness when used as a reason for a crime such as this to declare that Holmes was mentally unstable and incapable of understanding what he was doing. I completely disagree with this. He knew exactly what he was doing and carried it out with almost military precision.

  1. I will go back and re-read your funnies after this.I 100% agree with your thoughts on this Horrible Crime. I need to say Thank You for keeping me up to date on this because as we all know the “news” is well the “news” I feel a need to try and understand this,for some reason. I know the how and where and when but the “why” is blank…(Hope that made sense) .

  2. We may never know why he did what he did unless he chooses to tell but even then how would anyone know it was the truth? he is undoubtedly very intelligent that’s all we know for sure… Maybe he was tired of society… you could hardly blame him if he was. How did a 6 year old get into see this film which was rated PG13 ? Questions for the cinema owner.. The mother is still alive and apparently doesn’t know her daughter is dead yet . The poor woman will have a terrible time getting over this..

  3. It’s just so very, very sad… Something went tragically wrong with this kid, and whatever theorizing I did, in my comment on one of your earlier posts on the Colorado massacre, I don’t pretend to actually know what really went so horribly wrong within James Holmes.
