why are you so quick to judge. This family was surly traumatized and they should hire a lawyer and sue the spirit out of this stupid airline.

For me, first and foremost things need to make sense rationally. I guess I am attracted to this religion from a different perspective. I certainly get why it's comforting. I'm not allergic to other opinions, like I said above to each their own.

How is my perspective not Rational?

Either nothing is hashgacha pratis, everything is, or something in the middle. CMIIW but no source earlier than the bal shem tov holds such an extreme position as "everything". To each their own, but it's totally counter intuitive to me and doesn't sit well with me at all.

I never really known that there are opinions that disagree with the Ba'al Shemtov on this. Thank you for teaching me something. To me the Ba'al Shemtov's shita is the only intuitive notion and without it... well, lets just say its the only way I can perceive Judaism and reality.

It is much more comforting (intuitive) to say the Holocaust happened by Hashgacha Protis, than without it. (As precedent, I would also point out how Hashem explicitly planned Galus Mizraim in the text)

Of course it is, and Hashem for reasons known only to Him guided the course of events so that those who perished in the holocaust did, and as a result those who were born and are here today exist, but if you could go back in time that would mean Hashem is giving you the ability to prevent the Holocaust which would also be considered within His hashgacha pratis. So then the question becomes are you דוחה נפש מפני נפש which is generally not allowed,  or is this situation different since the lives of the millions of people alive today are directly an outgrowth of the deaths of the victims of the holocaust? Assuming you are therefore halachicly  free to choose either, which would you choose?

I find it belittling and inappropriate to apply Halacha to a si-fi scenario which could never be (not to mention we are talking about one of the most complicated halachic concepts which have such in-depth nuances that change the halacha). It goes without saying, and against every instinct of every normal person, that if you hypothetically meet a "hitler" yimach shmo v'zichro you kill him. Altering the future is not part of that discussion because the future hasnt happened by definition.

Not quite. A new car is owned by the dealership they sell it to the bank and when ur lease is up the bank takes back the car and they sell it so if they cant sell it fast enough or for enough profit they will raise the leasing prices not to lose money

How do banks get rid of the old inventory?

Would you go back in time and kill Hitler as a child? It would save millions of lives of those who perished in the holocaust, but would simultaneously eliminate millions of people alive today whose parents would never have met, likely including you. Of course if you donít exist you could never have travelled back in time to kill Hitler....

Everything is Hashgacha pratis (divine providence) even the most horrific pasts of our ancestors.

Yes. Can you please send me one as well?

Thanks

I got the dream cloud. It is really nice but very different from conventional coil mattresses . I like how tall it is and it is firm and plush all at the same time.

If your looking to hold it long term I dont see how it is even a question. Are you suggesting it might be better to lease with intent to buy after for a cheaper total price (cuz I find that hard to believe)?
