In the shiur he mentioned quantum mechanics and the double slit experiment. Truly amazing stuff.. (You can see this video that explains the double slit experiment if interested:
)

This whole discussion is starting to remind me of when the Bible codes came out like 20 years ago.

Not at all. He mentioned this in passing, not attempting to prove anything. Just to show how utterly confusing the world is without Emuna/Torah.

What's this about? Who's behind it, and which issue specifically are they addressing?

I'm on Torah U'mesorah's list, and did not get anything...so it is not from them.  A fellow rebbi told me about it.

I decided not to.  I teach a younger grade.  IMO, the best (only?) way to impart emunah, is by being an example.  I need to be a mentsch.  Such l'maysadik emunah discussions do not come up in the younger grades.

I would have gone for the personal chizuk, but I am just 'wiped out'.

I noticed on the sign that I saw posted that you needed to call for 'a free entry pass'.  I wonder if they are trying to limit the asifa to mechancim.

A chaver of mine is going.  If noone reports back first, I'll post his TR. :-)

Lots of pics, no substance... So what was discussed?
From what I heard, mostly dvarim pshutim...bring mayslach from Tanach that show hashgacha pratis, emunah etc.

The Rabonim who originally signed the letter against this initiative, have now signed a letter of support. If was published in the Yated Neaman within the last few weeks. If someone still has a copy, please post.
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.
