A dear friend was senselessly shot on his way home from work last night. Prayers would greatly appreciated. He is survived by his DW and three children.
Awful. Sorry for your loss. Best wishes to you and the family.

He accomplished unbelievable things despite devastating disability, a trait to be admired.

But that aside, what are the criteria for mention in this thread? A man, created in the image of G-d (that he did not believe in IINM,) left this world for the eternal one.  Do his life and accomplishments not warrant acknowledgment?  Does his family not deserve our compassion?

He went to great lengths to justify the denial of G-dís existence, with unprovable theories about the universe before the Big Bang that themselves required faith...

It shouldn't take much to be mentioned in this thread. All you have to do is die

He was born into a society that accepts those unproven and unprovable theories as fact.  Many of our brethren with extensive Torah education are also starstruck by "scientific consensus."  Now he knows the truth.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

He was a human being and deserving of our compassion. But he made it onto this thread because he was famous, not because he was human, and (much of) what he was famous for is not good stuff. The fact that there are people in this forum who may look up to him (not for his overcoming struggle in life but for the agenda that he spent his life pushing) is precisely why I felt the need to speak up.

Hope this all makes sense.

You must be really enlightened. I am just so. so happy he his dead. He was a hater of israel- am yisrael and eretz yisroel. He should rot along with all the others.
