From a site called “The Web Yeshiva Blog”:
Let me ask you a simple question – how easy do you think it is to have a universe that has creatures like us. That is, a universe that contains self-aware, thinking, emotional creatures like ourselves. It seems not so easy. To create a universe with a creature like man you need numerous essential physical elements and laws precisely crafted and calibrated in order to have a working, functioning universe with conscious, sentient beings. Not only do you need obvious elements like matter and energy, but you need laws to govern that matter and energy (like the laws of gravity and the strong and weak nuclear laws). What’s more, those laws have have just the right amount of force or energy to do their job properly. Sometimes, there’s a very narrow margin of error in the midst of a rather large number of possible configurations for the elements and laws of the universe.
This is what is known as the Fine Tuned Universe – i.e., a universe which seems to have been precisely crafted and organized in order to enable creatures like man to both exist and gain some level of understanding of the world which he lives.
The answer to that opening question is: it is the easiest thing in the world. You only need to open your eyes, look around, and live your life.
But then he brings up the notion of “creating” and/or “fine tuning” the universe, which is naturally quite impossible.
In order to create the universe, you would have to start with nothing — and you cannot get there. In order to tune the universe, you would need to be able to violate the law of identity/causality — that is, to make reality be not really real after all.

The Obama administration is the most transparently dishonest administration in history.
January 23rd, 2013
Obama made a speech in which he remarked about “commitments to justice, like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security,…”
Of course, he’s got it backwards — since in fact Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security are commitments to injustice: to taking from earners for the unearned benefits of others.

Obama’s re-election was certainly a dark day for America. He’s a terrible person and a rotten President.
The big question is: why did the Republican’s hand him the election by nominating Romney and failing to attack Obama on his record — which is all bad?
If Obama now decrees that “All patriotic Americans should hand over their guns to the authorities,” how many people will meekly follow orders?
If Obama now decrees that “All patriotic Americans should accept and comply with Obamacare,” how many people will meekly obey?
If Obama decrees “Higher taxes for all,” how many people will selflessly submit?

Britain may be under the delusion that they saved themselves from the Nazis back in World War Two. But it looks like the Nazis simply moved on to take over Britain under the new name: the “National Health Service” (where “the little Mengeles of the NHS” like to kill people through starvation, dehydration, etc.).

Nobody in the history of the world has ever seen the kind of debt our government has been piling on us. When people come to see the astronomical size of the burden, might it be something like what happened when the people who had never seen the stars in the night sky were suddenly confronted with the astronomical spectacle in Nightfall?

Obama’s intense hatred of America and freedom should, by rights, make it impossible for him to be re-elected. But since the Republicans are loath to stand up for America, our rights and freedom do not have any political defenders. So the question is: how far could Obama’s destruction go in a second term? It couldn’t be the end, could it?

It looks like the Republicans want to have their cake and eat it, too. First, Ann Romney talked about “love,” the Chris Christie said we want respect rather than love. Which is it going to be?
Since Obama both hates and disrespects America, you would think we’d be okay either way. For rational love and respect for America, we need Obama out of the While House.

Bringing Ayn Rand into the Presidential campaign was a stroke of genius.
