Jewish Words of Wisdom: Quotes from December

Quotes for the Week of 24 Kislev/December 13, 1998

"He Who illuminates the earth and those who dwell upon it, with compassion; and in His goodness renews daily, perpetually, the work of creation." (p 409 in The Complete Artscroll Siddur)

According to scientists, the atom itself should not exist, since the electrically similar protons repulsion of each other is stronger than the force of gravity so the nucleus of an atom should fly apart. Since it does not, the scientists theorize that there must be what they term "the strong force", a previously unknown force, keeping the protons and thus the atom together. My reply to that is "He Who illuminates the earth and those who dwell upon it, with compassion; and in His goodness renews daily, perpetually, the work of creation." (p 409 in "The Complete Artscroll Sidur"), or as it says in Talmud, Chagigah 12b "... renews every day the works of creation...". Thus it is HaShem Himself who provides the strong force, just as it is, in my belief, He who is the provider for the direction the universe went in its formation, as He commanded them "Let the earth bring forth..." (Alyza)
