Don't You Just Love It!

I watched a documentary on how Paul Dirac proved how something comes from nothing and then how the Big Bang's ultimate creation of difference is all due to the vacuum fluctuations affecting the initial explosion. Then I happened to be reading about the Lamed Wufniks, the 36 Righteous people of Jewish mythology, whose existence proves to God that Humanity is worth keeping. If they learn of their own purpose, they'll immediately die and someone else will take their place; but that's unlikely because they're too humble to ever believe they could be one of the Righteous in the first place. At the end of the day, which is crazier! Science and religion. Wonderful stuff!
