Ubiquitin is right on the ball!
It is much easier for someone with as little knowledge as stam a deya to keep periodically posting these little “but…” snippets than for ubiquitin and others to answer them, because they’re based on guesses and assumed facts with an underlying current of conspiracy theories, POSING as logical answers for facts and obvious logic!
stam represents the perfect example of how the anti-vaccine movement is fooling people…

1.Ok, resort to name calling, that will get us very far! It’s not about profit versus profit it is about how the whole anti-vaccine side is funded by injury lawyers.
3. no it doesn’t! you are the only uninformed one that continues to spout ignorance despite some pretty solid ta’anos against you!

1. The anti-vaccine studies are all backed and funded by injury lawyers.
2.no one got angry. it’s your way of portraying your opposition as emotion based…
3.you are causing innocent readers to possibly endanger themselves and their children based on your ignorance and feigned knowledge.
4.apparantly you are ignoring or didn’t understand the last comment I made on the previous post… just because you are a health nut that doesn’t connect the facts of vaccine research to anything to do with healthy eating, or nutrition.March 24, 2015 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm in reply to: Things Causing Autism (can only be a) Joke #1082586
Stam- you sound like the type who read 10 pages of the pro-vaccine book then got burnt out because you won’t have it any way besides your own.
It is very “below the belt” to say calm down, keep your cool to those debating you, especially through the computer, it is more of a cheap political type move to push through your own opinion.
It is very risky to allow these “feelings” of yours to be expressed in a public forum when you don’t really seem to understand the danger you are posing to pro-vacciners if your “feelings” are wrong.
If you even bring up the name Barbara Joe Fisher as your proof then you really don’t seem to have made it past page ten!
All of your answers imply that you didn’t once consider that which the previous people wrote you are so bent on your “feelings”.
This has nothing to do with eating healthy and nutrition this is an independent question about the effects of the vaccines and health minded people are no more informed then any one else in this matter!
OWL- you should read this previously mentioned book too and you would realize how stupid you sound linking a genetic disease with something given after birth, ridiculous!!March 23, 2015 10:24 pm at 10:24 pm in reply to: Things Causing Autism (can only be a) Joke #1082564
stam a deya –
People like you are scaring people like my father-in-law to drive me and my brother-in-law crazy about vaccines without really having the faintest clue what Is right and what is wrong. I’ve heard from more than one very informed doctor how neccesarry vaccines are including the doctor who I visited with my baby today who is frum, a real, caring tzaddik of a person who knows his stuff. My doctor, also a frum tzaddik of a person and well informed, actually went through the effort of driving a book over to my house which he said he bought a bunch of copies of for the exact purpose of giving to people with “shvere shveres” like mine by paul offvit clearly and convincingly anti anti-vacine. If all you can conjure in your responses is “what if what if what if” than you are better off not posting at all than posting ignorant scare messages. Just read the book by paul offvit against the anti-vaccine movement and you will clearly see at the very least how there is little you can really claim without a tremendous amount of insider research, (besides the fact that he has me convinced the exact opposite of your opinion).

DON’T LEAVE E.Y.!!!….October 21, 2014 8:19 pm at 8:19 pm in reply to: dvar torah on parshas noach for wedding anniversary #1036476
I actually spoke at my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary Parshas Noach! The following is the dvar torah that I said.
By the way it also answers SCARED DRIVER DELIGHT’S Question…
(B’rishus my grandparents) – When I was asked to present a dvar torah for this special occasion, I asked myself, “what is the reason we “tie” words of Torah into a speech?” I want to suggest a possible reason. What gives someone like me a right to get up and speak at an event commemorating 50 years of marriage? I haven’t been married for 50 years; I haven’t been married even one year! Torah is something that relates to all people, and it brings the proper perspective of all occasions in life into focus. Therefore I feel that if I can present what the Torah says about marriage, then I have what to say at this event.
As I was going through Parshas Noach, I noticed that the Torah goes out of its way to include certain people when listing those who may enter the teiva. In perek 6; pasuk 18: “I will uphold my covenant with you, and you shall come to the teiva, you and your children, your wife and the wives of your children with you.” In perek 7; pasuk 7: “And Noach came, and his sons and his wife and the wives of his sons with him, to the teiva, etc.” And again in perek 7; posuk 13: “On that day Noach came, and Shem, Cham, and Yafes the sons of Noach, and the wife of Noach, and the wives of his sons, with him to the teiva.” Why does the Torah feel it necessary to go through the entire list of Noach’s family again and again? Why not condense it to “Noach and his family?”
The truth is that the pasuk itself is difficult to understand. The commentators ask, “If only Noach was a tzaddik, why then was the rest of his family saved?” The answer given is that in his merit they were saved. But one can still ask, “If Hashem was destroying the world why did he deem it necessary to keep the rest of Noach’s family?” Wouldn’t it have been better to have a fresh start with just Noach and not to bring along the pre-flood influences of his wife, children, and children’s wives? Hashem could have created a new family for Noach?
Perhaps these questions can be answered with the following: The gemara in Sotah (2a) states that a person recives their spouse based upon their actions. The gemara continues that paring them up is as difficult as the splitting of the Yam Suf. Asks the gemara: it is stated that 40 days before conception a heavenly voice calls out who will marry whom? Rashi explains that before a person is born his entire lot is decided with the exception of whether he will be a tzaddik or a rasha. If so what is the intention of the gemara’s statement, “only based on his actions?” The gemara answers that 40 days before conception, a person’s primary spouse is announced, but if they don’t merit their primary spouse, a secondary one is given based upon their actions. Rashi explains that the reason this is difficult like the splitting of the Yam Suf, is because it wasn’t this persons’ intended match.
I want to suggest that one can infer from this gemara that there is a tremendous power and ‘magic’ in a marriage. The gemara is implying that replacing ones’ intended spouse is comparable to the splitting of the Yam Suf. Perhaps the reason for this is that there is something so perfect and so ‘magical’ about a person’s original marriage partner, that replacing them necessitates a miracle no less impressive than the splitting of the Yam Suf.
The question is asked: “There is no way that all the animals could fit in the teiva, so why did Hashem have Noach build the teiva so big?” The answers given are in order for the people to see and do teshuva, and because Hashem tries to minimize miracles.
Perhaps this is the reason that Hashem spared the wife of Noach and the wives of his children despite their own lack of merit. There was something so perfect, so miraculous about their first marriages, that to replace them would have made necessary a great miracle, a miracle so great that in order to minimize the miracle Hashem kept Noach’s wife and children with their wives alive, despite the possible negative influences they might have on the new society!
In every marriage there lies a great miracle. However, Hashem hides this miracle behind nature, causing some people not to properly recognize it. This may be for the two reasons mentioned before: 1)To minimize the miracle 2) So everyone should be able to relate to the marriage, and to learn from it how to grow in their own lives.
I believe this is something that is represented in my grandparents’ marriage. The celebration of the anniversary is both in honor of the ‘magic’ of such a wonderful couple and in recognition of all that we learn from them as they continue to teach and inspire.
This is a celebration of the 50th anniversary. The mishna in Avos brings the different stages for different years in a persons life. This can also be applied to the years of marriage – as the couple brings up children through these same stages. “50,” says the mishna, “Is the age of advice,” – and 50 years of marriage is the age of advising on the way to live a proper marriage.
I have been very lucky, on a personal level, to experience my grandparents’ guidance and advice when I speak to them every week. Their caring love and support are an example for everyone.
My bracha is that they should continue to be an inspiration for many years to come, and see nachas from all their talmidim until the coming of Mashiach.October 20, 2014 6:56 am at 6:56 am in reply to: where can I get a husband? #1036362
