The Yitzhak Luria Heresy Experiment: An Update

Hey, ho. Regular readers of Irregular Times will know that eleven days ago, I questioned the veracity of claims that those who use the semi-divine name of Yitzhak Luria for profit will receive punishment from the heavens. Questioned, nothing; I offered myself up as a test case, opening up a shop selling items with the name of Yitzhak Luria on it, then declaring that I intended to make a profit from selling those items.

So I’ve satisfied the conditions, and I’ve been waiting for retribution.. and waiting, and waiting. No punishment from the heavens so far. I’m healthy, my daughter came through a previously planned operation with flying colors, better than expected, my son is fending off multiple “girlfriends” in his middle school, my wife has safely come back from a long-distance trip. Heck, even the small things are going swimmingly: I got a great haircut this morning.

So what’s the deal? Where’s the punishment from the heavens I’m supposed to be receiving? Hmmm. Stay tuned, friends and neighbors. And if you’re hanging out with me, scan the skies for meteorites; I may not be out of danger yet!

    Now, Jim, I can borrow some of what I’ve heard the more virulent xian logic: my grandsons and I were sprayed by the skunk to punish you for this. I’ve actually heard that kind of logic.

    But see, you’ve lost the most important thing of all: Faith and respect for Yitzhak Luria. You can’t mock him and revere him as a guru at the same time. And if your heart isn’t open to his wonderful teachings, isn’t that the greatest misfortune of all?
