I realized recently that the Chareid world HAS to adopt the attitude that anyone who questions the party line is part of a conspiracy to destroy religion in general and Yiddishkeit in particular. It’s the logical conclusion of their belief system:
1. Torah is obviously true – Avraham Avinu realized that Hashem runs the world while sitting by himself in a cave at three years old.
1a. Given that Torah/Yiddishkeit is obviously true, anyone who seriously questions any part of it must be trying to poke holes in it in order to justify his desire to disregard the mitzvos.
2. Huge chunks of modern science call traditional understandings of the Torah into question.
2a. It must be that the scientists are trying to poke holes in Yiddishkeit order to justify their desire to disregard the ratzon Hashem.
C. There is a huge conspiracy among the world’s scientists to actively discredit religion.
If you need more proof of the conspiracy, well, a huge percentage of scientists are atheists or deists. Obviously they’re trying to justify their beliefs by asking questions on Judaism. It CAN’T be the other way around, that their scientific knowledge and inquiries lead them to become atheists and deists, because, as stated in premise 1, it is so obvious that the Torah is true that even a three year old could figure it out on his own!
It follows that anyone who reconciles what we know about the how the world works and what traditional sources say in favor of the real world is part of the conspiracy and/or has been seduced by it.
