I'm a self taught programmer whose taken a break to go back to school and study Software Engineering.

וישמע משה ויפל על-פניו -- And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face.

The truth of a fact can only be proved by a fact, not by reasons or reasoning. Reasons and reasoning can establish its probability or its necessity but can never prove its actuality. The veracity of a messenger can only be proved by his sender, the sending of Moses only by God himself. That is why no word of an answer from Moses himself could refute the accusation of Korach. If God would not consider it right to confirm the veracity of his being commissioned by God, in face of this denial of it, then his mission was at its end -- ויפל על פניו.

Rav Samson Raphael Hirsch, Parshat Korach

I wish I had God's PGP Key.
