comment Is getting a blessing from a rabbi considered heresy?
Is this an answer? I don't think so.

Your question is still relevant to certain prayers, making it a dupe of the generic, "why do we pray" question.

Your question isn't really about blessings from rabbis so much as predetermination.

@Jake aside from what caseyr547 states (for which a proof would be nice), mightn't it matter that this is preparation in the event of a disaster, in which case one might want to preserve the supplements for when the iron-rich food runs out (or perhaps they are taken in addition to an iron-rich diet)?

@DoubleAA, so there are several closable reasons, including several possible dupes. I vote close unless and until the question is changed.

possible duplicate of What is the point of praying if your fate is already decided on Rosh Hashana?

Based on only the second sentence, it would seem that prayer is superfluous. Even with the last sentence taken into consideration, it would seem that our prayers have no real effect, and are, therefore, superfluous, other than Shevah, Hodaah, and perhaps Shomea' Tefillah. CC @DoubleAA

@Jake say he has an iron deficiency. He needs meat. Then what? My local kosher supermarket carries shelf-stable, boxed, self-heating meat meals. What's the guy in Wyoming supposed to do?

@DoubleAA, he has to be Jewish. If you can demonstrate your Jewishness on an anonymous internet Q&A site, then Shokhet can write up an answer. ;-)

I'm curious if the downvote was because the voter felt this wasn't a quality question or because it was offensive.
