You're asking why we reject an interpretation that no one has held of?

comment Answering Atheist about Torah miracles
I don't know if that quote by Feynman is applicable here. He's talking (I assume) about sum-over-paths quantum mechanics, not evolution.

comment What is the Purpose of Punishments in the Afterlife?
Sources for your last sentence would be nice. I thought the klal was us Rachmastrivka Chassidim but I didn't know that not being part of the klal was so bad.
