    These people speak and tens of thousands to tens of millions listen.

    Only G-d determines the Fate of Everyone and Everything in the Multiverse.

    But great people from ancient thinkers to Elon Musk serve as conduits for changing minds of people.

    I assume he means "influencers." There are tons of them and can make a lot of money. Someone with around 40M followers can bring in $15K/mo just in advertisers. Sponsors on tops of that could be huge.

    If you aren't trying to monetize your views, then who cares if most disagree?

    Take a look at these "celebrities" and ask yourself one question... Would they be of any use to you if you were crashed on a desert island or if the zombie apocalypse happened tomorrow? The answer to that question for 99.999% of them is "No". Most of them wouldn't be good for anything except to sell them for a box of ammo.


    Elon Musk is one of the very few exceptions to the rule.
    Some are funny and serve a useful purpose. The "Fit Girls" are sure funny influencers, they include irrelevant stuff to workouts like matching neon colors, but if they are getting girls and women into the gym to lift weights more power to them. Hip thrusts do serve a purpose, after all.

    Bull$#@!. God helps those who help themselves. God isn't going to make you lose weight if you eat 5000 calories a day sitting on your ass with as little movement as possible.

    Maybe , but we must remember that outside their area of expertise, their opinion holds no more merit than ours.
