Krum as a Bagel passionately posts about how the vibrancy of living Torah, especially after the rebound from the Holocaust only two generations in the past, is proof enough that the Torah is true, that it is an etz chaim ( my own paraphrase). Read his post, its excellent.

However I have a two-part question. His answer suffices for today what will be the answer in a hundred years from now if Orthodoxy is still vibrant, as it hopefully will be? You can't really give the rebound-from-the-brink answer forever.

Secondly, what would he have said is the compelling answer 60 years ago when it looked like it was all over?

In other words, I think his wonderful post is very time-bound. So what is the timeless answer?
