comment Other Major Jewish Books Whose Authorship is in Dispute beside the Zohar
Sefer Hayashar (mussar), Torah Lishmah, and if we count dispute as contemporary Haredim casting aspersions, R. Avraham b. Harambam's Maamar al Aggados, and R. Hirsch's writings on evolution.

comment Midrashic(?) Proof from Design story about overturned inkwell
It looks like R. Kaplan's version is combination of Chovos Halevavos and the above Midrash, which does not actually appear in the Chovos Halevavos, despite R. Kaplan's footnote.

@SkinnyJ In American law, doesn't the victim have to press charges for the state to intervene? I don't think that's true in halacha though.
