comment How is knowledge of G-d different from any other knowledge?
@Eliezer right, I think the same holds for the "model of G-d".

comment If someone has BO and can't smell themselves, may they say blessings?
There is a whole debate in BRACHOS (Bavli) about citing Shema when there is foul smell. However, if one can not smell themselves, they would not be aware of such smell, hence read Shema any way. King of kings can not "smell" the way a human would, as no "body" is involved nor a "figure of a body" nonetheless a nose.

comment Why aren't Purim and Channuka considered a violation of לֹא תֹסִפוּ?
Is there a "accept answer" like in StackOverflow? Could not find anyone giving a good complete answer. Also - Isn't this a slippery slope for Rabinical thinking? AFAIK Karaites hold that LO TOSIFU (and LO TIGRAU) is the basis of their strict adherence to written (tanach) law.

comment Understanding of Ps. 137 before the exile
They would probably guess that the author(s) has been to Babylon (trading?), where they were captured and wrote the poem: "for there our captors asked us for songs, our tormentors demanded songs of joy; they said, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”
