comment Why can't we say God's name?
@AL The Kitzur Shulchan Aruch explains why; it is considered a lack of fear of Hashem to use his Name conversationally.

comment Which alphabet were the original Torah scrolls in?
@SethJ Could the Gemora that the Mem and Samach in the Luchos were standing by miracle in the Luchos (because the center didn't fall out) give any clues?

comment Different Aliyot for Same Torah Reading
@DoubleAA Here is the Hebrew/English version of the siddur - it only deals with outside Israel. In the Hebrew only version (I couldn't find it online), Levi and Shlishi start in the same place in Israel and outside Israel, but in Israel Shlishi continues till the end of the reading.

comment Shaving vs. Hair cutting on Chol Hamoed
Good question. But IMHO shaving a minors beard is a stronger question than that.

comment Different Aliyot for Same Torah Reading
@DoubleAA It's entitled קריאה בארץ ישראל ליום ראשון דחול המועד, ובחו"ל - יום טוב שני של פסח and deals with both. The start of Levi and Shlishi is the same either way.

comment Different Aliyot for Same Torah Reading
In my siddur (Tehillas Hashem) it's exactly the same. Do you want to edit into your question which siddur, as well as where the breaks are? Levi is from אלה מועדי ה and Shlishi starts וספרתם לכם on both occasions.

comment What's the ultimate fate of Satan?
Zohar (II, 163a, explained here) brings a parable of a harlot hired by a king to test his son; the harlot herself hopes that the prince will not succumb as she does her job

comment Can a gentile break shabbos only on a Rabbinic level?
According to the Binyon Tzion cited in your source, carrying a key would certainly not be considered enough even in a reshus harabim. The question is whether we follow his ruling l'maaseh - lehakel or lehachmir..

comment What does “Maaseh Rav” mean?
@DoubleAA Good question. Perhaps to stick to the phrase מעשה רב that is used in other places in Shas, e.g. Shabbos 21a and 126b, Baba Kama 68a, Nidda 65b

comment Why can't we say God's name?
@DoubleAA Seems like Kitzur Shulchan Aruch considers any other use as in vain.
