comment What is “blood that moved from one place to another”?
@DoubleAA - I didn't make any judgments about chalita; I'm learning about melicha now. It's quite possible that when I get there, I'll raise another question about chalita, as you say... :)

comment How could boiling 3 eggs at a time help?
@CHM - 60% != 1/60. You need 60 parts kosher to nullify the forbidden taste, i.e. 98.4%

@DoubleAA - Regarding them all having the same taste, that's exactly the case that YD 109:2 is dealing with, where you have min b'mino, i.e. the same taste, and you still require 60:1 to nullify the issur.

@DoubleAA - have you ever had a chullent with whole eggs in it? The eggs fully absorb the meat taste. So yes, eggshells are porous.

That's talking about yavesh b'yavesh, where there's no taste transfer. Our case is where one part treif was cooked with 2 parts kosher. In which case you need 60:1 to nullify the taste. Yoreh Deah 109:2 - thanks for the link!

comment Why is techeles not universally accepted?
This is not the same as kashrus of food, where there's an actual issur to eat neveila, basar b'chalav etc. Kala ilan involves an issur of deception, where someone is tricking someone else into thinking that this is real techeles; here the avaryan is the trickster, not the person who wears the fake techeles - unless they happen to be the same person and the fool thinks he can trick G-d. But if someone has determined, to the best of their ability, that this is "real" techeles, there is at least no loss in wearing it, and possibly an aseh d'oraysa to gain.

I believe the accepted answer judaism.stackexchange.com/a/8853/159 addresses your approach directly.

comment Why is Judaism not Racism?
That's a pretty weird comment, @Sam. You'll have to justify several sweeping statements in there if you want a serious response.
