comment Were Adam and Eve Jewish?
According to your reasoning, if a Jew wanted to keep Shabbat but does not keep other Mitzvot, he wouldn't be able to keep Shabbat?

comment According to Halacha are you permitted to melt cheese on Shabbos?
@DoubleAA I thought there would be a difference in Bishul if you are melting something, but not cooking it per se.

@DoubleAA the bread is on the blech, the cheese is placed on the bread. So the cheese isn't on the heat source directly. Wouldn't that be indirect? or is that considered one item and direct?

comment Is there “פה שאסר הוא פה שהתיר” or a “מגו” in American law?
@msh210 Boy you are tough. Thank you for pushing me on this. I guess I was hoping Hamvin Yavin. However, you are correct, I should have explained the principle. I have edited the question to include a basic explanation. Thank you for your assistance on this.

comment Is there “פה שאסר הוא פה שהתיר” or a “מגו” in American law?
Hmm. I see your perspective, but I am trying to get American Law examples that may help illustrate the principle. Furthermore, one may argue the rule you quoted is dealing with comparative religion. I am asking a law question not a religion question. Furthermore one could argue that Sheva Mitzvos Bnei Noach demand a court system. We might debate that point. Additionally see here for a usage already accepted: judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/18353/… Thanks for re-considering this.

comment Why do we have the Bakasha, request, of Shema Koleinu, hear our voices in the Shemoneh Esreh?
@msh210 I added to the question to make it unique. I still don't feel satisfied with the answers that are given on the question you directed me to.
