@DoubleAA Would it be better if I added "(according to the Ashk'nazi practice that precludes relying on taste to determine absorption)"?

comment Signs of Judgment day
[continued] Also don't assume that two things coincide (i.e. are the same) without basis for that assumption; for example, the day God brings people back from the dead, the day He judges people, and the day the messiah comes; if you want to ask about one of those, please specify which you mean.)

comment Signs of Judgment day
You attempts to clarify the question in your comments are nice, but please edit the question instead so that it asks precisely what you mean to ask, using terms that will be understood by a typical reader of the site (either will be understood anyway, or because you explain it in the question). (Don't assume that a term in common use in discussions of your own beliefs will be understood by experts in Judaism. [continued]

comment Can one nullify permitted stuff?
@DoubleAA, I find it hard to believe that an egg cooked in milk can be pareve, even if it doesn't taste of milk. (Note that SA 94:6 does not say "if it tastes like meat"!) If you can adequately support that (from a source that holds, as we do, that eggshells are considered porous), I'll gladly remove the example from the question. But, whether that example is a good one or not, my question remains.

@sabbahillel If there's a difference between parish and other forms of bitul in this regard, I think an answer can address that.

comment Do Jews believe in Heaven and Hell?
@DoubleAA if it is about Jews' and not Judaism's opinions, it's off-topic; as my comment above indicates, I'm not sure what it's about.

comment Why does “aseh doche lo saaseh”?
@ShmuelBrin nice, but (1) your question is on the Meshech Chochma: I'm just the reporter. And (2) I believe it says elsewhere אנס ר׳ פטריה ולאו כמאן דעבד דמי.

comment Do Jews believe in Heaven and Hell?
I don't understand this answer. I mean, the first sentence seems to answer the question. But it refers to secular Jews whereas the second sentence refers to a religion and prayer (both irrelevant to secular Jews). Moreover, it's unclear what your second and third sentences have to do with the rest of the answer, or with the question.
