comment Menorah with uneven spacing
Can you cite a source for "Two may light in a single Menorah for the first three days of Chanukkah; each in his end of the Menorah"? I seem vaguely to recall seeing the contrary.

comment Why is sleeping with shoes on a taste of death?
Weird. I thought sleeping is a taste (or a sixtieth actually) of death irrespective of one's footwear.

comment Asking A Gentile To Perform Safeq Melakhah
Well, it kinda makes sense. If asking him to so a m'lacha is an action forbidden by order of the rabbis, then asking him to do something that may be a m'lacha is an action that may be forbidden by order of the rabbis, i.e. a safek d'rabanan.

comment Cannibalism, Jew or Gentile?
Any source for your claim that "Jews are prohibitied [sic] to have an autopsy" (but can perform one on non-Jews)?

comment Cannibalism, Jew or Gentile?
I don't see how this answers the question. Rather, it raises another question and answers it.

comment How do I explain the various meanings of “Ruach HaKodesh” in English?
Note also that it's not literally "holy spirit": that'd be ruach k'dosha. More on that at judaism.stackexchange.com/q/10164.

comment How do I explain the various meanings of “Ruach HaKodesh” in English?
I've reopened this question per NBZ's edit and my subsequent one. The first half of the comment by @IsaacMoses remains true, though, IMO: you'd do well to include in the question more info on the meaning or context of the phrase as you understand it.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about nonsense.
