comment Does sorcery/black magic exist today?
I always wondered about the dibbuk stories... do you know of anyone who explains what that's all about?

comment What is a Hava Amina Teretz?
I think it would be hard to answer you without knowing where you heard the term "hava amina teretz" (and in what context or in what Gemara specifically)?

comment What is a Hava Amina Teretz?
Just to refine a little bit... A kasha or kushya is a difficulty or attack, a teirutz is a removal of the difficulty or attack. A She'eila is a question and a teshuva is an answer. There is a distinction between a teirutz and a teshuva.

@user6591 The Gra would have a proof of there was a declining progression of abilities. And is it true that the Rambam dismissed biblical magic based on his own observations in his time?

comment Does saying “I promise…” constitute any halachic obligation?
@DanF The truth is that I never fully worked out my position on using material from people who are not Orthodox or even not Jewish at all (C.S Lewis for example). I just wanted to point this out in case it does make a difference to someone. The Rambam I was referencing is Hilchos Teshuva 3:8, (specifically the way I saw it explained by a quote of Rav Yosef Dov Soloveitchik's address at the 1975 RCA convention.)
