@Matt wasnt 100% sure what he was asking. then offered my answer that he may need to pursue other avenues such as the shaar bechina of chovos halevavos rather than plain torah study or philosophy.

@YeZ Rambam's sefer hamitzvot, 1st mitzva (belief in Gd). the ramban has a commentary there. you never heard of this disagreement?

@Matt I read in the name of Rabbi Yeruchem of Mir that when he had doubts of emuna, he was instructed to study chumash/rashi. he tried it and said it worked. i thought daniel was going along these lines.

what do you mean by "trying" and what does learning torah have to do with believing in Gd from a rationalistic point of view?

comment Killing Civilians in a defensive war
@dotancohen without religion there is no morality. thats pretty low to compare such a holy man to islamist wackos

comment Killing Civilians in a defensive war
@dotancohen is it possible that Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu zt'l knows better than you the torah perspective on this question? we are in a state of war. if we lose even once, we will all be slaughtered brutally and mercilessly. what you are doing is noble but it might not be best policy long term

comment How are “Orthoprax” people treated in halacha?
@Matt and this is why i wrote in the answer that i'm not so sure they really dont believe. many are just confused souls who believe deep down but wont admit it

comment Killing Civilians in a defensive war
@dotancohen your policy is obviously not working. the arabs'desire to destroy israel is only increasing from all perspectives. i think we will see in the end that the rabbi was right. you have noble intentions but sometimes its just kill or be killed

comment How are “Orthoprax” people treated in halacha?
@Matt could also be that today taava/mental distraction/doubt is much stronger than in the rambam's time due to technology, darwin, etc, so the rambam may not be so stringent with his words if he lived in our times
