comment How do you know what God wants without prophets now to tell you?
well said, and the final words of the prophets: "Remember the teaching of Moses, My servant, the laws and ordinances which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel; Lo, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord" Malachi 3:22

@Yishai because he is the emmisary. also can't ask everyone to stand all the time. too much for the tzibur.

@Shmuel God gave the reason and even warned the Jews that if they would do the same evil deeds, the land would vomit them out, which it eventually did.

comment do we really have free choice?
the Rambam wrote specifically not like this on the mishna in Rosh Hashana "all are examined in one sweeping look (skira achat)" but rather that God is not bound to time, all of the past and the future are before Him simultaneously as something in the present

comment Do Neanderthals had soul?
@IsaacMoses the premises to the question are against judaism such as the he is a descendant of neanderthals which negates the whole torah.
