comment Do Amalekians not have souls?
@DoubleAA because nowhere does it say they are exempt from the 7 mitzvot of B"N. an amalekite can even convert to a Jew

@DoubleAA nonjews have 7 mitzvot and will be judged in the future on whether they kept them as explained in tractate avodah zara.

@DoubleAA they can speak and have free will just like me and you. otherwise they would not be liable for their actions.

copying the contents of my brain does not mean copying me. what I am is intangible (at least physically)

comment Why do we refer to it as the Well of Miriam?
@DoubleAA are you suggesting it was not miraculous like the torah claims? after all it was portable and gave water to 2 million people for 40 years.

i suspect there's some special story behind that "rock" or whatever it was see: chabad.org/kabbalah/article_cdo/aid/380282/jewish/… which shows it did alot more than just spew water.

comment Is oral intercourse permitted according to halacha?
and there is a special heter for shelo kedarka because the verse uses the plural term mishkevei isha. your extrapolation of that to oral sex is in my opinion totally incorrect.

comment Is oral intercourse permitted according to halacha?
@Shmuel maybe you should add to your answer that you have not found even one major contemporary posek which permits this. right now you are giving a heter to the world because of how you interpret the tosfot harid.

@Shmuel nice exposition. would be improved if you cite the halacha according to the modern day poskim such as Reb Moshe, Rav Ovadiah or Rav Elyashiv, Rav Sheinberg etc. would be interesting to know if any of them actually permit this halacha l'maase.
