comment Eved Knani versus a Woman
also an eved is not necessarily born a slave. so he might have acquired the mitzvot later in life

comment Does God's providence extend to all people or only righteous people?
you can have free will and at the same time God is in control. kind of like playing chess with a grandmaster. you have free will but in his foresight he can manipulate you however he wishes. see also this judaism.stackexchange.com/a/32011/1857

comment How do we know that the God we encountered at Sinai is the single, infinite God?
there is a midrash which says God opened the seven heavens and showed them in prophetic vision that there is no other.

@YEZ yes, exactly. hence intelligent design is a valid proof because ultimately it's either random evolution or God. once you eliminate the former, you prove the latter.

comment Shaar Yichud - Unity of God
place is in Him not the other way around. kind of like thinking of a blue orange fruit. it's "space" exists in your mind despite that you don't take up space in it

comment Shaar Yichud - Unity of God
never meant that He occupies space ch'v. Just that He must be everywhere, i.e. there is nowhere devoid of Him. you could say this is like the baal hatanya regarding the tzimtzum.
