comment Difference between behema and chaya
@Scimonster for example Kilaim 8. the wild ox is either a behema or chaya, though there it seems to refer to domestication

do you think it means he held of darwinian common ancestry? it surely does not fit the plain meaning of genesis "of its kind..."

comment Significance of Dead Sea
@DanF how many places in the world on this scale? you can count them with one hand. "some place has to be the lowest place" - dont understand your point. the name in the torah is "salt sea" - so what?

comment Can one refer to God as Vengeful?
"His work is perfect: for all His ways are justice: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He" Deut. 32:4 so if He is vengeful it is in a measured and just manner

comment Why was Kalev allowed to lie to his co-spies?
not at all. i read a parsha sheet citing the zohar that they tried to lift the fruits but were unable until kalev came and was able to. this was a sign he would inherit the land and out of jealousy they wanted to kill him until he prayed and they were able to carry the fruits.
