indeed it shows one can repent but how does this show that the purpose of nature is to provide an arena for free will.

comment How are pre-creation >4000 BCE human civilization and pre-flood >2300 BCE civilizations that continued reconciled with Judaism?
@TRiG thats not what i wrote. God made the world in such a way that free will is possible. so there must exist some loopholes to explain the world from a naturalist perspective. hence, one needs to look at all the evidence and weigh which side is more correct from the big picture

comment Why didn't Eliyahu Hanavi reveal himself to me?
how do you know they learn lishma? that's a very high level. according to R.Chaim Vital if you don't see all the things R.Meir lists in Avot ch.6 happening to you, then you're not learning lishma.

comment Is asking for a blessing in his granary asking for a miracle?
an israeli friend of mine from Netivot told me how he witnessed the Baba Sali bless a bottle of wine and the gabai put it in a paper bag and poured it continuously to all the hundreds of guests throughout the day.

comment Why Choose Talmud Bavli For The Daily Study
i think simply because it gives more "chiyus" (life) than any other type of learning. others have told me the same thing.

comment Why is Bil'am not surprised that his mule is talking to him?
the same reasons the egyptians are not surprised by the ten plagues. many even left their animals out after being warned of the plague of hail.

comment Is asking for a blessing in his granary asking for a miracle?
@DoubleAA no because the pile of wheat is right in front of you. normally it is forbidden to pray for things that already happened. so what are you praying for here?
