comment Animals Created By Sefer Yetzirah
torahdoc.free.fr/torahdoc/[1]%20Parasha/Rav%20Friedman/5769/… Based on this link which explains why the Malchim lost the Torah by eating Basar B'Chalav even though there was no sin on Avraham's part for cooking Basar B'Chalav as the animal was created through Sefer Yetzira. This indicates that there is no issue of Basar B'Chalav by a animal that is created through Sefer Yetzira.

comment Postponing circumcision: what consequences?
If you truly do not believe, then there is no consequence that will matter to you, as the consequence of Kareis is part and parcel of believing in God and that God will punish him with such. That having been said, it would not be your child's fault as he would be considered a Tinok Shenishba - a child that is raised amongst gentiles.

comment Why was Akeidas Yitzchok a bigger test (Nisayon) for Avraham than for Yitzchok?
Yitzchok was 37. I doubt he was too young to fight. Perhaps in deference to his father he did not fight.

comment Is the Shehechiyanu bracha recited when eating an esrog fruit?
@Josh Waxman: I eat Esrog every year, and I am alive and well Boruch Hashem. I do not eat the peel, only the inside, and as you know an Esrog has a thick peel. I do not think there is any danger in eating it.
