comment Bereishit vs. science
All the animals were created as adults. In general you would be right. In general we go after our senses, but that is only because the Torah says to do so (like it says "a farmer believes and plants", that if he didn't believe, how would he know that his plants would grow?) It is also similar to the idea that "How do we know that the sun would rise tomorrow? From "Yom Valayla lo Yashvosu". All the more so in the past.

comment Do you have to close your blog / website on shabbos?
I just did. Though it is an answer to this question. One of the reasons that site exists is so that others do not view your site when they have shabbos. It is not to prevent you from selling on shabbos, but to prevent Lifnei Iver of Mesayeia (as mentioned in the Haskama from the institute of Science and Halacha) which would apply even to a blog.

comment Milchig / Fleishig Arrangement
Many question the whole idea of having one sink divided into two, because if cham miktzaso cham kulo (if part of an object is hot, the whole piece is hot), when one pours hot water (over 110 F) onto the Fleishig side, the whole sink becomes fleishig, and then when one pours hot water over the milchig, it absorbs from the milk side, and causes Basar and Chalav.

comment Things we do not do because of Danger
Cheese/butter and cream are different according to Minhag Chabad. Milk as well as cheese is a problem, however butter isn't because it's not pure milk. (look in Shaarei Halacha uminhag as well as the Reshimos mentioned there)
