Similarly the Ramban says first the elements were created that would be the building blocks for everything else.

comment ka-kosher legit?
I wouldn't say that. As the Star-K said, some Orthodox hechshers are saying "we'll certify the probability of bugs is low enough to not need checking", others are saying "you figure out the bugs yourself."

comment Did the Torah Sages discuss evolution
Agreed that at one level, they're playing "ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer" ... but I like the possibility that he's trying to get Hillel mad with racial slurs, and Hillel responds with a biology lesson.

comment Was Darius Jewish?
@Emetv'Shalom yes, he's explicitly said it means "establish a Jewish government over the land of Israel." (His proof is a rabbinic opinion that the war against Amalek, which first requires a "king", could have been fulfilled by the prophet Samuel who instead functioned as a "judge.") He feels that today's State qualifies.

comment kosher murder switch?
@yEz "do the shabbos definitions of gramma apply to other halachos?" -- it's a machlokes. "Can I make a gramma murder switch?" -- most switches are second-degree murder anyhow, and second-degree murder is still murder.
