comment What is the basis to allow heart transplatation?
If you hold that death really is based on heard function, wouldn't anyone who has that issue with murdering the patient also have an issue with obtaining the heart for transplant in the first place?

comment Looking for a computer program or method to list all weekday / Shabbat no-El_Maleh days
@DanF I know; I meant a list of all days tachanun is not recited (with dates) rather than just Mondays Thursdays and shabbos.

Can you share your manual excel file? I'm trying to see if I can come up with something and it would help to have your list of reasons, i.e. titles of the days it's omitted.

comment is the clear liquid that comes out of man considered zera?
Welcome to Mi.yodeya! This site tries to avoid questions for psak, as you should always see your local orthodox Rabbi and not rely on Internet strangers!

comment Mashiach in year 6000?
While a good summary of the issues it doesn't really answer my question of "IS it literal/ is it normative to treat it literally." I may not have been clear enough ---I'll edit my question.

comment How do I repeal rabbinic laws? Who to contact? What is the process?
Rabbinic laws cannot be repealed the way you seem to think they can, (and fire on shabbos is actually a torah prohibition....). I'm still not sure what you're trying to ask --how could you repeal a law that applies to everyone?

@mevaqesh where to find a good mishna brura in English doesn't seem much different than this. About Judaism would be asking ABOUT the mishna brura, not where to buy one.

@mevaqesh then how are product recommendations ever on topic? A sefer is not about Judaism, it's a Jewish need but there are plenty sefer recommendations on here.
