comment what induces a person to become more devoted in his religious pursuits?
Rambam is saying that one should meditate on the greatness of G-d, and that this will cause one to feel great love for and yearning for Him, motivating you to serve Him enthusiastically. (This is actually similar to Chabad spirituality, if I understand it correctly.) Even if you think science explains the universe, there are still many reasons to be in awe of the greatness of G-d.

comment Is cholent required?
I have a feeling that's OK. :) For one thing, I think heating up some dry food on a warming tray is probably preferable because it might be less likely to cause a violation of the laws of Shabbos. (See this list of 5 conditions for serving cholent correctly: ohr.edu/this_week/insights_into_halacha/5294).

comment May one make oatmeal on Shabbos?
The answer does not seem to be dependent on whether the oatmeal is precooked. kashrut.org/forum/viewpost.asp?mid=9761 In any case, instant oatmeal is not precooked -- it is lightly steamed and then cut into very small pieces.
