comment Is there a penalty under the law for attempted adultery?
Does the need for atonement entail punishability "under the law"?

comment Do we have any proof (Biblical or other Judaic) that current-day Arabs have lineage from Yishma'el?
Hello Ariel Baradarian and welcome to mi.yodeya! Your answer would be greatly improved by citing and quoting your sources, which could make it subject to the analysis/disclaimer in Yishai's answer.

comment How did 70 souls give birth to millions in a few generations?
Please note too the Tana whose opinion is that Ya'akov had twice as many children as are listed at each birth. . . and other opinions that accord with it explaining how the number 70 (or 66) is just the immediate family but there were more spouses and relatives around as well. I believe the Torah itself alludes to this fact.

comment Fasting on shabbas 10 Teves
Regarding the premise of universality, see e.g. here, but more to the point, the source itself takes the d'rasha for granted apparently (top line and previous page).

comment Ancient Triennial Cycle Today
See here for a description of the practice in question, including super cool wheel-shaped reconstructed calendars.

comment Fasting on shabbas 10 Teves
Isn't the answer right there in the Beis Yosef? Rav David Avudarham(?) wrote that the source psauk for this fast uses the word "b'etzem" just like that of Yom Hakipurim. So, by fiat (g'zeras haKasuv) it must be observed on the given date.

comment Can a person (or cat) be both alive and dead at the same time? (Schrödinger's paradox)
What does it mean to have the status other than to have a legal ramification?

comment Can a person (or cat) be both alive and dead at the same time? (Schrödinger's paradox)
Do you have in mind legal ramifications other than the one you linked? Is there reason to believe that the general answer to this question is not covered by the generalized parts of the yibum question's?

Closely related: judaism.stackexchange.com/q/1680/3 - the answers more than the question.

@IsaacMoses That's why I didn't vote to migrate! On-topic there does not necessarily imply off-topic here (which probably contributes to that site having so much trouble existing).
