comment why half-believe the Torah?
Maybe I was distracted by Isaac Moses' comment and addressed its concern more than the question.

comment Why do/did Jews sacrifice animals?
1. The Ramba"n also stresses the transformative power of sacrifices in terms of expiation of sin and redemption of the individual. 2. Bonus: The awesome Meshech Chachma cited in the article references electricity in explaining the connection between people and Hashem.

comment Sheva Brachos Seder
@Gershon Gold - Shabas and yom tov should suffice. See Even Ha'ezer 62:8.

comment Marror and Chazeres on the seder plate
The Tosafos I referenced explains that the mishna used that term specifically to indicate that even if the only vegetable available was one suitable for maror one would still dip twice in order to inspire the children's questions.

comment Tzlach - source of name?
Are you sure the Tzlach doesn't have a book of responsa known as Noda BiYehuda? Just kidding. The Dagul Mer'vava wrote both!

comment Why bother with n'vi'im?
After thinking a little about it, I think the question would still be a good question for Ramba"m: If everyone attains the capability of נבואה, why doesn't Hashem just tell them all the נבואה rather than telling one of them and having him tell the others? Alternatively, addressing Ramba"m's premise: Why did Hashem make the bar so high for figuring out what He wants if it is expected of all people?
