comment Why did God do nothing against the Romans that desecrated the Temple?
@JimThio historians don't know the cause of death, so it could have been some kind of "bug" in his brain.

comment Should I wear tefillin during Chol HaMoed?
Usually there is no unitary 'minhag Eretz Yisroel', but with regards to tefillin on chol hamoed, the original groups there all had one minhag - (the sefardim there and the talmidei hagra and chassidim all didn't wear it.)

comment In light of modern science, why is bee honey still kosher?
Maybe the release of an enzyme isn't enough to be considered "yotzei" from the non-kosher animal. Camel milk is clearly something the camel "creates" internally (and it doesn't depend on a specific food) but bees create honey directly from nectar in honeycombs.

comment How are pre-creation >4000 BCE human civilization and pre-flood >2300 BCE civilizations that continued reconciled with Judaism?
@Fred I think the problem with Aristotle's view is it would basically mean God isn't involved in the world, not because it contradicts the literal meaning of a couple pesukim.

comment Does מין mean Christian, and if so what are the implications?
christianity would be heresy either way for a Jew so what nafka mina is there? (though your example may often be dealt with differently nowadays.)

comment Any Halachic Problems with App Publishing?
Lifnei iver is more limited than that, so you don't need to worry about people using it on shabbos, etc.
