comment Where else in the Talmud can we find a discussion of natural disasters?
Are you looking for a list of places in the Talmud that mention natural disasters? Or are you looking for something more significant?

comment Using an Etrog as a bathroom air freshener
Is your question specifically about bathrooms, or about any non-holy use? Because I can think of a handful of post-holiday uses to which nobody seems to object too strenuously.

comment Why were there so many killings by Jews in the Old Testament?
@Shimon it is certainly a rant, but it does appeal to authority (albeit, perhaps, not an authority you would rely upon for such central theological issues).

comment Leaving the room during a kabbalistic dvar Torah
The word "proper" is vague. Do you mean to ask whether it would be the preferred thing to do rather than subjecting yourself to improper education, or do you mean to ask whether it would be deemed tolerable despite the fact that you recognize it to be disrespectful?

comment What are the ancestors of Israelites?
See, also, that very Wikipedia article. "The eponymous biblical patriarch of the Israelites is Jacob, who wrestled with God who gave him a blessing and renamed him "Israel" because he had "striven with God and with men, and have prevailed". (Genesis 32:24-32)"

comment Declaration of Intent
Are you asking about those specific instances for a reason? Is your question meant to be broader? Do you have a reason to make the leaps you are making between Barukh she'amar and Ma Tovu and between lulav and Erev Pesach?

comment Tearing paper towels on Shabbat
@sta no, I do not believe wiping up a spill is on par with eating in terms of "need". At least, I've never considered it so, but perhaps a more senior and seasoned Halachic expert might disagree with me.

comment How would you describe the literary style of Torah?
"Early Biblical." Is that not what you're looking for?
