comment Can one destroy a bird's nest if the noise bothers him?
While that website is Israeli, it doesn't appear to be Jewish.

comment In Rambam's negative theology, why are G-d's attributes of action considered something that we can know about G-d?
This is just the standard philosophical issue of essential and accidental properties plato.stanford.edu/entries/essential-accidental

comment How will the messiah deal with Khazars and Sabbateans, who falsely claim to be Jews?
Probably treat them as non-Jews. Do any of them still exist?

comment Do the actions of animals have moral value?
It doesn't really matter what Wad Cheber thinks, actually. Sources improve posts. Period.

comment Definition of the term “Talmud” in the phrase “Talmud Torah”
@DanF You didn't quote Mishne Torah. You quoted his Commentary to the Mishna which was written in Arabic.

comment Definition of the term “Talmud” in the phrase “Talmud Torah”
almost dupe judaism.stackexchange.com/q/8025/759 It seems to be coming out of Piel (look at other parallel forms (ex תשלום תנחום) which derive from Piel verbs שילם ניחם) and hence would be closer to teaching than learning.

comment Talmud reference - eagles approaching nests
@ninamag One should always include a reference when quoting both because A) it's illegal to do otherwise, and B) it can help people see context which could help them find an answer.

comment Can a person break an oath to G-d to save a life?
Yes so your answer is misleading in that regard even if your conclusion is correct.

comment When does personhood begin?
@Daniel Without a technical Hebrew term for the sought after status, it will be nigh impossible to even address, IMO.

comment Can a person break an oath to G-d to save a life?
Even non capital offenses in those categories may be of similar stringency in this regard.

comment When does personhood begin?
"That circularity is part of why it is such a challenge." No, circularity just means you haven't defined and used English words effectively. (Unless the challenge you referred to is understanding the OP's question...)

comment Can a person break an oath to G-d to save a life?
Why might you think he can or can't break the oath? Please edit to clarify.

comment When does personhood begin?
@CortAmmon That is completely circular. "The only requirement to being married is simply having passed the moment where the statements of the belief system allowing you to marry apply." (using your definition of "becoming a person" above)
1d
comment When does personhood begin?
@CortAmmon Is the OP then asking at which point a human can be murdered? Or when a human can be married? Or own money? Or inherit? Or have familial relationships? Or become ritually impure upon death? One can ask about each of those and more. Is the OP asking for the borders of every one of those? That is likely close-able as Too Broad. Other than that last option I don't know how to reasonably interpret this post as open-able question for Mi Yodeya.
