comment Is Halacha a system of Civil Law or Common Law?
Re dicta: I think it's reasonable in some cases to add more weight to a position that someone actually implemented Lemaaseh and didn't just speak theoretically about.

comment Is there a term for wine poured for a kosher libation?
@YehudaW 'Nesachim' means 'libations'. It says nothing about what was being libated or to whom or why. 'Yayn Nesech' means 'wine of libation' without saying to whom or why it is being libated. 'Nissuch hamitz tappuzim' means "the libation of orange juice". These are just words. Use them, like all words, to say whatever you mean to say.

comment Eating bread/pastries from a non-Jewish baker
@user6591 What's wrong with eggs? Did they never use Chelev or lard in bread before, but now they do? What changed regarding grease?

comment What is the tikkun for a unmarried Jewish man that slept with a non Jewish woman with protection?
Disagreeing with the Rambam is not a sin. Disagreeing with all of traditional Talmudic Judaism based on the claim that they didn't notice the simple reading of the adjacent verse is pretty blasphemous in that it accuses them all of being bumbling buffoons.

Oy! If only the Rambam had read the surrounding verses he may not have made that mistake! Goes to show...

comment Why do we refer to Shavuot as the “time of receiving the Torah” when all that occured was hearing the 10 Commandments?
Wikipedia on Torah: It has a range of meanings. It can most specifically mean the first five books of the twenty-four books of the Tanakh, it usually includes the rabbinic commentaries, the term Torah means instruction and offers a way of life for those who follow it, it can mean the continued narrative from Genesis to the end of the Tanakh, it can even mean the totality of Jewish teaching, culture and practice en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torah

What about carrying one of those keys that's location sensitive near a car? You're not actually ever putting it in the ignition!

comment What is the definition of death for a fish?
Logic? You said "If a fish is considered shechted when it is taken out of the water" and we know that a fish is alive when it's flopping and swimming and generally alive. Hence, everything follows. What several assertions have I made?
