comment Does demolishing idolatry require specific authority?
@Ali I thought you were asking if there was such a command and which sources require it (eg. "Tanachial", Rabbinic, Talmud etc.).

@Yehoshua I never said I knew. I said your question is unsupported and therefore weak.

comment How do we reconcile the order of creating animals betweeen Genesis and science?
@good_ole_ray Do you have a degree in philosophy of science, that you can understand critiques of the epistemic and ontic issues surrounding scientific theories?

How do you know he had any descendants at the time for whom a birthright would be useful after his passing? If this was the only way to live, then I imagine his descendants would prefer being born to having a birthright.

Rebecca was a neviah? Why wasn't she mentioned on the list of seven prophetesses (Megillah 14a)?

comment Where does the minhag of holding a pinky up to the Torah come from?
@devirkahan You didn't answer my question. Is it that the answers don't discuss the pinky, or the questions don't discuss the pinky? If you agree the questions are the same then it is a duplicate question.

@devirkahan Do you mean none of the answers there explain why it's the pinky finger, or that none of those question ASK about the pinky finger?

comment Does Genesis 2:4 say there was only one day of creation?
Perhaps there are two separate creation stories...

comment Can one trust the Kashrut of Alcoholic Beverages in bars?
@Shalom (Not sure but I doubt it, see this.) I don't really follow why spice/food matters (and neither IIUC did R Pinchas Teitz who argued on R Moshe). Bittul relies on the taste not being present (hence the whole kefiela business). It's abundantly clear that a kefeila here would say it's ta'am leshevach.
