comment I saw someone claim that, “In Zohar of Pinchos, that an Eishes Ish is לזר מותרת if her husband allows.”?
@user6591 I believe there is an entry on Kabbalah but I've never seen one on Kabbalah bashing.

comment Age of Universe and Shabbat
I didn't downvote, but as your latter quote shows clearly the question is one of understanding a discrepancy, not justifying a particular practice. I maintain that this doesn't address the question (unless you are claiming "God said so and don't ask questions").

@user6591 I don't see why it should matter who found the source.

@YEZ I don't think he was disputing that Shabbat is 24 Earth hours. The question as I understood it was Hashkafic: how does a 24 hour period commemorate a billion year period?

@Yit Ok... so we're agreeing that Danny's comment is inaccurate.

Right. So why isn't our commemorative day also a 24 hour day which spans billions of years?

comment Age of Universe and Shabbat
I think so, yes. It doesn't appear that you have answered the question, which is why the day we use as commemoration is shorter than the day being commemorated. You just say why it's possible that the day being commemorated is longer. That isn't an answer.

I don't see how that is relevant, even if it is true.

So why don't we keep billion year long "24 hour" Sabbatot nowadays?

Bad grammar usually just means it's a yeshivish guy instead of an academic. Not what you want here, I'm guessing.

@Yitzchak They are explicit verses but they do not explicitly discuss this case... The whole point is the Zohar would be claiming this is not a case of Niuf. Where do your verses define what Niuf is that we shouldn't do it?

comment Israel Am v.s. Goy
Why in some cases do you say they are complimentary but in others they are a product of different eras? Can't they have the same complimentary meanings even when not used in conjunction with each other?

comment Israel Am v.s. Goy
That idea alone is hand-waving. You have to actually do the nitty-gritty of what means what when to have a persuasive answer.

Is "giving a bracha to the children that they should grow up in the Torah" a Segulah for having grandchildren? Whence do you know this?

@DannySchoemann It it not explicitly forbidden in the Torah! Just because the claim comes from a polemic doesn't mean you have to give bad answers. What you can say is it is highly unlikely the Zohar would allow something which we have no other record of a Tanna allowing.
