comment Carrying on Chol HaMoed
That's what I said. They are all asur unless there is a reason they aren't. What reason might apply here where there is no purpose?

Why would there not be a prohibition? All melachot are prohibited on Chol Hamoed unless there is a reason to permit it

How does she know when the seven days are over? what if day "1" wasn't the right color red and was pure.

No time now before Chag, but just to note that the other version mentioned is a established custom as well.

comment What is the best way to keep bugs out of the sukkah?
I disagree on this one and the hex nut one. They require no Jewish understanding of the situation. The others do utilize an understanding of the situation and expectations that only a Jew would have. Hence they require our experts.

@Isaac It doesn't involve any Judaism expertise. We aren't trying to attract a bunch of entomologists. What about: My sukkah uses this kind of hinge. Should I secure it with a nail or a screw? What are the benefits and drawbacks of each?

What is the best way to program... in the sukkah? What about in a sukkah on a boat (according to r Akiva that such a sukkah is kosher)?

I thought atheism meant believing that no god exists.

@AL 1) This is certainly a case of "absolutely forced to". 2) Why would you expect there to be pshat value here? Who cares in what order God did what in how much time? Outside of Drash-land it is completely irrelevant.

@yoel Rambam thought only the sun revolved around the earth. This is empirically false. He'd be the first to admit it.

@yoel It means they both revolve around each other which is true and which isn't what the Rambam thought

@goal I never said their position was not thinking. What I did say is accepting it blindly in the face of clear empirical evidence otherwise without seeking any reconciliation is. You yourself said when they contradict you don't think about it and just believe whatever you decide is the "Torah" position. Perhaps then you misunderstood what I said about what you said :) Don't worry; no hard feelings
