Indeed that reason says that currently chazal are not right and science is. In any event, sourcing any of this would be invaluable.

Mitzva means "Biblical injunctive"? What about the blessing "al mitzvat eiruv"?

comment Rabbinic understandings of non-Divine origin of Onqelos
@MoriDoweedhYaa3gob I never made a claim about what Chazal believed. I just protested LazerA's making such an absolute claim.

comment Do I have to check my fruits and vegetables [for insects] before I put them in a smoothie?
There is no second question. Just answer what is the din for things which are miut hamatzui and what is the din for things that are rov/vadai. You don't need to deal with which fruits are which. You haven't justified why a miut hamatzui makes a cheftza shel issur that ein mevatlin should apply. You haven't even justified why ein mevatlin applies at all since no one is trying to mevatel anything!!

If it's just a miut hamatzui then you have a chiyuv bedika miderabanan. That's different than a vadai issur deoraita. It's not even clear the former is currently a cheftza shel issur, as opposed to just having a chiyuv bedika. Plus you haven't even addressed why this is mevatel issur if you are just trying to make it into a liquid.

I don't know if you are talking about fruits which for sure have bugs or might have bugs. There are different kinds and it can make a difference.

What do you mean "known"? If it is known then you have to remove the bugs, not just check for them...

The Mitzva is to be as covered when sleeping alone as if one were outside with a bunch of men?? It sounds more like this is a different kind of tzniyut than what the OP referred to.
