comment Why use the language of לֹא-תְבַשֵּׁל גְּדִי, בַּחֲלֵב אִמּוֹ
Depends how narrowly you take "eating".

I seem to recall a similar point made in a story about R Chaim of Brisk

You do have evidence. That they wore Homburgs.

comment Rabbis who don't wear neck ties?
I guess not, as long as you clarify that such a position is not a traditional Jewish one.

Are you implying Jews only started wearing them after they stopped being associated with non-Jews?????

comment Why are we allowed to light candles for second day yom tov if it is not ochel nefesh?
How is this different from the question you linked to? judaism.stackexchange.com/q/30864/759 Are you wondering why we apply mitokh (the leap discussed in that link) here? Are you asking specifically about the candles lit at night with a blessing?

comment Can someone who possibly already did a mitzva cover another such person with the b'racha?
@AvrohomYitzchok And msh210 would agree to that. He saying that together we can net sufficient obligation to allow blessing.

comment About what were rabbis ahead of the times?
Where does Newton claim independent existence of time? He claims independent flow. You also haven't shown that science currently believes in a logically necessary dependence of time and space.

Was R Avraham bar Chiyya the first to prove that?

comment About what were rabbis ahead of the times?
Then I don't see how the Baal Hatanya contradicts that. He doesn't indicate that time doesn't flow uniformly independent of space or mass.

comment About what were rabbis ahead of the times?
Independent in what way? Space isn't time even for special relativity. It's just related in some ways which were not known before. It's still related in some ways which were known before. I don't understand what precise claim the Baal Hatanya made before Einstein. Saying two things are related or similar is not an answer until you specify in what way they are such.

If anyone can verify that there actually are these editions, that would greatly improve the value of this question.

comment Calling female baby by name before official naming
@msh210 But there is no time where a naming occurs. Not then. Not later. Namings exists and are processes which don't have fixed points of occurrence (barring Sorities logic). Whatever occurs then, and whatever is occurring now, is not a naming.

comment About what were rabbis ahead of the times?
Does science agree to that, though? Could the world have been created with 6 time dimensions and 2 space dimensions? Or 4 space dimensions and 0 time dimensions? I don't know that science has an opinion on that. Special relativity AFAIK doesn't.

I don't think there is a time when the naming "occurs". see judaism.stackexchange.com/a/5743/759
