@Ze'evFelsen Moreover, I'd probably shave and shower before going to meet him. Must I do that 3 times a day??

comment Why isn't the Kabbalistic doctrine of Sefirot considered Shittuf if the Christian Trinity is?
I have reformulated the question per avi's observation that the question should seek distinctions between the Kabbalistic understanding of Sefirot vis-a-vis the unity of God, and Jews' understanding of the Trinity vis-a-vis the unity of God. The question now seems on topic to me. If the OP does not reject my edits, I move that the question be reopened. If the community decides that it is now a dupe of this question's newer incarnation, I recommend merging those answers hither.

How do they know certain companies usually use Shaatnez if not for rov/chazaka?

@epicentre I find that quite surprising. It doesn't count as anything? Msh210: hence my edits.

comment Did God destroy Amalek in King David's time, like Rashi seems to say?
What is the defined time period for the command to lean on the head of the blasphemer before stoning him? Do you have a source that this is the meaning of לדורות? How then do you understand the point of the mitzva to kill the Amalekites if none of them exist or will ever exist again?

comment Do a mitzva for mashiach?
How does this Mishna support the claim? It says that you have to remember the Exodus nowadays and in the days of Mashiach.

Either: a) it is not one of the 613 Mitzvot but rather a temporary mitzva like various one time commands in the desert. b) it is only possible to fully destroy them in some qualitatively different future era (possibly Yemot HaMashiach) AND such a delay qualifies as a Mitzva which applies LeDorot and can be counted according to Rambam. c) it is impossible to complete the task but that shouldn't keep us from trying.

Why does it not detract from its status as a commandment? Rambam's third Shoresh is not to count Mitzvot which don't apply for eternity.

comment From where do we learn that strangulation is the default execution method?
@Alex Excellent question! The Bavli asks that and answers that since we know the daughter of a Kohein who committed adultery gets burned (Lev 21), the only method left for the unspecified death is strangulation. I left that detail of the derivation out of my answer for brevity.

comment What is the purpose of the plastic casing on the shel yad?
I can't 'merge' a picture, but you can always [suggest an] edit [to] the other post to improve it an clarify what it is talking about. Such an edit would be beneficial IMO.
