comment Hachnassas Sefer Torah at night
I don't understand the question. Is this about the mitzva of writing a sefer torah, permission to celebrate a hachnassas sefer torah, or somehow establishing a status of "hachnassas sefer torah" concurrent with the Torah's completion? Please clarify.

comment How do we know that God exists?
@ray My eyes weren't closed. My statement stands. You are welcome to try and find the most complex thing ever (the brain is probably better than the womb, as there is selection bias against miscarriages), and my statement will stand. Why would it not stand? What are you adding to my answer?

comment Zohar vs. Yerushalmi
I know that. But you said that Rav Yitzchak Yosef held to follow the Yerushalmi over the Zohar. So does he really hold that? (Incidentally, it's more like "Maran writes not to wear because the minhag was not to anyways" than "Maran writes not to wear and the minhag was not to anyways".)

comment Limited nature of products considered kosher
@Annelise Often in production the items in question may be mixed on purpose but not in order that bittul should apply (eg. non Jew makes a stew and mixes all the items on purpose but isn't planning for one to nullify the other). These rules can get complicated, however, when trying to evaluate what the intentions were in different situations.

Of course we're not communicating. You aren't listening. It isn't the kind of evidence he wanted. Can you accept that there are different kinds of evidence?

comment Mikvah - Non Jewish Husband
If a Jewish Niddah accidentally has relations with a Jewish man they both have to bring Korbanei Chattat. Clearly there is a prohibition on her as well.

Yes. Is the kid a convert himself or not (NM to marry a Kohein). This is straight up shulchan aruch YD 269:9.

You still wouldn't know if the kid was conceived before or after conversion...

I'm just going to point out that this is purely a theoretical question. She would be prohibited to marry a Jew for 3 months in order to distinguish paternity
