comment Why are there eight days of Chanukah if there were only seven miracles?
Hi Aaron! I'm glad to see you've been contributing to Mi Yodeya. Please note our FAQ which states (in part): If you want to quote material from another website or resource, please provide a reference, preferably a link, to the original material and quote selectively but veer more toward summarizing.

comment If the Oral Torah is Divine, why are there arguments?
@ba So that includes the vast, vast majority of halacha! (Interesting BTW that he doesn't exclude Gezera Shava.)

comment How many prophets were there and who were they?
@sabertabatabaeeyazdi The number of Jews counted in the census immediately following the Exodus (recorded in Numbers 2:32) is 603550, so twice that is 1207100.

Rav Feinstein seems to give my argument (it's 'her' law) in his teshuva, cited in Shalom's answer.

comment Source for Dubno Maggid's rebuke of the Vilna Gaon?
Thank you for remembering to add a translation! Do you have a date, by any chance, on the year it was first published (TTBOYK)?

comment How many prophets were there and who were they?
@AaronLevian Thanks. Oded and Chanani certainly make sense as they are called a Navi in the pesukim in Divrei Hayamim (2:15:8 and 2:28:9 as well as 2:16:7 respectively).

comment Nittle Nacht Meaning
Shouldn't everyone observe Nittle Nacht practices on the evening before any sect of Christianity's date for Christmas? It's not like we should be paskining which of them is right.
