comment Why is Adar 1 30 days long?
If Adar 1 is 30 days long, why isn't Adar 2 also 30 days long?

comment Why is Adar 1 30 days long?
It could have been compensated for in other ways (eg. 30 Cheshvan or even some other month, or even adding an extra month every fourth cycle). Plus this doesn't deal with the Mishna cited by the OP.

comment How was kashrut affected by Science?
Sometimes. Depends on the food. I see no reason why their decisions are binding. There are foods that are certified which I won't eat and foods which wouldn't be certified which I will eat. Just because there is a monopoly in the supply doesn't create a "minhag" which precludes other possibilities.

comment In a leap year, is the extra month Adar I or Adar II?
Maybe in leap years, Purim is celebrated in a different month.

You did not infer correctly nor is your statement about shaatnez entirely accurate

comment How did Talmudic rabbis know about others' personal matters
Perhaps they aren't literally true? Then you don't need to know how they knew it.

comment If we lost smicha, isn't our mesora broken?
Most Jews nowadays are probably Sefardim.

Does the flag have four corners? What material is it made of?

comment Can you steal someone's aveirah item?
She might have stolen them to worship them. We know there was idol worship in Yaakov's camp (Gen 35:2)

:( then you are mixing up different connotations of mesorah.

comment If we lost smicha, isn't our mesora broken?
I think you are mistaken. Sefardim (at least some) will eat any bird based on Simanei Taharah alone.

comment Must Mashiach have Jewish ancestry, or just Davidic?
The question was about Davidic ancestry not Judean ancestry. Plus your initial paragraph could use some better sourcing, particularly if you want to claim it is a universally held position.

Whoa whoa whoa. Why aren't Sefardim Jews? Or are they not keeping kosher?

comment If we lost smicha, isn't our mesora broken?
Who's "we" that don't eat birds that are probably kosher unless there is a mesorah that they are eaten?

I don't understand why certain major kashrut organizations define "kashrut".
