comment Should or may a non-Jew light candles at Shabbat service?
Hi Dr. Mayer! I think you should speak to a rabbi instead of some random people on the internet. What do we really know, anyway?

comment Israel Am v.s. Goy
In my estimation the scholars of traditional Judaism more frequently date it to an earlier period than that. In any event, this answer is complete hand-waving. I don't disagree that meanings of words can shift over time, but you'd have to track it to show any meaningful result.

comment Trying to understand Kol Hanearim
Do you have any reason to suspect saying something someone else did is a Segulah for having similar amounts of progeny as they did? (Or some other reason for asserting that this is a bona fide Segulah?)

comment Is there any point where לשבת יצרה no longer applies?
@YEZ I think the last paragraph does answer the question. The OP asserts that there is no such condition as the one you propose in your question. (I don't know the OP so his assertion isn't worth all that much to me.)

@GershonGold So, according to this source, if your rabbi tells you not to say it even though your parents tell you you can say it, what should you do?

comment How do we learn “Taamei HaMitzvos”?
"rationalistic" I'm not sure what you mean by this. Are you contrasting to "Kabbalistic"? If so then I'm confused because plenty of "Kabbalistic" reasons contradict Halacha too.
