comment Artificial non Kosher food
@onicaCellio On the other hand, transferring taste from pork to beef makes the beef prohibited.

comment Spilling wine for Detzach, Adash, Be'Achav
Is 1590 the earliest instance of such a note in extant haggadot?

comment Wine touched by non-Jews
Is this uniformly accepted by Kabbalists? What sources is this practice based on (eg. Zohar, Ari etc.)?

comment Why aren't Yemenites an ed echad on locusts?
See this article which claims that R Chaim ibn Attar was disolusioned with the local locust population because they didn't match a description of kosher locusts written by Rashi (who had probably never seen such a locust in his life) which doesn't match any existing locust.

comment What happened to insects during the flood?
@Alex Ok, but Wikipedia also says that louse eggs are 0.8 mm in size, which is equally visible with the naked eye.

comment Witness signing on a get “ben ish ploni”
It seems to me like you are asking how this case works but regular cases do. If so, the question is unsupported in describing their differences. If you mean to ask something else, feel free to edit the question to clarify.

comment Does demolishing idolatry require specific authority?
You didn't answer any of my questions, and so I still don't know what you are asking. (Also pork is a bad comparison as it is a prohibition not a positive injunction.)

So the criterion is the intent of the manufacturer?

comment Does demolishing idolatry require specific authority?
I don't understand what you are asking. Are you asking if Jews only need to destroy idols after being told to do so by someone else, eg. a Beit Din? Why would you think yes or no? Why was your original title "Is it a halachic requirement to demolish Idolatry"? Are you wondering about how this law interacts with secular laws which may prohibit such actions? What is the example of the Jesus idol coming to show?

@Alex Are flies' (or most insect's) eggs visible?

@HodofHod Do you have any insights on the above (since the OP is not around)?

comment Why is the idea of sefirot not shituf?
Oh, and I'm still wondering why you only mention Yesh m'Ayin for the part of Creation that comes after the creation of the Sephirot, which would seem to also have been Yesh m'Ayin. ||| Now that I reread your post, I wonder: how do you know Tefillah isn't the primary form of worship of the "Sephirot-gods"? I don't know of anyone who worships them any other way. Additionally, even if you don't get killed for it doesn't mean that such a mistaken belief wouldn't make one into a bonâ fide heretic.

@user1212 I don't see how that answer's my question, nor do I follow your (?) etymological/grammatical (?) distinction.

comment Does demolishing idolatry require specific authority?
@Ali I thought you were asking if there was such a command and which sources require it (eg. "Tanachial", Rabbinic, Talmud etc.).
