comment Is there an obligation for men and women to sit separately at a simcha?
As with nearly all matters of modesty, communal norms play a large factor in determining what is appropriate in a given context.

comment Does it matter if one takes Torah stories literally/physically?
@lftfl I still don't understand your point, or know how you know what people did or didn't do 'back in the day'.

What does meaningfulness have to do with physical/literal/straightforward-ness? If something really happened, it may or may not be meaningful, and something meaningful may or may not have happened. I don't see the connection.

comment Does apocalyptic Judaism still exist?
@user613 You are right that it certainly would not be Rabbinic Judaism. If only we had a tag for such questions... (Please try and read the whole question in the future before wasting our time in the comments.)

comment Is a virgin birth possible according to rabbinic judaism? If the mother was betrothed, is the child a mamzer?
@msh210 You're right, of course, that this question is/was poor, but Christianity's claim could be reason to suspect such a source exists, eg. "Christian text X says Jews believe Y. Is this true?"

comment Does apocalyptic Judaism still exist?
@user613 It (presumably) reliably records the theology of its author. That's all that matters here. Not if that theology accords with your theology. You don't seem to understand this question at all. Nothing you've said has been constructive.

Miracles can happen. They usually don't. Science certainly indicates that without the introduction of sperm cells to the internal female reproductive tract, a pregnancy will not occur.

comment why do we eat 3 meals on shabbos?
People were off from work on Shabbat so they had time for lunch. (The two regular meals are breakfast and dinner, and in between you worked in the field all day.)
