comment Besides Cyrus, is there any other human explicitly declared as Mosiach in tanach?
So the word mosiach show up a lot of time on tanach. It's not really special isn't it?

comment Is Sex Outside Marriage Still a Sin After the Invention of Paternity Tests?
Where in the torah Hashem ever said, thou shall get married first before having heterosexual intercouse with a girl? Even most kings have concubines

comment Anyone who says these people sinned is mistaken. For real?
Okay it seems that each case should merit it's own questions. I mean, Ruben is not sinning by having sex with his fathers' concubine because... let me guess, she is a concubine and not a wife. Am I correct here? Not sure about the others though. It seems that all sons of Jacob got inheritance irrelevant of whether they're the son of concubines or wife. So it seems that having sex with a concubine have the same problem with adultery.

Whether batsheba is uriah wife or not, she was definitely not David's wife. So how's that for sex outside marriage prohibition?

comment Why did God do nothing against the Romans that desecrated the Temple?
I mean to say that roman empire doesn't exist anymore is like saying western civilization doesn't exist. ALL of us are roman in a sense that the WHOLE world is westernized. In Israel, polygamy is prohibited right? Where did that tradition comes from? Roman (or greek). Jews and pretty much the whole world are following roman codes way more than torah. In fact, the muslims are probably the one whose customs (child marriage, polygamy, constant warfare) are closer to torah than say, the jews now. The rome empire is gone. But rome civilization, now known as western civilization survives very well.

comment Did what David do to Batsheba and Uriah technically legal (not sin?)
Okay one more problem. You said David didn't sin because Batsheba is not technically married at that time. Yet, Batsheba is not David's wife. I thought sex outside marriage is sin. Yet David have sex with someone that's obviously not his wife and have far more problems than that. And that's okay?

comment Is practicing Yoga against Torah?
Oh really. And what about Abraham prostating in front of 3 men in Mamre? Is that avodah zarah? I mean those 3 men are just men right? Yet Abraham were literally kissing the ground they walk on.

comment Can Jews eat hunted animals?
Avos cannot kept the torah if they didn't know what the torah is. If they know, would Jacob be sad when Joseph is gone? It's in the torah. Would they rewrite the whole Torah as commanded on Torah? Also Jacob marry leah and rachel, sisters, which is against the commandment of Torah (though sexy nevertheless)

There is a way to find out if that golem story is true or not. Why not try it again?

comment Can a prophet add to or change the Torah?
What about God commandment to build beith hamikash in Jerusalem? Or what about God's commandment to the niniveh to do tesuvah? All those are done after the torah.

comment So who is this “angel of the Lord” that call himself “the God of bethel”?
And it's okay to worship that shekinah hashem even though it's not really hashem anyway because well, ... it's a special creature...

And shekinah hashem is not hashem? It's created being just like others?

So I guess Hashem sometimes operate "avatars" like in the movie avatars and those puppets have forms. So hashem has no form. But his puppets/malaks/avatars can have. So ezekiel saw some guy sitting on a throne. That's hashem's angel too. Because Hashem has no form and hence can't possibly look like some guy sitting on athrone.

comment So who is this “angel of the Lord” that call himself “the God of bethel”?
This answer raises even more question. If this guy is hashem, why he has a human form and holding a sword (instead of at least Uzi or magic wand or nothing). Since when Hashem needs weapon? If this guy is not hashem why did Josua bow to him? I thought you should only bow to Hashem.

So that boy Malak in the new Moses movie could be a good interpretation right? This question is inspired by that movie.
