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)

comment Why did the Israelites build a golden calf in the desert?
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.

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.

Ah it's like my email saying I want a cake even though technically it is I that wants the cake and not that email. Cool. Why God of Bethel though?

comment Why do people say that Abraham and his family were idolaters at first?
Actually it's not thus said God the lord of Israel. It's thus said hashem, God of Israel. Which lead to another problem. Why God of universe is repeatedly called God of Israel? biblehub.com/text/joshua/24-2.htm

comment Can G-d ever take on a physical form?
actually that's the problem with hebrew language. If eloah/elohim can mean many things, then what is the word that's equivalent to "god" in english?

comment What else could have come out of Yiftach's house?
So he never intended to kill any one as offering? In fact, if it were his cat that greet him, he wouldn't sacrifice that. How much more he shouldn't if it were human?
