comment Why Eliyah Lament destruction of high places Altar?
That doesn't explain 1 Kings 19:10 and 14. Ironically, even foreign ambassador would say to Hezekiah, something along "Why would Hashem help you? You destroyed his altars"

comment Is weed kosher?
halal seems to mean clean. I thought kosher means clean too. Hmmmm... I do not know for sure actually. There is nothing in the bible that says thou shall not smoke weed.

comment Is weed kosher?
Precisely. So there is some significant distinction between "allowed" and "kosher". Not simply because something is kosher means it's allowed or via versa.

comment Is weed kosher?
Is beef kosher? Yes. Are you allowed to eat raw beefs or eat too much of it? Somebody will say it's against holiness of body bla bla bla bla. It's different things. Jews sound a lot like christians here. When something is politically incorrect somebody will come with a reason to say it's not allowed. So I asked a simpler question. Is it kosher?

I think most of the answer that doesn't address the kosher status of marijuana. It tries to say no you can't eat that using other reasoning.

I am asking whether it's kosher. Kosher and allowed may be different things. For example, the muslim consider pork to be halal if it's for medicine.

comment Why was King Shaul commanded to kill all the animals of Amalek?
Ironically, none of us would remember who the amalek is if not because the bible telling people to wipe out their memory. If not because of the bible, we would remember amalek like we remember one tribe in papua nugini. Not at all. Another question?

comment Why didn't Shaul kill Agag?
or perhaps the whole book of Samuel is David's dynasty propaganda. So Saul, with a few mistakes, is "despised" by Yahweh. While any David's descendants, irrelevant of behavior, is favored by Yahweh. Looks like it didn't last forever though. I don't see any David's descendants holding dynastic rule in Israel right now. What? One of them eat cheeseburger?

comment How come chofni and phineas sin or not sinning?
What is kaparah? What were the women actually do? Did ancient jewish religion involve temples prostitute? Might be hard to believe because christianity that follows are very puritan. But we have women attending the temples and it has to be women, with mirrors and now somebody is cohabiting with them?

comment Why did God do nothing against the Romans that desecrated the Temple?
I wouldn't repeat the phrase here but blaspheming God and "damning" him seems to be soooooooo popular in western civilization that it's a standard curse words. I hate this **** chair. I messed up with that ***** car.

comment If Jews shouldn't marry non-Jews, why did prominent Jewish leaders do so in the bible?
Oh I see. Those are not mitzvah. Those are fences outside mitzvah. So in a sense, some "authority figure" can add rules. A king may extend sabbath to include friday and sunday and anyone breathing there will be stoned to death (on monday), for example. I mean, won't happen. But technically they can.

comment If Jews shouldn't marry non-Jews, why did prominent Jewish leaders do so in the bible?
In one hand, I've heard that no more mitzvah after torah. On the other hand, after Ezra, tada, no more intermarriage. Then now, 50% of jews outside israel intermarry. I mean you don't think nothing is to explain? Doesn't see anything strange?
