comment Why do Jews look before crossing streets?
@Clint You wrote "Although you are correct..." which implies that you believe his opinion to be that be valid to Judaism. So I asked what you (with emphasis) meant by that. That being said, I'm sure you agree that it's a good thing to challenge flawed premises?

comment Why do Jews look before crossing streets?
@Clint, Do you have any source for this? It really doesn't fit with any normative Jewish theology that I've heard of. Also, what do you mean by "everything is predestined?" Surely there is free choice, and effective prayer, etc.?

comment SE Challenge: Halachot in which rulings range from permissible to Torah violation?
And of course, everything is made up of multiple molecules, atoms, sub-atomic particles... I do not know, though I could make several educated guesses as to where the "composite" line is drawn. Recognizability, naming, visibility, etc., are all used in halacha for making similar distinctions. But these are only guesses, and this is not really meant to be a comprehensive explanation of that sugya nor to teach practical halacha. The first link provides multiple related sources for those who are interested in learning more.
