@GershonGold I would guess Shalom is asking about a case where there is no such exclusion

comment Why did Gechazi go first?
The question is not (I think), why did Gechazi fail, but rather why he was even sent in the first place.

@jake. Also, see Shmuel Brills answer, and the link there, as well as his comment.

@jake, the previous comment is also for you, but I forgot to add the reference. Looked here for an article that addresses the rock question specifically.

comment Reconciling the evidence for the Uncertainty Principle with belief in an omniscient G-d
Unfortunately, I have been unable to locate some good primary sources on this topic. I will continue to try to find some, though. This idea is very common within chassidus, and I would imagine, kabbalah as well. Here's an interesting secondary source, that goes even further than what I've said.

@jake. I may not have a chance to respond for a bit bc of limited access to internet. I will try to so some research in seforim and on my mobile. rest assured that this is not my own sevara, and is well sourced, mostly in chassidus if I'm not mistaken. You're right though, this doesn't fit so well with classical chakirah.

comment What's the deal with all the washings?
To add to the confusion, I'm aware that there are certain chassidic families who wash four times.

jake. Just to make sure I'm understanding him properly, he's saying that Yitzchak thought it was a show? It was all to be strictly symbolical?

Isaac, at 37, couldn't figure it out on the way? Plus, he couldn't have overpowered (not that he would) his 137-year-old father? Whew, that's an interesting Abarbanel.
