R' Menachem Mendel Kasher in an article in the periodical Sinai refutes many of [Gershom] Scholem's points (used to argue that Zohar was authored by R. Moshe De Leon). He writes:
Many statements in the works of the Rishonim refer to Medrashim that we are not aware of. He writes that these are in fact references to the Zohar. This ...
A quick Google shows that this person likely took the quote from this site here (I'm sorry to have linked to it).
It seems that this person likely didn't understand what he was reading. The topics are divided into sections labeled with Roman numerals under which different "proof texts" are brought.
On the linked page it says:

There is actually only one quote here, and it is taken directly from The Talmud Unmasked: The Secret Rabbinical Teachings Concerning Christians, which was originally written in Latin (with accompanying passages in Hebrew/Aramaic) by Reverend I.B. Pranaitis. The quote is real, as are all of the quotes within his tract, and is from the Zohar. The supposed ...
Apparently it is quoted by one of the Chasam Sofer's students, Rabbi Eliezer Lipman Naizatts, in his sefer Mei Menuchot, page 43a, as having been said by the Chasam Sofer in front of many of his students.
Follow the link:
Yes at first glance they are in conflict. Sefer Yosef Tehilos 42:9 (Chida) reconciles this with the explanation that David did not sleep and this the nights counted towards the 140 years.
יומם יצוה ה׳ חסדו ובלילה שירה עמי תפלה לאל חיי — אפשר במ״ש רז״ל, דאדם הראשון נתן לו ע׳ שנה לדוד הע״ה. ובזהר הקדוש אמר דאברהם אע״ה ויעקב אע״ה ויוסף הצדיק ע״ה נתנו לו ע׳ שנה ...
First of all, the question of authorship doesn't necessarily affect the Zohar's importance in halakha; I'm not sure why you think that this it would "obviously affect the way of poskining". The question of how Kabbalah affects Halacha is not a simple one, and does not really depend on the Zohar's authorship, because even if it were written by a ...
This is from the Zohar on Vayikra (10b):
תא חזי קב"ה אקרי שלום הוא שלום ושמיה שלום ואתקשר כלא בשלום
Come and see: The Holy One Blessed be He is called "Shalom" ("Peace"). He is peace, and his name is Peace, and everything is bound in peace.
אשכחיה רבי יוסי לאליהו א"ל כתיב אעשה לו עזר במה אשה עוזרתו לאדם א"ל אדם מביא חיטין חיטין כוסס פשתן פשתן לובש לא נמצאת מאירה עיניו ומעמידתו על רגליו
Rebbi Yosi found Eliyahu. He said to him "it is written 'I shall make for him a helper' - in what way does she help man?" He responded "A man brings [home] wheat -does he ...
The Holy Zohar is formatted as a commentary on the 5 books of Moses.
The Tikunim is formatted a series of commentaries on the first word in the Torah (Bereshis).
The Zohar Hadash is additional teachings, and formatted as a commentary on the 5 books of Moses, as well as on the megillos etc.

It's hinted to in the Zohar in VaYechi - search for the words יָשִׁית יָדוֹ
The second instance on that page says:
יָשִׁית יָדוֹ עַל עֵינֶיךָ. מַאי קָא מַיְירֵי. אָמַר רִבִּי יֵיסָא, בְּגִין יְקָרָא דְיַעֲקֹב, וּלְאִתְבַּשְּׂרָא דְּהָא יוֹסֵף קַיָּים, וְיִשְׁתַּכַּח עֲלֵיהּ בְּמִיתָתֵיהּ.
Meaning that Yosef will be present when you die.

“In the future, the sons of Yishmael will return to the Holy Land when it was vacant from inhabitants for much time, and they will prevent Yisrael from returning to their land until that merit of the sons of Yishmael expires. At a certain time, the sons of Yishmael will be roused to wage brazen battles in the world. The sons of Edom will gather together and ...
Perhaps there was more than one tanna named Pinhas ben Yair, This was spoken of in Shaar HaGilGulim by Rav Chaim Vital.
To me though, its not clear if Rav Pinchas ben Yair was niftar or not in the Idra. Nevertheless, Rav Chaim seems to assume he was.
Chabad has a partial translation online. it includes the parts that are included in hok l'yisrael. The translation is by Rabbi Rahmiel-Hayyim Drizin. I don't know if that will include what you're looking for. There's also a partial translation from 1904 online at sacred-texts. The Kabbalah Education and Research center has one, but I'm not sure if it's ...
The argument about the "authenticity" of the Zohar is usually part of a broader argument against the validity of kabbala. The teachings of Kabbala, as presented in the Zohar and related works, are generally accepted as an intrinsic part of Jewish tradition by the broad mainstream of Jewish tradition. As such it has had a profound impact on Jewish thought, as ...
Predictions are a Funny thing, especially when you allow a given year like 1840 to span a large amount of time.
The early half of the 1800s was a very "active" period in Jewish history, with many things greatly affecting Jewish life today.
During the era, was the formation of Modern Zionism. With the Students of the Vilna Gaon moving to Israel in the 1860s ...
The way I was taught - by my high school Rebbe - it means that Hashem looked into the Torah and saw what was needed in order to fulfill the Torah and Mitzvot - and created a world that would enable one to do so.
E.g.: He saw he Mitzvah of honouring parents, so he created us with parents.
He saw that there is a need for Kosher and non-Kosher animals - and ...
The authorship of the Sefer Orchos Tzaddikim has been under dispute for many years
as well as the date of the original printing. Some claim it was written in 1430 or as late as 1581
Some have attributed it to Rabbeinu Yonah who died in 1246
Some have attributed it to Yom-Tov Lipmann-Muhlhausen
There is even speculation that it was written by a woman as it ...
As was mentioned in a comment, "Targum Yonatan/Yonasan" (aka "Pseudo-Jonathan") is of "disputed" authorship. "Disputed", however, may be the wrong word; it would be more correct to say that it is of "often mistaken, and in fact unknown, authorship".
Chabura-Net lists major Halachic works and authors by era. (Eg. and eg.) According to the site, sections of ...
Perhaps surprisingly, this is discussed in Reshimot Shiurim of Rav Soloveitchik to Berakhot 34a. He writes that the "hidden light" is the light of knowledge that is found in the Torah and will be fully expressed in the future epoch. Particularly, it refers to an understanding of the underlying philosophy of Halakha.

Rav Daniel Glatstein last night gave a shiur on Hoshana Rabbah (Ushpizin of Dovid HaMelech), and addressed this question. You can watch it here; it starts at 19:45. He brought three explanations:
Ohr HaChamah Bereishis end of p. 168a quotes Rav Avraham Galante (16th century Italian kabbalist), who says that Adam intended to give Dovid 70 years. However, ...
It seems like this could be comparable to the Braisa that mentions the methodology of Shimon HaAmsuni (can be found in Pesachim 22b, among other places):
כדתניא שמעון העמסוני ואמרי לה נחמיה העמסוני היה דורש כל אתים שבתורה
כיון שהגיע לאת ה׳ אלהיך תירא פירש אמרו לו תלמידיו רבי כל אתים שדרשת מה
תהא עליהן אמר להם כשם שקבלתי שכר על הדרישה כך אני מקבל שכר ...
Rabbi Yiḥyah Qafiḥ, his grandson, Rabbi Yossef Qafiḥ.
The work for which Rabbi Qafiḥ is most well known is Milḥamot HaShem
(Wars of the Lord, which takes the same name as earlier books) and
which he began writing in 1914. In it he argues that the Zohar is not
authentic and that attributing its authorship to the Tannaitic sage
