Topic Wiki

I'm going to try to make an index of the questions and answers here. I'm thinking of writing a short summary of the question/topic then writing the reply number, date, author (in case someone deletes a post it should still be findable). And writing locations of relevant replies on that question.

Question 1- Why did Hashem want to create the world? (Reply #1, 8/29/17, Starstruck)

See reply #78 8/31/17 churnbabychurn. #26 8/30/17 chbochur. #53 8/30/17 starstruck. #65 8/30/17 chbochur.

Question 2 - Why does beis din have to give punishments, can't Hashem give it? (#77 8/31/17 starstruck)

See reply #99 9/01/17 zh Cohen. #147 9/06/17 starstruck.

Question 3 - Why isn't there a sefeika d'yoma by Yom Kippur (but by Sukkos there is)? (#88 9/01/17 Dan)

See pages 7,8,9,10

Question 4 - Why is it נוח לו לאדם שלא נברא יותר משנברא if the whole purpose of the world is to be meitiv? ( #112 9/01/17 chbochur)

See #146 9/05/17 aygart and quoted conversations.

True. But what are the chances? How many frum  people did you hear of doing that?

I'm trying to think if there's another way to prove otherwise. I'm thinking along the lines of: assuming I was such a person surely people would know about me. Then maybe I can prove it from something that I know happened in a place where I wouldn't be let into.

But then you can say it's impossible to find a place where they know everyone. And I can always disguise myself. Or you can say I converted to some other religion in secret.

I don't know, I'm stuck. Maybe you can think of a different proof.

So I guess the only reason to believe me is because that's very very rare
How philosophical of you. Very apropos. Well done.

I think he's been lurking in the mushroom lounge in disguise, waiting for some innocent, unsuspecting person to wander in.
