Torah and Jewish Idea / Re: The Divine Code Daily Dose

A person should always honor G-d's Name, in any language. When one does mention His Name, one should think about the reason and purpose for mentioning it, in order that it not be mentioned in vain (the Divine Code by Rabbi Moshe Weiner, Ask Noah International, 2011, p 271).

Likewise, regarding stores that provide plastic or paper bags at the check-out line for their customers' purchases: if in the eyes of the society, one such bag is not considered to have any monetary value, then the owner would surely not be concerned if just one bag were taken without permission. Nevertheless, it is forbidden to take even one shopping bag without the permission of the owner, for if many people would come along and each one would take one bag without making any purchase, the owner would suffer monetary loss, and this certainly matters to him.

It is not sufficient to ask permission from a store employee who is not authorized to decide on behalf of the owner. If one does not get proper permission to take a bag, he can avoid theft by making a small purchase.

This is not comparable to the case of pulling off slivers of wood, since it is unlikely that more than one person would come and take slivers, and therefore the owner does not mind. But it is a usual occurrence for almost all of the customers to take a bag from the store for their purchases, causing an expense to the merchant, and surely the merchant would mind when people who are not buying merchandise from the store take the store's bags (the Divine Code by Rabbi Moshe Weiner, Ask Noah International, 2011, p 569-570).

What about sea lions? They can walk out of the water and seem like dogs. I saw one in an aquarium and seemed like a dog when it was out of the water.

Mammals that dwell both in the sea and on the land are considered as wild land mammals and are included in this prohibition (e.g. seals, sea otters and sea lions).

I know it doesn't apply to fish but I didn't know that reptiles and amphibians are in the same category as non-kosher fish. I guess it makes sense for amphibians since they live partially in the sea.

So what about whales? They are mammals and live in the sea. Does that make them Halachically fish? Are Noahides allowed to eat whales without killing them first?

Even large sea mammals (for example, whales, dolphins and the like), which are included in the Torah's category of fish-like animals, are therefore not included in the prohibition of eiver min ha'hai.

The Truth About Islam / Re: The Noahide Case Against Islam

Exactly, there are 2 powers in the universe in the mind of muslims, Hashem and Satan. You don't need a son or a mother or a cousin to worship an idol. This is a small point however, a much more pronounced limitation to the power of the fake muslim idol is the fact that he needs to occupy a physical location and physically torture people.


So basically they're like Zoroastrians except that the good one is Hashem based on the Bible while Zoroastrianism has two false gods.

That is a very good point. "Satan" is the name of a prosecuting angel in the Heavenly Court. Yet some say that he became an independent ruler over a realm of eternal damnation, and that he acts in opposition to G-d's will - i.e., that he is a separate god. This idolatrous concept is not even a belief in an intermediary, since it claims that Satan is not under G-d's control.

So it only applies for birds and mammals?

Yes, the prohibition against eating flesh taken from a living animal applies only to domesticated mammals, wild mammals and birds. These are all the animals for which there is a Torah Law distinction between their flesh and their blood. The kosher species status is of no consequence whatsoever to this prohibition.

I will add that G-d also did not grant permission to eat human flesh, whether or not it would be removed while the person was alive. These four categories of living beings are represented by the four faces of the hayot angels of the divine chariot: the faces of the ox, lion, eagle and human. Since these angels are elevated to the highest levels of the heavens, we can speculate that G-d gives an extra honor to their reflections in the physical world through the Torah's universal restrictions on eiver min ha'hai and cannibalism.
