Re: Torah and science

Hi Aryeh,

Somebody once said, "God spends three hours a day studying the Talmud." It is a man made document and therefore has restrictions, as do the commentaries. So, how about viewing scientifically false opinions as honest attempts to understand the world based on information available at the time?

Our scientific knowledge increases by the day whereas human nature seems to be reasonably constant. Assuming the nature of God is constant too then a scientifically false description of the universe does not necessarily invalidate any spiritual message beneath the words about humans or their relationship with God.
