  Torah and science

Posted by Aryeh Moshe on 2002/01/09 02:03:09 US/Mountain

Aren't there places in the Gemarah and the Torah's commentators where they seem to contradict science? How should a Jew view these opinions that seem scientificly false? (Can you please give examples of these opinions? I think some are that the Rambam describes stars in a false manner. Also the Gemarah, maybe Rashi, has a discussion on if the earth revolves around the sun or vise-versa...)
