comment Woman with 2 wombs in regards to pidyon haben
@DoubleAA, It certainly does sound like two cervices. Also, from the ways he says "צריך לבדוק" makes it sound like it's something that's not so easy to see externally, which I would imagine two vaginae would be, though I'm not so sure.

comment Do religious Jews generally believe the serpent of Gan Eden was Satan?
@user3949142, What is your point? We can argue forever about what the Rambam himself did or did not believe, but the fact remains that Moreh Nevuchim is an authoritative source, and the fact that the Rambam included this in this book means that he deemed it acceptable, regardless of whether he secretly did not believe it.

comment Unusual pronunciation of “Mol” in Devarim 1:1
@DanF, You're welcome. Mazuz's writings are not available online and, as far as I know, difficult to find outside of Israel.

comment When Tana“ch uses the phrase ”until today" what does it mean?
II Kings 17:22-23: וַיֵּלְכוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּכָל-חַטֹּאות יָרָבְעָם אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה לֹא-סָרוּ מִמֶּנָּה. עַד אֲשֶׁר-הֵסִיר יְהוָה אֶת-יִשְׂרָאֵל מֵעַל פָּנָיו כַּאֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר בְּיַד כָּל-עֲבָדָיו הַנְּבִיאִים וַיִּגֶל יִשְׂרָאֵל מֵעַל אַדְמָתוֹ אַשּׁוּרָה עַד הַיּוֹם הַזֶּה

comment Belief that a dead man will be the Messiah - Kfira?
@Yishai, Including the Abarbanel who believed that Moshiach would come from the dead?. This is untrue; Abarbanel believed no such thing necessarily. Please see Ch. 5 of Gil Student's book linked to above for clarification.
