comment Why didn't the Kohanim wear Tzizis?
I was asking specifically about during their service, since the clothing they must wear is specified and does not include tzizis. However I wouldn't delete your answer, it definitely adds important information to the topic.

comment Did Akeidat Yitzchak dedicate Yitzchak and his future offspring to Hashem?
Sometimes Korban-animals can be sold for money which is donated instead. Similarly, Eisav sold his birthright to Yaakov.

I was afraid of that. I rewrote this a few times, but I'm not sure how to ask it. I guess I'm asking if anyone knows of a source that makes this comparison, or if what I'm saying doesn't make sense.

comment Bereishit vs. science
... 2.4ga The sun output visibly increases, and the atmospheric composition changed to be oxygen rich, from photosynthesis. It's hypothesized that until this point, the earth was completely covered in clouds.The natural evolution of the Sun made it progressively more luminous during the Archaean and Proterozoic eons; the Sun's luminosity increases 6% every billion years. As a result, the Earth began to receive more heat from the Sun in the Proterozoic eon.^ )

(Also on Rakea, from my notes on passukim 14-17: the Ibn Ezra says that in passuk 15 the luminaries became visible in the sky. -- Theoretical models of the Sun's development suggest that 3.8 to 2.5 billion years ago, during the Archean period, the Sun was only about 75% as bright as it is today.^

Been a while since I did this so I'll have to look up the source, but I think it's Rambam who says that the "Rakea-Hashamayim" in passuk 14-17, is distinct from "Rakea" in earlier passukim. He says this because the "Rakea" in passuk 7 is re-named "Shamayim" in passuk 8.

comment Receiving money for a day's work, considering it to cover a debt?
I don't know if this has any impact, but does Shimon owe Reuvan money for work Reuvan did previously, or did Reuvan loan the money to Shimon?

comment Why is the word “tzvi” ambiguous?
It also means "Glory".
