comment Is there anyone today who only wears Rabenu Tam t'philin?
<This is because doing so would be saying that Rashi is wrong, which is not something anybody is on the level to do in this generation.> Not Rashi, but the Shulchan Aruch. Just like following the Rama isn't saying that the Shulchan Aruch is wrong. Though there may be communities which had a long-standing tradition like Rabbeinu Tam

comment How do we know that Elisha baal kenafayim had a clean body?
@Matt we're trying to prove that you need a guf naki for tefillin. It's like saying that we need a guf naki when running from jail, and bring a proof that a miracle happened with Bruria

comment Google says it is the Jewish Year 5774. The wiki says Judaism is 3000 years old. How is this discrepancy reconciled?
@CharlesKoppelman I think that she thinks that 5774 is from the exodus. So now would be 5774+2448=8222. It's just incorrect
