comment Do we have any proof (Biblical or other Judaic) that current-day Arabs have lineage from Yishma'el?
Especially after Sancheiriv did his population transfers

comment Why are large Jewish communities not picking up and moving to Israel?
@Daniel not at all. It's a Halachic question.

comment About what were rabbis ahead of the times?
<And for my favorite, which doesn't really count as preceding modern science, but is cool anyways, Tehillim 148:3 "Praise Him, sun and moon; praise Him, all stars of light. ג. הַלְלוּהוּ שֶׁמֶשׁ וְיָרֵחַ הַלְלוּהוּ כָּל כּוֹכְבֵי אוֹר:" Isn't "stars of light" redundant?? NO! there must also be stars of darkness, i.e., black holes!> Hava Amina of the Gemara in Pesachim (first daf or two), but no. It's just to show that starlight is considered light regarding Shevuot

comment Derech Halimud in Mir Yeshiva
@DannySchoemann I don't understand what's unclear. Is it just a big Beis Medrash were people learn what they want? That sounds like an answer!

I think that sources would make this answer useful. As it is now it's just rumor

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

Unsourced: I heard that only the second part is the problem (I don't like this), not the first

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
