comment Does a transparent hair-covering fulfil the halacha?
I don't know how you know what the whole purpose of the covering (deorayta) is, nor how you know it isn't in the spirit of the law.

comment Are there any late-Achronim who wrote like a Rishon (or early-Acharon)?
It's not like anyone's going to write "I was careless in writing this", but we still just assume that not everyone is a perfect poet to write so precisely.

comment Was Intermarriage Permissible at the time of Tanakh?
@Shmuel That's novel. A straight read of the text of the Rambam (hehehe) would not imply that. Are you making it up?

comment Was Intermarriage Permissible at the time of Tanakh?
No. Presumably if they'd converted and they weren't worship pinging idols, they wouldn't be described as foreign. I don't know why you would make the presumption in your comment. It's not unreasonable to name-call someone who's sinning.

comment Was Intermarriage Permissible at the time of Tanakh?
@Shmuel I'm confused why you are quoting me the Rambam that Menachem linked to above... It can't be in response to my seeking where the Rambam address conversion in the verses, because your citations make no claims about the verses.

@Shmuel "Contrary to Rambam" Where does Rambam claim the verses do say anything about conversion?

comment Was Intermarriage Permissible at the time of Tanakh?
@Shmuel Right. So if they don't say anything, how could you know if it happened or not?

comment Was Intermarriage Permissible at the time of Tanakh?
If Halacha changed over time then we can have no way of ever proving prior circumstances. That's a problem for this question, but not necessarily for the position.
