comment History of the two versions of the Ritva
If anyone can verify that there actually are these editions, that would greatly improve the value of this question.

comment Calling female baby by name before official naming
@msh210 But there is no time where a naming occurs. Not then. Not later. Namings exists and are processes which don't have fixed points of occurrence (barring Sorities logic). Whatever occurs then, and whatever is occurring now, is not a naming.

comment About what were rabbis ahead of the times?
Does science agree to that, though? Could the world have been created with 6 time dimensions and 2 space dimensions? Or 4 space dimensions and 0 time dimensions? I don't know that science has an opinion on that. Special relativity AFAIK doesn't.

I don't think there is a time when the naming "occurs". see judaism.stackexchange.com/a/5743/759

comment About what were rabbis ahead of the times?
It means that they have certain properties in common and certain different (as in all analogies). Frankly I don't know what בחינה א' means either. Does it mean that they are both part of a 4D manifold? Is that what בחינה means?

Space and time still had been grouped together before special relativity, eg. as forms of basic intuition in The Critique of Pure Reason.

Of course I could, so long as "well south" is not construed to by definition exclude that possibility.

Isn't Rav Ashi in that same chain? He had doubts and questions...

Do you have any evidence one may lechatchila push off Kiddush or Havdalla until morning?

comment The Effect of an 18- or 6-Hour Day
Sunrise and Sunset do not guarantee Alos and Tzeis happen, even if you (for some strange reason) assume that 72 minutes is "fixed". Consider if the "night" lasts for 25 minutes.

comment Would whole brain emulation be compatible with Judaism?
@Yoni I don't know why it doesn't make sense. If I assert -(p&q) then asserting q implies -p (the falsification of p).
