Overhaul of Sources on Chazal and Science

As the title of this post indicates, I have made major changes to my post entitled Sources Indicating That Chazal Did Not Possess Perfect Scientific Knowledge, which can be accessed by clicking on the link provided.

Your article is highly impressive with a wide variety of sources. A couple of requests.

a) could you please go into more details with regard to your interview with R' Shmuel Kamenetsky, R Eliezer Ben Porat, etc,

b) any possibiliy of chaning your colour scheme. The white on black background is quite difficult on the eyes

Keep up the good work

Re. the interviews: in all cases, the rabbi in question made it very clear that (a) the opinion of Rabbeinu Avraham ben Harambam is a legitimate one for someone to hold in our day and age, and (b) he (the rabbi) himself considers it to be most probably correct.

Re. the colours: I'll se what I can do.

Thanks for the feedback.

If you are interested, Rabbi Dov Linzer gave a lecture today on Science and Halakhah.
