Lchvode Rabbi Moderator:

You mentioned in the last post in the thread entitled "Lice and Spontaneous Generation,"

that many of those Refuos prescribed by the Gemara no longer work.

Would you please explain why.

Thank you.

Because nishtanu hativ'im. Meaning, the nature of the diseases changed and they are no longer the diseases that the cure was designed for.

One reason I saw in one of Rav Miller's sefarim is that medicines and such work because they are our histaldus. We do what we can and Hashem takes care of it. So back then, based on their knowledge, these cures were the histaldus they had, so it worked. Now that other things are known and believed, using old cures wouldn't be full histaldus, so they wouldn't work. We work with what we know.

Why- either the nature of the disease, or nature of the person. Boils down to the same idea in any case, but two diff things, isn't it?
amolam Posted - 26 May 2009 4:08
it sounded like u were saying that the diseases have changed as opposed to the nature of the makeup of the human body...

either or. could be either one. theyre both true.

if the nature of the disease or humans changed, why is that any different from evolution?

microevolution isa comletely different process, i think.

Nature changes - new virus strains are created that resist old remedies, for example - but nobody randomly develops new organs. That has no basis in the evidence whatsoever.
