Science in the Torah
MUST-WATCH: Water in Space with Rabbi Zamir Cohen
In this fascinating clip, Rabbi Zamir Cohen shows us once again how our sages knew about scientific phenomena that have just recently been discovered.
How Did the Kangaroo Reach Australia After the Flood?
How did it happen that there are animals unique to each geographical region? How could animals migrate between continents that are separated by oceans? Kabbalah has the answer.
Who Discovered Vaccines?
Louis Pasteur is famous for his discovery of curing different diseases through vaccination. What is less known is the source of Pasteur's knowledge on the subject.
Are Inanimate Objects Alive?
Matter is not what it appears to be. Modern science teaches us that the electrons which are constantly in motion even in inanimate objects are the essence of those objects. Does this have any parallel in the words of our sages? Apparently it does.
The Physiological Stages of the Monthly Cycle
The secret of the success of a Jewish marriage is to be found in the laws of Family Purity. But only recently have scientists discovered the other amazing benefits from adhering to these wise laws.
Does a Human Go Out of Existence When He Dies?
The Torah teaches us that there is life after death and even describes in detail what happens to the soul after a person's demise. Only recently modern science has come to similar conclusions regarding what happens to a person after his death.
The Mysterious Lives of Plants
Scientists are discovering amazing facts about plants- their ability to feel and sense what humans are doing around them. These facts are corroborated by Chazal who received this knowledge with the holy Torah.
Torah and Science - Astronomy: the heliosphere
Both the number of continents and the atmosphere around the sun arouse questions on the Torah's account as opposed to scientific observation. However, modern scientific research has reached exactly the same conclusions as the Torah… given 3300 years ago.
Torah and science - Astronomy: the moon’s renewal
In this section we demonstrate how the latest knowledge of astronomy coincides perfectly with that which our Rabbis taught over 2000 years ago, even though this knowledge was not known to the general world at that time. It is clear that they received this knowledge from the Creator of the World in his holy Torah.
Familiarity With EVERY Kind of Animal in the World!!
The Torah delineates four creatures which have just one sign of purity- chewing the cud without having cloven feet. This implies that only these four creatures have this sign and not others. But if the Torah were written by anyone besides the Creator of the World, how could they know that in all the world there are no other creatures with similar attributes?
Does the Fetus Sense and Hear What is Happening Outside?
Only recently scientists discovered that a fetus senses what goes on in the world, but Chazal knew about this many years ago already.
Knowledge of bee honey contents in the torah
Just as the camel eats grass and turns it into milk after it was processed in the camel’s body, and this milk is forbidden because “whatever comes from the impure — is impure”, so we would expect that honey would be forbidden because bees are forbidden to be eaten!?
Knowledge of fish and marine creatures in the torah
The Giver of the Torah reveals another law of nature which He created: every fish, or any other water creature, that has scales, inevitably will have fins. But fins do not necessarily come with scales
The Torah's familiarity with EVERY animal in the world
The Torah reveals one of the secrets of nature. Among the thousands of species of domesti-cated and wild animals in the world, there are only 4 kinds of animals which either chew their cud or have split hooves, but not both together
Genetics and our sages - Rabbi Zamir Cohen
Did You Know, That recently discovered Laws of Genetics were Known and Practiced Thousands of Years ago by our Sages?
Genetics and the Bible - Rabbi Zamir Cohen
Is it possible that the two most revolutionary laws in genetics discovered in recent generations – Mendel’s Laws of Inheritance and the Law of Heterosis – appear in the Torah, given more than 3300 years ago?
Surgical Cleanliness in the Talmud - Rabbi Zamir Cohen
The Talmud (Baba Metzia 83b) describes an operation performed on Rabbi Elazar, the son of Rabbi Shimon ben Yochai: “He was given a sleeping draught, taken into a marble chamber and had his abdomen opened…” 2000 Years Ago
Pasteurization in the Talmud
“R. Yochanan said: [Drink] a cupful of witchcraft, but not a cupful of tepid water.” How Did Rabbi Yochanan Know about Pasteurization 2000 Years ago?
Near Death Experience in the Talmud
The Talmud states; for three days after burial, it is still possible for a person to return to life! What does Modern day Science have to to say about that?
The Ideal Amount of Sleep - Rabbi Zamir Cohen
What goes on when we sleep? Is it just a matter of letting our body rest? Prof. Robert Stickgold: "during an eight hour night, there are two main critical stages during which the brain undergoes both physical and chemical changes". What do our Sages say?
