So far, there is no question on the Rambam. He was simply quoting facts as they knew them. However, certain Torah scholars have proposed that since this book is "halacha", and since halacha is eternal and true, that we can conclude that these facts were also intended to be given the weight of halacha truth.
How are we to continue a system of law, based on eyewitnesses and presumption of honesty, if we are told that in all matters we cannot even trust our observations. How are we supposed to sustain halachic assumptions based on cause and effect, when we essentially deny cause and effect. (Note that some modern types even openly endorse this divorce of cause and effect scientifically using scanty quantum mechanics knowledge, loosely based on Heisenberg and teh Copenhagen interpretation.) We will discuss these subjects individually of course, but overall, I will simply begin by offering that a real world philosophy based on such notions is at least bizarre. We will also be discussing the efficacy of magic, superstition, its place in Judaism and its modern forms, such as alternative medicine, psychics and Eastern philosophies.
