On the interface: Immutable Torah, unchanging laws of nature, ever-changing understanding of these laws.
Tendler, MD. 2004.  BH 14:57-66. CELD ID 21499

This paper will address the current societal sentiment that science and technology are on a collision course with the truth of our Torah. Knowledge of science, however, is necessary to properly perform a number of Torah commandments. The fundamental truths of our Torah, such as: a)the utility of all that G-d created; and b) the infallibility of our sages in matters of religion but not in secular science, have come under attack by our antagonists. On the other hand, the yeshivah world unfortunately is retreating from the natural world. We need to return to believing in the unity of Ha'Shem Elokim, the G-d of nature and Torah.
