    Doesn’t the very discussion on the bottom of 15a and top of 15b give lie to the oft-stated opinion that all of the Oral Law was given to Moshe at Sinai? I mean, it clearly appears that even Chazal believed that the law changed over time!

    Whoa … we burn terumah even on a safek of touching dirt from chutz laaretz???!!!!???

    That would mean that ALL terumah has to be burned. always and forever, due to the existence of sandstorms that are known to always blow dirt from chutz laaretz into Israel!

      Perhaps it becomes Israeli land once it blows in…?

        Makes sense, especially since sand/soil/etc constantly blows around and gets mixed.

        Perhaps the safek is if it somehow came into contact with soil from chutz laaretz while in transit?

    Doesn’t דיין שעתן have to do with things the women touched? How do you understand Hillel’s opinion otherwise?
