AP: Does Chilazon – the snail fit the description in the Talmud?
IZ: 1. Following the late Chief Rabbi Herzog, I have demonstrated that the 4 criteria in the talmud are fulfilled in the banded-dye murex (H.trunculus).
Do you have any difficulty with my publications on this?
2. Besides that let it be clear that the historical and scientific evidence is so conclusive that, if this is not the authentic hilazon, then it would mean that it never existed. This would undermine the very foundation of the veracity of our faith.
