    Less than a year after Chanuka, a holiday in which we celebrate victory against the Greeks, we publish a quote from a Greek guy in a frum magazine?

    Who said it’s a frum magazine (other than the publisher)?

    Since when is it against Halacha to quote the Pythagoreom Theorom or discuss Euclidian Geometry

    If it doesn’t matter who said it, why mention the name?

    Would you be upset if there was a quote from a Rabbi in a Greek magazine?
    If it’s truth, it’s truth.

    Can you tell me where the Rambam said this? It doesn’t sound like the lashon of the Rambam.

    Over there, the Rambam is specifically discussing learning from philosophers.

    Aristotle offered advice on shidduchim (or do I have no idea what Tachlis magazine is)?

    So I guess I was right. It did not sound like the lashon of the Rambam and it wasn’t.

    I believe the Rambam says he sometimes quotes Aristotle.

    I don’t understand what you wrote. I was not precise with my quote, I quoted it properly in my second comment. The substance is remains the same. As Jews, we are not beholden to marginalize facts, just because we don’t approve of their author.

    RY – I like your first clause in the OP. I think I will try to use that in the future. It works well for Yom Kippur in particular – “it’s less than a year since Yom Kippur and you’re already speaking Loshon Hora?!”

    Rambam also praised Galen as the greatest doctor of all time.

    We won’t bring Tachlis magazine into our home for almost a year already. What did they quote him on?

    I decided to look up the quote and found that it was never said by Aristotle, it is from Will Durant as a description of Aristotle’s philosophy. Apparently a retiring football player mistakenly thought it was Aristotle’s quote and mentioned it in his retirement speech and since then it has been attributed to Aristotle.

    What happened to my signature line?

    Was Aristotle antivaxx?
