15 — Forbiddance and Permission

2 Leave a comment on block 2 0

Some people say that the default state of things is that they are forbidden unless revelation permits them, so that if one does not find evidence of permissibility in revelation, one sticks to the default of forbiddance. Some people say the opposite: that the default state of things is that they are permitted unless revelation forbids them.

Presumption of continuity means that in the absence of revealed evidence, one presumes that the default remains in effect.
