not according to the Rambam. that shailoh is gepaskened like the man d'amar sinai, no?
alte reid. it's an ancient debate, possibly going back to the unanswered question at the conclusion of horoyos...
the Rambam, here, states clearly that the tachlis of the gemara is to engage in the lamdus (which should be obvious to anyone who's learned a blatt or two anyways), he just feels that that whole edifice has been destroyed today, ch'v, and his talmid should, therefore busy himself with the mishnah torah, and not gemara.
the first part of the Rambam's statement is obvious, that the clear tachlis of the gemara is to encourage analysis, critical thinking, and debate, the second part, that we should therefore stop learning gemara, and just learn the mishnah torah, well... let's just say we don't pasken that way.
