"No greater scientific golden in the history of man" than the Islamic golden age.

Ooops! Here's another spineless apologist FD - better show him your graphs to set him straight.

My goodness Gordy, thats about the exact opposite to what I was expecting.

He doesn't blame Islam - if he did then he wouldn't be singing the praises of Islam's "cultural heritage" of the Golden Age. All he's saying is that its time for muslims to return to what they were. He could only do this if he believed Islam was inherently anti-Science. If he did he'd have to be doing FD-like mental gymnastics to try and prove how Islam never had any scientific tradition - instead of praising the past achievements of Islam.

So you're telling me that of the 1400 year history of Islam there were 300 productive years which occured mostly towards the beginning of the religion when there was free sharing of ideas.

So how do you plan to turn the clock back and reverse the majority of the history of Islam which has been a scientific desert......since that 300 year golden age which occured in ancient history?

Saudi Arabia and any Muslim country can be as Islamic as they please.  In Australia we should  Demand 100% secularism with no pandering to Islam.

"......the Islamic golden age."

What a pathetic and disingenuous fraud upon mankind such claims are.




Any rational person [with a previous experience in dealing with any moslem and their 'pronouncements'], must simply take any moslem account of ANYTHING, as an absolute fabrication/lie.
[......unless he has irrefutable hard evidence confirming any moslem claim.]

Q.
The reason ?

Moslems 'confuse' truth with lies.

i.e.
Any [seemingly irrefutable] lie, which portrays ISLAM/moslems in a good light, has always been 'forged' into a 'confirmed historic truth' by moslem 'blacksmiths'.

Moslems are inveterate LIARS.


Every culture on the planet, who has had dealings with the moslem knows this claim to be the truth.

Moslems are unashamed, barefaced LIARS.

That, is what mankind's historic interaction with 'the moslem' has confirmed.

Quote:

Whenever moslems write accounts of history,
       .....it has been shown time and time again, that moslems will shamelessly fabricate the 'history' of some past circumstance or event, so as to favour some current moslem interest.

And these false historical accounts which moslems 'produce' as evidence, invariably always portray moslems, in their current conflicts [with their enemies], as correct/virtuous/or as victims of injustice.


e.g.

Quote:

Chief Muslim claims Jewish Temples never existed
March 15, 2007
"....The Jewish Temples never existed.......descriptions of the Jewish Temples in the Hebrew Tanach, in the Talmud and in Byzantine and Roman writings from the Temple periods were forged, and that the Torah was falsified to claim Biblical patriarchs and matriarchs were Jewish when indeed they were prophets for Islam."

Temple Mount '100% Islamic'

"....Taysir Tamimi, chief Palestinian Justice and one of the most influential Muslim leaders in Israel, argued the Jewish Temples never existed,...."

QUESTION;

How can we know when moslems are lying to us [about ISLAM, or about their true motives, towards us] ?

ANSWER;
We can't.


But it is a sure bet, that moslems are lying to us, and often!!





I do go on, and on,       ....and on.

I feel like i should apologise.

......but i'm not going to.

Seems there's been a pretty long drought of scientific endeavor in Islamic countries.

Any theories?

The "islamic" golden age is once again, not quite accurate.  More specifically, it was a Persian golden age.  Almost all great "islamic" scholars were persians, who were absorbed into islam rather than produced by it.  Since Persia has been yoked by Islam, they haven't contributed anything.  Not only does Islam produce no thought, it snuffs out the innovative spirit of those it subjugates. 

The contributions of arabs to the sum of human knowledge is comparable to that of aborigines.  In fact, one could even make a case that it is less than zero, as an unimaginable wealth of knowledge was destroyed in the siege of baghdad, when the pride and folly of dumbass arabs led the mongols to near annihilate them.  They are equally as full of inexplicable pride and folly today, as they were then.

Scientific endeavour ENDURED in the early years of Islam until it fully took hold and snuffed it out.

Would Gandalf suggest that brief  magical 300 year period was the true Islam and the 1000 plus years of intellectual barrenness is the aberration?

Absolutely - and 300 years is a bit unfair. The best years consisted of 500 years at least - and even after that, many great scientific works by muslims continued such as in astronomy.

For comparison, Christiandom was an intellectual wasteland for around 1000 years
