Columbia "professor" says...."muslims discovered everything"
« on: November 09, 2007, 11:40:16 AM »
"All modern discoveries are by muslim scientists" :::D :::D :::D

 I was obviously very grossly misinformed through 12 years of lower education and 4 years of higher education...I just wonder why none of my teachers ever told me about mohammad Einstein, or achmed Newton or mahboob Salk :D ::)

This imbecile actually gets paid to "teach" in a university..."arabic and islamic Studies" professor...might as well be the professor of popcorn flavorings, but the sad thing is there will be countless leftist students just eating this garbage up without even questioning it >:(

‘All modern discoveries are by Muslim scientists’

LAHORE: Muslim scientists have made all discoveries of the current age, said University of Columbia’s Arabic and Islamic Studies prof George Saliba at a seminar at the Government College University (GCU) on Monday. The seminar, titled The Problems of Historiography of Islamic Science, was held at Fazl-e-Hussain Hall. Saliba gave a critique of the standard classical accounts of the rise of Islamic science. He detailed problems in the accounts and explained alternative historiography that described the rise of an Islamic scientific tradition as a result of social and political conditions within the nascent Islamic empire. He said Muslim philosophy was the impetus behind Islamic science that had contributed to various disciplines including botany, zoology, algebra, trigonometry, physics, chemistry, astronomy, physics, chemistry, physiology and mathematics in the pre-industrial era. He said the use of decimal fractions was not a Western invention and that it was discovered by a Muslim scientist. He said the binary system, on which the computer was based, was also invented by a Muslim scientist. He said Arab/Islamic science was not an intermediary between Greek science and European science, but was rather the Renaissance that integrated the Islamic science with European science. Saliba also visited the English Language and Literature Department where he engaged faculty members in a conversation on the Islamic and Renaissance paradigms. staff report

Whats interesting is that Muslims invented and discovered almost nothing. Of the small amount of scientific knowledge to come out of the Islamic world almost all was translations of other peoples work, of the few actual discoveries almost all were made by non-Muslims, and almost all of the remaining work was done by Persians which was in spite of Islam not because of it.

Western Science developed almost totally independent of Islam, in fact the Islamic view of the world in which Allah can interfere and change the rules at any time makes the development of scientific theory nearly impossible.
