Where is the Moslem Maxwell, the moon cult Morley, or the Meccan Einstein?

Surely Islam invented modern thermodynamics......

by Ferdinand III

Without James Clerk Maxwell [1831-1879], Einstein cannot develop his theorems. Without Edward Morley [1838-1923]; the speed of light would not have been known in time for Einstein and others to postulate physical relativity, energy and mass. Without these 2 Christian scientists – among a host of others which could be named – the modern world of machines, motion, electricity and communications would not exist.

Morley precedes Einstein [link]:

In 1887, Michelson and Morley found that the speed of light was constant in both directions of the Earth’s path around the sun, when they expected the Earth’s speed should add or subtract from light speed, like other waves do.

The null result was a surprise to everyone in the physics community. It’s been called the “most famous failed experiment in history.” They expected that some sort of stationary medium (ether) must permeate space as a medium for light waves, like air for sound waves or water for water waves.  In this view, the Earth should travel through an “ether wind” that would slow down the speed of light in the forward direction and speed it up in the backward direction. It did not. Interestingly, neither Michelson nor Morley felt the experiment disproved the existence of the ether.

Taking the result at face value, Einstein treated the constancy of the speed of light as a fundamental principle of the universe in the development of his revolutionary ideas on special relativity and general relativity. It required postulating that time and space can shrink and expand, while light travels at a constant speed in a vacuum, independent of the speed of propagation.”

Without Morley's insight, Einstein's theorems would not work. Indeed today, there is now some disagreement that the speed of light is a constant. The ramifications for physics would be quite large, if it is proven true that light speed varies.

Maxwell, a practicing Christian and role model non-pareil, was quite likely the most influential scientist since Newton. Without Maxwell, there is no Einstein.

Dr. Richard Feynman, Nobel laureate and influential 20th-century modern physicist, paid his respects this way: 'From a long view of the history of mankind–seen from, say, ten thousand years from now– there can be little doubt that the most significant event of the 19th century will be judged as Maxwell’s discovery of the laws of electrodynamics.'  Electricity and magnetism, mere curiosities when explored by Faraday and explained by Maxwell, turned out to generate more economic wealth than the entire British stock exchange.  Our modern world is inconceivable without the experimental and theoretical foundation laid by these two great Christians and scientists who harnessed mysterious laws of nature for human benefit.

There is no conflict between faith and scientist, or between real faith and reason. Unlike Christianity Islam does not enshrine reason - it is a cult of death and obedience.  There never has been, and never could be a Moslem Morley, Maxwell, Faraday or Einstein.  Islam preaches the opposite of rational investigation.  It demands undying obeisance to Muhammad and his handbook of hate, Mein Koran.
