Western Civilisation

Western Civilisation was and is superior to anything Islam has developed.  Islam has not aided in the development of the modern world; in fact civilisation has only been created in spite of Islam.  Raising the alarm about the fascism called Submission since 2000.

Islam's 'great' culture invented what exactly?

As ridiculous as the claims of the Nazis and the Soviets.

Screaming Marxists and bomb-throwing Muslims cannot obfuscate the obvious – Islam was, is and always will be, a complete failure. Look around the modern world, what did the Muslims invent? [and no the zero was a Hindu invention]. What enlightened spiritually have they given the world? What advances in thought, science, society, architecture, or business has the Arabic-Islamic culture given the world? Answer; absolutely nothing. Or do you really believe that a ritualised cult, premised on 7th century pre-modern ideals is the great petri-dish of innovative vigor and excellence?

 

Islam has never invented anything. Muslim apologists point to all sorts of absurdity and jump and down, while crying, 'see the Muslims created that!'. Grow up. Imbibing Muslim propaganda and consuming fantastical claims while ignoring when, how and why the modern world was created does not a tolerant multi-cult lover make. It just means you are rather dim. 


Like the Muslims, the Russians had the same trick with the mysterious but omnipotent 'Popov', the master creator of the universe, appearing everywhere. The Russians still celebrate Popov-day to honor the mythical man who apparently invented the radio and the cathode ray tube – no thanks to Marconi, Edison, Tesla et al. No one knows if Popov really existed [there was a minor scientist by the name, who lived in the mid-19th century, but he did not invent anything of note], but for the Communists that did not matter. Popov was the representation of Soviet reality – the classless man who defeated the immoral, bourgeois West, in scientific invention. That is to say, the fantasy of Popov was to express what should have been true, but which was only a piece of Soviet propaganda. 


The Nazi's of course had their heroic legends as well. Absurdly the Nazi's were convinced that their descendants were of Aryan stock [in actual fact the Aryans are traced to Persian, and northern India], who were physically, mentally, and culturally superior to all other races. In Hitler's race based theory, this Aryan stock was responsible for European culture or at least the vast superiority of German culture versus that of the rest. Sub-humans must then bow down to the Aryan wunderkind. For the Nazi's all the great feats of modern living and culture were the direct result of Aryan-German effort and brilliance. From Beethoven, to Frederick, to Bismarck, to architecture, to military technology, the Germans had invented any and everything of modern interest. It was the Communist lie about Popov on a racial scale. That is at least what was fed to the German people during the 1930s. 


The Muslims do the same. In Muslim legend those peaceful, honest, culturally sublime Arabs and friends were not busy with war, expanding the Islamic empire, slave trading, pursuing women and gold – of course not. They were in earnest and thoughtful conversation and study, extremely occupied with setting up hospitals, universities, scientific institutes, and inventing algebra, medicine, manned-flight, culinary masterpieces, architectural wonders, and all manners of devices to improve the life, liberty and potential of the average human. 


Really they were. The Arabs of course as all the Muslim apologists know, not only saved the West from its 'Dark Age' barbarism, but actually invented the modern world! You can't be a denier! Without the profundity and remorseless energy and intelligence of the Arabs and their Muslim friends, Europe would still be nothing more than a forested land of infected and uneducated half-humans unable to spell Aristotle, let alone comprehend the writings of Galen, Socrates, Aeschylus, Thales, Euclid, Pythagoras and a variety of other ancient writers – who must of course have stolen their ideas from the pagan Arabs. As everyone knows Aristotle who tutored Alexander was really named Mohammad. 


Not one single invention attributed by the Muslims to themselves were invented by the Arabs or their conquered Muslim slave-states. Arab imperialism has given the world nothing but a sick culture of paternalistic violence, bomb-throwing, racism and hatred of all things modern. All the usual suspects of supposed Arab and Islamic prowess; the astrolabe; algebra, architecture, the zero, and 'medicine', were all invented, built, extended, developed, and used by others – far more advanced than the Arab-Islamic slave states. 


For the hard of reading, advanced mathematics was a Greek invention, as was medicine [Muslims can't perform biopsies or autopsies which severely limits medicial inquiry]; algebra was built by a 3nd century Christian [Diophantus] who based his work on ancient Greek texts; the zero comes from the Hindus [about 100 million of which were murdered by Arab armies]; advances in sea-faring including the astrolabe date from Byzantium and the Phoenician fleets; and the complex of scientific inquiry and rational methods had to wait until Bede, Francis Bacon the I, and the application of higher math to solve scientific laws. I don't recall Bede, Bacon, or the founders of rational thought being named Mohammed. 


Even in architecture the Arabs took advanced engineering works and concepts from Byzantium, the Jews and Persia to create what some might call an Arab-style. They invented nothing knew but amalgamated existing ideas. In fact all the artisanal and architectural works of the Arab-Islamic states were performed by engineers who were not Muslim or had converted to Islam but in fact were Greek, Persian, Jewish or formerly Christian. 


There is not one single record or fact which exists which can prove that the Arabs improved upon existing engineering techniques. In 500 B.C. the Carthaginians had running water [a semitic group originally from Lebanon]; in 1100 B.C. the ancient Greeks had invented advanced arch forms; in 540 B.C. the Persians had constructed vast and improbably great irrigation systems. What were the Arabs and 'pre-Muslims' doing during these epochs? Mired in hate, violence and illiteracy one imagines. 


Even during the period of Islamic expansion the Muslims created nothing new or innovative. Hospitals were a Christian idea. Scientific institutes were formalised by the ancient Athenians. Rational inquiry took root in 500 B.C. in Ionia – among the Greeks. The creation of towns and social structures lies with the Jews – Jericho is the oldest city in the world. Running water, sewers, irrigation and crop rotation were perfected by the Romans and Persians. Monotheism was of course in the main a Jewish invention, though the 10th century B.C. Persians did have Zoroastrianism – a precursor to Jewish monotheism. 


The Arab-Muslim invention of note is of course the Koran. A text of violence, supremacism, racism and vitriol. It is the imperial tool par excellence. Submit, be taxed, exile yourself, or die! Other than this pagan-fascist manuscript not much except spices, some textiles and camels, has come out of Arabia. But of course the Arabs must have invented trade, commerce, banking, and the division of labor! [between ruling Muslims and slaves, one imagines]. 


Consider this – fascisms don't invent, they destroy. Paganisms don't create they ritualise. The only creation of a fascism or a pagan cult, is either death, or mindless propaganda to support the supremacist ideal. Mohammad, the Koran, the political objectives of Dar-al Islam vs. Dar Al Harb [non-believers], makes Islamic ideology fascist and quite primitive. No private property, no respect for rights, no inquiry, no debate, no need for freedom, no need for equality or justice - just submit to a leader and its government. Ossified Islam is the anti-thesis of any societal construction which allows the blossoming of rationality, science and perforce – the creation of anything we might call modern. 


Like the Nazis and Communists the Arabs and Muslims are good at using propaganda. Be very careful believing the myths around Islam. The reality of the 5 senses should tell you otherwise. Or do you really think that an ideology which commands complete submission and obedience, and which was spread by war and violence is somehow civilized? 

Medieval Catholic Europe and its great contribution to science

Moslems no where to be found...though the Islamo-apologists will invent lies....

In the anti-Catholic world of today, where a bronze-age inspired moon cult fascism named Submission, is lauded as 'religious', the revisionist history of Atheists and Secularists – resplendent in ignorance especially in English speaking countries – is being dismantled, by facts and history. The glory of the Catholic Church, as well as its errors, sometimes corruption, mistakes and infirmities, is being brought into focus, during the past 100 years [starting with Duhem, an apostate from the Atheist-Marxist revisionist school].


No longer is there a 'dark age', from 500-1000 AD, but an age of survival against the Moslem Jihad, the Viking-Moslem slave trade, the Viking raids, the Magyar-Hun irruptions; and the turmoil associated with the transition from the debilitated and deformed Roman world, to the modern [History Channel and other panegyrics to the 'glory of Rome' notwithstanding]. Gone is the idea that nothing happened, nothing was invented, and science and math did not exist. Only the wretchedly uneducated believe in such fairy tales.


In a very interesting book, 'Galileo goes to jail, and other myths about Science and Religion', there are chapters devoted to the mendacity that there is a conflict between science and faith; or that religion retarded inquiry. The opposite is of course true. Without the Catholic Church there is no modern world – from dissecting the human body and religion; from calculus to the cosmos; from optics to higher math; from blast furnaces to cathedrals; the poorly named Middle Ages were full of social, political, intellectual and scientific creation – all in the name of God and understanding the wonders of his design. In this vein there is no 'science', today the cult of warm, Darwin, monkeys to men; and other apocrypha all serve, and all are viewed through the prism of naturalism. There is no independent scientific establishment.


We know for a fact that the Church was the biggest financier of science in history until modern times. From 'Galileo goes to jail and other myths.....'

Catholic church has been probably the largest single and longest-term patron of science in history, that many contributors to the Scientific Revolution were themselves Catholic, and that several Catholic institutions and perspectives were key influences upon the rise of modern science.”


Newton was not a deist, but a profoundly religious Christian:

...philosophes of the eighteenth century created their own view of Newton as the apotheosis of the kind of secular reason that they advanced to replace Christianity, and an active God did not fit into their picture...”


The notion of the world's being a great machine, going on without the interposition of God, as a clock continues to go without the assistance of a clockmaker; is the notion of materialism and fate, and tends, (under pretence of making God a supramundane intelligence,) to exclude providence and God's government in reality out of the world.”


Newton was well read in Rene Descartes (1596-1650) and other mechanical philosophers, who sought to explain phenomena in terms of matter and motion. He was a mechanical philosopher himself, but he found Descartes' specific picture of the world as nothing but matter and motion theologically dangerous-where was there any room for free divine activity...”



Another example of mendacity: the Jesuits did not obstruct Galileo or any of the other 'scientists' of the 16th or 17th century, quite the contrary:

Jesuits (officially called the Society of Jesus). Formally established in 1540, the society placed such special emphasis on education that by 1625 they had founded nearly 450 colleges in Europe and elsewhere. Many Jesuit priests were deeply involved in scientific issues, and many made important contributions. The reformed calendar, enacted under Pope Gregory XIII in 1582 and still in use today, was worked out by the Jesuit mathematician and astronomer Christoph Clavius (1538-1612). Optics and astronomy were topics of special interest for Jesuits. Christoph Schemer (1573-1650) studied sunspots,...



Likewise the 'fat' friars and monks were indispensable to preserve, than extend science:

...during the Scientific Revolution, Catholic monks, friars, and priests in missions constituted a virtual worldwide web of correspondents and data collectors. Information on local geography, flora, fauna, mineralogy, and other subjects as well as a wealth of astronomical, meteorological, and seismological observations flooded back into Europe from far-flung Catholic missions in the Americas, Africa, and Asia. The data and specimens they sent back were channeled into natural-philosophical treatises and studies by Catholics and Protestants alike. This massive collection of new scientific information...”


Universities – a Catholic invention – soon built up specialized skills and created academies or organizations to reflect that focus. An example is the scientific focus of the Catholic university of Paris:

Royal Academy of Sciences in Paris, founded in 1666 and probably the most stable and productive of all early scientific societies, had a majority of Catholic members, such as Gian Domenico Cassini (1625-1712), famed for his observations of Jupiter and Saturn, and Wilhelm Homberg (1653-1715), a convert to Catholicism and one of the most renowned and productive chemists of his day. Four of the early members were in orders, including the abbe Jean Picard (1620-1682), a noted astronomer, and the abbe Edme Mariotte (ca. 1620-1684), an important physicist.”


From the Middle Age milieu of inquiry, faith, reason and honest assessment of facts and observations, we have the rise of modern science:

...catalog of Catholic contributors to the Scientific Revolution would run to many pages and exhaust the reader's patience. Thus it will suffice to mention just a very few other representatives from various scientific disciplines. In the medical sciences, there is Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564), the famous anatomist of Brussels; while another Fleming, Joan Baptista Van Helmont (1579-1644), one of the most innovative and influential voices in seventeenth-century medicine and chemistry, was a devout Catholic with strong mystical leanings.' In Italy, the microscopist Marcello Malpighi (1628-1694)... Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543), was not only Catholic but in Holy Orders as a cathedral canon (a cleric charged with administrative duties). And lest it be said that he was simultaneously persecuted for his astronomical work, it must be pointed out that much of his audience and support came from within the Catholic hierarchy...”


Copernicus famously stated that he waited so long to publish his heliocentric work, due to the howling madness of academics invested in the Ptolemy's geocentric model. He was right. The Catholics were in the main happy with heliocentricity since it lifted the earth from the center, which according to scripture is dirty, unworthy and full of refuse, into an enlightened plane, further justifying faith and the belief in man's unique planet and creation. The problem with Copernicus was that his math did not support elliptical orbits – a fact that Jesuit astronomers had proven. It was another Christian Kepler who provided the math [not Galileo, who maintained weirdly that tides proved heliocentricity....]


In any event a list of Catholic scientists does indeed run to many pages. But of course Atheists and Moslems will invent Moslem and Arab names, link them to Cordoba of the 9th or 10th century, and state emphatically with no proof, 'without Islam, there is no Catholic scientific revolution...' Whatever.



Christian science to Einstein and Nuclear energy

Maxwell would not be 'suitable' for academia today. Neither would Einstein.

Bookmark and Share

From Maxwell to Einstein. There is no corollary within Islam of course, though I am sure Phds are being minted confirming that Maxwell received all of his input and inspiration from some non-existent Moslem science during the Golden Age. Indeed electro-magnetic theory was no doubt discovered in the mythical Cordoba of the 9th century....


In the modern pagan cults which dominate society – Islam is civilization, warming, the earth mother, atheism, fish-to-men, relativity, exploding everything from nothing – a serious appreciation for life, grace, beauty and existence is given short shrift. The so-called 'Enlightenment' disparaged a thousand years of European progress, belittling the Catholic society that somehow survived the Moslem Jihad, the Vikings, Magyars and Avars, various plagues, famines and 'climate change', not to mention creating modern science, math, medicine, architecture and universities. Books so beloved by the smug 'intellectual', were a medieval creation.


In the modern age we take nuclear power – for good and bad – as a given. Yet it was only developed in the West. It is rather easy for anyone with enough initiative to trace out the direct line from medieval science, the 13th century to the 19th century, and the Christian scientist Maxwell, who provided the key insight which led to our usage of safe nuclear power. I don't see a Moslem lineage or equivalent technological development.


In 1864 Maxwell gave a presentation to the Royal Society of London titled: 'A Dynamic Theory of the Electro-Magnetic Field'. He stated: 


We have strong reason to conclude that light itself - including radiant heat and other radiation, if any - is an electromagnetic disturbance in the form of waves propagated through the electro-magnetic field according to electro-magnetic laws.”

Historian of science one Professor R V Jones made the observation that: “This paper is the first pointer to the existence of radiation other than light and heat, and ranks as one of the greatest leaps ever achieved in human thought.”


Maxwell did not have a Phd. He was Christian. According to the cults of science today, this would mean that nothing he said or did would be 'scientific'. He would not be allowed an academic post in today's university system of cultish belief and group think.


By calculating the speed of electromagnetic waves, Maxwell postulated that light is a form of electromagnetic radiation exerting pressure and carrying momentum. This is a crucial insight and as Jones states, one of the most germane in the entire history of human thought. Maxwell's experiential data provided the basis for Einstein's work on relativity from which the relationship between energy, mass and velocity contributed to the theory underlying the development of atomic energy. Einstein was another scientist sans a Phd, a deist [though not a believer in the Christian ideal of God]; and today would not be qualified to teach in a university because he would not garner enough grant money. Such is the reduction of science in its purity and purpose.
