Western Civilisation

Until the advent of materialism and 19th c. dogma, Western Civilisation was  superior to anything Islam had developed.  Islam has not aided in the development of the modern world; in fact civilisation has only been created in spite of Islam.  Proof of this resides in the 'modern' world and the unending political-economic and spiritual poverty of Muslim states and regions.  Squatting on richer civilisations is not 'progress'.  Islam is pagan, totalitarian, and irrational.

Christian scientists and thinkers in the Middle Ages

Make me a similar list of Moslems.....

by Ferdinand III

In 'God's Philosophers', James Hannam lists by my count, about 111 Catholic Medieval scientists who during the 'Middle Ages', prepared the way for modern science and technology. The most ardent Moslemophile screeching that Islam created the modern world, might be able to name 5 Moslems during the same period [including the usual tired, disreputable names of Averroes etc. yawn, boring]; who impacted the European scientific mind. For the big-brains, a handful of Moslems who might have slightly amended or added to Greek thought; is certainly more important to modernity, than the dozens of European Christians who actually invented it. That is why they are so clever – whatever reality proves, believe the opposite.  50 men from Hannam's list are below.

Phd thesis: Make a similar list of Moslem geniuses and innovators....

Given the names above the 'middle ages' must surely have a been a terribly dark and horrendous time of stunted intellects and knuckle-dragging sack clothe wearing morons....unlike today of course with the cults of reality-tv, globaloneywarming, gay, Islam-is-Peace and the state. The poorly named Enlightenment was of course built on the advances from the Middle Ages, Voltaire, his insanity and his ego notwithstanding. And the above list of names is only a very partial compendium of what could be identified.

Buried in European vaults and libraries are literally tonnes of Latin documents from the Middle Ages – but who reads Latin anymore ? Early vulgate language treatises also reside in their collective dust, unused, unread, unknown and in vast quantity. But why bother to read those ? Who needs to do real work these days ? Surely we only need to listen to uninformed bigots like Gibbon or Diderot, who never investigated, understood, nor had any intimate knowledge of the 'middle ages'. Much easier to let others do the thinking for us, especially if they only confirm our prejudices and ignorance.
