Mansoor: Solid Islamic facts giving us indigestion

Reader comment on item: Britain's Encounter with Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Plato "as usual rocket fired without fuel"

Submitted by Plato (India), Apr 14, 2008 at 02:27

>>Plato you have great art of twisting the original question and throw the topic in no man's land.

Rather than accepting the signs Bilawal most sincerely posted you started discussion about Pakistan...so irrelevant and sheer waste of time<<

You don't seem to have read Bilawal's post. It is boasting of some alleged mathematical miracles in the Koran and I was just deflating that balloon. I brought in a Pakistani scientist's comments to show readers why Islamic mathematics and science is such a dismal state, and in such disrepute. What did I twist and into what??

>>…and it is no harm and no shame if Pakistan or any other Muslim country sends their youth or spend huge funds to take benefits of advanced technology..<

Neither the author nor I have said that it is a shame to seek knowledge wherever one can find it. The author is pointing out (read the whole article) possible reasons for the dismal state of Pakistani science. And one telling demonstration of what he was trying to tell us is Bilawal's strange posting on Koranic mathemagic.

>>Many times you discussed about Muslim achievement in Science....but you forget that if you just minus one achievement of Algebra by a Muslim Al-Khwarizmi the whole structure of science will fall apart.<<

Mansoor, just google, number system and see what comes up. Without the Hindus, who were also your ancestors, having invented place value for numbers we would still be without algebra and calculus. Why are you so proud of a foreign mathematician when you had far superior mathematicians and scientists as your ancestors?

>>It is very difficult to digest solid facts encountering everyday. You have now focussed to find ways to insult Muslims and Islam in particular but you are failed to understand that it is the most impossible thing you are attempting continuously. <<

What we encounter everyday is Muslims telling us that we are misguided because the Koran says so. The Koran also says that kaffirs like me are unclean, deaf, dumb and without intelligence. Islam threatens unbelievers with terrifying punishments for unbelief. These are some solid indigestible facts about Islam that Muslims are unable to live down except by reasoning that is bizarre to say the least.

Unbelievers draw cartoons of the prophet, criticize him for unethical and immoral behaviour including assassinations and marrying women whom he fancied and question some verses in the Koran for calling for violence against them. This sets off orgies of violence by the same Muslims who claim that Islam is a religion of peace. This also is another indigestible solid fact.

Plato
