Reader comment on item: Counting Islamists

Hello qforce, you wrote:

>>Btilly, stop using "0" because it started with Islam<<

People whose achievements are near nil insinuate they are the real originators of innovations that have taken humankind forward. qforce the fact that you think the decimal system originated with Muslims is a sad commentary on this habit of Muslims crowing about their achievements. Read a good encyclopedia about the history of mathematics.

Regards

Plato
