Our dear Robert صلى الله عليه وسلم whose Hindu ancestors were brutalized by the Muslim invaders of India is back and I wonder why!

>Algebra came to Europe with the Hindu-Arabic Numerals.

Dear readers: the latest among tablighee the likes of our dear Robert is that his Arab masters invented everything and the Qur'an is a book of science when this is far from the truth.

Mr genius the father of Algebra is Diophantus who lived in Alexandria several hundred years before the rise of the cult of Islam. He for sure was a pagan. Thank the Gods. How come you did not know that? Could it be because you are an ignorant tablighee?

>You seem to see only Spain as the route to Western Europe, But in fact the Venetians, for example traded with Byzantium and the Arabs and Ottomans.

More Shish kabab and falafel and hummus! What do the Venetians have to do with the translations? Nothing not a thing. Mr careless reader, I was talking about THE TRANSLATIONS from Greek to Syriac to Arabic and then to Catalan and then to Latin! you are a careless reader

As for the "numerals" your Arab masters called them الاعداد الهندية and they did not call them الاعداد الهندية والعربية so were the Arabs a bunch of liars? Oh the Arabic! Your Arab masters called them the Indian Numbers they did not call them the Indian-Arabic numbers

How come you did not know that? Oh the self hate! Right?

>Dummy

Say our dear Robert would you agree with me that anyone who says and having been saying for 1400 years that the earth is flat is a "dummy"? A yes or no answer will do

Oh here is a link to Diophantus

Oh al-Khawarizmi? He studied algebra in the 9th century several hundred years after Diophantus and he called the numbers: الاعداد الهندية He did not call them the Arabic numbers so was he a racist or an Islamophobe? Oh he was not an Arab he was a smart Persian

I urge you to revert back to the religion of your ancestors the Hindus and leave the Arabs and their imperialism behind
