in response to reader comment: There is no evidence of this

Agreed, Abu Nudnik, but my explanation for their current 'degradation' would be:

a. the surge of Islamism in the ME whereby independent thinking is discouraged and most people get their news and info from the Imam;

b. ignorant clannish culture that resists progress due to cultural or Islamic imperatives;

c. marriages between cousins/blood relatives and limited gene pools, again due to cultural imperatives.
