This makes me wonder

in response to reader comment: Signs from the Quran

I wonder, with all that scientific knowledge being dictated to him, why didn't Mohammad just throw together some rocket propelled grenades? Or invent the cell phone so he could explode bombs out on the caravan route from the comfort of his own home?

I wonder too, with this incredible storehouse of scientific knowledge, and trillions of oil dollars flowing in, why do Arabs have to come to the USA to attend flight schools and technical schools. I would have thought it would be the other way around, and the whole world would be flocking to the middle east to get a decent scientific education. Why isn't that the case? And Saudis always seem to be arriving at American hospitals, instead of taking advantage of the superior scientific knowledge they have at home. I can't figure it out.

By the way, Slayhy, I loved your commentary on Jesus, and your theory that he would have unleashed war on the world if only he'd had more time. I suggest you send that off to the University of Qom with 50 dirhams, you should receive a Ph.D in Islamic studies in the mail in a few weeks.

Oh, and Einstein was a Muslim, right? And Isaac Newton? Of course.
