I am amused that you revert to the Taqiyya tactic of when confronted by supported facts by calling the lies instead of proving they are lies. I will give you and example how it words You claimed Also the word "laser" is not known to be used as an adjective. That is not the primary function of the word. My response using Taqiyya would be You lie, you are ignorant. But and honest reply is No you are wrong, laser is more commonly used as a adjective in everyday use. Have you not heard of laser light, laser cut, laser pen, laser edge, laser scalpel, laser surgery? Now can you see the difference Amin?

Not only did you claim knowledge that I have easily proved wrong, you did so in a way that shows ... because the primary usage of laser is as an adjective which I have clearly demonstrated. Now let me give you another example you said You have failed to answer why Arabic is a poor language - and have provided no sources. You have INVENTED and LIED about figures. Simply made them up. my last comment I quoted "Some relatively more plausible reasons for the slow scientific development of Muslim countries have been offered.

First, even though a handful of rich oil-producing Muslim countries have extravagant incomes, most are fairly poor and in the same boat as other developing countries. Indeed, the OIC average for per capita income is significantly less than the global average. Second, the inadequacy of traditional Islamic languages—Arabic, Persian, Urdu—is an important contributory reason. About 80% of the world's scientific literature appears first in English, and few traditional languages in the developing world have adequately adapted to new linguistic demands. With the exceptions of Iran and Turkey, translation rates are small. "

This is a source, and to prove I provided the link


This article, written by a Pakistani Scientist who clearly views Arabic, Persian and Urdu as weak. Now tell me again I have not provided a single source? I again state that you have used Taqiyya where you have ignored the facts presented, and made up a defence, in that you say I have provided no sources. LOL You also said I made it up and lied, you are soooo funny and predictable. You have done this because you cannot refute in an intelligent manner anything I have said, so you make up things, as I have just clearly demonstrated, and you blatantly lie to try and hide the fact you do not have a clue about what you are talking about. you said Ha ha ha ha ha - never go up against a decent linguist with tripe like that! Do you know a decent linguist? Because you certainly are not one !! Even just one of your poisoned comments how easily that facts and truth scare you. Otherwise you would present facts and truths not lies and denial. You are hoping another Taqiyya technique of repeating your denials in hope of wearing our the truth, or showing such conviction that everyone else must be wrong that maybe you are right. I think how people rate your comments measures the degree that people believe or agree with you a person states. Amin, I do not think many people agree with you. In your personal life, do you have many friends? You seem a very abrasive person.
