You say most of the 'populars' were Muslim and then note 3. Are you kidding? Muslims have invented virtually nothing. Let me list the important inventors (not actors and boxers) who were non-Muslim:

Einstein (atomic energy) - Jewish
Eugene Bourdon - (Bourdon tube pressure gauge) - France
is Braille (Braille) - France
Michael Faraday (Electric Motor) - UK
Dennis Gábor (Holography) - UK
John Tyndall (Gas Mask - something we need with Muslims in the world) - UK
Thomas Savery, Thomas Newcomen, James Watt (steam engine) - UK
Charles Macintosh (Waterproof Fabric) - UK
Bill Gates (computers that work) - US
Leonardo DaVinci (helicopter among others) - Italy
Thomas Edison (electricity and lightbulb) - UK
Alexander Graham Bell (telephone) UK

Muslims are the 'looers' and their lack of past invention is the reason they are not powerful. Muslims may be growing in number but the next great world power will be China, which the West relates well to.
