Thanks Nicholas for your last comment, it was not interesting. For every comment you make, there is going to be a Proverb or Parable for you that my mom taught me. So at this phase of your intelectual evolvment, I got the following Parable should fit:

In a forest there was two men, one wise and one stuborn. While the goats were drinking from a near by stream, an eagle came down on a small goat and planted his nails into her back trying to pull her up and fly it away. The wise man said to the stupid, look! a small bird with intelligence is going to fly away with that goat..the stupid said, how can the eagle do so! the goat is heavier and will walk on the eagle..all of a sudden the eagle flew away with goat and all you can see is the goat in the air..the wise man said: you see, I am right. The stupid said, ALTHOUGH SHE IS IN THE AIR, SHE REMAINS A FLYING GOAT AS I CAN NOT SEE THE EAGLE...

Jeremy, the role of the Muslims in enlighting the dark aged Europe can not be denied and you can do with you mouth whatever you wish..there is difference between history and your dreams, so have sweet dreams..
