you see, dear tony, the example i gave of sleeping on the back was not an invention, rather, a miracle of Islam. i did not mean for it to imply that we invented it, rather, i wanted to show that in a DEEN (culture/way of life) revealed 1400+ years ago, there were things within it which only today we find are true. however, if you want contribution, research the 7th through the 13th century, and you will find your answer. the muslims were the leaders in the invention and understanding of mathematics, and they invented "the present arithmetical decimal system and the fundamental operations connected with it addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, exponentiation, and extracting the root" (http://www.muslimheritage.com/topics/default.cfm?ArticleID=359) With that said, your argument is completely invalid. can you say that such advances in mathematics MADE BY THE MUSLIMS are insignificant?

also, you talk about the "Shariah Law" in today's world, and how it is corrupt. well, my friend, i stress again, no country in the world has currently imposed Islamic Law...there is no true Muslim country! the countries who claim to be Islamic countries are no more than puppets of the West and modernistic/secularistic society. an example of that is Iraq. Just today, July 26th, the new Prime Minister announced that he was an ally of the West, and that he supported the "war on terror" wholeheartedly. he went on and on about democracy and modernization in the country and how he supported it...this is not Islam. so your "babble" is irrelevant, in that places with Shariah Law are not "uniformly the worst places on Earth" because there are no places with Shariah Law on the Earth!

in regards to you and your "life" and its "meaning", i only feel sorry for you. it is you who has shown your cards, in that you clearly are in love with this world, and give naught about the next life (i.e. life after death, which last i checked was a belief held by most all the world's major religions). you have shown your cards, in that you hate those who try to show you the right path and that you feel that this world (this life) is the greatest of all lives. of course, in your mind, when you die, that's all. to you, after death there is nothing, and our bodies just lay there and rot. i truly feel sorry for you, tony, because it seems as i am holding my hand out to you to pull you up, you have chosen to let yourself fall. my regards, tony, you bewildered individual.
