dhimmi no more" says: "So what did we learn from your post? Let me help you: Nothing, not a thing.The transmission of the Greek learning was done by non-Muslims, and how come you did not know that?"

Really? Then why there is no scientific books by christians for the Arabs to study but rather only the works of the ancient pagan philosophers? For your information to be a translator does not follow that you are scientist also or have written also a more developed treatise or works about science!

In contrast, western europe during the 10th upward had only translated and study the works of muslim scholars and scientist but no works of Christians!!! where is then the supposed works of the christian translator? anyway they are just mere translators not scientists!

The truth is that Arabs need a translator who knew both Greek and Syriac and Arabic that is why they employed greek orthodox christians not roman catholics for the task!!!! But it was the Arabs who developed and put in actual the ancient knowldege which are non-existent in europe that time!!!
