The myth of Islamic knowledge

In Algebra, Appeasers and Useful Idiot Dhimmis, Ignorant and gullible Infidels, Mathematics, The myth of Islamic knowledge, The truth about Islam on July 10, 2009 at 12:09 PM

What beneficial or beautiful thing has Islam ever produced?

It’s greatest accomplishments were not its own, they were stolen from the dhimmi populations conquered at Muhammad’s command.

No, Islam has contributed nothing to the world, unless you count “sacralized” slaughter, rape, and slavery “advances.”

Refutation of a typically self-loathing and tyrant-friendly “analysis” in defense of Islam, from here:

“Remember, in medieval times and the early Renaissance, scientists and astronomers in the West were being persecuted (Galileo, Copernicus, and others) while Arab astronomers and mathematicans were making great contributions to the body of world knowledge.”

After centuries of slaughtering Western Infidels[,] destroying their work[,] and [usurping their] knowledge in service to Allah.

[And the persecution of scientists by European Christendom has been exaggerated.]

“Algebra, for example, is an Arabic word.”

Which means that Arabic had words.

You leave out Heron of Alexandria, Diophantus [the true “Father of Algebra”], and Aryabhata, among others.

“The zero is a concept given to us by Babylonians (and Hindus).”

Your “father of algebra” attributes zero to Brahmagupta, who [developed] a decimal-based number system. He was [orthodox] Hindu.

The Babylonians used zero as a placeholder in representing another number, while the Romans and Ptolemy used it to show a lack of quantity.
