Q: So, we are now facing "the clash of civilizations": the West and Islam, two civilizations which are equally great. A: Yes. Q: On one side, we have the civilization that gave the world democracy, the concept of rights, Roman law, Greek tragedy, Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, Galileo, Leonardo da Vinci, Newton, Einstein, Darwin, modern science, technology, Michaelangelo, Caravaggio, Raphael, Giotto, Brunelleschi, perspective in art, Picasso, Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi, Verdi, Homer, Virgil, Dante, Shakespeare, Euclid, Saint Peter's Basilica, the Empire State Building, Kant, Voltaire, ... A: OK, let me stop you. We've got an idea. Q: On the other side, we have the civilization that gave the world the Koran, a few pretty mosques, the numbers notations we use... A: No, actually the numbers we use were invented in India. We call them Arabic only because they reached us through Arabic translations of the original Sanscript texts. Q: Even the zero? A: Yes, the zero as well is an Indian invention. Q: OK, so on the other side, we have the civilization that gave the world the Koran, a few pretty mosques, and er... a few pretty mosques.
Just say NO to islam!!!!
I have heard a minerit and it gives me the creeps. Awful sound that call to prayer! Don’t know how the Israelis live with them.
Even the koran is a ripoff.
The problem with Islam is that it attracts the most stupid and violent of males. No religion can contribute much with a high percentage of stupid and violent males.
Apparently, it attracts stupid and violence-supportinbg females, also.
Sanscript? Who wrote this, a third grader?
No. Civilization against barbarism.
The Qur’an apparently comes in part from Arian sources, according to one who knew, St. John of Damascus:
This shows why the Holy Fathers of the First Ecumenical Council and their successors were so hyper about Arianism. It was downright life-threatening, as shown by the behavior of the Visigoth Arians in Spain, and even more so by islam.
But the main source of the Qur’an was Satan himself, as even Muhammad knew when the demon nearly squeezed him to death in the cave. But Muhammad’s wife Khadijah convinced him that the demon was an angel. Once that happened, Muhammad (and his followers) labored under the delusion that his rants were delivered to him by Archangel Gabriel, and the movement known as islam was launched.
