I’m not equating Europeans to Islamists. I just don’t agree the middle ages were anything but a dirty nasty diseased filled period of history. Much of that was caused by war with Islam.

Got a source for the baby parts thing?

Dirty, nasty and diseased filled sounds more like a Python movie than any medieval literature I’ve read. Have you read much from the time period? I’m not trying to be combative here, I’m just wondering where your impression came from.

This was the civilization that invented the Gothic cathedral and the University.
