"Science Cannot Bring Happiness to Man"
No, science can bring happiness to man in a way religion cannot. Science pulls the wool from man's eyes and empowers him to objectively observe the world, to come to his own conclusions and to assert himself as an independent political being. Science grants freedom because it and its economic offspring, Capitalism, tears apart the old power structures and creates the foundation for a world order based on individualism, freedom and political equality for all people. Religion is the exact opposite of that.

How does Islam view the Western Civilization? I think we already know, and I know we don't really care anymore. A theocracy of Islam (submission) is so great! You get to wear a tablecloth all day, recite five meaningless memorized prayers a day, fast a whole month, give up bacon and ham, live in an impoverished 6th century world while your leaders live it up good, send your sons and daughters on suicide missions to murder infidels, cover your wives and daughters from head to toe in ugly drapes, and lie, cheat, and kill while getting away with it. WHERE DO I SIGN UP???!!!!
