Since he likes reading KP should try Avicenna/İbn Sina.

And/or Al-Farabî. There are others but this will suffice for now.

Interesting stuff D., but I cannot see any relation of scientific advances to Islam. :?

I was merely ttempting to show a 'bridge' between Classical knowledge and Medieval.

For what you ask for begin counting one to ten. Write them down and tell me what you see.

As a point of genuine interest could you write down the Ancient Greek numerals for me. Thanks.

Well, nothing confusing as far as I can see. You (pl.) gave up the Greek numerals for the Arabic numerals used all over the world - well almost. Lol

Islam, the Greeks and the Scientific Revolution
ASSYRIAN INTERNATIONAL NEWS AGENCY
By Fjordman
I have written a couple of essays regarding the Greek impact on the rise of modern science, and why the Scientific Revolution didn't happen in the Islamic world. I find this to be an interesting topic, especially since there are so many myths regarding this perpetrated by Muslims and their apologists today, so I will explore the subject in some detail
