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



Islam, the Greeks and the Scientific Revolution

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

Greek philosophy: impact on Islamic philosophy

I've scrutinised the section of classical Greece at my local library.

I've scoured the internet on Greek history.

I even asked my local priest...

... but I've yet to find any evidence of any impact of classical Greece on the Kalamares (or the Greek wannabes of Cyprus).

what nobody is yet sure of is the extent to which what is purveyed as Classical Greek knowledge is based on earlier ideas frorm the older civilisations of the Tigris and Euphrates area.

The only obvious impact is that the incompetent and opportunistic Kalamaraes have milked it for all its worth and a bunch of Cypriot fools who studied there have climbed on their bogus bandwagon and are now claiming some kind of wireless inheritance!

Pathetic! :lol:

Precisely. Because there was nothing to teach on the issue. Just your wishful thinking. And what astonishes me is how come an Oxford man like you uses guess work and wishful thinking to contradict proven historical facts. Well, I suppose, for some, every method can be used as long as it is to degrade Hellenism.
