Turkish Minister - Moslem Scholars - The Earth is Round

Well, dear oh dear, oh dear, this one has to go into the Jokes section as another Turkish Minister rushes to join Mad Dog Erdogan by making a fool of himself with a re-write of the history of Science with a claim that the discovery that the Earth is a sphere was first made by Moslem scholars.

He also doesn't know too much about the contributions Galileo made to the body of Science.

Did you hear that Sheestro...??? The Earth is round, don't you be falling off.

From http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/muslim ... sCatID=338

"... Turkey's Science, Industry and Technology Minister has said the fact that the Earth is a sphere was first discovered by a group of Muslim scientists.

Speaking at a reception for businessmen in the central Anatolian province of Konya late Nov 28, Minister Fikri Işık stressed the contributions of the Islamic world to science throughout history. "Some 700-800 years before Galileo, 71 Muslim scientists led by al-Khwarizmi convened by the order of the Caliph Al-Ma'mun and revealed that the Earth is a sphere," he said. Işık added that a copy of the original document is currently in the Museum of Islamic Science and Technology in Istanbul. ..."

The names are Arabic, and so many years before Galileo the Turks were still in their home range in Mongolia.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

The concept of a spherical Earth dates back to ancient Greek philosophy from around the 6th century BC,[1] but remained a matter of philosophical speculation until the 3rd century BC, when Hellenistic astronomy established the spherical shape of the earth as a physical given.

When did the idiot say the Muslims forged their silly 'science'? :lol:
