Quotes

Dawkins' tweet did acknowledge that "they (Muslims) did great things in the middlemiddle ages ". Clearly, the history of humanity is not just 100 years old. It did not begin with the launch of Nobels in 1901. It stretches much further back. The defining work of Muslims in earlier centuries (8th to 13th century) built the foundation on which modern science and today's Nobel Laureates stand. It included development of decimal number system (still called Arabic numerals), Algebra (Al-Khwarizmi), the concepts of scientific method (Al Biruni) and algorithms (Al Khwarizmi), first camera (Al Haitham), Medicine (Avicenna), first human flight (Ibn Firnas), astrolabe (Al Frazari), etc."
"It is a serious situation when all you need to do to carry out a terrorist attack is to have a knife, an iPhone and a victim" says the Prime Minister (''Terror laws used to hold suspects'', 20/9). Yet there was in fact no victim and no terrorist attack...
...that was discovered in any way conflicted with Scripture and quoted an ecclesiastical historian, Cardinal Baronius (1538-1607), who had commented: "The Holy Ghost intended to teach us how to go to heaven, not how the heavens go." This clever riposte did not save him. As Whitehouse points out:
“It’s in the back pages of the pamphlet, as if they said, "Here's what we did during our meetings, and oh, by the way, we decided to declare our independence from England,’ ” Johnson said. “It was the first chance many people got to read the document.”"
