Richard Dawkins’ Islam
Problem and Ours

PJ Media, by Roger L Simon

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/10/2013 9:41:38 AM

Over the last few days, militant atheist author Professsor Richard Dawkins has caused an uproar with a Tweet that transcended the bounds of Twitter and made it into the (mostly British) mainstream media. Dawkins tweeted: “All the world’s Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge. They did great things in the Middle Ages, though.” I had once considered tweeting something similar — that the inventions of Jewish doctors had saved more Islamic lives than all the imams in history put together — but

Comments:
I will never understand how the leftists in the world will not acknowledge the murder and mayhem committed by radical Islamists. It´s as if all sense of reason is gone in the name of political correctness.

And the typical Islamist reaction to such a statement is to threaten the speaker with anything from maiming to death.
They cannot abide any perception that they might just be violent for the sake of being violent. They cloak all in the veil of an individuals interpretation of religiosity.

C K Chesterton once observed that natives that were the descendents of Great Empires were probably the deficient leftovers and were missing some essential character trait for achievement. Else, they would be great today.

"Bashing Christianity is fair game but bashing Islam is not. For Dawkins or just about anybody else."

Bingo.

Islam must purge its radicals before I will consider it a true religion. Right now, it is more a political cancer like Communism. Believe what you want, but leave the rest of us the h*ll alone.

So Dawkins is an equal opportunity religion basher. While I think bashing any religion is dumb because it is futile (you can´t disprove the existence of God), that makes me feel better about Dawkins, at least he doesn´t just have a thing about Christianity. Islam is more than a religion though, it´s a theocracy with a set of really disturbing rules which it wishes to impose on everyone. There isn´t any problem in attacking Islamic theocracy, it abides slavery, demotes infidels to almost non human status, reduces women to chattel, condones pedophilia, promotes honor killing and is worse than most tyrannies in that it specifies almost every detail of a persons life. There isn´t much voluntary in Islam except maybe strapping explosives to your body and blowing up infidels.

Even the west´s Dark Ages lasted no where near the millennium plus of the Muslim world. Is there currently a single world class university in an Islamic country? Seemingly, they gave us the ´zero´ and have been resting on their laurels ever since.

Islam destroyed more science and knowledge than they ever created. The burning of the great library at Alexandria comes to mind.

#7, I believe it was the Romans who burned the library at Alexandria to the ground. But, that doesn´t take away from the fact that a "religion" that follows the teachings of a warrior is not a religion of peace.

#5 ~ The Dark Age(s) began some time in the Spring of 535 AD (based on dendrochronology).

The Dark Age(s) ended at different times.

The causes are apparently a variety of things ranging from a near miss with a comet or asteroid, an abrupt change in the climate in much of the Northern hemisphere, Icelandic volcanic eruptions (spewing fluorides), Indonesian volcanic eruptions, Alaskan volcanic eruptions, Black Death, Hanta Virus outbreak, and on and on ~ could be any one of those things, some of them, or even ALL of them!

The farther North you go, the worse it was. Go South and it wasn´t so bad. The Arabian peninsula escaped with little damage ~ Byzantium suffered a good 80 years without any works of art. German civilizations just disappeared, and only the island Celts to the West survived in any fashion. Central Asia died, and the Tang moved the court to South China for at least 300 years.

Japan, Korea, Ireland, and in time, the Sapma PROSPERED. So did the Arabs in Arabia (called TRUE ARABS)

The condition you referred to as a Dark Age for Islam is actually a Dark Age for Arabs which is counted from the arrival of the Seluk Turks in the 1000s to 1920. There´s another sort of Super Dark Age in Arabic speaking areas where the Mongols arrived in the 1200/1300 ~ 1258 featured the total destruction of Baghdad.

#13 ~ The Chicoms also claim zero ~

The Sumerians might well have beat all of them to the punch back in the days when they reduced accounting to ´writing´ ~ thereby preparing the basis or written law and interesting stories that´d have a long shelf life.

Their base 60 numeric system definitely had some advantages.

There are also signs that even they were beaten by the ancients over 12,000 years ago at Gobekli Tepe ~ but that´ll take more digging.

#8, according to one online source (OSU.EDU), it was the Romans, the Christians, or the Muslims ...

The final individual to get blamed for the destruction is the Moslem Caliph Omar. In 640 AD the Moslems took the city of Alexandria. Upon learning of "a great library containing all the knowledge of the world" the conquering general supposedly asked Caliph Omar for instructions. The Caliph has been quoted as saying of the Library´s holdings, "they will either contradict the Koran, in which case they are heresy, or they will agree with it, so they are superfluous."

Since the Muslims recently (earlier this year) managed to destroy 4000 documents at the library at Timuktu - my money is on the Muslims for Alexandria also.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced

Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

The Terrifying Implications of

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

President Obama is scheduled to meet with health insurance executives and state insurance commissioners on Thursday, just two days after ObamaCare´s special enrollment period officially closed. The meetings, which will include at least one photo-op, are a chance for the White House to telegraph unity with health insurance companies and state regulators involved with the rollout of the healthcare law. The announcement of new enrollment figures was also expected separately on Thursday. It is possible Obama could reveal the numbers before one of the two meetings. Total exchange enrollment is likely to have risen since last week, when Health and Human Services Secretary

Breckenridge, Colo. - A contentious eminent domain case in which a local government sought to take private backcountry land for open space has been settled, with the landowners agreeing to a $115,000 sale. "To me, what just came out of it is, you can´t win, you can´t fight the government," landowner Ceil Barrie said Wednesday. She and her husband, Andy, owned ten acres of land perched at 11,000 feet elevation in Breckenridge. The property, with breathtaking views, was a private patch of land surrounded by White River National Forest. An old, uninhabited day-use cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold

So the network that long employed a Cuomo and still employs a Clinton "bimbo" destroyer has formalized a relationship with a conservative pundit. To the Left, this is yet another example of the mainstream media attempting to compensate for a liberal bias which never was significant and vanished altogether roughly forty years ago. They want no debate. In a Tuesday piece for Salon, Heather Digby Parton, who blogs at her own site under the name Digby, asserted that the conservative claim of liberal media bias is "absurd"

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
