Pagan Inventions. Islamic Inventions? or unscientific myth
Avicenna had to live in hiding as a heratic persicuted by by the Islamic Caliph. Empires allowed an international stability in which cultures exchanged ideas and the islamic caliphate was no exception.
They could patron the 'unproductive' which lead to a higher, less immidiate, production of technology. under islam science was slowly suppressed in advancing and was hijacked leading to a stagnation that allowed the revivial of paganism in europe to over-take the caliphates. This is dispite the location of the islamic caliphates as a bridge to India and China, and the inheritance of pagan science from such ancient civilizatins as Egypt, Babylon (Iraq), Assyria (Syria) and Persia! (Iran).
The Museums of Science and Technology have become uncritical and ignorent of checking facts.
This is Political Hijacking.
20 Islamic Invention errors.
"according to the maronite monk Antonius Faustus Naironus (1635 - 1707 AD), differs somewhat from the above tale. In "De saluberrima potione Cahue, seu Cafe nuncupata discursus" (1671) he writes, that a herdsman complained to the Prior of a nearby monastery in Abyssinia [Etheopia, Africa], that his animals could not sleep. Two monks, together with the herdsman, were sent by their superior to investigate what it was the animals were eating. They discovered coffee plants which they took back to the monastery, where they brewed a beverage from its fruits. They passed the whole night in pleasant conversation, without any fatigue. Undoubtedly, the evidence shows that it were Christian monks who first cultivated the coffee plant and prepared the beverage from its roasted beans.
"As recently as 1993 the supreme religious authority of Saudi Arabia Sheik Abdul-Aziz Ibn Baaz declared "The earth is flat. Whoever claims it is round is an atheist deserving of punishment."
and in October 2007 on Al-Fayhaa TV in Iraq, a Muslim scientist also declared that the Earth is flat as evidenced by Qur'anic verses and that the Sun is much smaller than the Earth and revolves around it. [78
"These past few years have seen many inventions falsely claimed and attributed to Islamic inventors, which in fact either existed in pre-Islamic eras, were invented by other cultures, or both. However, this detail has not halted Muslim, and non-Muslim apologists alike, from perpetuating these false claims in order to counter the painfully obvious fact that scientific and literary progress is slow or stagnant in the Islamic world specifically due to the Islamic faith and its restrictions upon adherents, or as a backhanded attempt to belittle the West and its historical heritage. Unbelievably, such claims, which are basically altering the worlds history in order to show Islam in a better light, have even been forced upon the unsuspecting public in a nationwide tour which opened with an exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester and the University of Manchester, England in 2006. Should not a museum and a university search out and preserve the truth instead of helping sites like MuslimHeritage.com perpetuate lies and robbing other cultures of the recognition they rightfully deserve? To celebrate this 'momentous' series of events, an article titled “How Islamic inventors changed the world” was written by Paul Vallely and published in The Independent on the 11th of March 2006. This shameless piece of propaganda has received much praise from Muslims and has been widely circulated on Islamic websites, forums, blogs, and is even used as a source (to validate false claims of Islamic inventions) in over twenty separate articles on Wikipedia.
