More indoctrination of young American children into the wonders of Islam. This one promoting the myth of Islamic scientific accomplishments.
Although there is no arguing that the Muslim world was more advanced during this period than the â€œChristianâ€ world, the reasons for this have absolutely nothing to do with the Islamic religion (other than its mandate for military expansion). In fact, the religion actively discourages knowledge outside of itself, which is why the greatest Muslim scholars throughout history tend to be students of religion rather than science.
To sum up, although the Islamic religion is not entirely hostile to science, neither should it be confused as a facilitator. The great achievements that are said to have come out of the Islamic world were made either by non-Muslims who happened to be under Islamic rule, or by heretics who usually had little interest in Islam. Scientific discovery tapers off dramatically as Islam asserts dominance, until it eventually peters out altogether.
For more of this myth read a recent post here at my blog. A new book by Physicist Taner Edis has an interrsting take on the â€˜scientific approachâ€™ of Islam. In his book â€œAn Illusion of Harmony: Science and Religion in Islamâ€ Edis examines the range of Muslim thinking about science and Islam, from blatantly pseudoscientific fantasies to comparatively sophisticated efforts to “Islamize science.”
Sultan Knish has post about the Liberty Science Center exhibition on Islamic culture.
With enough money invested the Arab and Muslim world has demonstrated the ability to take advantage of American tolerance and Western political correctness to promote their propaganda and self-glorification abroad. The Liberty Science Center exhibition is not simply about promoting a myth of Islamic culture, it is about promoting Islam. Read the following paragraph from the official Liberty Science website.
“Never before presented in North America, this important exhibition from MTE Studios in South Africa was first presented at Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It will help guests of all ages understand how the flowering of Islam led to a new kind of prosperity across large areas of the known world, from Spain to China.”
Note that what is mentioned is specifically the flowering of Islam as bringing prosperity across the world. Never mind the millions dead, the religions and cultures crushed and suppressed. They of course go unmentioned.
You’ll even visit a re-created Souk, an Arabic market, as part of your introduction to the Islamic world.
Which of course is the real agenda. Not promoting science. But “introducing your kids to the Islamic world” which the Arab money behind the exhibition intends to have them join down the road.
That this propaganda has been repeatedly aimed and targeted at Western children, whether through schools or now a children’s educational museum, bespeaks the cowardly and cunning nature of the enemy intent on brainwashing our children when they cannot get to the adults and those adults in charge at the Liberty Science Center and at schools who allow this promotion of Islamic supremacism.
Twisting history to meet one’s agenda is an old Leftist trick well learned by the Islamists of today.
