The dinocrat poses the question, "How does the modern world look when you have done nothing to help create it, and innovation is a threat to cherished beliefs?"
The blog points out that America patents hundreds of thousands of inventions a year whereas the entire Muslim world has only a handful in its entire history.
dinocrat goes on:
"Remember this pathetic performance the next time some bonehead tries to argue cultural equivalency to you. How dare these people try to impose their ways on us, or dictate anything about the way we should live. Theirs is a formula for poverty, stagnation and misery. Imagine: over a billion people, and they have fewer patents in their entire recorded history than did the citizens of Utah last year".
But I have to disagree. There are many, many creative inventions in Islam, but they are unrecorded because most simply do not apply for a patent.
For instance, there is the very clever and portable Microsoft customer-service-center made from an old scissor sharpening platform. [Note. this is a Pakistani customer service rep not a Hindu]
Then there is the "Here's a toast to Saddam" instant urinal invented by Iraqis just for use by US troops.
Who can forget that great innovation by the Saudis to put parking spaces for camels at the airport to detect terrorists? It would work in America as well.
Very few Americans even know that Mohammed had anticipated that many Anglo-saxons would not understand Arabic and made an English translation of the Qur'an 1300 years ago!!
The title is a literal translation of the meaning of the word Qur'an. To read more click on image.
And what about this advanced Palestinian car-locking system with no visible code-keypad? I know what you're thinking: "Dang if thet arnt the cleverest thang!"
How can any American invention compare to the very first economical hands-free cellphone invented in French-speaking Algeria?
Here's the recently Pakistani-invented Ronald McDonald tree swing for children. An instant lighting barbecue version is also available for block parties, parades, and any other gathering where 20,000 of your friends show up for fun and gaiety.
I could go on for minutes, but you get the point.
Islam spreads its hatred using the very tools and technology that they never created, will never create, and have no interest in creating. After Arabs invented the concept of zero (with the help of the Hindus) - they went on to create precisely that: zero.
They pray 5 times a day. What for? They have nothing but their Honor. And since it is their only possession they are willing to kill you over it for any presumed slight. They will kill their own wives and daughters for any insult to it. They would destroy the whole of Western Culture and Civilization for 'Honor' even though they do not understand how the world came to be the way it is and what environment is necessary for creative genius to flourish. Their religion has kept them in the same dark ages from which it sprang.
As an excuse of why they are so backward they blame everyone and everything but the Qur'an. They blame the Crusades on Christianity, the destruction of the Great Ottoman Empire on Europe and the United States, and the vast, barren desert sands of Arabia on Zionists who stole the only garden and oasis in the entire Middle East. If Israel is a football, Pan-Arabia/Islam is the stadium; but their honor cannot stand this theft of so much land from their hegemony.
