    Obama, NASA, and Muslims

    I have heard that Obama charged NASA with something like recognizing the accomplishments of Muslims in space research or some such crap. Has any Muslim nation ever had any advances in any STEM field?

    Explosives, but then again their knowledge is rather rudimentary.

    Ismail al-Jazari:

    Al-Jazari was part of a tradition of artisans and was thus more a practical engineer than an inventor who appears to have been "more interested in the craftsmanship necessary to construct the devices than in the technology which lay behind them" and his machines were usually "assembled by trial and error rather than by theoretical calculation." His Book of Knowledge of Ingenious Mechanical Devices appears to have been quite popular as it appears in a large number of manuscript copies, and as he explains repeatedly, he only describes devices he has built himself. According to Mayr, the book's style resembles that of a modern "do-it-yourself" book.

    When I attended a university, I noticed that there were a lot of middle eastern (Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Turkey) and Chinese graduate students in a certain STEM major (but not space related). We teach them and they take that info with them back to their respective countries.
    The Social Security number is a bigger threat to Liberty than Communism or ISIS.
    Isn't it strange that we don't require our policemen to attend law school?

    Does that knowledge get carried forward there?

    They have universities, are they effective?

    Even that is debatable...

    How Muslims Did Not Invent Algebra
    Continuing on the theme of what Muslims did - or more likely did not do - for the world, there is a widespread misconception that they "invented algebra". Maybe this fallacy is due to the fact that "algebra" is a word of Arabic origin, but historical questions are not solved by etymological answers.

    Yes, the English word "algebra" derives from the Arabic. So does "sugar" (from the Arabic "sukkar") but that doesn't mean that Muslims invented sugar.

    Mohammedan civilization in its great days was admirable in the arts and in many technical ways, but it showed no capacity for independent speculation in theoretical matters.

    There are various attempts at historical revisionism as far as Islamic contributions to the world are concerned. These attempts are more political propaganda than academic scholarship. After all, taqiyya, lying to the infidels to advance Allah's cause, is permitted, and even prescribed, to Muslims, and jihad does not just consist in violent aggression or terror attacks: it can be gradual, by stealth, through indoctrination and false reassurance.

    1001 Muslim Myths and Historical Revisions
    Many of the inventions the Muslims take credit for are the inventions of the peoples, countries and lands they conquered. The booty from their conquests wasn’t only tangible gold, women, and monies, but intellectual theft as well.

    Musloids figured out that goat intestines could be used for birth control.

    1000 years later, the Brits actually took them out of the goat for that purpose.

    The only thing they think have invented in the last 1000 or more years is a switch to hit you with if you fall a sleep while in school or praying, everything else they have adopted from the western European world.

    NASA's Muslim Outreach
    It's not really surprising that President Obama told NASA administrator Charles Bolden that his highest priority should be "to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering." It fits with so much that we already knew about the president

    I mean... Why did no one think of this before???

    Islam has so much to teach us about the universe. Things that we have, obviously, gotten wrong...

    (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 421: Narrated Abu Dharr):

    The Prophet asked me at sunset, "Do you know where the sun goes (at the time of sunset)?" I replied, "Allah and His Apostle know better." He said, "It goes (i.e. travels) till it prostrates Itself underneath the Throne and takes the permission to rise again, and it is permitted and then (a time will come when) it will be about to prostrate itself but its prostration will not be accepted, and it will ask permission to go on its course but it will not be permitted, but it will be ordered to return whence it has come and so it will rise in the west.

    And that is the interpretation of the Statement of Allah: ĎAnd the sun Runs its fixed course for a term (decreed). That is The Decree of (Allah) The Exalted in Might, The All-Knowing
    .í" (36.38)

    He did, and a lot of other stupid crap to boot. But Trump can't order a Happy Meal without some judge or other saying NO! And everybody and their mother goes along with the judge. Strange how stuff works, ain't it?

    Let’s not sell them short just yet;

    A teacher was arrested today at John F. Kennedy International Airport as he
    attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a
    compass, a slide-rule and a calculator.

    At a morning press conference, the Attorney General said he believes the
    man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement. He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.

    "Al-Gebra is a problem for us," the Attorney General said. "They derive
    solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute values." They use secret code names like 'X' and 'Y' and refer to themselves as "unknowns", but we have determined that they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country.

    As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, 'There are 3 sides to every triangle'.

    When asked to comment on the arrest, President Obama said, "If God had
    wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, he would have given us more fingers and toes." White House aides told reporters they could not
    recall a more intelligent or profound statement by the President. It is
    believed that the Nobel Prize for Physics will follow.
