Why are Muslims backwards in science?



Today, today, the Muslims are getting backward in science. You know why? The Europeans are being advanced. You know why? The Muslims are becoming backwards because the are going away from the Holy Qur'an. They are going away from their religion.

[applause]

And do you know why the Europeans are getting advanced? They too are going away from their religion. The Europeans [applause] are also getting advanced [inaudible] they are going away from their religion. The Muslims, they are going backwards because they are going away from religion.

I would request, the Muslims [inaudible], as were non-Muslims. They are people in the Qur'an. Why don't we read the Qur'an, with understanding? Why don't we point out the verses? We have only kept the Qur'an kissing and keeping on top that's all. The Qur'an was not meant to just be kissed and kept on top. It should be implemented in your daily life.

[applause]

If you implement the Qur'an in your daily life, read it with understanding, insha'allah again we shall be on top of the world. I hope that answers your question.

The reason why the muslim world went from scientific leaders to non-entities is to be found in their adherence to the dogma of their faith.
The reason why the catholic countries of Europe fell behind the more protestant northern countries is to be found in their adherence to the dogma of their faith via the three inquisitions.
A few authors have highlighted this adherence to dogma as a reason for stifled development in many countries and civilisations. For a non-European/western example see Easter Island.
The USA needs to be worried because their fundies value and promote stupidity and ignorance in the name of their god.

The Muslim world has never been a scientific leader.

Indeed, crushing anyone who points out disparities between black, white and hispanic IQ certainly bodes badly for the future.
