The religion didn't invent anything you tosser, people who follow the religion did.

And some of the things mentioned there are wrong.


Would you call cell phones, the internet, shoes, televisions, wrist-watch Christian inventions?

Using the Huffington compost, a site well known for peddling liberal nonsense as evidence?

I get my news alternatively.

I don't listen to bought and paid for mainstream media outlets, both liberal and conservative.

Because if the attributed inventor did not do something nobody else ever would have!

Let's see, Algebra was used by the Babylonians over a millennium before Islam
The tootbrush as we recognise it today, China, although people have been cleaning their teeth since pre-history, again, pre Islam
The Guitar, believed to be the descendant of a variety of instruments, mostly European and...
The Lute, oh what's this, once again, pre-Islam, Mesopotamia in the 4th Millennium BC at the very latest
Well, I guess you do kinda have one here in that the optics work was done originally, as far as we know, by an Arab and very likely Muslim.
Oh, now we're back to you being wrong, Hospitals existed for over a thousand years before Islam

Okay very rushed message here from me but here we go:

How selfish that you want people to think about Islam on a Christian Holiday. It's not all about you, you know.

The only thing of note here is Algebra. Everything else had existed in one form or another for thousands of years before Islam sprouted up.

Yes there was an Islamic Golden Age 800 years ago. There has been no improvement or evolution of Islam's principles since then. Just because an Arab 'invented' algebra doesn't mean we can't criticise Islam as a religion. How exactly did Islam lead to algebra's discovery anyway? - Does it mean that Christianity put men on the Moon (ofc not)?

Britain has contributed far more to the world but we don't go around telling other people to be thankful for uplifting humanity from political serfdom, pestilence and agrarianism by beginning the industrial revolution.

First Council of Nicea, 300 years before Islam, declared all Cathedral Cities should have a hospital, and they weren't even the originals, again, going to a museum, but if you think that Islam loving media is more reliable so be it http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/brou...emes/hospitals

Algebra: no
Toothbrush: don't know but this took a lot of forms and the modern one isn't.
Lute: no
Glasses: not invented, stated that it was later developed from knowledge made by Alhazen
Hospitals: depends on what you would consider a hospital


Congrats you managed to whip up some lists from random news sources, how about legitimate sources?

Even though that list is complete fiction, it's stupid how we can say Islam is responsible for good things, but not for bad things.

I'm not a Muslim. I'm just a tolerant person. Its not all about you, either. The UK should treat all religions equally, but Christianity still gets pretty much all the holidays. Easter is a time for Christians to celebrate their God (the same God that Muslims celebrate), and to wish others, even non-Christians, well. Promoting this message, that Islamic culture is not all about terrorism, is not selfish.

And you British do; you constantly talk about the british empire as though it was the greatest force for good that ever existed...

You have been proven wrong by multiple people but im also going to prove you wrong
Algebra existing years before Islam although a muslim called Al-Khwarizmi were involved in algebra but He did not " Invent Algebra so you are sort of right
The bristle toothbrush, similar to the type used today, was not invented until 1498 in China. The bristles were actually the stiff, coarse hairs taken from the back of a hog's neck and attached to handles made of bone or bamboo.
Again The toothbrush was created in China in 1498
The Earliest of hospitals were " invented " long. before the medieval Islamic period
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_hospitals
Guitar
Evolved from the lute
Before the development of the electric guitar and the use of synthetic materials, a guitar was defined as being an instrument having "a long, fretted neck, flat wooden soundboard, ribs, and a flat back, most often with incurved sides."[1] The term is used to refer to a number of chordophones that were developed and used across Europe, beginning in the 12th century and, later, in the Americas.[2] A 3,300-year-old stone carving of a Hittite bard playing a stringed instrument is the oldest iconographic representation of a chordophone and clay plaques from Babylonia show people playing an instrument that has a strong resemblance to the guitar, indicating a possible Babylonian origin for the guitar.[3][4]
Glasses
The first eyeglasses were made in Italy in about 1286, but it is not clear who the inventor was. Again not a Islamic invention

In high school we had to listen to stupid leftist teachers tell us Islam is peaceful, I actually believed them until I came to TSR and saw for myself.
