Yes, lets imagine a world WITHOUT MUSLIMS, shall we?
Without Muslims you wouldn’t have:
Coffee

Cameras


Experimental Physics


Chess


Soap


Shampoo


Perfume/spirits


Irrigation


Crank-shaft, internal combustion engine, valves, pistons


Combination locks


Architectural innovation (pointed arch -European Gothic cathedrals adopted this technique as it made the building much stronger, rose windows, dome buildings, round towers, etc.)


Surgical instruments


Anesthesia


Windmill


Treatment of Cowpox


Fountain pen


Numbering system


Algebra/Trigonometry


Modern Cryptology


3 course meal (soup, meat/fish, fruit/nuts)


Crystal glasses


Carpets


Checks


Gardens used for beauty and meditation instead of for herbs and kitchen.

University
Optics
Music
Toothbrush
Hospitals
Bathing
Quilting
Mariner’s Compass
Soft drinks
Pendulum
Braille
Cosmetics
Plastic surgery
Calligraphy
Manufacturing of paper and cloth
It was a Muslim who realized that light ENTERS our eyes, unlike the Greeks who thought we EMITTED rays, and so invented a camera from this discovery.
It was a Muslim who first tried to FLY in 852, even though it is the Wright Brothers who have taken the credit.
It was a Muslim by the name of Jabir ibn Hayyan who was known as the founder of modern Chemistry. He transformed alchemy into chemistry. He invented: distillation, purification, oxidation, evaporation, and filtration. He also discovered sulfuric and nitric acid.
It is a Muslim, by the name of Al-Jazari who is known as the father of robotics.
It was a Muslim who was the architect for Henry V’s castle.
It was a Muslim who invented hollow needles to suck cataracts from eyes, a technique still used today.
It was a Muslim who actually discovered inoculation, not Jenner and Pasteur to treat cowpox. The West just brought it over from Turkey
It was Muslims who contributed much to mathematics like Algebra and Trigonometry, which was imported over to Europe 300 years later to Fibonnaci and the rest.
It was Muslims who discovered that the Earth was round 500 years before Galileo did.
The list goes on………..
Just imagine a world without Muslims. Now I think you probably meant, JUST IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT TERRORISTS. And then I would agree, the world would definitely be a better place without those pieces of filth. But to hold a whole group responsible for the actions of a few is ignorant and racist. No one would ever expect Christians or White people to be held responsible for the acts of Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma bombing) or Andreas Brevik (Norway killing), or the gun man that shot Congresswoman Giffords in head, wounded 12 and killed 6 people, and rightly so because they had nothing to do with those incidents! Just like the rest of the 1.5 billion Muslims have nothing to do with this incident!

I left my cat out in the rain for about 0.2 seconds too long, which makes for some interesting facial expressions.

Welcome to Dinovember

A month-long imagination invasion.

"Every year, my wife and I devote the month of November to convincing our children their plastic dinosaur figures come to life while they sleep.

It began modestly enough. The kids woke up to discover that the dinosaurs had gotten into a box of cereal and made a mess on the kitchen table.”

ATTENTION!
TOO ALL THOSE WHO WANT TO GO VOLUNTEER & HELP THOSE EFFECTED IN THE PHILIPPINES!

AirAsia Zest is giving free seats to volunteers from Nov. 11 - 24, 2013.

The campaign titled “To Philippines With Love”, started on Tuesday and AirAsia Zest is currently accepting accredited NGO’s (non-goverment organizations)  and volunteers who want to help victims and areas effected by Super Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan who will also be provided with free flights.

According to officials from AirAsia Zest, “AirAsia Zest is freeing up cargo space on its domestic and international flights for delivery of relief goods. For those who are keen to help, including non-governmental organizations (NGOs), civic groups, aid and humanitarian agencies as well as members of the public, please send in your requests to paa_cargo@airasia.com.”

For those who are interested in volunteering here are ways you can get more information and who to contact.

AirAsia Zest Website: http://www.airasia.com/ph/

For more information call: +632-851-1801 or +632-851-1803.

You may contact Cecille Flores, HR Department of AirAsia Zest via her email cecilleflores@airasia.com or call the numbers above and ask for her.

Or you may personally go to AirAsia Zest Office in Domestic Road, Andrews Avenue, Pasay City.

For more ways to help and donate, and updates on Super Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan and the effected areas and victims, all posts will be tagged with #typhoon haiyan, & #typhoon yolanda.

For those who want to donate to grassroots organizations where they actually directly work on the ground with victims who are effected and not organizations like the Red Cross where donations aren’t specifically for the purpose you are donating to, see and read my post here, on donating to NAFCON (National Alliance of Filipin@ Concerns) which is a non-profit organization who work closely with our Filipin@ communities here in the states, abroad, and back home in the Philippines eespecially to the poorest and most vulnerable communities.
