Well, several pages ago, the comment was raised that the West had a Renaissance - and "Enlightenment" where they pulled themselves from the darkness of the uneducated and backward times that were the, "Dark Ages". The question was then raised as to when the Arabic nations would have their own Renaissance. Your immediate response was to begin listing some truly amazing discoveries that the Arabs had... but never actually answering the question.

So when will the Arabic enlightenment happen? The previous post was quite clear about my question, and I even assisted you for when it failed to occur. That would have been, ANY TIME IN THE PAST. So... your answer?

So how are you expecting this rennaisance and enlightenment to be flagged up for your convenience? You want the Arabic Nations to give you a plan and end date for it so you can get on with the rest of your day?

Considering this happened over a span of 300 years or more in The West and is still developing to this day when do you think our project will be finished?

How do you know the Arab Nations are not going through their modern equivalent of the Enlightenment right now? Oh yes, you don't, because the people involved in the Enlightenment in Europe at the time didn't know that what they were going through was "The Enlightenment". D'uh.

Well, until 'the West' (or Europe) of that time obliterated it, the Arabs age of 'enlightenment' happened around a millenia ago. In fact, it was largely due to their own 'enlightenment', as you call it, that our own civilisations came into being - so you (we), actually have their ancestors to thank for our modern day life. If it hadn't been for our ancestors' own actions, the world would likely be a far more technologically advanced place.

Now, if you feel like holding a grudge over the fact that, due to hundreds of years of suppression, enslavement, and occupation by one force or another (most notably Europe) - preventing their development - they are now around 100 years behind the general definition of modern civilisation - through no fault of their own (collectively) - then you can continue to be petty, narrow-minded and simply ignorant if you wish.

The problem is that you don't seem to realise is that science has yet to whip their religion in line. Do you not think that if the Vatican could get away with it, they would have all of the old laws and myths still in effect? And in fact, though they (the Arabs) are roughly 100 years behind our moral developments and otherwise, they are actually progressing a lot faster than we did ourselves - and if it wasn't for Britain, France and the U.S., then they would have already shed their backwardsness in favour of democracy, freedom and all the trimmings. We are the ones who have stunted democracy and modernisation in that part of the World. To hear you then try to lay blame on the Arabs is quite ridiculous.

Your post is ignorant of so many truths that it is actually scary.
