    You can only ‘create’ so much 7th century weaponry, for the purpose of eliminating Christians and Jews, or suppressive female garb, before you run out of ideas I guess.
    I mean someone already came up with bricks!

    • Islam invented science.

      • Gaian

        Baloney. Long before the socially retarded ideology of islam existed science was being used by advanced civilizations in China and South America. The Egyptians, prior to islamic infection, used science to erect buildings like the pyramids. islam has never contributed anything to human civilization other than a history of violent gang activity, brutality, slavery and perversion.

          I’m pretty sure he was being sarcastic.
          Odd, I know.

        Where would we be without them?

    Innovation is one of those white privileges?

  • David Murrell

    Simply not true. Islam has invented an enviro-saving alternative to toilet paper. David Suzuki appreciates that.

  • Ron MacDonald

    Fourteen hundred years of inbreeding doesn’t help much.

    • Clausewitz

      I hear banjos.

  • Martin B

    I wonder how many of those Saudi patents were for camel urine extract:

  • Dana Garcia

    Islam plus cousin marriage plus cultural disinterest in scholarship does not create a positive environment for creativity. Also, war against the infidels is time-consuming, as is prayer to Mr. Allah five times daily.

  • Surele Surele

    I’m shocked, I tell you, s h o c k e d!!!: and here I was completely convinced that all discoveries, scientific or otherwise, were the gift of Islam. You just shattered my whole beliefs system. I think I need something stronger than my afternoon tea. Like, right now.

  • fadsasdf

    Niggers don’t even count anymore as humans, according to your data.

  • Gaian

    Actually, if you want to see dumb in action you need look no farther than Saudi Arabia:

    • Clink9

      Comedy gold.

    A muzzy having a patent would mean as much as a muzzy having a “piece” prize.He purchased it, he stole it or it was a monumental clerical error! <:o)

  • I’d suggest that the patent total for China is artificially high.

    When one’s culture is tribal and wealthy to the point of vulgarity, innovation is not their thing.

    That and it is not in the Koran.
