Well, 2015 was a banner year for Muslim Nobel laureates. For the fifth time in over a hundred years, a Muslim (possibly) has won a Nobel Prize. Aziz Sancar, a Turkish-American biochemist and molecular biologist specializing in DNA repair was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2015.
I say possibly because in his Wiki page the word "Muslim" does not appear and he states, "I am a Turk, that's it."
But since Islamic winners of Nobel prizes for science or literature are scarcer than men who've walked on the moon, let's give them the benefit of the doubt. I discount the Peace Prize, which they've won a few times, because we all know that the Peace Prize is a joke since it isn't based on anything intellectual, just political.
I've included some helpful images of the inventions by Muslims that advanced the human condition and modern civilization by leaps and bounds.
Top--As nomadic Muslims came in from the maddening sun they realized they needed to tell time indoors so they invented this indoor sun dial....brilliant!
Bottom--And for the absent-minded Islamic scientist in hot pursuit of a Nobel Prize who, when inspiration strikes, cannot find anything with which to write it down, here is the Pen-Finder device.
