“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Muslim Nobel laureates, few and far between

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.

Hat tip to PlancksConstant.

Rube Goldberg would be proud of the indoor sundial. But, he was Jewish.

For the sake of argument, let's say that you are right, Ed. Let us stipulate that all Muslims, every last one of them, is too stupid to find his/her ass without a map. So what?

Ed said...

So what? So, how can a billion people contribute nothing to the advancement of modern civilization? That's sad.

And, so why is it the job of NASA now to make the world's Muslims feel good about their contributions to science, regardless of how imaginary?

And, so why is a world religion comprising a billion people so moribund in every area of human endeavor except terrorism and breeding?

Once again, so what? Muslims have no obligation to live up to your expectations. Even if all Muslims were dumb (they aren't), there is no excuse for you to act like a schoolyard bully. Do you also mock and bash cripples? How about ugly people? Poor people? Help me out here; I am trying to get a sense of how wicked and degenerate you really are.
