It’s easy, they ban women from having any say on society, so they had no female distractions so they could focus their time on faith and morals and war on anyone who’s a heretic and they bombed themselves back to the Stone Age.

There are other factors as to why jews succeeded in contributing so much to the world, they lived in the middle east during the golden age and they also migrated to europe during age of enlightenment so they absorbed the best of both worlds if u think about it

Imagine how wonderful the world would be if the Islamic world hadn’t regressed. As progressive as they were so early they could have been secularized centuries before the west had. Could you immagine if the west and the middle east were secular democratic allies rather than the ‘secularism vs thocracy’ relationship we have today?
Of course, if Islam had secularized before Christianity it might have caused Christianity to regress. There’s a possibility that in that scenario the rolls would be reversed today – where the middle east would be secular, while the west would be under Christian theocracy. Unfortunately, we’ll never know.

During the so called ‘Islamic Golden Age’ Muslims terrorized Europe, took millions of slaves and destroyed 90% of the Romans and Greeks material, exactly like whats ISIS doing right now…. it was more like a dark bloody age with nothing golden about it.
please wake up Islam is the religion of the evil….

btw from a guy studied Islamic and Arabic history. Neil is full of shit and trying to convey his believe system that religion is correlated with failure of civilizations. the guy he named actually was one of the most pro science guys back then and i advice you to read not to rely on Neil to tell u history. Second, the fall of the Arab was due to abandoning their faith back then and imersing in life .. women .. drinking and corruption, which led to their utter defeat when a real strong army attacked them that is the Mongol, the Mongol burned everything to the ground. Every single book. it must be noted that another major failure was the treason of one of the ministers.

All these Christian Americans applaud Tyson’s legitimate rebuke of Islam but little do they realize Tyson is just as worried about the stupidity of fundamentalist Christians who deny climate change or call it gods will. Those that ignore scientific progress in favor of an old book are never going to create anything useful.

Oh my Allah the right is hilarious at times.
Before Neil DeGrasse Tyson began his [climate change = we need more government] jihad, people saw him as a champion against religious fundamentalism. You can’t say one good thing about Islamic/Arab culture ever, even if it’s a fact that it was ok at one point in terms of scientific contribution? He talked about its rise and fall. Today it’s obviously destructive in its entirety, and he has talked about how stupid these people are several times. Fuck you assholes who pretend to be objective. He’s not an apologist for Islam but many people think that just because he supports government regulations that he’s some sort of SJW. Wrong.

The comments seem so off the mark. He’s making a very specific point. Earlier in its history the Islamic world encouraged and furthered the sciences and philosophic inquiry. Fundamentalism squashed it. That is a tragedy for Islam. So, lets hope that enlightened Muslim voices will prevail.

It’s funny how there’s so many people in the comments section who cannot deal with the fact that Muslims dominated science and intellectual advancement once before. You can say Muslims stole this knowledge from other people… but you can also say the same thing about any empire before and after this time. The polytheists in Greece and Rome stole ideas, the Ottomans stole ideas, the British stole ideas, the Chinese stole ideas from the Japanese etc etc. Stolen or not, we see what happens when Islam is the religion of empires. It leads to the same actions of any other religion.
Islam embraced scientific advancement. Today it doesn’t. You have to ask yourself why. Obviously, the assumption that Islam is inherently more barbaric or oppressive than the other major religions appears to be ridiculous when you look at history.
And there’s a lot of idiots saying Neil degrasse Tyson should stay in his field. Pure idiots. When you go to school and major in something like physics or mathematics you also learn the history of physics and mathematics. He’s probably more equipped to handle this than an actual historian. But I know none of this fits the popular anti-muslim xenophobic narrative.

Just to make it clear, I will only tell the truth this 1 time. The Noble Peace Prize was created by the jews, who selectively choose who wins it, and most of the awards are for fake science. NPP is propogranda.

He talks as if, being bright is a racial thing. It is not, It’s a cultural thing. 1.3 billion Muslims if turn 13 billion, under current mindset, will add 11.7 billion consumers to the world.
I am willing to bet that on average properly controlled from any ethnicity, roughly the same percent of human population turns out to be geniuses, the same turns out to be bright the same percentage will be just average consumer.
However in a culture where critical thinking is frowned upon, whether it’s KSA or the bible belt, those bright and above are quickly marginalized and forced to conformism.
Jews are not specially gifted. However they are culturally critical thinkers. That allows the bright minds among them to thrive easily.
