In a story about an Egyptian commercial, this snippet about someone whom muslims consider to be a Scientist:
Ibn Firnas, a Muslim Berber scientist who died in 887, is said to have jumped from a height, wings attached and covered head to toe in feathers, in a failed attempt at flying, although he survived the jump.
So, it’s Science to cover oneself head to toe in feathers & jump from a (moderate) height…… I guess that explains the tecnological level of muslim countries right there.
Now, in case you think I’m exaggerating the muslims’ reverence for said “scientist”,
… [they] took to the social networking sites Facebook and Twitter to complain about what they said was an insult to the historic Islamic figure.
