(READ FIRST: Some jerk posted this pic... Another person wrote this awesome response that gives us hope) Yes, lets imagine a world WITHOUT MUSLIMS, shall we? Without Muslims you wouldn’t have: - Coffee - Cameras - Experimental Physics - Chess - Soap - Shampoo - Perfume/spirits - Irrigation - Crank-shaft, internal combustion engine, valves, pistons - Combination locks - Architectural innovation (pointed arch -European Gothic cathedrals adopted this technique as it made the building much stronger, rose windows, dome buildings, round towers, etc.) - Surgical instruments - Anesthesia - Windmill - Treatment of Cowpox - Fountain pen - Numbering system - Algebra/Trigonometry - Modern Cryptology - Crystal glasses - Carpets - Checks - University - Optics - Toothbrush - Hospitals - Bathing - Quilting - Mariner’s Compass - Soft drinks - Pendulum - Braille - Cosmetics - Plastic surgery - Calligraphy - Manufacturing of paper and cloth It was a Muslim who realized that lightENTERS our eyes, unlike the Greeks who thought weEMITTED rays, and so invented a camera from this discovery. It was a Muslimwho first tried to FLY in 852, even though it is the Wright Brothers who have taken the credit. It was a Muslimby the name of Jabir ibn Hayyan who was known as the founder of modernChemistry. He transformed alchemy into chemistry. He invented: distillation, purification, oxidation, evaporation, and filtration. He also discovered sulfuric and nitric acid. It is a Muslim, by the name of Al-Jazari who is known as the father of robotics. It was a Muslimwho was the architect for Henry V’s castle. It was a Muslimwho invented hollow needles to suck cataracts from eyes, a technique still used today. It was a Muslimwho actually discovered inoculation, not Jenner and Pasteur to treat cowpox. The West just brought it over from Turkey It was Muslimswho contributed much to mathematics like AlgebraandTrigonometry, which was imported over to Europe 300years later to Fibonnaci and the rest. It was Muslimswho discovered that the Earthwas round 500years before Galileo did. The list goes on……….. Just imagine a world without Muslims. Now I think you probably meant, JUST IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT TERRORISTS. And then I would agree, the world would definitely be a better place without those pieces of filth. But to hold a whole group responsible for the actions of a few is ignorant and racist. No one would ever expect Christians or White people to be held responsible for the acts of Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma bombing) or Andreas Brevik (Norway killing), or the gun man that shot Congresswoman Giffords in head, wounded 12 and killed 6 people, and rightly so because they had nothing to do with those incidents! Just like the rest of the 1.5 billion Muslims have nothing to do with this incident!

"The greatest way to serve God is by having good relationships with humanity. We cannot serve God if we cannot relate to human beings in a positive way."

"I was expecting garbage. It's Canadian and there haven't been a whole lot of Canadian productions that have wow'd me. But well done!"

Canada's Most Listened To Spiritual Talk Show

"Religion" gets attached to things like ritual, commitment, institution, & organization

"Spiritual" gets attached to things like freedom, mysticism, relationship, & connection.

What is your take? Are you spiritual but not religious? Religious but not spiritual? Both? Neither?
