Yes, lets imagine a world WITHOUT MUSLIMS, shall we?
Without Muslims you wouldn’t have:
Crank-shaft, internal combustion engine, valves, pistons
Architectural innovation (pointed arch -European Gothic cathedrals adopted this technique as it made the building much stronger, rose windows, dome buildings, round towers, etc.)
Treatment of Cowpox
3 course meal (soup, meat/fish, fruit/nuts)
Gardens used for beauty and meditation instead of for herbs and kitchen.
- Mariner’s Compass
- Soft drinks
- Plastic surgery
- Manufacturing of paper and cloth
It was a Muslim who realized that light ENTERS our eyes, unlike the Greeks who thought we EMITTED rays, and so invented a camera from this discovery.
It was a Muslim who first tried to FLY in 852, even though it is the Wright Brothers who have taken the credit.
It was a Muslim by the name of Jabir ibn Hayyan who was known as the founder of modern Chemistry. 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 Muslim who was the architect for Henry V’s castle.
It was a Muslim who invented hollow needles to suck cataracts from eyes, a technique still used today.
It was a Muslim who actually discovered inoculation, not Jenner and Pasteur to treat cowpox. The West just brought it over from Turkey
It was Muslims who contributed much to mathematics like Algebra and Trigonometry, which was imported over to Europe 300 years later to Fibonnaci and the rest.
It was Muslims who discovered that the Earth was round 500 years 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!
And once again, learning more from tumblr than school and forcefully accepted understandings of the world
Damn it I was just talking about this
this is probably the best thing i’ve ever reblogged.
If you don’t get this reference, you’re too young for tumblr.
are you fucking kidding me pixar puts out a movie ever year a baby would get this reference
it’s not pixar it’s a reference to that time in 1994 when lamps became sentient humanoids
many were lost that day
It was a grim day for mankind. My parents took refuge in a cave and thus saved us from certain death; we lived close to a lamp factory at the time and the surrounding region was utterly devastated in the conflict.
My brother fought one off using only an egg whisk and a pogo stick.
Only 90s kids remember the Lampocalypse
My father still has the scars from where one stole his kidney
robert has the best smile out of the whole avengers cast
I can’t hear you
over his glorious smile
are you sure
to play this game?
I am very sure
That this game
Is already lost
oh so we’re going pg-13 now?
hmm too bad robert
is lacking in that area
meanwhile Ruffalo fans are over here like
Come on now guys, they
OH MY GOD HAHAHA
OMYGOD!!! THIS LITERALLY- I AM CRYING!!! X’DDDD
I FUCKING LOVE JEREMY RENNER.
Hi all of you need to read this now.
Currently I make resin skull jewelry which I’ve been selling in my etsy shop Skullery for a few years now. I’d like to expand and start producing a line of silver and bronze jewelry. I’ve spent the past 6 months learning how to make them and producing the examples you see here (and there’s more on the Kickstarter page).
Now I need your help! The equipment I need to cast these pieces isn’t cheap, so I need enough people interested in my work in order for me to buy the tools I need and start production.
I’d like to spread this as far as I can, so this post also doubles as a giveaway! Reblog this post to enter, no need to follow me, and when the project ends on June 1st I’ll pick three winners randomly for a bronze crow claw necklace, a bronze fox claw necklace, and a silver mini sparrow necklace (check out the project page to see them!). The first winner will have first choice, and so on. I have these pieces already made so even if the kickstarter isn’t funded you’ll still get them. And if you back the kickstart and win we’ll make sure you don’t get the same thing twice if you don’t want to.
Thanks for taking a look! If you cant back the project but want to help, spread the word! <3
☼ Hufflepuff Common Room
“It was round, earthy and low-ceilinged; it always felt sunny, and its circular windows had a view of rippling grass and dandelions. There was a lot of burnished copper about the place, and many plants, which either hang from the ceiling or sat on the windowsills. The overstuffed sofas and chairs were upholstered in yellow and black, and the dormitories were reached through round doors in the walls of the common room. Copper lamps cast a warm light over the four-poster beds, which were covered in patchwork quilts, and small copper bed warmers hung on the walls, in case of cold feet.”
