I would be interested to hear an orthodox view about, my thoughts on the Prof. Gouguenheim book, and the latest fashion in finding "the roots" of modern civilization in Islam.

P.S.
I posted a link, because my article is very big and contains many links.

Clearly the communist, who was simultaneously born in Kenya and Indonesia and faithful Muslim (trained at madresa no less) is behind this.

Not Orthodox, but fwiw I would generally avoid people who say things like: "If it had not been for Christianity, humanity would have colonised the universe by now." Thankfully I had not heard that statement till I read your blog post. I have heard claims like we would be terraforming Mars by now had Islam not gone all anti-science at the end of the 11th century, but rather had continued on the course it had been on in the several previous centuries. That sounds plausible to me, albeit too speculative to be anything more than a "gee wouldn't it have been great if..." type of daydream.

you're a fast reader, in reality, as I explained in the article a group of atheists is "behind this".

^Thunderfoot is much like Dawkins: more than competent at his scientific specialty, and a good explainer of it, but tends to stumble when he makes attempts at going into other fields. However, that video is fairly mild IMO (and I just went through all his old "Why do people laugh at creationists" videos this past week, so that one was fresh in my mind).
