WHY I CREATED THIS BLOG
A major reason for my starting this blog/website was my curiosity about whether the science claims made in the “1001 Inventions” traveling show — see starting at 0:30 of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZDe9DCx7Wk and on Islamic Golden Age websites are true or not. Another reason was to fact check the claims about Muslims bringing Europe out of the “Dark Ages” made at an Islam religion of peace debate May 23, 2013 at the Oxford Union debating society in Oxford, England. 42:03 through 53:50 of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joNTLaGE0wU

If I mention a non-Muslim inventing something (except for the page on the “Dark Ages”) it is because a claim was made that Muslims invented it.

PICKTHALL
My preference for quoting from the Quran (except when criticizing an inaccurate translation) is the translation done in 1936 by Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall, an Englishman who converted to Islam. He did precise translation, not adding meanings that are not present in the Arabic words of the Quran and hadith. Unlike some modern translators, he did not distort meanings to try to prove that the Quran contains scientific facts that could not have been known by the prophet Mohammed.
