The 1,001 Inventions Tour is a Fraud & The Golden Age is a Myth

DavidMGold
Aiham

The primary issue being debated is whether the 1,001 Muslim Inventions is a fraudulent exhibit that is historically false and falsely conflates medieval science with modern science. At issue are inventions or discoveries existing long before Islam. Secondary issues would be the erroneous claim of scientific "miracles" in the Qu'ran, the total lack of Islamic contributions to modern science, and the myth of the so-called "Golden Age" in the Islamic World....

Why do children need to get homework. I am always at work and I don't really have time to help my child. Can't they just do it in class? Then the teacher gets mad at my child for having the answers incorrect, well if you explained to her on what she has to do she would have gotten it right. I understand the importance of homework but at leas give them one she from each subject rather than five. Please comment on what you think, I am open minded on your opinions. And tell me what I should do abou...

Girl's Public School Dress Code

I believe that when you interrupt a girl's school day to force her to change clothes or to send her home because her shorts are short, and her bra straps are visible, you are telling her that hiding her body is more important than her education. You are telling her that making sure the boys have a distraction-free learning environment is more important than her education. You are telling her that boys are more entitled to an education than she is....

Minimum wage should be set automatically increased with inflation. It needs to be that way because if you are a single mother, father, or living buy your self living pay check to pay check. So if you are making $7.25 and gas eventually gets up to $5.00 per gallon. That is not enough for food, electricity, water, and phone bill. Also I would say no because the prices of most things will keep on rising. Being able to survive off a 7.25 cent budget is hard to do....
