It's a human rights issue. Does not matter what country you happen to be born in or which religion is forced upon you. The countries that deny women their human rights are full of weak men.

Science and Islam? A contradiction of terms, can you say both in the same sentence?

Comment by SteveInCO on November 24, 2013 at 10:31pm

You can grammatically do so if you phrase it as a contradiction, e.g., "There is no science in Islam"

Anything else would get you a visit from the Grammar Nazis.

That reminds me of the picture of the Women's Conference in Saudi Arabia. Notice anything strange in it?

Hell, yes. Damn near every lady showed up wearing the same dress. How embarrassing!

They're all Saudi psychologists at a symposium on Freud's famous "What do women want?" question.

You know, for a few hundred years the Muslim world was the most scientifically-advanced society on Earth, much of their knowledge being pooled from their contact with Greek and Indian scholars, though they made many advances of their own. 

Then, something happened. I'm not sure what.

The fundies kicked up a ruckus.  Recent events of course have no resemblance to this whatsoever.  No Sirree.

   About 5 minutes Tyson talks about the intellectual centre of the world being Bagdad.
 
So does the step backwards in scientific thought count as Devolution?
