After centuries of stagnation science is making a comeback in the Islamic world

I often wonder if the upside of diplomatic conflict and the resulting military armament isn't an inherent valuing of Science.

You can only but so much on the black market before you realize you need to build your own and You can't pray a tank into existence. And maybe it has been the black market of soviet weapons and the military aid flowing into the region that has kept things so backward.

A controversial Turkish preacher who goes by the name of Harun Yahya is in the forefront. His website spews pamphlets and books decrying Darwin. Unlike his American counterparts, however, he concedes that the universe is billions of years old (not 6,000 years).

Yahya may be stupid, but he's not as stupid as an evangelical Christian - nobody is that stupid.
