Very reminiscent of Everything there is to know about the Wasp.

would like to see a decent quality rip of this. Compression was not nice to the linked video.

Probably another one of those, "How the Pyramids Were Made" type shows. And at the end, the host comes on the screen, "We still don't know, but thanks for watching, HAHA!"

"Praise Allah, I have invented the zero!"
"What?"
"Nothing, nothing."


Hehe.

A lot of inaccuracies in this video. Zero came a bout before Islam so no "Allah", and few peopel though the world was flat, only a few religious extremists.

Nimnom: A lot of inaccuracies in this video. Zero came a bout before Islam so no "Allah", and few peopel though the world was flat, only a few religious extremists.

-I don't think the movie was attempting to push the flat-earth inaccuracy, but rather that religious orthodoxy clashed with scientific discovery, symbolized by both the darkness of the background and the by an unseen person trying to shut the windows each time a philosopher with a new idea popped up.

As for attributing the numeral zero to the Arabic world, well, it's funny, laugh. At the very least, a Persian was greatly responsible for synthesizing and later introducing Indian methods to the European sphere, so Islam gets some amount of credit here.

You can buy it from pyramidmedia.com. For $125. For a crappy transfer.
