more outreach from the big-tent GOP!

"Have you ever seen a Muslim do anything that contributes positively to the American way of life?" it asked.

Would it matter? Really? Who cares? F*cking dumbass. We've lots of <insert whatever you want here> people who sit on their asses, do sh*t all with their lives and never vote. Ever questioned them?

They invented distillation.  The word alcohol comes from Arabic.

If it wasn't for Muslims there would be no Fark.

Comparing Muslim charity work to Catholic charity work.  Maybe the Catholic church wins that one but when it comes to priests/clerics raping children, I have to give the edge to our Muslim friends.

If we're gonna go by that, what have Michigan Americans contributed to us lately?

Also, a Muslim man invented / discovered (building on the works of others, of course) what we now call Algebra, though I imagine that Mr Agema probably doesn't have much call for science in his daily life.

they - along with some irish monks - pretty much preserved classical learning for us while we were busy painting our faces blue and slaughtering each other during the dark ages.

Zero.

Literally the concept of zero.

The vast majority of the works of classical writers from ancient Rome and Greece survive to us through Muslim scholars. While in the west, the much of the learnings of the ancient philosophers and mathematicians were lost in the Dark Ages, the Muslim scholars translated and preserved much of their writings. Many of the modern English translations you can read today are translated from Arabic at one point.

Meanwhile, at around the same time in the West, a monk destroyed a parchment written on by Archimedes laying out the foundations for Calculus thousands of years before Newton and Liebnitz so he can reuse the parchment to write a prayer book.

That's actually a bit of a lie. The west didn't just suddenly become ignorant during the dark ages. Knowledge gained in ancient times still was retained in major cities. That's just the Protestant Enlightenment propaganda trying to make their time look better.

The dark ages was just the time period where the lines of communications and social infrastructures that were developed under Roman Empire dissolved. As a result, there were plenty of wars to fill power vacuum left behind. Also the plague wiped out a huge chunk of the workforce.

But there were several universities founded in Europe during that time period, they knew the earth was round and many of the things the ancient Greeks knew. What they didn't know was perhaps the original documents.

Which is why historians call that time period, the Middle Ages now and not the dark ages.
