Update: Oooops, I totally forgot that Joe posted this video on his blog awhile ago. More than three years ago, I wondered what would happen when Muslims get involved in the space program. Now that Obama has reduced NASA's role to watching fireworks on the 4th of July, they need a new mission.
NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden said Tuesday that President Barack Obama has asked him to “find ways to reach out to dominantly Muslim countries” as the White House pushes the space agency to become a tool of international diplomacy.After all, Muslims did give us Algebra, didn't they? At least that's who I've been blaming since high school. But it turns out the Muslims gave us the WORD, "algebra." The actual math was around thousands of years before Muhammad's wife convinced the epileptic wack-job that he was the Prophet of Allah. In fact, Muslims set algebra back (as they do everything) by rejecting negative numbers in spite of having learned of them from the Hindus. You would think that the people who "gave us" algebra would be progressive. But more than a billion people live in nations controlled by Islamic principles and these very same nations are among the world's most destitute, most repressive, and most violent. They invent practically nothing. They produce practically nothing. And they contribute absolutely nothing to the betterment of mankind. It is quite revealing that 1.2 billion Muslims, who comprise 20 percent of the world’s population, have won only seven Nobel Prizes, while the infinitesimal Jewish population – 0.02 percent – has won 129 Nobel Prizes. So, why does Obama want NASA to reach out to Muslims? Well, maybe there's something we can learn from them. See? I didn't KNOW that!
