Very good. .
7 July 2013 | by (Jordan) – See all my reviews

It's a very short discussion about inventions in the dark ages as some people call it. A very famous names of inventors and their cool inventions. Which are still represent a great deal of our lives. . Or maybe developed hundreds of years later to become great inventions and facilitate our lives.

Scientists such as Al-Jazari, Ibn Alhaitham...etc. As it's a very short video; you can always learn more using Google. Just look for Ibn Sina, Alrazy... and other Muslim scientists or go the website 1001inventions and see what Hillary_Clinton and others say about this project.

Some people don't like the fact that most of these inventions were discovered by Muslim scientists at that age, but it's the truth as Europe where swamped with what they call dark age wars... plus Islam encourage science
