Jul 8, 2012 Full story: The State 111

Pakistan's only Nobel laureate helped develop the theoretical framework that led to the apparent discovery of the subatomic "God particle" last week, yet his legacy has been largely scorned in his homeland because of his religious affiliation.

Well, this just goes to show...

Is it too much to ask for the Human Race to move on from a nasty, superstitious doctrine laid down by a murderous, paedophile, dog slaughtering, rapist, slave trading gangster from the 7th century Middle East?

Muslims deserve to be even more socially unacceptable than neo-Nazis.

What they believe in is absolute, poisonous shit.

a big fat 0 my friend.... the first person to call the muslims to prayer was a black man - a freed slave.

slavery was 100% against islam, the pedophilia claim is also utter tosh... mohammed was striking strategic relationships with other tribes in the area, one tribe leader offered mohammed his daughter for marriage however she was only 9 years old! to save face and the possibility of conflict mohammed reluctantly accepted BUT did not actually marry the girl until she was 16.

the human body is ready to reproduce offspring from a fairly young age, do your research and look at how many western monarchs married children.

One thing that is undisputed which you seem to have forgotten is the fact that the islamic empire brought europe out the dark ages, whilst we were shitting in buckets and throwing it out on the streets they were using sewer systems, they were pioneers in architecture, astronomy, maths, science and physics, please do some research and stop your ignorance.

Educated.He said they are all equal unless they are nonMuslim.Then they must pay the jizya so they will not be molested.What did Mohammed do when he fled Mecca?He raised a private army and began plundering caravans traveling to Mecca and distributed the plunder to gain followers.Submission,conversio n,or death.Slavery in N.Africa and the Middle East is a historic fact,just like it was in Europe.This accounts for the"freed slave"calling Muslims to prayer.What is the underlying theme?Small groups of Muslim officials and soldiers grew rich off the skills and industry of millions of conquered nonMuslims

Educated.Out of the"Dark ages"?The decline of the Ottoman Empire was brought about by the decadent lifestyles of the rulers who spent more time with their harems of concubines than they did conquering.Such shining examples of culture and sophistication as Mehmed III whose first public act was to have his 19 brothers strangled to prevent succession.

More of Pakistan's ingratitude towards those who have pulled it out the dark age and into the 21 first century.In it's concessions to and fears of extremists who want to turn back the clock of civilization and progress,Pakistan sacrifices it's economic prosperity and standing in the civilized world.Possession of nuclear weapons,Pakistan's"Crown jewel"is not a step forward but a constant glancing over it's shoulder for the next enemy.

This sounds very similar to the way Richard Dawkins is hated in large areas of America.

I guess religious morons who hate science are the same all over the world.

Catholics in France with the guillotine?

Buddhist Brahmists (Hindus) in Cambodia sawing peoples heads off with a palm frond?

Orthodox christains in Wallachia with rusty knives?

Protestants with swords in the new world?

Muslims with machetes in Afghanistan?

It seems that morons of all religions have been cutting peoples heads off throughout history. Even Buddhists.

Arabs never invented anything and never brought civilisation to the west. They stole intellectual property when they sacked the great Indus civilisation ( Present day Pakistan) Persia and Egypt. These theives then passed off all our inventions as theirs this is the only undisputed fact. The arabs never even shitted in buckets they shitted straight out of their tents and caves. Which arab city had a sewer system and what contribution have they made to science and technology.

we are talking about what is going on NOW, not long ago. And the only religion that still kills backsliders and unbelievers is Islam. I canīt see why you feel you have to defend them all the time. Has Ronan given you his job while he is away in Turkey?

I didn't realise christians issued fatwahs and death sentences against their detractors.

What a good job Salman Rushdie never wrote anything about their religion.

Wait a minute...
