  2. This is a very odd, and to me, a disgusting question. You may relay that to your teacher.

    What does religion have to do with scientific achievement?

    Would the question be fair if one substituted "Christian", "Baptist", "Roman Catholic", "Atheist", "Wicca", " Devil Worshiping", "Evangelistic", or "Fundamentalist", or "Scientology"?

    Crediting scientific achievements to ones religion is nonsense. Surely you know this. Yes, I recognize each of those religions "claim" discoveries of individuals based on their religion including Islamics, but this is no reason for educators to perpetuate these divisions. Here is an example, ethno-centrism at its best: http://www.cyberistan.org/islamic/sciencehistory.htm My point is, does any person actually believe these great discoveries were the result of those folks religion? I hope not.
    We have enough strife in the world as it is, creating artificial divisions in science and math is to me, over the limit, and should not be tolerated in education. We are a multicultural world, and have to stop creating these boundaries of us and them.
