I think you should open your eyes on others (not only muslims by the way..)
I am well aware that there are Muslim doctors and scholars, but what are their contributions to science and progress? That link you posted (List of Arab scientists and scholars - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
) lists a very short list of scholars and scientists most of whom lived before the 13th century. The one "modern" scholar on the list lived in the 19th century and wrote an Arabic dictionary.
My post was not meant sarcastically, by the way. I think most people in the Western hemisphere would do hard to name a Muslim who had contributed something beneficial to their daily life. That doesn't mean that person doesn't exist, of course. Perhaps we are just unaware. That is why I asked for enlightenment.
