Do you know what happened to the great libraries of the world, Nalanda being one of them? Destroyed by islamic conquerors. Arabs preserving the knowledge of the ancient world. Don' t make me laugh.And what is your authroity for that statement? Who did the counting.
Considering that for 500 years (since the 9th century), the Arab world preserved the knowledge of the ancient world better than the Christians did.
Would it shock you to learn we still teach our children Arabic numerals, aka Hindu-Arabic numerals?
