I'm glad you concede that cultures aren't equivalent, and as I said "better"
is a matter of taste, but I am interested in the tastes and preferences of
members of this list. Can you think of anything that the Islamic culture has
done since they invented the zero 800 years ago that you personally think
they should be proud of? I can't, at least not right off the top of my head.
