If that's true, why has Islam gone backwards for the past 700 years? While Europe was nestled in the dark ages, Islam was in the forefront of art, music, mathematics, and physics. Have they gone forward from then? I don't think so.


While the progress of Islamic enlightenment has been dismal, it still has progressed quite a bit form 700 years ago, particularly in open progressive societies. It's reasonable conjecture that 700 years ago all Islamic women were oppressed, that Sharia law and harsh justice was the norm in all Islamic countries, and that questioning Islamic authority was an almost assured death sentence. Progress has been made, but much more is needed.
