hehe In hindsight I should've deleted that . But since it is there and quoted I personally keep science and religion seperate. Mendeleev and others were not Orthodox science because they did nothing to the church doctrine. But putting Mendeleev as inseperable from the CHurch is a nationalist pandering to increase the prestige of the church. So bringing all invetions to Islamic Science is nationalistic pandering to bring all inventions under the general theme "Glory of Islam!" That we can all appreciate so we must all appreciate all that Islam has done for us. Not.
