The origin of the idea that the earth revolved around the sun, circulation of the blood through the body, and other mysteries of human anatomy were studied in the middle east.

Then the Mullahs took over, and independent education in the middle east came to a screeching halt. The desert tribes still eat with their fingers.
spot on , they actually went backwards, despite Arabic and Indian scholars work that showed the earth revolved around the sun , Moo ham odd used a old text as the basis so even today islamic schools teach the sun revolves around the earth.. cause moo ham odd cant be wrong ! allah says so , (through moo ham odd of course)
