Umm.. it's not about debate. It's just interesting? lol
 
And it's saying optics were studied by Muslims. Or Ibn al Haytham (that was the name right? Too lazy to go back and check). 
 
Cheers.

The description elaborates on the actual truth of the matter, yes, but I must admit I don't appreciate misleading headlines.

Algebra.
 
 
Also round towers. I learned the cooelst thing the other day- Europeans used to always build square towers. A common warfare technique was to tunnel under the other guys' tower and knock out their conerstone so the whole thing would come crashing down. Then they went on the Crusades and had one heck of a time trying to find the corners on the Muslims' towers... because they were round. Apparently you can tell when a European castle was built by the shape of its towers- square towers came before the Crusades and round ones came after.
 
 
Okay, nerd tangent over. (goes to actually read article)

And I <3 History. I appreciate architecture, but I've never known any technical terms etc. My dad's a contractor though, so I know generally how buildings go together.

Just read the article... I think it's hilarious that the marching bands weren't used to keep time while marching like they are now. They played scary music to psych out the other guys. I LOVE IT. :D
