I have seen quite a few claims from those championing Islam to be scientifically enlightening, quoting Koranic verses that supposedly prove the Koran has known or predicted many of the Scientific discoveries modern scientist have made today. I found many of these claims dubious.

Professor Richard Dawkins did too and, limited to 140 characters on Twitter, he posted: "All the world's Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge. They did great things in the Middle Ages, though".

This caused a massive uproar and many threw Dawkins a number of accusations including racism and bigotry. I think Dawkins removed the Twitter post but he wrote an article to explain and defend his tweet.

As long as there are people claiming how great Islam is in terms of its scientific prowess, Dawkins' tweet was justified.

What do you think?
