The Golden Age

For the past several years the 1001 Inventions Exhibition has been travelling around the world spreading enlightenment about the Islamic Golden Age….well not exactly.

This is its accompanying short promotional film aimed at children, featuring Ben Kingsley as Muslim inventor al-Jazari.

Here is J Christian Adams exposing the linguistic sleight of hand running through both the film and the exhibition.

Here is Christian minister David Wood’s sardonic dissection of the Kingsley film and the Golden Age.

Perhaps a joint screening of the Ben Kingsley film and the David Wood video would make for an interesting school lesson.
