Because of recent world events, the religion of Islam has been vilified. I have never believed in stereotyping an entire group based on a tiny number of extremists. This is as political as I’m willing to get. Quite often, fear and hate is based on ignorance. Those most willing to stereotype are usually those who least know about the group they are stereotyping. So, here’s a tidbit which can allow all of us to learn a little something about Islam. The information isn’t even about the religion itself, but about its art.

According to BBC News, a Science study of medieval Islamic art has shown some of its geometric patterns use principles established centuries later by modern mathematicians. The research shows an important breakthrough had occurred in Islamic mathematics and design by 1200.
