I think it's incorrect to say these countries are so repressive and backward BECAUSE of Islam. It might be slowing them, but I don't think it fair to say that Islam is the problem.

I think it's pretty clear that there is some causation there.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Can you offer other possible reasons?

It's a shame such a beautiful girl is so utterly fucked in her head.

Well...it's actually a shame that anybody is so blindly ignorant and incompetent at debate...but as a heterosexual male that fancies attractive women, I find it particularly shameful.

RE: Islamic Teachings
I disagree. Remember that this area of the globe had not exactly been...prosperous. And since Islam tends to appeal to the militant and disenfranchised I think it just took advantage. I'm not saying it isn't retarding progress, I just don't think it's the root cause.

That being said I don't like Islam. I'm a woman and while its better now we still need to work on how women are seen and treated. Isl and its teachings are hurting us. A lot. Any religion that sanctions (if not outright endorses) the rape, genital mutilatiion, and second class citizenship of women is EVIL.

What? That Area of the word has always been a huge trade hub and is now a major supplier of a vital resource. It is by embracing a backwards barbaric system such as Islam that they are keeping their own people down.

RE: Islamic Teachings
Now I'm confused. One source implies the problems are due to the rise of socialist and nationalist totalitarian regimes. Others argue it's the rise of fundentalist Islam.

Edit: on further reading it seems I'm being a bit too fair. I'm separating the religion from political motives. I'm still not sure if the people behind it genuinely hold to fundamentalist Islam or if they use it to excuse their policies.
