GUEST,mack/misophist BS: The radical loser (11) RE: BS: The radical loser 22 May 06


One small cavil re the Renaissance. In history class, the onset of the Renaissance was always reckoned as 1399 CE. The official spark was said to be the printing press of Aldo Manutius, the first man to release those 'lost' Greek and Roman classics in a European language, mostly Latin IIRC.

One might also note that, once Wahhabism came into power, they not only outlawed original new thought, they tended to kill the thinkers. Very discouraging, that.
