Joel Cooper is an author and blogger from Indianapolis, Indiana who has been writing a book on the life and death of one of the most popular Persian polymaths ever – Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi.
Joel has already revealed many of the excerpts from her book on her blog.
Joel wrote that Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi moving to Baghdad to study and practice at a hospital proves that Babylonians were a great civilization along with being great warriors. Joel also clarifies that she doesn’t justify the ancient Babylonian atrocities in any way by claiming this and she criticizes the acts of ancient Babylonian cruelties including them killing hundreds of thousands of Jews and enslaving the rest of the Kingdom of Judah.
In her book, Joel also writes that there is no denying that Muhammad ibn Zariya al-Razi was a pioneer of ophthalmology but the belief that he was the first to recognize the reaction of the eye’s pupil to light is totally wrong. Joel claims that many Chinese masters had already observed the same long ago.
Joel also writes that Zakariya being the author of the first book on pediatrics is the proof enough about how much he loved the humanity and innocent human beings. Joel writes that Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi is blamed for being a misanthrope till date but he loved the children more than most other people of his times. Joel claims that Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi believed that the cultural, traditional and religious brainwashing was mostly responsible for killing the human soul.
Joel recently ordered a College Student Textbook for her elder son from a Kentucky based company that goes by the same name. They sometimes sell books for as low as 5% of the original price. It is amazing how hard these guys work to bring those expensive books at affordable price to your kids’ table.
