>tfw muslims say that while europe was in the dark ages the muslim world was flourishing
>mfw all the muslim advancements in science, medicine, and math were created by Persians (Aryans)
how are indo-europeans not the master race?
Muslims aren't a race, but the Universal Religion; so we don't care about the ethnic origin of the Muslim scholars as much as anyone else.
And not all of the advancements were made by Persians, rather many.
They were Sunnis during the Golden Age, (force) converted to Twelver Shi'ism from 1501 onwards.
All Muslims are having these problems.
WE WUZ ARYANS N SHIT
Mongolians man. Damn Mongolians went and rained on the "Muh Islamic Golden Age" parade.

>how are indo-europeans not the master race?
let me guess, you're a pig skinned white savaged trying to take credit for(or attach yourself to) west asian history and achievements by using the term indo-european. News flash euroclown, you are in no way connected to the Persians, your ancestors had fuck all to do with that, be happy with what your ancestors did instead of always trying to latch onto the history of other people you fucking parasite
The funny part is some will move the goal posts in certain arguments and say Greeks and Italians aren't white but are Indo-European.
If you think about it, this actually means "aryans" are rather shit.
>"dark ages were intellectually dark meme"
They were Persian Muslims so it doesn't disprove anything
>We have the same ancestors
there are many people that have the same ancestors, many africans have west asian ancestors but im sure you would through a bitch fit if they tried to claim or attach themselves to west asian civilizations.

>In a time before central schooling everyone within a vast area from Éire to Iran and further onwards to Bengal speak the same language with minor differences

Yeah, sure. I bet they were outnumbered 1000/1, too, and they somehow forced the natives to adopt a language and customs from a completely different language family/cultural group; throwing their own in the trash bin of history.
>>In a time before central schooling everyone within a vast area from Éire to Iran and further onwards to Bengal speak the same language with minor differences
This has never been the case
>but they never intermarried with them
They did, but the natives outnumbered the newcomers by far.
>customs from a completely different language family/cultural group
How do you know their customs are Indo-European?
Nice. There was a guy from Iran on /int/ too. Do you go there? It is mostly shitposting and generals but there is no other alternative on 4chan for discussing cultures with foreigners.
There is a guy from Glendale there too, we "meet" on /int/ from time to time and go to the chatroom and discuss shit. You can join too if you want.
A. Persians vastly overcontributed compared to their population, but Arabs did a lot too. See Ibn Haytham/Alhazen.
B. Indo-Europeans haven't been a unified thing since 4000/3500 BC. The genetic differences between modern IE-speaking populations are far, far, far, far greater than their similarities. The only reason Indians stand out is because the locals they mixed with were darker - the IE component of their genetic makeup is, however, probably greater than that in Spain or Ireland.
By the historical period, there are so few cultural similarities as well, that speaking of Indo-Europeans as any kind of singular people is retarded. The only things that remained remotely constant were certain aspects of religion, but even without Christianity or Islam interfering, there were radical changes all over the IE world.
You really do need to look at this >>567472 and think about what it represents.
Persians have always been Semiteboos. They have always predominantly used scripts immediately borrowed from Semitic languages. As often as not, the administrative language of their empire was Semitic. Even when writing in Persian, under the Sassanids, literary Persian was highly mixed with Aramaic elements, including Aramaic words used logographically.
And this is BEFORE Islam.
The only really stand-out native Iranian script is the Avestan alphabet, which from the beginning was only really used to preserve an autistically precise pronunciation of their old liturgical language - it only became used for non-religious documents after the Islamic conquest, among the increasingly small, isolated, and insular Zoroastrian communities.
Granted, the Avestan script is miles ahead of the disgusting sand squiggles that don't even indicate vowels, and fits the Persian language far, far, far better than Arabic script. But the modern Persians are just continuing the legacy of Cyrus the Great and Khosrau by using a shitty script that barely fits their language.
