    Of course they do. They are humans just like us. They like to brag about themselves, just like everyone else.
    Their start of science and philosophy are Greece and Rome. This obviously is wrong. Greece and Rome were in direct contact with a civilization far more ancient and advanced than theirs. The Egyptians.
    Greeks and Romans developed their ideas from Egypt. Hippocrates is not the father of medicine. This title deserves to be given to Imhotep instead.
    How Imhotep gave us medicine - Telegraph

    Similarly they talk about Copernicus, but never mention Nasiruddin al-Tusi.

                                In 1834, an Ohio physician named Dr. John Cook Bennett declared tomatoes to be a universal panacea that could be used to treat diarrhea, violent bilious attacks, and indigestion. Pretty soon, Bennett was publishing recipes for tomato ketchup, which were then concentrated into pill form and sold as a patent medicine across the country.
