And the fact that you believe all of this shows just how ignorant the right is of any history that doesn't end with America and white people as the greatest thing to ever happen to the world. Of course, there was nothing during what we affectionately term the "Dark Ages" --that's why they were so dark, no cultures were flourishing...or wait, maybe it was just European cultures that weren't flourishing. World history is packed with contributions from the Arab/Muslim world, including much of the Greek literature that Western Europe used for the Renaissance. What you perceive as "goats and squalor" looks that way in modern times because it has been razed repeatedly by imperialistic nations.
