Science Iran - Persian Science


Abu Ali Sina (Avicenna), Father of the Modern Medicine

Why Am I Writing This Article?

The reason that I am writing this piece is:

I. To educate and enlighten the Iranian Youth (Future of Iran) to their rich history.

II. Arabo-Muslims claim all the Iranian scientists as the “Arabic Scientists” or “Islamic Scientists”!

III. Ex states of Iran and present independent nations (fabricated by UK and Russia) claim all the Iranian scientists as their own!

IV. The global public are historically challenged and ignorant; therefore, they fall for the above lies!

8000 Years of Iranian History

Now allow me to clarify a few points. The public must comprehend that:

Important Historical Notes

I. Until 200 or 250 years ago, all below nations were parts of Iran. Each of these nations were formed from 2 to 3 states of Iran. These are not real countries with actual history of their own, yet they are fabricated nations created by UK and Russia which had annexed them from Mother Persia to undermine Iran. UK and Russia had taken advantage of the declining Persian Empire (after Aqa Mohammad Shah Qajar, the last Persian Emperor), and amputated various parts of the Persian Empire and created all of these artificial nations and named them independent nations!

First and Last Persian Emperors

Here are the list of Ex Iranian states and present fabricated nations:

Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan (parts of), Kazakhstan (parts of), Baluchistan half of Pakistan, Iraq, Bahrain, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Ossetia (a small part of Russia)

So basically when you see a nation’s name ends with “istan”, then that is not a real nation, thus an Ex state of Iran which was stolen from Iran and declared independent by UK or Russia to undermine the Iranian authority.

Therefore, all of the Iranian scientists, whom were born in these Ex states of Iran and present fabricated nations, are indeed Iranian scientists and belong to the “Greater Iran”. For instance, it is comical for Afghanistan to claim that Abdol Rahman Jami (Iranian Poet and Scientist) or Yaqub Leis Saffarid (Liberator of Iran from Arabs) are Afghan nationals, simply because there is no such thing as the Afghan national! Afghanistan is not even a real nation, but a fabricated nation made by the British, about two hundred fifty years ago. Afghanistan was basically two states of Iran (Ariana and Bakhtar).

So all the scientists whom happened to be born in these countries back when all of these countries were parts of Iran, are indeed Iranian Scientists and surely not Afghan, Tajik, Uzbek or etc. All of these countries are artificial nations created by UK and Russia. Primarily UK and Russia had stolen these states of Iran and added them to their boundaries (Russia) or made them protectorates (UK), and later on, they gave them independence and created these fabricated nations out of their rectums!

Iran had never recognized these fabricated nations. All of these countries and their population are indeed Iranians and one day in the future, they will be returned back to the Mother Persia as states of Iran.

II. The creative force and the operating force behind the “Islamic Empire” (after 651 AD) were primarily Persians and secondarily other occupied civilizations [Egyptians, Tunisians (Carthaginians), Phoenicians (Lebanese), etc.]. The Arabs of the Arabian Peninsula were basically the conquering force and the muscle who created this empire and they had almost no roles in its operation (Government and Administration) and Creativity (Art, Science and Construction). Therefore all of these scientists were Iranian scientists from Iran who were living under the First AIOG (Arabo-Islamic Occupational Government) after 651 AD.

III. Everyone including Arabs (Invaders-Occupiers) and Fabricated Nations (our past states) such as Afghanistan loves to take credit and claim the Iranian scientists as their own! The global public is simply historically ignorant and assumes that these lies are true!

Now that I have cleared the air, I would like to direct your attention to the historical timelines of the Iranian Dynasties for the further better understanding of each scientist’s period:

Iran Dynasties and Monarchs of 8000 Years

Also observe the past, present and future goal and agenda of all Iranian Nationalists:

A Vision for Iran of Tomorrow (Nationalism)

Iranians had Invented the Modern Science

Abu Ali Sina (Avicenna), Father of the Modern Medicine
Abu Mousa kharazmi, Father of the Modern Mathematics
Mohammad Zakariya Razi, Father of the Chemistry
Abu Rayhan Biruni, Father of Anthropology
Omar Khayyam Father of Algebra

And the list goes on ….

Not that us Persians have created the global civilization (oldest civilization in the world), yet we have invented the modern science. Name any element and I will trace the roots of it back to Iran. It is good to be Persian. It is great to live, love and die as a Persian. We are the noble people.

There are two types of people:

Those who are Persians
Those who want to be Persians

It is always a Great Era to be Persian!

This would bring us to the main course. Here are the all times most famous and historically relevant Iranian scientists. Enjoy and bon Appetite:
