You've got a point here mate, I regularly find myself asking my pals if they're up for some Algebra on a Thursday night.

Sometimes, if we want to go crazy I say we can chuck in some algorithm's too. **** me, we are WILD.

I think you are talking Giberish mate...

By the way, the word Giberish is derived from the word Algebra. It goes back to the time when Algebra was first introduced into Europe by the Moorish of Spain. That new concept of calculus didn't make any sense to the people at that time, for considering the numeral Zero as a number just like any other number was just incomprehensible

Firstly it's gibberish and secondly what absolute bollocks you're talking.

It's meant to be from Irish descent.

And I don't recall the Moors landing there or the Irish being well aware of Algebra in the 10th Century.

However I guess you're meaning Jābir ibn Hayyān as he was known as Geber and talked in an esoteric code that only his followers/enlightened ones (read Islamists) could understand.

If indeed the word gibberish does come from Geber then it only proves two things:-

1, He was talking a load of bollocks
and
2, It had nothing directly to do with algebra.

Most doctors from this region I know have not taken the Hippcratic Oath or anything similar...it's not on their radar.

It truly is a different civilisation.

I object to the word 'civilisation'. People reading may get the wrong impression of the barbarians.

So how would you classify doctors who maim healthy people because an old book say's it's OK to?

Is that civilised?

Quote me a case first so that I can comment on. Besides, Is your issue with why doctors are used to carry out court punishments or you are condemning the nature of the law itself? By the way, the Oath taken by doctors on graduation in that part of the world is something along the line “I will do my almost to serve God my religion and humanity and so on …”

Doctors are there to help people, nobody can argue with that. Even someone as deluded as yourself.

I have two issues:

1. Getting a doctor to paralyse a healthy human.
2. The adherence to laws from a book written hundreds of years ago.

I should know better by now having seen this shit for years, but the way religion is twisted out here at times sickens me.

I couldn't give a monkeys about religion and god. His job is to serve humans that need medical help. If they found a doctor willing to administer the punishment he also should be strung up.
