'Muslims peaked in the Dark Ages. But since then?': Richard Dawkins embroiled in Twitter row over controversial comments
by John Stevens
Richard Dawkins has provoked anger after he claimed Muslims have contributed almost nothing to science since the Middle Ages.
The outspoken biologist and atheist wrote on Twitter that a single college at Cambridge University had won more Nobel Prizes than all the world's Muslims.
His comments sparked fury on the social network where he was accused of disguising his 'bigotry' as atheism.
