comment Why were Greek philosophy and sciences taken up by medieval Muslim civilizations, but not contemporary Western Europe?
It's fascinating how hard is to grasp the early Christian climate. On one hand, for hundreds of years no book tried to challenge or correct Aristotle, Ptolemy, Galen. On the other hand people were ready to riot over one letter in Credo (and they did - google homoousious). Muslims acted predictably, we didn't.

comment Has being a single mother been always stigmatized?
Too broad. Please edit the question and add what century and what social class is of interest. Otherwise it would require a whole book. But the question is interesting.

comment What motivated revolutionary France to declare war on Britain in 1793?

comment Is the name of Askandra Village, Rajasthan related to Alexander the Great?
Alexander's achievements are on par with Stalin's. Whatever the reasons the bloodthirsty Hellene is still so popular, I think any city named after him should be rather ashamed of itself (as Stalingrad once was).

I think we can afford not to repeat the mumblings of politicians. The war wasn't "brewing", you provide evidence that is was planned by British government. Ordinary people couldn't really do anything to escalate the international conflict, did they?

comment Did the passage from Latin to English, in England, help science flourish?
Your question seems off. As I read your comments, I think what you want to know is actually if switching to native language helped education, not science. For elementary education the answer is historically obvious; not so for scientific method which really happens at universities and later.
