Professor Richard Dawkins Ponders Mystery of Trinity

Über-atheist rightly "claim[ing] Muslims have contributed almost nothing to science since the Middle Ages" notes that "a single college at Cambridge University ha[s] won more Nobel Prizes than all the world’s Muslims" — Richard Dawkins on Islam v. Trinity College, Cambridge.

True enough, Prof. Dawkins, but why is that? Might it not have something to do with the Name of this particular college? Required reading: chapters four and five, "The Church and the University" and "The Church and Science," of How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization by Thomas E. Woods, Jr., whose blurb rightly states:
    Western civilization has given us the miracles of modern science, the wealth of free-market economics, the security of the rule of law, a unique sense of human rights and freedom, charity as a virtue, splendid art and music, a philosophy grounded in reason, and innumerable other gifts that we take for granted as the wealthiest and most powerful civilization in history. But what is the ultimate source of these gifts? Bestselling author and professor Thomas E. Woods, Jr. provides the long neglected answer: the Catholic Church.

I believe the late, great Fr. Stanley L. Jaki, OSB, Ph.D., S.T.D., had things to say about this as well.
