It is not my role to educate you. That is your own responsibility. However, while we are discussing the Islamic greats, I will be glad to correct your misunderstandings, if it does not require too much of my efforts !!

Incidentally, here is another quote which describes the originality of Avicenna's thoughts which I believe you will be interested in. It is from the article that you linked about Descartes: Please study these experiments more fully, so we can express how impressed we are with Avicenna.
