On the status of science in the Arab region, Al-Baz said, in an intervention via the “Skype” application, with the “Sky News Arabia” channel, on Friday, that the Arab world has reached leadership in science at a certain historical stage, and the whole world recognizes the wisdom of Arab scientists in This stage, and the problem is not in the Arab mind, adding: “There were periods in this region that were in a scientific and intellectual elevation, from the days of the ancients, and the days when the Arabs did not have a place in the world, and also before the revolutions that trampled us in the Arab world took place.”

He continued: “Social media is very important, and it will bring us to a better position, because in the old days people used to follow the sheikhs, but God told us: (Read) and this means that we collect information ourselves, and enjoy thought and reading, which is the basis of science and knowledge and the formation of the correct personality.” Noting that some of the sheikhs rejected the idea that the earth is round because they did not read books and sciences, stressing that in all countries of the world there are people whose minds do not have the capacity to think and read.
