heck unusually smart?! Or was it because there was just so much to discover back then, and now we are more like trying to solve tough problems.

Heck learning about that Pyramid (i forgot the name the one that is one of the 7 world wonders) and how it'd even be a complicated engineering feat today and they managed to build that without even electricity..

rofl building pyramids was easy, just make the slaves do it for you. it's basically the electricity of back then.

Actually, there are some theories that they had electricity in ancient Egypt. Not enough to power machines capable of moving massive blocks, but enough for small lights and whatnot. I don't know how true or credible it is, but it was some pretty interesting stuff I saw way back in the day on either TLC or Discovery. I mean way back, when they were both still dedicated to actual science and education.

It's my belief that mostly everything is smarter than the human species today. Even things like beetles and trees.

A lot of people don't realize that in the ancient world, slavery was not what we think of as slavery today. Even in the Bible where it is demanded that all slaves be released on Jubilee (every seven years)it had a process that a slave could opt to go through to become a permanent slave and never have to be freed again.

If slavery to them was what we think of it as today, why would such provisions have been needed? Who would have wanted to remain a slave?

If they were, why are they dead? What did they die to that we didn't?

Does that make sense? >_O

For what they had for their time? They were fairly smart. Though, I still wonder how the Celtics were able to build Stonehenge. And, no... I really doubt aliens helped them...

You have to remember, intelligence isn't genetic.
