I'd say thats not the case. We are merely building on previous knowledge with each generation. There have been many geniuses in the past and there are still numerous idiots today. I don't think there are more of either group...although if I had to guess, I'd say more idiots.I believe that in general the human race is getting smarter with each generation.
I didn't respond to your other post, but you did it again here. You're applying a biblical point of view to everything. Why?Which means that there is higher intelligence and historical experience with which to interpret the bible.
And I'd say it does so in simple easy to understand terms because thats the only way the people of the time could make sense of the world.I think the bible does explain quite alot, it just does it in simple easy to understand terms.
