So do you think we are more advance today compared to our past? Of course your first answer is going to yes. But compare it to what the had back lets say in the Roman era. We have invented complex machines in our time, but where would we be without the inventions of our past? I was watching a think on Discovery channel last night about the Romans with their cranes and pulleys system. Their architectural works we cannot even duplicate today. They were showing their pillar and columns and the professor was holding a piece of paper up to it showing their perfect skill. Also take the pyramids in ancient Egypt. Their precision not only on their work but also based off of longitude and latitude, plus the solar system is amazing. Their works have stood the test of time would ours? I think we as humans have lost the great arts thoughout time. Man has risen and fallen and knowledge has died with it. Our generation thinks we are so advanced, but are we really?
