I believe that the problem solving skills of ancient cultures possibly surpassed our own today. Necessity is the mother of invention after all. The cognitive and reasoning abilities of ancient cultures is every bit as good then as it is in us today. The people who believe that the ancients sat around in the mud and grunted at each other (metaphorically speaking) are completely clueless and more than a little insulting.
Yes and as we see with the ancient timeline page I posted, PP and its builders were late showing up, the rest of the world was already very civilized...something that zoser cant seem to appreciate. I dont know if he knows just how recent 500 ad was (1500 years ago ZOSER)
Really if he just focused on that one tidbit of chronological FACT - it should in reality put the argument to bed. But its not what he WANTS to believe in so he swerves the facts all day long,..
