Ancient Man—Brute or Brillilant?

The Genius of Ancient Man

Part 1



This is Ken Ham, a publisher of the award-winning family magazine called Answers.


There are two different accounts of our history: man’s ideas and God’s Word. According to man’s ideas of history, humans evolved from ape-men who were primitive and unintelligent. Based on this worldview, we should expect our past to be a record full of primitive tools. And for advanced civilizations to be relatively new.

But the Bible’s history records a much different view. Mankind was created in God’s image, intelligent from the beginning. Genesis tells us that a few generations after the Fall, humans were building cities and working with bronze and iron! Man was never a primitive brute.

Around the world we find evidence that ancient man was always highly intelligent.
