Was Ancient Man a Genius?

The Genius of Ancient Man

This is Ken Ham, an Aussie transplant with a passion for sharing the truth of God’s Word.


Around the world, we see evidence that ancient cultures were highly intelligent.

They had a complex knowledge of astronomy. For example, structures from ancient times are so precise that their builders must have known that the Earth wobbles as it spins. They knew this caused the constellations to shift.

Many cultures also knew that Saturn has rings and that the stars Sirius A and B are actually two stars, even though they appear to be a single star in the night sky.

The ancients must have used telescopes or lenses.

Ancient man was not unintelligent, as evolution teaches. Humans were created in God’s image and used their minds to accomplish great things from the beginning.
