According to evolution, mankind has gradually become smarter as we’ve evolved. They don’t expect to find examples of great intelligence in ancient man.
But we know that ancient peoples buried their dead, wore makeup, made musical instruments, and even supplied their homes with hot water!
Ancient man was not a dumb brute. All humans throughout history are made in God’s image and display the creativity and skill we’d expect.
