Small changes in knowledge stack upon each other and have effects on logarithmic or polynomial orders of magnitude rather than on a linear scale. Underachievers or not, we are still seeing the same level of knowledge increase (logarithmic/polynomial) due to increased efficiency in communication.

In laymans terms, our ways of communicating started out slow, but once it took off, it REALLY took off.

You write as if you aren't a Homo sapiens.

Saidl brought up an excellent point- what do you think humans are?

We are HOMO SAPIENS!!

Underachievers?

Something not yet having been invented doesn't translate into people being underachievers.

Each era in history invents what is needed for that time in history.

In other words, necessity is the mother of invention.

Now back to educating you on what humans are:

"All people today are classified as Homo sapiens. Our species of humans first began to evolve nearly 200,000 years ago in association with technologies not unlike those of the early Neandertals. It is now clear that early Homo sapiens, or modern humans, did not come after the Neandertals but were their contemporaries. However, it is likely that both modern humans and Neandertals descended from Homo heidelbergensis."

I don't think lightbeam was aware that humans are homo sapiens.

I have to say that lightbeam seems to be hiding their light under a bushel- assuming the bulb is even working.

Meh. Your Semetic hippie didn't write anything down, either. I guess it wasn't very important.

Your ignorance is appalling.

An underachiever is an idiot who is still a godbot in 2013. An underachiever is one who enjoys the fruits of science while denigrating it. An underachiever is one who confirmation biases himself with the writings of known scam artists like convicted felon and guest if the state Ken Hovind, Ken Ham, and Matt Slick.

You ignorance of history is astounding.

Do any of my fellow atheists have an opinion on the sweetest-tasting babies? I'm thinking of trying a six month old out after Rignorantside Redneck tenderizes another one. Whack, whack, evil baby, whack whack!

Psst, crazy Christoans, this is called parody and sarcasm. No babies were harmed, well, except at Rignorantside Redneck's house.
