My personal belief is that mankind has been de-evolving since the garden.
Maybe, but the potential is still there. Most people I encounter don’t have to nor want to think.
Machines have replaced our thinking skills. My Dad with elementary education could do much more math in his head than I ever could. A slide rule required some thinking ahead to know if the answer you got was reasonable, not so with a computer, you get a number but don’t know what it means.
Many don’t want to think. Want to be told whether it is the church or govt.
THINKING CAPS AREN’T ISSUED ANY MORE.
