Well, I would contend that it is most definitely not "needless to say". I, for one, would love to hear the rationale behind that statement. You dogmatically state they were "more than capable", but what is the plausible explanation and the details or proof that the assertion has actually been verified as possible at all, even in modern times, let alone achieved by the Late Stone Age Dynastics?
