Delirious? Sounds just like you're starting to get it. ;)

After dragging all those stones up the ramps they must-have had they mustta had stinky feet. And no one can be more stinky footed than modern people living in heated offices with shoes, socks, and tinea.

In those days "intelligence" was beneficial to the individual and usually resulted in larger families with longere average life-spans. "Stupidity" could be fatal without the government's handicapper general to prop you up. I would imagine that most individuals in ancient Egypt were sharper than most individuals today. At the very least the bell curve was skewed toward the higher end and the average was higher.

The real difference wasn't in some undefinable and unmeasureable parameter we call "intelligence". The major difference was each ancient language speaker had all his knowledge at hand and could use it in daily activities. Half of what we "know" is merely things we've been told that have little meaning to us and which often aren't even true. Even our knowledge isn't readily available to us.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
