And "fallen back as a species" - how's that make sense?


Why doesn't it make sense to you?

In what ways have we fallen back? Did the ancient Khmers have widespread education? Would a person born into the lowest class have any chance of hearing about wild concepts such as science? Would anything but unquestioning obedience to the upper classes ever be taught them?

Awe for backwards religious cultures is the dumbest thing we can cultivate, seriously, even worse when we phrase it as though mankind has regressed since those days.
