Oh wait, they did... and accurately estimated the earths circumference (Eratosthenes, 200BC). You shouldn't be critical of things you don't know anything about. Today we do not know one thing about the origin of the Universe. zip zero zilch. And when you know nothing, it is always good to hear what someone else has to say.
Picking and choosing select advancements does not give credence to the claims of religion. There are plenty of things that can be pointed out to show how little we knew about things back then as well. On top of that I never said they were stupid, there is a difference between intelligence and knowledge. I was making a statement about the knowledge we had as a people, not the intelligence of the people. I said that we as a people did not know much of anything about the universe back then. I may have been a little extreme by saying much of anything but that doesn't change the fact we didn't have the slightest idea about what the universe really was back than. Nice strawman though.

the reason why i love dr michio kaku is because he dumbs things down to my level. and that's pretty durmb.

Glad to see Kaku agrees that science and logic is the proper flourishing way of the future as opposed to silly religious/racial wars.

It wasn't straw man, you admittedly misspoke.

This is not about religion, it is about God. Religion is a structure based belief and morality system usually incorporating God. God can wear many hats but is most commonly thought of as omniscient, omnipotent and the creator or cause of existence. Furthermore, science doesn't deal with knowledge, it deals with inductive logic. Therefore, science never expands our knowledge of the universe but rather our volume of information about it. But, we are getting off track. Since we now have no knowledge or information about the origin of the universe, the opinions of anyone at any time are equally valid. And finally, if we did discover an origin to the universe it would fit the most common definition of God, the creator or cause, and therefore applying God before hand without any knowledge or information is perfectly reasonable and logical.

This. That guy isn't nearly as smart or as future predicting as he thinks he is. Part of the nature of technology is that it is well known for taking very unexpected twists and turns.
