Man has always treasured his ability to see. As far back as records allow, we find that mankind has practiced eye surgery. The oldest record of eye surgery dates back 4,000 years. The Code of Hammurabi said that a surgeon who saved a man's eye was to be paid the same fee that was given to a doctor who saved a man's life. On the other hand, if the eye was lost during surgery, the law required the surgeon's fingers to be cut off! Not only were men intelligent enough to do eye surgery, but the consequences for failure indicate that they were apparently very skillful.

The Bible says Adam was created in God's image. It is only the false preconceptions of evolution, clouding people's minds with images of “ape-men,” that have caused people to believe that ancient man was any less intelligent than modern man. Our technology has built upon the discoveries of the past, and there is every indication that ancient mankind was as intelligent as modern man.
