You forgot language evolution. The languages have evolved very, very much on the last 50.000 years. This give us the great advantageus of more abstraction power, more learning capacity, more powerful tools to change things. Embedded in our language though, we have most of the ancient wisdom(?)! We inherited it for free. You could not doubt it if you didn't have it in the first place... A samaller but very important (even if overrated) part of the ancient wisdom is our inheritance of doccumented facts and versions from the last 3.000 to 4.000 last years!
