Were The Ancients smarter than Modern Man?

Perhaps. I, however, think that man never changed. Modern man is neither stupider nor more enlightened his ancient counterpart. But his environment has changed significantly of course. The evidence of smart men living in the ancient world doesn't necessarily mean that all men that time were smart. Just as it is today, there were wise men living with fools.

Hat tip: Western Confucian
