Alot of people say man is not doing that great right now.

Let me prove them wrong.

300 years ago everyone was a Christian prude, 500 years ago the Americas were just uncivilized Indians, 1000 years ago we had little technology, 2,000 years ago we were barbarians.

Oh, but they did have hot chicks in Greece, I would assume.

300 years ago - I was not alive.
500 years ago - I was not alive.
1000 years ago - I was not alive.
2000 years ago - I was not alive.

I think I like the here and now better than the alternatives.

Native Americans weren't uncivilized but other than that I agree with you.

Native Americans were more civilized than the colonists and their descendants have ever been. I can only imagine how things would be if they were left alone. Unfortunately, they had resources and other people wanted them.

Not a safe generalization.

Speaking on in generality, I think it's quite accurate.
