All of what you say is spot on,especially pointing out that
one of the biggest factors in why the “average” life expectancy was lower than today. Child mortality rates. Essentially, if one made it to adulthood, the chances were pretty good that you would make it to within a few years of “today’s” averages life expectancy is. When you factor in the fairly high rates of childhood mortality and mothers passing away in the act of giving birth the numbers go down considerably. Sterility and cleanliness at the second half of the 19th century and then the advent of vaccines did a lot to make sure that more people being born survived long enough to pass down their own genes. There were a lot of factors combined that’s lead to longevity of ones life these days and as you point out, modern medicine definitely ranks itself a little higher in regards to its role in this.

We use almost all of our brain, just not all at the same time. You're not going to use the part of your brain used for "fight or flight" if you're not in certain situations, you're not going to use the part of the brain required to do math if you're not doing math. Each part of the brain is only used when it is needed. The whole "we only use 10 percent of our brain" is a myth and is probably referring to roughly 10 percent at any given time.

And could be the reason why we still struggle as humanity. We were once aware of everything all at the same time. All the answers were evident. We lost that somewhere because. we are worse and just as brainwashed as ever...as if their theory is absolute truth.
Or, we lost it somewhere.
That is what I think. Just Look around at society in general and see how backward we have gone.
Tell me how are we moving forward as a human race?

Think about this. Evolution requires no creator and would be self-evident. I see no mystery if I came from monkeys, I would be able to communicate with monkey's no?
BTW...I have always thought that one's IQ can be improved upon and not set in stone.

Some simple examples of human evolution, which will eventually disappear from our species because....evolution:
Our immune system is made up of a series of mechanisms, reflexes and responses that comprise our body’s defense system. But the mechanisms employed to protect against infection and disease rely on the support of several organs and systems that produce white blood cells, help them mature and stock them for future use, with the purpose of preventing infection and disease. These organs are called lymphoid organs because they contain lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell, and are classified as primary and secondary.
What are the organs of the immune system? The organs of the immune system are the tonsils, the adenoids, the thymus, the lymph nodes, the spleen, the appendix, the associated lymphoid tissues, the bone marrow and the skin.
While complex, the activity of the immune system organs is well-regulated and vital for a strong immune system response.
5) The appendix. It is a secondary lymphoid organ which contains generous amounts of lymphoid tissue, rich in white blood cells. The appendix is believed to house good bacteria meant to restore intestinal flora in case it is destroyed by an infection. Research has observed that people who have had their appendix removed are more susceptible to infections and disease, most likely because of the role of the appendix in the immune system. It has been theorized that the appendix is responsible for activating B and T cells to fight infection and regulating digestive health via its immune response.
MANY researchers approach the study of biology, genetics, and related fields from the standpoint of the theory of evolution. Often, this view has led them to false conclusions. For example, early Darwinists classified certain organs, such as the appendix, the pituitary gland [the pituitary is an important gland in the body and it is often referred to as the 'master gland', because it controls several of the other hormone glands (e.g. adrenals, thyroid).], and the tonsils, as vestigial. They considered them to be evolutionary leftovers because these organs seemed no longer to have any function. In time, however, the important role of these organs came to light. Evolutionists, therefore, had to discard their earlier views.
A similar development recently occurred in the field of genetics. Early research suggested that about 98 percent of the DNA in humans and other organisms had no function. Hence, many who were influenced by the theory of evolution assumed that this DNA was “evolutionary junk”—a view that quickly became orthodox.
Once again, however, an assumption rooted in Darwinism proved to be false. Recently, scientists have discovered that “junk” DNA plays a vital role in the body by yielding special forms of RNA (ribonucleic acid) that are vital for life. John S. Mattick, director of the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at the University of Queensland in Australia, feels that the hasty acceptance of the “junk” DNA theory is “a classic story of orthodoxy derailing objective analysis of the facts, in this case for a quarter of a century.” This failure, he adds, “may well go down as one of the biggest mistakes in the history of molecular biology.”
