Surah2 – Verse 253: Those messengers – some of them We caused to exceed others, Among them were those to whom Allah spoke, and He raised some of them in degree...
Surah4 – Verse 165: [We sent] messengers as bringers of good tidings and warners so that mankind will have no argument against Allah after the messenger. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise.
Surah6 – Verse 34: And certainly were messengers denied before you, but they were patient over the denial, and they were harmed until Our victory came to them. And none can alter the words [ie., decrees] of Allah. And there has certainly come to you some information about the [previous] messengers.
Surah23 – Verse 44: Then We sent our messengers in succession. Every time there came to a nation its messenger, they denied him, so We made them follow one another [to destruction], and We made them narrations. So away with a people who do not believe.

Hello, Ownification. Got directed to this thread from the Baalbeck stones one.
I'm not religious and I don't regard the Q'uran as proof of anything. However, you're absolutely right that very intelligent human beings - geniuses, okay - must have existed since Day One. Call them God's messengers, call them smart cookies, call them anything you want, they were always there. The forward progress of humanity would, perhaps, not happened so quickly without the toiling masses, but it wouldn't have happened at all if not for this select few.
Nice thread. I predict you won't get many replies though.
