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.
Enormous stone masses or metal fragments are there; they cannot be argued away. (Photo shows ancient stone hewn from single block and weighs at least 2.4 million pounds. No modern crane could move it. More later.) I believe that this original advanced world, gave impetus to all succeeding civilizations, and is well within the framework of scientific thinking.

Anyone can bury their heads in a textbook and have a textbook understanding of the world.
Anyone can live life and gain a deeper understanding of life through experience.
A genius in my opinion is anyone who can understand both without having to do either.
The sad thing is that if you understand this and can relate to it, you will be lonely because few understand what this is like. Genius is both a gift and a curse because anyone else does not have enough time to gain understanding of both sides of life. That is also why I think there is a fine line between genius and insanity.

1 - They bring good tidings.
2 – They bring warnings.
Both of these statements can be applied to Scientists today. Good tidings could be the possibility that we can live eternally under the String Theory. Bad tidings could be the possibility of Global Warming.

Being labled a genius can be a burden, have been called that and why I haven't a clue, the problem I have had is people call me arrogant or you know too much, can't relate to you, will the fact is I am a research junkie and if something interest me I find out all I can about it, if that makes me arrogant or know to much so be it. I have never been tested and it's not my opinion..
Densa -- people who take test after test after test, trying to break into the vaulted ranks of the 3-digit IQ levels.

Evidence of genius has been recorded throughout history. Like you said whether it is through science, philosophy, artistry, it is there. I wish the message was more clear, not so much metaphorical. Great post.
