i dunno. they had pretty advanced ideas about dietary laws and surviving the diseases that were decimating other populations. you have to admit, that sexual promiscuity tends to spread disease in populations and that's not even touching on bestality, necrophilia and some of the other abberations going on in many of the surriounding cultures.
. i think it actually shows that if nothing else, they had good intel on how to survive with the most chances of success, although certainly not a fair set of laws, they served the purpose of the times they lived in and were eventually corrected/fine-tuned when jesus came and explained that the laws they were still holding as divine, were actually from moses.
i'm guessing the idea of what the wormhole really is, partially answers your question
if you are in a state of existence in which time is irrelevant, you would, by virtue of the ability to see past present and future, be omniscient, at the very least. and i'm guessing, anyone capable of that level of understanding, would also be omnipotent, particularly as it applies to cavemen.
In the story of the Tower of Babel, God makes a very interesting observation:
“The LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.” – Genesis 11:5 – 7
God knows that power is a very corrupting force, and no individual or group of people should have too much of it. When people unite, they can do some very powerful things, both for good and for evil. And unfortunately, the most unifying political movements of history have always been invariably destructive.
The "Epicurean paradox" is a version of the problem of evil. It is a trilemma argument (God is omnipotent, God is good, but Evil exists); or more commonly seen as this quote:
“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?
