Diet. Hfcs, grains, trans fats....those probably have a big role in making people stupid.
I read in one of the paleo diet sites that paleolithic skulls have larger brain pans than neolithic ones.
If true, it could be a more reasonable explanation.
Brain size is not correlated to increased intelligence. If that was the case then a sperm whale should be smarter than your average human, but it isn't.

I have little doubt this is true. Once you remove natural selection from the process, as we have done with civilization, its no longer the strongest or smartest that reproduces most successfully. Its whoever has the most sex. Often intelligent people are so preoccupied with carreer that they never get around to having kids. Idiots will have as many as possible.
Watch 'Idiocracy' to see where we're headed and why...

I think you should spend some time reading architecture books.
Or, read some books that deal with microchip fabrication.
Or, read some books that deal with military theory.
Or, read some books that deal with biology.
Or, read some books that deal with AI programming.
Or, read some books that deal with audio engineering.
Or, heck, just read some books.

Also, I like to think about how organised religion, pretty much ruling the world, and the dark ages etc.
How much history has literally been suppressed for religious reasons and for contradicting peoples beliefs?
Obviously this is all highly highly speculative before anyone jumps on me
