Except you forget the most obvious things staring you in the face, such as the pyramids. Modern man with all his so-called technological marvels and genius still can't build those things today.

We are at the end of the Fourth (Iron) age of humanity.
The Four great ages are:
Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Iron
We are in the Iron Age...so that's why you all are Iron Men.
Each age lasts a quarter of the Earth's precession of the equinox. Total that would be:
There is no such thing as a Gold age or a silver age, in fact Silver smelting only started a few hundred years BC and really only took off under the Romans, most of the silver at that time was a by-product of lead manufacture.
The Bronze age started about 3600 BC and continued till 600 BC so the Bronze age lasted 3000 years. Its a stretch to say we are still in the Iron age as very little in today's world is made of iron, Steel maybe but steel is not iron its an alloy, If you wanted to put a name on our current epoch then it would have to be the silicone age.
A discourse by Markandeya in the Mahabharata identifies some of the attributes of Kali Yuga. In relation to rulers, it lists:
Rulers will become unreasonable: they will levy taxes unfairly.
Rulers will no longer see it as their duty to promote spirituality, or to protect their subjects: they will become a danger to the world.
People will start migrating, seeking countries where wheat and barley form the staple food source.
"At the end of Kali-yuga, when there exist no topics on the subject of God, even at the residences of so-called saints and respectable gentlemen of the three higher varnas [guna or temperament] and when nothing is known of the techniques of sacrifice, even by word, at that time the Lord will appear as the supreme chastiser." (Srimad-Bhagavatam (2.7) With regard to human relationships, Markandeya's discourse says:
Avarice and wrath will be common. Humans will openly display animosity towards each other. Ignorance of dharma will occur.
People will have thoughts of murder with no justification and will see nothing wrong in that.
Lust will be viewed as socially acceptable and sexual intercourse will be seen as the central requirement of life.
Sin will increase exponentially, whilst virtue will fade and cease to flourish.
People will take vows and break them soon after.
People will become addicted to intoxicating drinks and drugs.
Gurus will no longer be respected and their students will attempt to injure them. Their teachings will be insulted, and followers of Kama will wrest control of the mind from all human beings.
Brahmans will not be learned or honored, Kshatriyas will not be brave, Vaishyas will not be just in their dealings.
In the Creationist's world view, Earth was made by God some 6,000 years ago,

Like I said, your beliefs are false because your assumptions are false. Radiocarbon dating and the like assumes that levels of the sun's radiation are constant, and they're not.

Best not wait to long personally. Time has a nasty tendency to be in abundance until finally it runs out. Everything in the universe is cyclical, you should realize that by now, so why not Time?
