these are material advances with a solidly historical basis. culture, society, civilisation: all are historical, not innate.
there isn't any difference in evolutionary terms between the homo sapiens who put foot on the moon and the homo sapiens who have stayed put and not devised space travel (or nuclear bombs, or industrial holocausts, or sarin gas, etc.) we are the same animal. the human being didn't 'evolve' in the years 1930–1960 when the nascent field of rocket science really took off. idiot.
do you think isaac newton was more 'evolved' than his white peers who were still thoroughly enmeshed in alchemy, superstition, theories of medieval humours, etc? was he born as the next version of homo sapiens, thus giving birth to calculus and the theory of gravity? use your fucking head.
the difference is a matter of historical process, not of races 'advancing' ahead of others on a genetic basis. the entire notion that evolution is an iterative process and is 'progressing' in a linear fashion towards greater intelligence, higher animals, etc, is itself a severely misguided one. that's not how evolution works.
you are fucking illiterate. it's dangerous and dangerously stupid.
