As we know, Witnesses teach that Adam and Eve were perfect and then committed the first act of sin and rebellion.
They in turn were cursed,and we all declined as their offspring. Humans supposedly lived shorter and shorter lives, and became more imperfect and sinful.
The further away in time humans go then, they should be getting worse.
So why is it then that as a society, humans have actually improved in so many ways?
Bible times and the Middle Ages were terrible times to live! Life was cheap and readily taken. Human rights were non existent.
For instance, in bible times, women and girls were simply property to be abused as men wished. Even Gods nation could fight the neighboring lands and take the women and virgins off as captives for their "use".
We rightly find such conduct deplorable nowadays!
Also, people could be brutally stoned to death for disobeying some sort of (often petty) rule.
We find that also deplorable today!
So why have we improved as a society even though we are now so "far from perfection"?
