We were created like animals with a slight difference – the Ruh of Allah SWT. Hence humanity began life very similar to that of the animals but progressed over time – starting from hunting, moving on to farming and hence settling down into homes and villages and town and then cities.
Moving from the primitive stone age to the industrial and now the information age. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_history It is really Allah SWT who has been ensuring that Humanity progresses through these periods by sending Prophets (and after that the Imams) (peace be upon them all) to guide us through each age.
Modern science is based on the principles taught by Imam Jaffer e Sadiq (AS).
But all this is nothing but a way for Allah SWT to help humanity understand itself so that we can understand Him, and hence try and become like Him. The best reflection of His attributes are the Ambiya and the Aimma themselves, so in essence we are become as close to the Ambiya and Aimma to become like Allah SWT – Qurbatan Ilallah.
