I don't think man has changed.That is why it is said
"No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind." 1 Corn 10:13
Our temptations have not changed, and because we still are driven by the same flesh we repeat history.
"What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. " Ecc 1:9
" Where do wars and fights come from among you? Do they not come from your desires for pleasure that war in your members? 2 You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. " James 4:1
Our wars are over the same old things, our vices are the same old things, our history is a long line of T.V. re-run's with different names attached to old roles.
