This is something that ticks me off every time I see it- any documentary tends to infer that ancient peoples were stupid/less intelligent then us ("oh wow, look how they made x using only y primitive tools!") Everyone needs to realize that there is no fixed measure of intelligence, and that it is relative - these ancient groups were incredibly smart - as pointed out, the mayans with their astrological knowledge, and the middle east in the development of various mathematical things)...
That said, I don't think we need to worry about some external force bringing about the end of the world... humanity just needs to look in a mirror to see the cause.
Computer programmers do it byte by byte.
