Yes, he built the log cabin he was born in. We have lost these skills. I have to buy my meat instead of spending days hunting it. Sad. People instead of building fabrication facilities for making their own CPU's are indeed buying them. Many do not even make their own clothes or cars or houses, people have become degenerate.

Using little to solve bigger in the form of computers is smarter in my opinion. Man had to move forward one day. The people in the past didn't have the skills we have today either.

Well, you might be. The knowledge to learn to do all those things is now at the tip of your fingers if you want to learn how to do them. It will require not being lazy 100% of the time.

You are looking only at one side , if we have lost some skills then we have gained some skills too, that's how life evolves , abhraham lincoln built log cabin but did abhraham lincoln know how to hunt like the cave man ? the answer is no because he didn't need to hunt like him in the same manner time and the way life evolves make certain skills redundant those are replaced by other skills.

Yes, the loss is especially dramatic in the last four or five generations. When I was a kid, every woman could sew her own clothes and cook. Most men could fix anything that broke down. Now women can't boil water and the man can't figure out how to use the remote. Some say that it is a reflection of the species crossing over the peak and now existing on the down slope of it's existence. In other words, our best days are behind us. Everything eventually has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Looks like we're close to the end..and is that such a bad thing?

these days it is hard to entirely lose skills as so much has been recorded that if we needed to pick it back up for whatever reason there is a good chance that we will be able to. necessary skills for survival have changed over the years and will continue to change into the future but we will always need to know something and learn more.

We can do what we care to do. Example: Even though I can buy any prepared food I might want to eat, I make all my food from scratch. I enjoy it and allows me to know what I'm consuming.
