Im sorry but there is a big difference between millions of years and 300,000 years.
Early man lived as hunters and gathers. Many people still live that way. It has nothing to do with smarts.
About 15,000 years ago, some enterprising homo sapiens decided that they might try living in one place permanently and see how it worked out. It really caught on and remains the popular choice even today.

(I've got my eye out for Mullah Omar.)
I'll concede that evolutionists claim modern humans existed for only 300,000 years. They claim Lucy a human predecessor (really an extinct ape) was around 3.2 million years ago. And sometime between 3.2 million years and 300,000 years, evolution did it's magic and transformed the ape into man.
It's still a ridiculously long time to go without discovering agriculture.
I think the Bible is more credible. In one generation (or less) Cain began growing crops while Able became a hunter and livestock herder. And we have been growing and hunting and herding ever since.
