They knew a lot about Mathematics, medicine, astronomy and mechanics that we don't fully understand. What happened was that knowledge is like a combination lock, when you find one number, you get closer to the next one and so on and so forth.

In the last 150 years, we just have unlocked many things we didn't know then. It doesn't make us more intelligent, just more informed.
This is exactly right. As individuals they were just as resourceful and intelligent as we are today, they're just working in a framework with less technology. Each technological advance, each metallurgical advance even, paved the way for further technological advances. It's not just in the last 150 years. Isaac Newton said:

"If I have seen further it is by standing on ye sholders of Giants"

It's not just technology either. Political stability is another indicator, the political stability to be able to travel freely and communicate freely, to share ideas.

That's why technology and scientific knowledge is improving at the rate it is. We can communicate freely to a degree never seen before. The sharing of ideas is probably more important than the actual technological base to build upon.
