    It depends on the future. If we reach a point where living conditions regress because of  a human cause (i.e. global warming or nuclear war), yes. If living conditions change and improve through technologies and discoveries then we will most likely be referred to as primitive instead of ignorant.

    Not the way our education system is going, no.  We're ignorant compared to the generation of the '50's and earlier.

    If they were less hypocritical and judgmental, they would know they were ignorant too. But ignorant about what?

    Most likely. I mean you don't find people from the Middle Ages (5-15th century) more knowledgeable than us, do you?
