Do you believe that the ancient Sumerians were an advanced civilization?


As a young man I was taught in school that it is only recently that we were the ones that truly discovered all the planets from Mercury to Pluto etc. Later on in life I became fascinated with ancient civilizations and have seen that some people believe that the Sumerians knew about these things thousands of years before everyone else. This would mean that they are advanced. Do you think that just because we have the internet , google search and the iPad 2 that we are more advanced than they were? Do some of you think that we are going backwards in some ways?
