    If fire was never discovered, would we be able to see in the dark?

    Well sure.  You would have a flashlight, wouldn't you?

    Blind people "Do thank you I don't need a fire I am all electric just switch on

    Not better than we see in the dark now. For we need the sensory down-time for replenishing and upgrading the capacities of our brains without significant external input. So our species traded reduced nocturnal self-protection for much ,more flexible, rapidly adaptive & resilient awareness & response capabilities.  Perhaps Yeti species remnants represent what we'd be if the nocturnal omnivision had been more adaptive.
