Actually Mamonides dealt with this exact same question in the 15th century.
He was asked: "You have said that the Holy One, blessed be his name, created
man so that man may form profound rational thoughts. Why is it, then, that
we see so many who are incapable of forming profound rational thoughts?
There is scarcely one scholar in a generation."
The Rambam answered thusly (paraphrasing):
"Those who cannot form profound rational thoughts are many indeed. The
Creator, blessed be His name, created those of lesser intellect for several
reasons. First, without them the scholar would have to master the skills of
planting, reaping, and cooking, plus the making of tools for these
endeavors. These activities would take time away from the scholar's profound
thoughts, just to make his daily bread. Therefore, those of intellect lesser
than the scholar were created to serve the scholar.
"A second reason is a consequence of your observation that scholars are
extremely rare; Those capably of only modest thoughts were created so the
scholar would not be lonely."
