    Where’s Mathematics? That should be nearly on-par with Language.

    agriculture? agriculture led to a steady source of food (if weather permitted) eventually led to the first civilisations in mesopatamia, the first empires, the first cities and was arguably the most important revolution in human time.

    As far as God is concerned I am an atheist however everyone has a right to their own respective faiths. I have a problem with those who feel they must push what they believe on others. Believe as I say or face the consequences and most organized religions still hold to this concept and some to the extreme.

    The single most important invention was Guttenburgs’ printing press. Every advancement is a direct defendant of said invention. Without it we would all still be ignorant about science, medicine and religion. Which of course some would have liked.

    Also people carry on about God exisiting and asking non-believers to prove that he doesn’t. Well can the believers prove that he does?

    God doesn’t exist, he didn’t create paper, ink, the wheel, aeroplanes, ships, plastic etc, etc, it was creative people that gave us those!

    Humans have not been cooking for millions of years, as we have not been around even close to that long.

    The wheel of course! Without it we wouldn’t be moving faster than a horse anywhere. Carriages rolled with it, cars roll with it, trains roll with it and even planes take off with it. So how else would you commute to work if there hadn’t been a wheel invented?

    Think about it Einsteins!

    I don't think that many people know what the word "INVENTION" means. Electricity, Botany, Fire, Agriculture are not inventions!!! Some people said the wheel which is great, but the invention that should be #1 and isn't even on the list is ANTISEPTICS –soap– without it there would be no such thing as modern medicine.

    how about time

    that is, if you believe time is an invention used to prevent chaos and confusion(which it is) .

    what humans perceive as time, is really just matter reacting as the environment around it changes.

    its hard to explain, as almost everything is based on time

    but thats what i believe

    and i believe time is the greatest ever invention
