Originally posted by Aelita If you must deviate into philosophical and abstract, then I should insist that the greatest invention was sex. After all, it allows us to procreate and therefor survice as species. Can't beat that.

My two cents in this would be simply world communication, or as we may call it the "internet" This has created a link of communication between the whole world, letting people gather information from all different sources. The more information is spread, the better the inventions will get as ideas will be able to be influenced by many people. So the greatest invention is the invention that creates more inventions.

You are all wrong,
The written word is the greatest invention ever.
If we didn't have it, we wouldnt be here along with most of the items mentioned above.
