Haven't read the whole thread but in my opinion it has to be Language, more specificly, the written languange.

Without it we would still be struggling to form societies and build great projects. Most of Mankind's advancement's have been due to being able to pass knowledge down through the centuries rather than having to rediscover it every time.

I agree with the posters that said fire is the most important invention of all, but someone should have mentioned this much, much earlier: AGRICULTURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Somehow everyone else managed to forget to mention the basis for the rise of all civilizations?!!!! So sad.


Without it, many of us wouldn't exist because no large population can ever be supported by hunting and gathering.

And after that, no one else has mentioned the invention that has quite possibly saved billions of lives? I'll give you a hint: it comes from fungi.

Yeah, that's right, it's freakin' PENICILLIN!

I'm going to have to say "mankind" was the best invention I am aware of, though time may prove it to be the worst.
