I suppose that's technically true, yes. I think the term 'permanent settlement' would have been more appropriate on my part. None of those prior, if memory serves.

probably out of context but if you ask me its gotta be verbal communication and then written language.
But in a perfect world, everyone would know the greatest scientific development to be Ayahuasca.

Yeah, perhaps it is recent, but without it we would still be in the 19th century. Now THAT'S impact!

To enforce my opinion I recommend watching Ancient Inventions with Terry Jones E03. Not all of those inventions come from gunpowder but in war in general. If we weren't so violent we'd be still living in caves trying to figure out if our planet is square or not

I'll have to abstain from voting. Neither sliced bread, nor indoor plumbing is on the list. The voting list has been rigged by TPTB, and I'm sure that Obama is somehow involved!
