    I think one of the most important things in modern history was Guttenberg and the printing press. (Yes, I know the Chinese had a form of printing before that, but practically speaking, it did not impact the world as much as Guttenberg's.) After that invention, knowledge and information was disseminated with blinding speed across Europe and the world.

    I know the Arabics were awesome in their science and other learning. However, the fact that they resisted the printing press (on religious and spiritual grounds) hampered them and led to their decline.

    Descartes' "I think, therefore I am" (however much it was misinterpreted or whatever) probably had the biggest impact on Western philosophical thought.

    Ben Franklin made major contributions in science & technology, as well as political thought. His experiements and inventions (particularly the lightning rod) with electricity alone would have sealed his reputation as a great mind.

    Similarly, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, Geo Washington and many others impacted greatly on the world, touching off the Age of Revolution. The USA was the first modern republic, and the impulse spread across Europe and the world.

    Let us not forget Francis Bacon, Isaac Newton, and John Locke.

    Edison of course is to be honored for his many inventions, especially the light bulb.

    Einstein revolutionized the way we perceive time and space.

    Whoever invented refrigeration needs to be remembered. That changed EVERYTHING for people. I'll have to research that person (by research I mean "Google").

    Other things which we take for granted have impacted us profoundly. The place holder in math, the period in writing, and the invention of the screw (I mean the thing you use to fasten things together, perverts...) are all major. Of course there's the wheel. I suppose the names of the inventors of these things are lost to history.

    The list would be endless, but there're a few I consider important.

    Love, Jack.

    I believe you. some years in the past I went to a make over day and had some pictures taken, plenty human beings have been there, aside from looking good, it made me comprehend merely what fashions could wade by to look good. consistent preening, touching in, re-utilising, diffused lights, contrived posing etc. This all happens inspite of fashions looks/length. I even have defined this to my daughter from an incredibly early age and could take her presently to have the comparable therapy - so she would be in a position to ascertain first hand that there is not any way in accepted residing that she would be in a position to assume to equivalent what she sees in a mag. perchance a 'at the back of the curtain' look at this area will convince different youngsters of the comparable. by the way, I in no way purchase magazines or newspapers the two. I even have introduced my daughter as much as make her judgements in accordance along with her very own reasoning. She is greater properly balanced than i'm - all this and she or he isn't yet sixteen.
