Is the discovery of computer/ Internet really the greatest achievement to man?

There could be other achievements that facilitate man's life but to me, computer/internet is the greatest achievement. It cuts across from A to Z. Computer goes with internet and internet has brought people from all walks of life, every corner of the world close to each other. I can sit at home and make business online. I can use Pay pal to make what ever payment or remit my family abroad. For researh purposes, I can get volumes of information. I could even track the status of fligt till it landed when a family member was going back to my country after a short visit. What esle? Just think of anything and search for it in the internet you will get solution.This is my opinion. What about? Over to you for discussion.

No. Fire is the greatest invention of man to date and nothing can really occupy its place

That is great. There are so many great achievements hidden that are never thought of. I think we shall get to learn a lot from these discussions. Very fruitful discussions indeed.

it's actually an invention, not a discovery, and yes, computers is probably the greatest achievement of man.
