What is the greatest Discovery/Invention of man?

October 7, 2009 11:58pm CST
For me the greatest invention of man is electricity. It's because if we don't have electricity computers won't run. And we can't have this new technology right now. We use electricity in many ways and it seems that it is now hard for us to live without it. Since most of the things that we use in the modern word requires electricity.

Two are the greatest invention of the humans. The first one, the base for anything else is the language. Without the language we could be nothing. And the second one is the writing. Writing changed the way to exchange knowledge, and given us the way to start complex projects.

I'm going to say the wheel. Without wheels, those electric generators would not work.

Yes I agree with you, the greatest invention ever is electricity. Look at how much the technology grew since people know how to use electricity. In the past time, people could not even imagine that sophisticated devices such as computers, televisions, mobile phones and etc can be invented. My career field is electric power engineering, I chose this field because I know that human will always rely on electricity for their lives.
