What do you reckon is man's greatest accomplishment?

  • Cultivation of crops and livestock, thus moving from a hunter-gatherer society to one in which different roles are possible for the majority of people
  • Development of buildings and shelter and warm clothing, thus allowing man to colonize all corners of the globe even inhospitable climes
  • Language, which allows learning to be passed down and knowledge to accumulate exponentially rather than each generation starting from scratch
  • Mastery of fire, allowing for heat, and cooking of food thus eliminating many sources of food-borne illness
  • Medicines in general, conquering most causes of early death and allowing productivity into your 70s, 80s and 90s
  • Refinement of coal, oil, gasoline, nuclear -- sources of power beyond the ken of manual or animal power
  • Putting a man on the moon -- not so useful in a day-to-day way but inspiring mankind to think bigger
  • The internet (and computers) which allow instant communication between people anywhere on the globe
  • Chuck Berry
