Biggest Events in Human History

List that contains immense events through human history.

The Top Ten

1 World War II

Hitler is jealous that England won world war 1

Big technologies change.

A crime against mankind.

The Nazis almost took over the world.

2 Crucifixion of Christ

number 1

Saves the whole mankind

Seriously, we base time off of this event. Come on, it’s the truth

This created a religion. Most important event ever.

3 Landing on the Moon

Huge discovery for man

Landing on the moon is the biggest thing in history!

It still blows my mind we were able to achieve this. What's next, a frigging gas giant landing?

This will be more important in the future because it will mark the first time that people went on a place other than earth. - Harri666

4 Invention of the Internet

An average person in Europe uses internet two ours a day

Started obesity epidemic, physical interface, pear-shaped bodies as the norm.

5 Industrial Revolution
6 World War I

To The End Of All Wars, Ends Nothings

The Hell Of The World

This should be number 1

The worst thing ever

7 9/11

No one can ever forget this every year at every school in America you see them talking about this event. It's because it was so horrible and it was tragic...

8 Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

No offense america but you put the 9/11 bombings above this is insane yes the twin towers and the pentagon being destroyed was a tragedy but it fails in comparison to the amount of death and tragedy of the Japan bombings

Huge events to be sure, but calling them "culmination of racism against Asian people" is so much revisionist claptrap.

The bombing at Hiroshima showed that man could destroy himself. The bombs also were the culmination of decades of racism against Asian peoples in America which was likely an extension of the global "East-West" conflict.

9 The Neolithic Revolution

How was this not on here? Without it, we would still be nomads! - Turkeyasylum

Agricultural Revolution should be #1~

10 Woodstock

Changed the history showing the power of the hippie culture

Not even close.

A great thing to be sure, but not even the best thing that happened in 1969.

The Contenders

11 Discovering the New World

We wouldn't have bacon if it didn't happen

They didn't discover the new world, there were already native americans

A famous French explorer Christophe Colomb discovered America and new civilizations in 1492.

12 The Black Death
13 Cubs winning the 2016 World Series


Sorry but how is this more important and impactful than the Black Plague?

Happiest moment in world history.

14 Constantinople Conquered

No one can imagine the most powerful 1300 years stronghold of the roman empire will fall to the hand of a new era

Constantinople still exists as Istanbul, Turkey.

15 Birth of Muhammad
16 Gutenberg Invents the Printing Press

Rightly so, This has been voted as the highest the 1001-2000 millennium. The advent of the printing press brought reading to the masses. Could ideas like democrarcy have spread, revolutions have happened without this?

17 Indian Ocean Earthquake & Tsunami

Watching the video of this event gets me every time

Worst natural disaster on record

This was bigger than 9/11

18 Brexit
19 Cold War

i agree

An indirect conflict between two sides: East, URSS and West, the American.

20 1960 Valdivia Earthquake
21 Eruption of Vesuvius‎
22 Great Depression
23 Spanish Flu

Worse than the Black Death, more than 40 million people died.

24 Titanic Disaster

Also the disaster of getting your knickers in a twist overreaction of three cartoon Titanic movies because they had a fairytale ending instead of the disaster ending. (Oh ok, the second film just had the Octopus rescue, the rapping dog could've died in the first)

25 Civil Rights Movement
26 Invention of the Hologram
27 The Fall of The Roman Empire
28 Gravity is Discovered

Yup that's pretty big

29 Nonviolent Liberation of India
30 The Mongol Conquests

32 Trojan War
33 The Advent of Capitalism
34 Last Manned American Rocket Launch

On July 18, 2011, America launched its last manned rocket, the 125th Shuttle, into space, putting an end to Manned American Rockets.
Almost a million people in the area, and those in the rest of the world, cheered for the entire minute, and cried nonstop afterwards, it has been one of the biggest, and saddest, days in modern history.

We'll never get to put Americans into space ever again with american technology, let alone Russians.
