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

The Nazis almost took over the world.

Big technologies change.

A crime against mankind.

2 Crucifixion of Christ

It is the only way for a just and righteous God to reconcile sinful people to Himself. Jesus died, the just for the unjust in order to bring us to God.
This event is really the only event, when believed upon in faith that has made it possible for people to live eternally with their Creator in peace. So the gift of eternal life through faith in Jesus's death and resurrection on our behalf, goes well beyond the few years of our earthly existence.

This event divided history in two. Every date is divided before Christ and after Christ. It changed the world. Christianity is the largest faith in the world. It influences everyone from the humanist atheist to modern secularist. As for believers it is the most important reason for their belief.

The event that caused history to be divided as we know it and who sparked a following that has lasted and flourished into the modern world. Christianity as a movement has inspired countless historical figures and shaped civilisations. And that is an objective view, if you consider the prospect of salvation offered to an entire race then Christ wins hands down without competiton.

Jesus paid the price for our sins on the cross, and rose from the dead to lead us into eternal life. Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection not only had an immeasurable impact on temporal human history, but will have the biggest impact for all eternity.

3 Landing on the Moon

I thought this was a major event because it was a race between the USA and Russia to land on the moon successfully and well, we did it.

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

In 10,000 years, only 2 things on this list will be remembered, the Moon Landing, and the first atomic warfare.

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

4 Invention of the Internet

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

It has changed our lives today, it made them easier and harder in certain ways

An average person in Europe uses internet two ours a day

5 Industrial Revolution
6 World War I

Without WW1 there would have been no ww2, korean war, vietnam war, cold war or war in the middle east.

This should be number 1

The worst thing ever

The Hell Of The World

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...

Security checks at airports increased, homeland security was invented, and American Nationalism rose

This terrorist attack still effects our life now because now we can't look at a jew without thinking "Terrorist"

8 Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

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.

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

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

9 First Voyage of Christopher Columbus

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.

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

The discovery of Pacific ocean by the spaniard vasco de balboa was better. (165 million of km2)

10 Birth of Muhammad

HE PBUH established the first ever welfare state in human history"The state of Madinah" which eventually became the Rashedun Caliphate.The state had equal application of rule of law ,even on the Caliph. The state of madinah taxed upon the rich in various forms like Jakat and spent that money sololy on the poor.Christian ,jewish and minorities were given the right to perform their worship with full security from the muslims under the state order established by the Prophet pbuh.

In the state women got the right of keeping property completly on her own authority.Got the right to choose any proffession and education with in the criteria of performing Hijab. Every citizen including women Got the right to criticize , accuse and ask for accountability face to face of their Calipha without getting punishment from him.Muhammad Pbuh declared freeing a slave as one of the most noble did a man can do.Even some one had to keep a slave, Muhammad Pbuh ordered to treat those slaves equal to ...more

Should be first, brought Quran which his a miracle in itself.

It should be first

The birth shaped the course of history:
Constantinople end
so on and so forth

The Contenders
11 The Black Death
12 The Neolithic Revolution

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

Agricultural Revolution should be #1~

13 Constantinople Conquered

The Muslims conquered the capital of the Roman Empire. More specifically it was the Turks who were once a backward people who were kicked out by the Mongols.

Constantinople still exists as Istanbul, Turkey.

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

14 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?

15 Cubs winning the 2016 World Series

Happiest moment in world history.

16 Woodstock

Changed the history showing the power of the hippie culture

17 The Holocaust

Most tragic event. Over 6 million innocent people died and I was lucky enough to meet a survivor. I will never forget his story.

Millions died and it changed the course of history forever on how we view literally everyone.

Death toll and effect on people

18 Cold War

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

19 Civil Rights Movement

The Black Society was able to have more rights and allowed them to have more successful lives.

What this was so important

20 Titanic Disaster

The first big, fancy(For the most part) ship failed, many died, and the captain who was going to retire died on his last voyage.

21 Great Depression

This effected everyone in the world...

22 Spanish Flu

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

23 Brexit
24 1960 Valdivia Earthquake

The most powerful earthquake ever recorded at magnitude 9.5.

25 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake and Tsunami

This was terrible. This earthquake and it's resulting tsunami killed over 230,000 people, caused a train wreck in Sri Lanka and caused devastating damage in the Indian Ocean coastline areas.

Watching the video of this event gets me every time

Worst natural disaster on record
