Biggest Events in Human History

List that contains immense events through human history.
The Top Ten
1 World War II

The Nazis almost took over the world.

Big technologies change.

A crime against mankind.

All because of jews.

2 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

3 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

4 Industrial Revolution
5 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

6 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.

7 Crucifixion of Christ

Without the shedding of HIS BLOOD, paying the price for our sins, humanity would be
or our souls be burning in the inferno. Jesus defeated death, HE is Risen and sitting on the right hand of our Heavenly Father.

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.

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 shaped the way we think and act so profoundly.
He gave us freedom from the fear of death.
We are no longer lost orphans; we are brothers and sons to a loving father who created us out of pure love.
Jesus died volunteerely so that we can live free.
Jesus showed us what we are truely made of and how great we can be.
If he is not God and if his resurection is not the greatest event in mankind history then show me any lifeform who can beat death and I will worship it.

8 The Black Death
9 Cold War

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

10 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?

The Contenders
11 Great Depression

This effected everyone in the world...

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.
