Good idea.
His unification of his empire was a huge influence on the West, and even Biblical Palestine, and the Roman era.
In fact that's probably the best one yet, after Muffers.

Maybe. The jury might be out on that one. Big Grin

Muffs, you got plenty of options here. Take your pick so we can get this cleaned up and rolling!

So many cats, so few good recipes.

The invention of cooking. Seriously.

Or the discovery of how to start, and use, and control fire ?

Or the invention of Worcestershire sauce.

Seriously, though, cooking food does not obviously follow from having fire.

RE: Putting on my serious face. Open historical debate.
I'll assume this is most important in modern history and forgo the "day" of the big bang, or the day life began, human evolved, etc.

I'm going to go with Newtons discovery of gravity (1677) or the day he published his paper on it (05JUL1687). Not only was it the beginning of modern science, but it also had far reaching philosophical, and religious impacts that I suppose even he did not fully appreciate. Without Newton who knows where we would be today? We would have surely discovered it, and appreciated it's impact but who knows how far the delay would have prevented us from making the leaps and bounds in knowledge that we have made?
