Atomic weapons are a big deal.

Space race is my personal meme.

>the crusades being more relevant than the Arabs/Mongols
>slave trade more important than the colonization of the Americas

Rome's cool, but wasn't quite an "event", I'd say.

I was itching my balls as I read this. What does that mean?
>>
>>282538
It's not very hard to read, it means that this moment is most important because for it to happen all the other moments must have happened.

I don't know how much weight I'd put into that but that's what the post meant.

Industrial Revolution
China deciding to fuck off instead of taking over the world, during the 1600s
Rome versus Carthage
Spain and Portugal taking over South America

if we're talking about the human species, then sure controlling fire would have to be one of the most long term significant events, pretty sure even creationists don't think humans were created with the knowledge of how to make fire

>>282662
It's prehistory you moron, as in no historic record as in not history as in doesn't belong on the /his/ board
>>
>>282721
Call it natural history then, personally I would consider everything that happened more than 25 years ago as appropriate for /his/
>>
>>282721
and are you implying that fire, tools, agriculture etc, weren't necessary for the creation of societies with surplus resources that could be put towards less immediate concerns such as writing?
>>
>>282736
I'm saying that things without historic records are not history, it's not a hard concept.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prehistory

>>280519

The discovery of Algebra
The discovery of Analysis
The discovery of Set Theory
The discovery of Mathematical Logic
The incarnation of the Christ, our Lord Jesus
>>
>>282740
What are you calling historic records? does is pre-roman europe inappropriate for discussion? Or do you disagree with the sticky "archeology, anthropology"

do these 'prehistoric' archaeological findings not belong on /his/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Control_of_fire_by_early_humans
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natufian_culture

Or when do you draw you arbitrary line? end of the ice age, beginning of mesopotamian kingdoms, in which particular year did these events occur?

>>282752
Agriculture or Using tool is not really an historic event, it's a bit like saying "War", now if people said the production of "X" let's say Wheat through artificially selecting I could agree with that. But simply saying "Tool", "Fire", Agriculture" is stupid.
>>
>>282765
I agree that 'war' is stupid, especially when the scale of a conflict isn't important. I thought agriculture did only refer to the selective breeding and domestication of species for the purpose of increased food production. and for tool's, fire and agriculture there was a reasonably distinct period in out ancestry when these were not present and would seeming be valid as important events, even if the exact timing of the event is unable to ever be determined
>>
>>280519
What makes the slave trade important? Americans are literally the only ones who care
Surely the invention of the computer is much more important

1. Agriculture
2. Industrialization

3. Nationalism
4. Globalization
5. Digitilization

>>280519

All technological events.

My nominations are in no particular order

-the internet

-calendar
-code of laws

- Invention of scripts

>fall of rome
>>
>>280519
In terms of modern history and the visible effects its had on the world at present, I would put the washing machine/development of household labor saving devices as far more important than the Internet at present.

That may yet change over time, but speculating on where the Internet might take us doesn't help in a History discussion.
>>
>>282904
>crusades
>french and indian war

surely the napoleonic wars and WW2 would have to be more important
>>
>Development of agriculture
>Development of written language
>Industrial revolution
>Development of modern medicine
>Digitalisation
>>
>no invention of the computer

Y'all on the wrong side of history
>>
>>282915
franz ferdinand getting assassinated ultimately led to the treaty of verasilles and ww2, which is why I didn't include it
>>
>>282927
*versailles
>>
As far as historical events go,

>Some Mesopotamian bullshit I know little about
>Rise of the Roman empire
>Discovery of the New World
>Industrial Revolution
>Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand
>>
>>282927
Fair enough, why did you include the french and indian war? english debt due to this leading to colonial taxation leading to american revolution?
>>
I've seen many stupid tier list topics in my days, but I'll be damned if this isn't one of the dumber.
>>
>>282635
Holy shit, this list is actually decent.

>>280519
>Slave trade
>Crusades

How are these at all important on a macro-historical scale?

>>282904
>French and Indian war

You don't really think this was more important than, say, the Islamic conquests or the unification of China, or the Industrial Revolution do you?
>>
>so many people putting Franz assassination there
Why not just say WW1 (i'd personally say Versailles)? His death was just an excuse to start it all.
>>
>The october revolution.
>The elimination of the trotsky anti-party cadre
>The great patriotic war
>The death of stalin
>The sino-soviet split
>>
Not in any order
>invention of the stock market
>invention of lenses
>the western discovery of the world
>invention of mass production
>invention of Electricity
>>
> Birth of John Cena
>John Cena becomes a wrestler
>John Cena invents the F-U
>John Cena releases 'You can't see me'
>John Cena becomes WWE Champion
>>
>>280519
The death of Christ wasn't important at all. Any number of cults that sprang up in antiquity could have had the same impact.

Battle_of_Lutzen.jpg

Movements:
1. Agriculture (Paving the way for specialization and urbanization)
2. Rule of Law (Dito)
3. Writing (Leading to a bureaucracy and state-building)
4. Industrialization (Enabling unprecedented production yields and spearheading technological advancement.)
5. Digitalization (Dito)

Events: (Under less scrutiny and more centered on European history cause fuck you, world history is way too big)
1. Life of Jesus (Arguable origins/defining feauture of early middle ages and western Christian civilization)
2. Invention and spreading of the printing press (Integral to the European nation-state, empire-building and industrialisation)
3. Fall of Constantinople (Formative to European overseas expansion)
4. French Revolution (Rise of nationalism, imperialism and decline of European hegenomy)
5. Invention of the transistor (Leads to digitalisation and globalisation)
>>
>John Cena winning the US title
>>
I can't come up with five singular events, but if you don't include the death of Christ and the Industrial Revolution in your list then it's just 1000% wrong.

>John Cena being announced as Trump's running m8
>>
>>280519
Why would the slave trade be important?
>>
>>283348

this desu but i'd replace the F-U with the invention of the atomic bomb.
>>
1. Irrigation
2. Literacy
3. Industrial revolution
4. Transistor
5. Internet
[spoiler]0. Hentai[/spoiler]
>>
>>280519
I'd like to put 1. as a group of events
1. Fire, wheel, tools, agriculture, writing and by extent written laws

2. 2nd Punic war, only after reading a lot about Rome did i realize how pivotal Rome's victory over Carthage was

3. In the grand scheme of things, the 4th crusade set the conditions for the renaissance in the west, while spelling doom for the east, and the rise of the Ottomans

4. Industrial revolutions that brought us steam, industrialization, mechanization and electricity

5. Unification of Germany, or more likely the departure from Bismarck's foreign policy and the events that followed, WW1 and WW2
Bonus 6
6. The success of French and American democracies, because prior to that democracy was viewed as the least desirable form of rule.
