- (#4) The Moon Rock was listed as the 4th most important discovery in civilization. Rocks brought back from the moon on either a US expedition of one by a Soviet expedition have been measured by radiometric dating techniques.
- (#3) So here's another topic that I covered in my Graphic Arts class in high school. The discovery of the Rosette Stone. It is reported that this stone is the Code Book of the universe. It was discovered at Rosette in 1799 by Napoleon's army and proved the key to deciphering Egyptian Hieroglyphs.
- (#2) The importance of Coinage. The earliest coins appeared simultaneously in two places; China and western Asia Minor in the late seventy century B.C.
- (#1) And, the most important discovery that changed mankind was the Bible. It changed the course of history and was used in not only Christianity, but in Judaism and Islam. Skeptics claim that the Bible has been changed, however, it is important to define the terms that apply to the source of our English Bible. Autographs were the original texts written either by the author's hand or by a scribe under their personal supervision and could be changed if not understood by the writer of the document.
So, these are the five events or discoveries that allegedly changed the world. Whether you agree with it or not, they certainly were important. And, I think I found a very interesting TV channel that I will be watching again. It was another extraordinary day in the life of an ordinary guy.
