what do you think we the most important scientific discovery ever in human history...

some say it's domesticating horses and other animals.

i believe it was the foundation of scientific method...

that's right i'm putting Descartes before the horse.

The discovery of porn.

It's been occuring in nature for so many years, but the day in which mankind managed to harness it's power was a beautiful stride for the development of our species' singles.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

really? scientific method? really?

no offence, but this is always a bit of a stupid question, because discoveries are cumulative. if you follow it back and think it through, the foundation of scientific method is dependent on the domestication of horses; without that, interaction between communities would have been harder, the world would be limited to much smaller economies due to that lack of interaction, technological advances wouldn't have been made, scientific method would be a moot point.

How is taming a horse a scientific activity?

And foundation of a method isn't a scientific discovery either. It's just creating a method.

Either the law of falling bodies, the law of gravity, the laws of motion (All Gallileo) or Copernicus saying the Sun is the center of the galaxy.

Quote by The OED
1. a. The state or fact of knowing; knowledge or cognizance of something specified or implied; also, with wider reference, knowledge (more or less extensive) as a personal attribute. Now only Theol. in the rendering of scholastic terms (see quot. 1728), and occas. Philos. in the sense of ‘knowledge’ as opposed to ‘belief’ or ‘opinion’.


all knowledge is science.

This.

Maybe the greatest discovery was fire, or that us monkeys could put a seed in a hole and grow a whole new plant out of it?

But then again it could be that us monkeys found out that we could walk on two hands, allowing us to use our two other hands to do more productive things, like make simple tools. Or maybe discovering that we could make simple stone tools was it?

You could go on forever like this.

So equally, me knowing my name is scientific.

Stop being a pedantic idiot, you know very well that it is not a discovery at all.
#21
the discovery of fire?...

or maybe when apes discovered that big black straight wall whcih also appeared on the moon and near Jupiter


P.S. to the T.S.: Domesticating was not a discovery but an invention of the early human to travel larger distances, hunt bigger animals and tape bestialism into their wooden video cameras

Actually if you look at it domestication is important it allowed us to plough more land, keep animals closer to us for food, horses and oxen in particular could pull things, horses could be mounted, cows and sheep domesticated wouldn't run away meaning we could settle down easily and not have to wonder with herds in order to feed.

It is a conspiracy devised by the liberal, secular elite to remove the truth of the Gospel from the mainstream.

Poor logic.

I could argue that realising certain berries were posionous is the greatest discovery of all time, otherwise the human race would have gone extinct.

Obviously. Why do you think so many scientists push this "science" of evolution? It's because they want to remove Jesus from his rightful place in society. There are some rational scientists, though, who realize the foolishness of this situation, such as Kent Hovind.

Yeah, they chained some poor minimum-wage guys to their ancient word processors and refused to feed them until they'd finished.

Hovind is a wise, grounded individual indeed. Have you been to his lectures? It's like I was opening my eyes for the first time.
