My birth. Without it all history would not exist to me. So, cheers, Mam.

Does the OP preclude prehistoical events? It seems that for example if some prehistorical events hadn't occurred, we wouldn't have any historical events, no matter how important, if humans hadn't evolved or achieved civilisation. So isn't this a matter of the "chicken and the egg"?

Picking more modern events seems to me to be a bit shortsighted, to say the least.

The invention of writing. Without it, we'd be stuck in pre-history.

The invention of language. Otherwise, if it happened, Jesus getting up and walking out on the Holy Imperial Scumbags.

I too would say language, without it no communication what-so-ever.

Even if not for all the right reasons, we humans are in fact capable of the near-impossible - when we put our minds to it.
Something to remember anyway considering our usual myopic selfishness...
