Survey: What was the most important year of all time?

Came across this really interesting survey on moreintelligentlife.com which asks, “What was the most important year of all time for you?”

The following were the contenders:

1. 5 BC – Jesus’ birth

2. 1204 – Christianity split by Crusades

3. 1439 – Gutenberg’s press

4. 1776 – United States is born

5. 1791 – Telegraph and Morse code are invented

6. 1944 – Modern ideological warfare takes off

7. 1945 – Nazism falls, bomb dropped, new world order
8. 1953 – DNA is discovered
9. 1989 – Berlin wall falls
10. 1990 – Nelson Mandela is released
11. 2009 – Copenhagen climate summit: last chance?

Cannot decide which is more important, although I just have to say listing 1776 as the most important year of all time because the USA was born is presumptuous.

Thoughts? Opinions? Any year you think should be more important than the ones listed? Discuss. Or go to moreintelligentlife.com and vote.
