Human beings should be familiar with many of the important dates in the history of the world. That's because it will benefit all of us if this knowledge is secured in our brains. Think you can name some? This quiz will be a good challenge to you, then!
The earth is not very young, nor is it very old yet. But since we have been existing for thousands of years on this planet, we human beings should know a thing or two about what happened before we came. It's great to be familiar with our own personal history. But give that a bigger context and contrast it with what happened in other parts of the world at the same time. For example, the year you were born, do you know if an important historical event happened that year? Was it a tragedy, a victory or a cautionary tale that we are using today as a guide?
History could teach us a lot about the human condition. It could also warn us of the possible mistakes that we could commit -- again -- if we don't learn from the lessons of the past. Indeed, there have been repeat victories as there are repeat tragedies. Here's hoping that history could again teach us anew -- and steer us down the safer path.
Take this quiz now and see if you're up for this challenge!
