The Most Critical Point in Human History?

That's a tough one but if I had to pick I'd probably go with when Homo Habilis, instead of running from fire as the other species did, not only approached it but managed and eventually created it on his own.............I mean, it's either that or Roger Daltrey's scream at the tail-end of "Won't get Fooled Again".

What about the time the lady spilled hot coffee on herself and abused the legal system to get rich from having done so?

Surely another turning point in history. And not a good one.

Agreed, although the paleoanthropological community continues to
argue about the
dating. The use of language and the invention of writing could also be considered
critical to the advancement of human civilization.

I'm surprised that that bimbo didn't sue Homo Habilis, dmarks.

And the there's the 800 pound gorilla in the room, BB; when Australopithecus Afarensis first got off the ground and started ambulating bipedally (being at a greater height allowing for farther vision and the ability to locate food, predators, etc.).
