    For me the answer to this question is easy. Man chose to sin against God. When this happened mankind doomed itself.

    I think the one single biggest mistake of mankind is the invention of nuclear power and other weapons of mass destruction.

    On the Bible side it was the SIN that mankind inherited from Eve.On the bigger picture, I think the WARS that mankind have created over the centuries.

    There's greed, avarice, lust, and war. But the single biggest mistake of mankind is:

    Not learning from our previous mistakes.

    If we could do this we would have the Utopia everybody dreams of.

    The one SINGLE n BIGGEST reason according to me n above all the answer I saw is "creating DIFFERENCES"...... Differences, between rich n poor, between black and white, between big and small.........etc etc

    Just Think! greed, lust, jealous, wars and evrything is because of DIFFERENCES.........

    i would have to say losing faith in ourselves and other. instead we turn to inventing religion, we start wars or we hide in our own little world not caring or helping others. it's not greed, it's not stupidity but if anything it's weakness and selfishness.

    I think being close minded and not trying to understand others points of view is the biggest mistake mankind makes.  We make this mistake throughout history and it still affects us today.

    Had she not done it, this question would have been redundant!

    Money worship,This is why poor americans get poor health care or none at all.Many deaths that could have been prevented have occured because of people that are not able to pay being turned away.This is also seen in politics,Promises and fine speeches are made,millions of dollars,That could be used to put food and drink in the empty bellies we have right here in the U.S.A. are instead being spent on campaigns for those that want our vote.Money IS truely the root of all evil.

    Monotheism.  The extreme adherence to a monological doctrine and dogma has been the cause of death for the most people, throughout antiquity.  Its general direction is opposite of what progress dictates.
