    The renaissance has changed the world likely more than any other period (except the Digital Age I suppose), when the renaissance began we were coming out of a very bad time, there had been little to no scientific advancements in Europe and the Black Plague was just then slowly dying out in the population. Because of the black plague, our entire view of life changed to something that should be cherished, and that obviously completely relying on the church wasn't very effective, man decided to rely mostly on man. Europe was kicked into overdrive and art, architecture, and philosophy of the Greeks and Romans were brought back. The term "Renaissance Man" is another term for a polymath, or someone whose expertise stretch over a wide field, for example a well known polymath was Leonardo da Vinci who was an artist, botanist, engineer, writer, mathematician, and all around genius. It could even very well be claimed that the United States Bill of Rights was a result of the renaissance, before it men didn't dare cross the church or religious powers in general. Because of the "freedom from religion" idea that spread during that time, men like Thomas Jefferson began to feel like it was okay to allow an entire nation to choose its own religion as opposed to being forced into one. Though I suppose I'm rambling, you need five examples of something directly influenced by the renaissance? Modern Medicine Modern Engineering Methodology Opera Perspective in Art (It became common to account for distance and paint in a way that reflected realistic perspective, as opposed to seeming very Two-Dimensional) Music (Though not modern music, to be frank people living in the renaissance may roll in their graves if they knew what we considered music today) people that drew influence and inspiration from the renaissance later went on to invent instruments such as the piano which allowed some of the greatest musicians in history to express themselves and compose pieces that are still considered masterpieces today.

    We began to study human anatomy and think of diseases as things that could be prevented as opposed to divine wrath. Going back to da Vinci he actually sketched out the human fetus which early doctors studied to get a better idea of how the human body operates.

    Detailed blueprints and design. Look at this for example; http://uploads5.wikipaintings.org/images/leonardo-da-vinci/one-of-leonardo-da-vinci-s-designs-for-an-ornithopter.jpg This is a sketch for a possible "flying machine" close to 500 years before the Wright Brothers airplane.

    In fact a few ornithopters have been built and its been shown they're totally capable of sustained flight, they're just terribly inefficient by todays standards.

    I can find many examples of the Renaissance. The columns in some buildings. Also in modern day opera. Perspective in Art has changed throughout history since the Renaissance. It became common to account for distance and paint in a way that reflected realistic perspective. Music has changed so much. People that drew influence and inspiration from the renaissance later went on to invent instruments such as the piano which allowed some of the greatest musicians in history to express themselves and compose pieces that are still considered masterpieces today. Renaissance has even affected modernday medicine. We began to study human anatomy and think of diseases as things that could be prevented as opposed to divine wrath. Going back to da Vinci he actually sketched out the human fetus which early doctors studied to get a better idea of how the human body operates. The Wright Brothers actually stole the idea of the plane from Leonardo Davinci when they saw a sketch of the "flying machine" Leonardo crafted 500 years before they invented the plane.

    Haha, you never spoke about da Vinci before the "Going back to" so you may want to just put "Leonardo da Vinci actuall sketched out..." The Wright Brothers didn't steal anything, man has always wanted to fly, they were simply engineers and inventors in a different time period that finally succeeded. What Leonardo designed was simply being used as an example of engineering. :)
