Top 10 Geniuses

The Top Ten

1 Leonardo Da Vinci (1452 - 1519)

Greatest genius of all time. The one and only universal genius.

2 Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

You simpleton he never stole from other scientists and he was the greatest genius I wouldn't expect a moron to understand

"If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or objects." his quote suits best on him

He isn't a genius he stole and copied the works from other two scientists.

He makes the world easier

WH Auden - MikeFuller

8 Nikola Tesla (1856-1943)

Nicola tesla gave us that much no.. Of important things which no one could ever gave. Others researched the things in science but Nicola Tesla invented... Surely the underrated genius

10 James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879)

I would say JC Maxwell had the greatest mind of his time and the greatest scientific influence. Without his elecric and magnetic interactions, light would not have been seen as an EM Wave. Without that, Einstein would not have proved that nothing can exceed light speed. And we would not have had mass explained the way it was. Planck would not have come up with the quantised theory of light which sparked quantum mechanics, and so, no explanation of the atom after Rutherford. So Maxwell definitely gets my vote. - PositronWildhawk
