Gets the nod over DiVinci. Notice how all the top geniuses are not of our generation? Wonder why? Ha ha ha.

His 'Principia Mathematicia' is considered one of the most amazingy and brilliant examples of abstract thought. - MikeFuller

14 Michael Faraday (1791-1867)
15 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
