Greatest Minds In History

41 Thomas Edison Thomas Edison

Without a formal education he is holding 1093 patent? This man should be among the first three.

Thomas Edison is a professional inventor.

He is one of the most worst inventors ever, he didn't even make the lightbukb which every person thought he did.

I would vote for Nikola Tesla but he doesn't need much help. I just stay here and trash talk Edison. He didn't invent his patents he bought them. He electricuted animals, decided not to use radar that Nikola Tesla invented in WWI. I could go on and on this person should be number l on top dumbest people in history

42 Thomas Aquinas

This great Saint gave us not only the greatest proofs for Gods existence but his clear minded genius gave us also the greatest proofs against Gods existence. Who else can argue with the objective clarity of this great intellectual?

43 Niels Bohr Niels Bohr Niels Henrik David Bohr was a Danish physicist who made foundational contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum theory, for which he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922. Bohr was also a philosopher and a promoter of scientific research.

Niels Bohr did some of the greatest and most significant and most rule-bending physics known to man. He deserves a pretty high rank on this list. - PositronWildhawk

50 Bill Gates Bill Gates William Henry "Bill" Gates III is an American business magnate, entrepreneur, philanthropist, investor, and programmer.

Thinking outside the box always, very innovative and should be in the top 10.

The most genius and hardworking person ever to be bornon this Earth. Without Bill Gates there wouldn't have been Microsoft and Their Services. The most brilliant person.

3rd on this list.

52 Charlie Chaplin Charlie Chaplin Sir Charles Spencer "Charlie" Chaplin, KBE was an English comic actor, filmmaker, and composer who rose to fame in the silent era.

Chaplin was an absolute genius. Most people think of him just as a comedian, as 'The Little Tramp', but he directed, wrote, edited and most other things for most of his full-length pictures. Also composed all the film music, too. How many people dared to take the piss out of Hitler at the very time? 'The Great Dictator' is not just a great movie, it's a historical document (as some other films by him too). He was also a real humanitarian, activist and pioneer in many ways.
