The Top Ten

1 Jesus Christ Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4). ...read more.

One day Satan and Jesus were having a conversation.
Satan had just left the Garden of Eden, and was mocking and laughing
Saying:If Lord. Just seize the world full of people down there. They set a trap, used bait I knew they could not resist.
They fell all! What you do with them? Jesus asked.
Ah, I'm gonna have fun with them. Answered
Satan. Them teach how to marry and divorce, how to hate and
Abusing each other, to drink and smoking and of course, I will teach to invent guns and bombs to
Destroy each other. I really going to have fun! What will you do when you get tired of them? Jesus asked. Ah, the kill. Satan said with eyes full of hatred and pride. How much you want for them? Jesus asked.
Ah, you do not want those people. They do not
Are good. Why would you want to take. You take them and they hate you.
Spit your face, curse you and kill you. You do not want those people!
How much? Jesus asked again. Satan looked at Jesus and said ...more

I am happy to read that jesus is accepted as a man and not god... Yes he is a prophet and messenger of allah, like that of moses and muhammed...

Jesus is the Saviour and He is the Son of Almighty God, born of the Holy Spirit, He healed the sick, raised the dead.

God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son Jesus for the sins of mankind so that nobody should perish but have Eternal Life in Christ Jesus.
We as Christians, believe He was crucified bore our sins on the Cross, for all mankind, and was raised from the dead on third day and ascended into heaven and is seated at the right side of Almighty God, and He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

Even if you don't believe in him, being crucified for all of his people, even the ones who hated him or who weren't his people, is way better than what Muhammad did. Muhammad got everything from God and then said it was from Allah. Jesus got every single thing he spoke from his God and gave all the glory to him. He did everything for us so that even the most awful of people could make it into Heaven because He loves us so. Allah only loves those who are fantastic. Is it true love if you have to earn it? If any Muslim can follow what Muhammad did, does that make him perfect? Jesus was and is perfect. No human can ever attain that level of greatness.

Yeah that's right but the scripture doesn't say like that Satan and Jesus were having a conversation...The Bible say Matthew 4:1-10 Satan tempted Jesus that what the Bible says..
Sorry brother don't add the Word of God
In Revelation 22:18-19
v.18
For I testify unto every man that hearth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
v19
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of this book of life,and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

2 Muhammad Muhammad (570 AD - 632 AD) was an Arabian Prophet, best known as the central figure (and last prophet) of the Abrahamic religion of Islam and is amongst the most revered and important historical figures in the world.

He is the last prophet allah has sent to earth he is the greatest person to walk this earth the greatest leader in his years he conquered the world fairly and while he ruled he ruled fairly he is my role model and should be a role model for everyone

I like Prophet Mohammed not because of he was the last messenger sent by Allah. I like/love him for his work for Islam and spreading message of Allah the true created of this world. And restricted us to stop worshipping stone god made by ourselves. He taught us way of living and give message of brotherhood, love, and peace. His every action is a message for humanity.

MY CHOICE OF THE GREATEST PERSON OF ALL TIME IS PROPHET MOUHAMMED(PBUH). AND HE ALSO IS THE LEADER OF ALL MuslimS. HIS LIFE IS VERY GOOD EXAMPLE FOR ALL OF US. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT HIM SO PLEASE STUDY ABOUT HIS LIFE I HOPE YOU WILL LIKE

Yes. You are right. He is most misunderstood due to media hype. Every individual should study his life for right perception.

His enemies who did not accept his message and yet they trust him with their deposit, that he would give it back to them when asked. He was asked by Pagans Arabs to give up on message of Islam in return would make him the richest man in Mecca but he replied them, even if the offer is the sun on the right hand side and moon on the left hand he would not give up the message of Islam.

In New Testament he is recognized as The Spirit of the Truth and Old Testament he is recognized like one who would have characteristic of Moses.

Moses received the word of God at Mount Sinai, Mohamed received at Mount Era. Moses fled motherland, so did Mohamed. Moses won over his enemy and so did Mohamed. Moses married and had children and so did Mohamed. Moses was leader, warrior and statesman with authority and so was Mohamed. Moses had natural birth and death and so did Mohamed and many more similarities in them.

Every Muslim should be accept our nabi sunna. After that allah will protect us.

Muhammad was not simply a Messenger and a Prophet revered by Muslims... Moreso he is a mercy for all of humanity and his example is the only perfect one, his conduct with his followers and rejecters was exemplary teaching humanity respect and tolerance. The child, was given special attention and respect, each ones potential discovered and celebrated. He never discriminated in race or disability and the privilege of raising the call to prayer was given to the blind man and the black man.
His first wife was a widow fifteen years his senior and and every other woman he married after her death was either a widow or a divorcee with the exception of Aaisha who married him with her own consent at an age that was neither frowned upon or contrary to the customs of that era. Each of his marriages was a privilege and honour for the women and their respective families and they honoured and enjoyed this special relationship with Muhammed. His lifelong effort was to save every human from the ...more

He is the be of all he must be on top of the list because he is the only one who direct contacts.

3 Albert Einstein Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science.

He was a great man who perfected many of the raw ideas that Newton came up with. Without him, we would probably have never gone to the moon in 1969, nor made such advances in technology.

True, but to say that he's a greater person than Jesus is just insane.

Some look down at the dirt, some at each other and others at the heavens. None understood what they were looking at as much as he did.

I don't know why michael jackson is n he list. I mean he is great but there are far better and greater persons than him. Pop stars like him come and go. He wont be remembered for more than 300 years and that too at the mst. But einstien, gandhi, newton and various others will live for more than thousands of years. They are immortal. And this list is not god at all. It is a pretty ignorant one.

God created the universe and sir Albert Einstein gave us a key to understand cosmos and mind of god. He is the greatest scientist the world has ever seen. He gave us the concept of space and time. Without him we cannot understand gravity. Sir Albert Einstein gave us a path to explore cosmos and ultimate to understand our own origin.

4 Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement.

He should be third on the list! I mean Albert did some pretty cool things but Martin Luther King helped everyone in America understand they needed to treat black people better. This is probably one of the best things to do. Help people understand whats right and whats wrong and persuade them to do it. I couldn't have done it. He is undenialbly an angel and is living in heaven in peace.

A beautiful human being who taught love, peace, equality, compassion, and non-violence.

The pioneer of the Civil Rights Movement that essentially became the death of the Jim Crow Segregation of the Confederate South, that had brutally oppressed, lynched, murdered, and persecuted blacks from the end of Reconstruction.

His "I have a dream" speech is immortal.

His teachings of God's love for all human beings and how we are all to treat each other as equals, human beings, and brothers is just so beautiful.

Had he not been assassinated, race relations in America could have been so much better

Martin Luther King Jr. is amazing, despite the awful discrimination that African-Americans went through he fought for justice!

Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the greatest people to walk the earth if not the greatest. Such a great orator with such great thoughts and just one aim... being able to see people of all races sit together on the table of brotherhood. It is upon us, the children of today, the adults of tomorrow to fulfill his great dream. Let us join our hands to make the world a better place to dwell in so that his soul may Rest In Peace. Let us look at each other as brothers and sisters. Let us do our part in the world... remembering that even the smallest person can make a huge difference and each one of us could be that one small person...

5 Mahatma Gandhi Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India.

The Man of the Century

It took one remarkable man to defeat the mighty British Empire and free a nation of 350 million people. His goal was freedom for India. His strategy was peace. His weapon was his humanity.

Father of our nation. An ambassador of peace who taught us non violence. A great leader of India who got us Independence without fighting a conventional war with the British.

True libertarian greed his people form the British without any kind of violence. But true understanding and consciousness

Gandhi is undisbutably the greatest living human of all time. He changed the world. Literally. Technology is superb, but Gandhi implemented a peaceful revolution that changed the way the population viewed the world. He gave an example of true freedom, a type of freedom that didn't need murder, killing, or even an offensive strategy. He valued true freedom (the freedom to accept the consequences of his actions), and life before anything else. He is a man that is worthy of anyone's respect.

6 Buddha Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni Buddha, or simply the Buddha, after the title of Buddha, was an ascetic and sage, on whose teachings Buddhism was founded.

He is the Greatest Human to ever born..
Not to compare Buddha with any other being.

He never killed anyone. He even converted a Angulimala (a Bandit)
Who killed 999 peoples. Can you Imagine a person who killed 999 people got surrendered into the feet of Lord Buddha (Blessed one). So think of the
Moment when the Angulimala would have been surrendering under him..

His teachings spread peacefully unlike others like Muhammad.

He is perfect combination of Both Mind and Body that the world has ever produced.

Victory to Buddha... Victory to Buddhism.

Buddha taught us non violence, peace and love for all the creatures in the universe. He said a man who is born has to die one day. He did not believed in miracles and superstition. He taught us the scientific way of living.

Buddha taught us non violence, peace and love for all the creatures in the universe. He said a man who is born has to die one day. He did not believed in miracles and superstition. He taught us the scientific way of living.
We are blessed to have one such person and his given religion known to us.

Yes you are right Buddha or be ambedkar should be first. Well you wrote a thing which is a great boost people reading it. Thanks for writing

The Buddha spread teachings of Love, Enlightenment and Peace to tens then hundreds then millions after that. He suffered for years to find the Way to Enlightenment, and had great Compassion to all Beings and Saw the Way of All Things.

Yes that's true, except for the seeing of all things part, but that doesn't necessarily make him the greatest person. Jesus did all those things, but even to a greater extent!

The first Spiritual Scientist of the world. He helped people aee things scientifically rather than based on superstitions. He preached love kindness and compassion which is also the need of the hour. He thought non- violence and love to all living beings including animals. His teaching brought peace, hope, Happiness and wisdom, universal brotherhood. He never said believe me because I am saying. He said apply and if you get results than believe. He never proclaimed himself God.

7 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.

Abraham Lincoln preserve the Union,This meant that the United States of American would continue to exist as a united nation after the U.S. civil war. Therefore as one united country the U.S. would be more able to positively influence world events in the future.

Honest Abe was the man who destroyed slavery. He had many hardships in his life, such as his son dying, him being President when the country was divided, and eventually being shot. He was a great man.

The greatest president of not just USA But any where else in the world. Freed the slaves but thought the world of equality and justice.

A pragmatist who had to unite his nation while it was split into shreds though not really an honest abe he is still admirable.

8 Moses

This guy is great he should be number 2 after Jesus.

Amen

Moses peace be upon him

First human to teach, preach equality of genders and downtrodden people of his times. The one who also dared to raise his voice against the injustice done, Also preached for oneness of ALMIGHTY.

The greatest preacher of social and human values. Messenger of universal brotherhood preacher of love,equality. Stood against ritualism, preached honest living and sharing with others. Millions of salutations.

9 Nelson Mandela Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist, who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the country's first black chief executive, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election.

This person came from being in prison for almost 30 years, and then became the president of South Africa. This person taught people that you must forgive to move on. HE has many more outstanding achievements, but overall, he should be in the top ten in my opinion.

I am a South African and this man was responsible for a lot of death's, nobody ever sticks around for the whole story, what he did was great but apartheid would have ended without him.

Nelson should be number one by a mile. He overcame apartheid (white supremacy) in South Africa single handedly, survived prison for almost thirty years, and became president of a white supremacist nation. He valued education over anything, and was a feminist. He taught people to love instead of hate. He is the best human being this world has ever seen.

Seriously letting him below chuck norris is a shame... He is the father of piece, love, forgiveness, dignity, equality and of course the father of Africa.

10 Isaac Newton Sir Isaac Newton PRS was an English physicist and mathematician who is widely recognised as one of the most influential scientists of all time and a key figure in the scientific revolution.

Literally the best to ever set foot on this planet. Just look around you and be assured that everything you see can be traced back to him.

I bet all the souls in the existence of all the humans that ever walked the earth, that without Isaac Newton, future evolution of technology would be impossible if he never existed. He is my role model and he has motivated most humans to try new stuff and not the usual stuff we would normally do, Gravity is the best friend of Dr. Newton. His theory of Gravity will help us invent Time Travel which is just ten years away from now (2018)
I will travel back to his time and tell how he's the hero of humanity.

Sir Isaac Newton is best known for discovering the law of gravity, creating the field of calculus, and finding out that white light is composed of many colors. He is also really known for inventing three standard laws of motion, referred to as "Newton's Laws". Who are those stupid people who think Bruce Lee has been more influental that Sir Isaac Newton? We are all Newtonians!

How is he not 1st(or at least the best non-religious figure)? he's greater than Einstein, and he more than trumps mlk and abe combined. those two may be more relevant, but over all time of things their contributions dwarf in comparison to Isaac

11 Michael Jackson Michael Joseph Jackson was an American singer, dancer, and songwriter born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana and passed away on June 25, 2009. He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or under ...read more.

Michael JACKSON - singer, dancer, composer, performer, writer, choreographer, producer, actor, businessman, philanthropist, visionary who affected many other fields, king of pop,
Artist of decade, generation, century, millennium, the most selling single artist of all time, maker of the most selling album of all time, the first and only artist to have a top 40 song during the 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, and 2010s in the Billboard 100,
Mentioned many times in Guinness World Records, in 2006 named as the most successful entertainer of all time and the most famous living human being, owner of more than 500 awards in artistic and humanitarian fields - which is more than anybody else has, inducted into Halls of Fame, owner of Hollywood Walk of Fame Star, humanitarian, warrior for children's rights, voice for the voiceless children, holder of Honorary doctorates, devoted father of three wonderful children, lastly, an amazing human being.

Michael Jackson - the King of Pop. The King of Music, too, in my opinion. He had the courage to speak out through his music, and I admire that greatly. Songs like "Man in the Mirror", "They Don't Care About Us", "Black or White", "Heal the World", "We are the World", and countless others had a powerful meaning hidden behind the excellent performance and amazing song. Sure, he may have made some mistakes in his time, but he loved the world for what it was. It takes a very great man to do that. Maybe I'm young and shouldn't understand these things, but he didn't see the shame in being unique. He loved so much it didn't matter what he saw, but what he felt in his heart. I admire him so much.

He is like immortal in the hearts of every single person on this earth.MJ loved by all people of different generations.old child young all know about MJ or other form of his popularity.
He is irreplaceable and will forever greatest personality ever

For most of my life, I had never given a second thought to Michael Jackson. One day, however, I found myself sat in my bed watching Michael Jackson's Thriller music video- I instantly became hooked; I ended up watching all of Michael's music videos during that night and then went on to watching his first interview with Oprah
Winfrey. Now I am not a super fan of Michael Jackson, I do not live and breath michael jackson, I find him incredible because he had amazing talents which were recognised by the whole world, and he still stayed humble. He was so majestic as well man.

12 Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci, more commonly Leonardo da Vinci or simply Leonardo, was an Italian polymath whose areas of interest included invention, painting, sculpting, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, writing, history, poetry, ...read more.

Leonardo da Vinci is the greatest polymath genius the world has ever produced. "Greatest" doesn't mean most influential so I have not in included the likes of Jesus Christ who are largely fictitious or a matter of faith. Leonardo is a one off who besides being arguably the greatest painter who ever lived, was interested in and excelled at literally almost everything, from science, art, sports, entertaining, healthy diet, engineering, music, philosophy, economics,... the list goes on, and we will probably never see his like again.

Wow! You don't know you're history. Jesus fictitious! Lol. And not only is Jesus influential, he is also intensely loving, no denying that. And also, it's not a matter of faith, it's a matter of truth.

One of the greatest thinkers of our time and perhaps the most versatile in its talents form as an artist, sculpture, painter, philosopher, studying anatomy and designing future machines in the 16th century which later cane to fruition.

Are you kidding me, placing religious and probably imaginary figures over brightest minds of all time? , we owe people like the Vinci so much. Modern technology, quality of life increase etc. While religion was opposed to science and equality. If god existed, he would have been disappointed about the amount of dumb people he/she had created.

One of the greatest minds this planet has ever seen. Mathematics, technology, art... There was nothing this man could not become an expert in. No one else is considered synonymous with the renaissance and the birth of modern science and culture than the Vinci!

13 Ashoka

He was the emperor who won entire India and also spread the philosophy of Buddha in entire Asia/world

He was the great king ever born in India. It was very difficult for any other king or emporer to defeat him. He won many kingdoms and become the mightiest king. But after the world of Kalinga when he SAM humorous dead. Bodies lying motionless on the battlefield he was deeply moved. He penetrated for the bloodshed he caused and realized that it is not the thing he wants to win in his life, and he was greatly influenced by the principles af lord Buddha and started from that very moment preaching the thoughts of peace, non violence, fraternity, love and pity. He was the great follower of Buddhist principles and dedicated rest of his life preaching the message of Buddhism to entire world. He gave his daughter and son for the sake of preaching and speeding Buddhism all over the world.

He represents all other power hungry kings and emperors and Politicians. He was one of them. But after the Kalinga war he introspected he contemplated and transformed and evolved into a better Human Being who later on took care of his people like his own children. He embraced Buddhism and preached non-violence and universal brotherhood . His contribution of the Ashoka Chakra to Indian flag and his symbol of 4 lions is great but I think is positive transformation is an example for even todays politicians.

Ashoka was exemplary king In the rock edicts, Ashoka allowed religious freedom and tolerance, he instructs officials to help the poor and the elderly, establishes medical facilities for humans and animals, commands obedience to parents, respect for elders, generosity for all priests and ascetic orders no matter their creed, orders fruit and shade trees to be planted and also wells to be dug along the roads so travellers can benefit from them

Tesla developed and used ...read more.

A humble man who chose to remain this way. This human being died poor despite being potentially the smartedt man alive. A true BORN genius. He is the closest thing humanity has seen (so far) to the "superbrain". He was willing to share his ideas without the need to be credited or a desire to profit from. We've witnessed what's possible when the two hemispheres of the brain seemed to be in sync and working together in harmony. His inventions were created by merging his mathematical genius with his imagination and spiritual abilities. He gave us powerfully incredible (OR) potentially dangrous CODES. Think 'The Matrix' was just a Sci-fi movie? Maybe not..

This legend discovered A.C (Alternatinge Current), which powers the entire universe, an incredible revolutionary thinker he built the future, his views on women then are still true today. People cannot be even remotely close to the levels of intelligence he has achieved. This man possessed a God like mind, I truly think he is the greatest human to ever have lived for dedicating his mind to the future of science and detaching him out of wordly possesions. A close second only to Jesus or Buddha and inferior to none.His levels of logic and rational thinking are a true testiment to the fact all humans are created by God.

Practically created the alternating current system we have today and many other great devices such as the radio and wireless electricity.

Come on, who has so much ignorance and put Bill Gates and many others over Nikola Tesla! That is insane! Nikola Tesla must be in top 10! He has invented the radio (yes, Nikola Tesla, not Guglielmo Marconi! ), alternating current, wireless current transmission if the wealthy people where not the same as they are now, we would have long time ago free energy! FREE ENERGY! The idea of electric cars = Nikola Tesla! Please, research a little more about him, there are lot of things to learn about him, and all the stuff what he has done. And he has done LOOT of them! LOT! I can not emphasis that enough!

15 B. R. Ambedkar Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar (14 April 1891 – 6 December 1956), popularly known as Babasaheb or B. R. Ambedkar, was an Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Dalit Buddhist movement and campaigned against social discrimination towards Untouchables (Dalits), while also ...read more.

Such a great person in the world he created the Indian constitution and gave the people equality and freedom. B.R. ambedkar is called BHARAT RATNA and VISHWA RATNA

He is the man who only think about Indian future and give equal rights to all Indians for making modern India

He wrote the world's best constitution that holds the most diverse cultures together.

He wrote the worlds very best constitution that holds the most diverse cultures all together.

He was the Greatest person in India, should be in the world

He was the leader of humanity, equality, freedom, brotherhood & justice. He is the next Buddha.

Anyone can rise if he has a will, but able to make yourself rise as a child that too when everything is conspiring against you, is probably needs a great determination.

His caste, financial status, reproached as untouchable, made to sit alone & denied water in school, not allowed to learn Sanskrit, thrown in the drainage, managed to get a scholarship from one of the king. couldn't get a home to stay, sacrificed his own children's well-being for the uplift of untouchables.

He used to studied whole night undisturbed. He knew 17 languages. Read the whole world's literature. Even the 2nd highest knowledgeable person would be just half of him.

People who had read about him, can bet that none in future would be of his stature.

The sovereignty of scriptures of all religions must come to an end if we want to have a united integrated modern India.

16 Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II served as the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt ...read more.

First black president that changed the views of Not just America but around the world how to live and work as one world global community. The most articulate president ever to come from USA soil and caring for all as one.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but don't lie and say you voted for him. Of the eighteen people who approved the comment "voting for him was the worst mistake I ever made" I will bet at least 15 of you voted for Romney or didn't vote at all. If you're saying you regret voting for Obama, you're saying that Romney would have been better. Romney was a terrible candidate and would've been a much worse president. His own party realized this, and asked him to stay out of the race in 2016. With the racial hatred he's had to put up with, not to mention a hostile media and Congress, it's amazing he's got as much done as he has.

Part of the problem during all of Obama's presidency has been the lazy media in the U.S. there have gotten to be two sets of facts: the real facts and the Fox News, or conservative, twist on the facts. For example, There is still a size able portion of America that believes Obama was born in Kenya, even though he has produced a rock solid birth certificate from Hawaii. Meanwhile Ted Cruz, who WAS born in Canada, is allowed to run with no questions asked. Also, Donald Trump is saying the new Iran nuclear arms deal means Iran will get nuclear weapons, when the exact opposite is true. Republicans are referring to this as "Obama's deal" and our lazy media is going right along with them, even though there are six other countries involved. The media never mentions that England, France, Germany, Russia, China, and India are also on board to enforce this deal, as if having allies doesn't matter. There are the facts, and there are the Fox News facts, and the lame stream media treats them with ...more

You completely forgot about how Republicans have to deal with CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC and so on. All the Democrats have to deal with is FOX.

Don't call me racist but Obama is the biggest mockery of a US president in history. First of all, his health care bill hurt more than it helped, pushed our Asian allies away, negotiated trade deals that hurt us. He let other countries take advantage stage of us. The idiots on CNN, ABC, NBC and CBS are just a bunch of dummies who think Obama was the best because he was nice. He might be nice on the outside, but on the inside, he is a typical greedy liberal who is an attention hugger, especially at John McCain's funeral where he went on about himself and can't control this country. He is not the worst person ever, but definitely not a good one or a good one either. That is just my opinion. Call me racist all you want, you people know I am right.

17 Karl Marx Karl Marx was a German philosopher, economist, historian, political theorist, sociologist, journalist and revolutionary socialist. Born in Trier to a middle-class family, Marx studied law and Hegelian philosophy.

A great thinker, philosopher, a communist who wanted nothing more than to improve the lives of workers and the downtrodden. He may have invented the concept of Unions.

Karl Marx was more than just the creator of Communism, but a political philosopher, sociologist and scholar. Maybe in a Victorian manner, some finer details were looked over in his work, but ultimately he was an agent of change in the world, striving for equality and an end to monarchism and religious dogma and oppression. Not what I would call the greatest man in the world, but he is certainly the greatest on this list.

And by destroying the oppressive establishment of the time he helped usher in a new generation of of oppression death and destruction with dictators such as Josef Stalin and Vladimir linen and the Soviet union and peoples republic of China

Karl Marx invented socialism! He was one of the greatest philosopher of all time, maybe as great as Jesus! We can agree or disagree with his ideology, but we have to mind that he was one of the most influencial people in the history of humanity! He changed the world forever, his influence is visible even nowadays!

This is comment on the Reply.

Karl Marx actually existed. God and Jesus never did, they are a fabric of imagination. And people who do not have common sense to figure out the difference between Fiction and reality can not from sound opinions about anything! That is just my opinion

He is one of the finest brains born on earth and devoted is intelligence to the emancipation of mankind, unlike others, who exploit human beings. Once again, one day, people will realise that only his philosophy will help humankind and stop exploitation of man by man.

18 Mother Teresa Mother Teresa also known as Blessed Teresa of Calcutta was a Roman Catholic religious sister and missionary. She was born on August 26th, 1910 and died September 5, 1997 On September 5th, 2016, Pope Francis Canonized Mother Teresa, making her St. Teresa of Calcutta.

She is a great lady who is very kind towards poor. She serves the society as it is her family. We should learn more from her. She is my inspiration always. She believed that service to poor is service to god. Thus she became the mother of country because of her love, care and kindness towards the people.

She was amazing. Mother Teresa helped the poorest of the poor in India. She even got a Nobel Peace Prize and was made a saint by the Catholic Church in 2016.

She was an excellent embezzler for the church who cared more about converting people than she did for their lives. She pushed church propaganda while forcing religion on the poor and sick who she watched die without allowing them any form of medicine not even pain medication, she raised mounds of money to assist the poor which she used travel and even for her own health care while letting the people in her care suffer as they slowly died while having Christians try to brainwash them with the Christian faith. Inhumane yes, but not a hypocrite because she even admitted she only cared about converting people and not about helping them.

An angel and apostle of peace on earth. Duty, sacrifie, love and compassion define Mother Teresa.A saint was mother to entire mankind.

19 Jyotirao Phule Jyotirao Govindrao Phule was an Indian activist, thinker, social reformer and writer from Maharashtra.

He and his wife did a commendable job that no common could do. Started girl education in India in a difficult period. Great person

Jyotirao phule is the real mahatma as his sacrifice for the society. He has done such tremendous and very very difficult work in odd situations. Today whatever we sees development in education in all ranks is only possible due to jyotirao phule.

India."
Swami Vivekananda was a Hindu monk from India. He played significant role in the growing Indian nationalism of the 19th and 20th century, reinterpreting and harmonising certain aspects of Hinduism. His teachings and philosophy applied this reinterpretation to various aspects of education, faith, character building as well as social issues pertaining to India, and was also instrumental in introducing Yoga to the west.

According to Vivekananda a country's future depends on its people, stating that "man-making is my mission."

"Arise! Awake! And Stop not till the goal is reached". The man who is the real hero of India.

Best for this discipline over women.

Discipline over women makes him great? Maybe that's why he is not at the top of the list - no female votes?

21 Mary, Mother of Jesus

She is the most merciful woman ever, mother of all humanity . Greatest woman ever lived and she still lives . I love you so much mother.

He is alive, and Allah had given multiple miracles, ill mention some of his Miracles, as he use to make Dead alive, gave vision to the Blind to see, removed the hunch of the hunch back, Legs to the Lame.
He taught the people to follow the path of Allah. He said he was sent by Allah to preach the people to live in harmony instead of barbarians.

Hail Mary full of Grace the Lord is with you, blessed are you amongst women and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

She was the most pure woman, and so she lived pure, gave birth pure, and died pure. God chose her as the mother of Jesus because of her piety, religiosity, and purity. God bless her.

22 Guru Gobind Singh Guru Gobind Singh; born Gobind Rai, was the 10th Sikh Guru, a spiritual master, warrior, poet and philosopher.

He is the greatest Guru and King that Humanity can have. He sacrificed his own Sons for the sake of humanity. He is the saviour of religion against evil practices, injustice and is only personality in the world to achieve such feats within a very short span of life. He instilled great power in common men and women who further fought against the injustice existing in the society and helped the poor and down-trodden to lead life without fear. He is the greatest of all!

The Last of the Sikh Gurus in Human form, who changed the destiny of India, from being subservient to the tyrannical Islamic rulers and gave the ordinary citizen the will to stand and fight for their rights and demand and obtain self rule. Sadly that time has come again for the public to unite together and get rid of the corrupt governments and the police States on this earth, who have established themselves under guise of democracy and the apathy of the masses. They "you will get the management you deserve". How true it seems right now. Just look around at the world today and see the injustices in nations, in religion, in families, in law, how the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
May we learn from the Covid-19 and all unite and stand together to ensure the survival of humankind and of our earth.

An individual who proved it to the world what is the meaning of love for humanity by sacrificing 52 members of his family including his 4 sons and parents to save another religion.
His moral rectitude was so exemplary that when he was questioned as to why did he entice Gul Khan to stab him he said that he didn't want history to imply that he was not a martyr because innumerable men, women, children and relatives had sacrificed their lives in the battlefield on his words.
A poet, a messenger of God, a social reformer and worker, a soldier, a saint, a martyr and above all the man who knew past, present and future whose age was only 42.
Inexplicably gargantuan personality.

Great, companionate, fair, inclusive, brave, ruler of great significance for the rights and freedoms of personal choice, promoted equality of women. Amazing, charismatic, genuine personality. Created a race of fearless warriors to protect the downtrodden. Advocated for compassion. Said it is cowardly to stand by and watch injustice or crime taking place. He who watches and does not stand up
for the poor, powerless people is himself a coward. Promoted nature and respect for all. Greatest leader with a vision for the future. Fear no one, believe in yourself. As a woman I admire a man of courage, respect and equality of all human beings regardless of gender, caste, color or Creed as he promoted.

The first high-school dropout to be able to invent colored computers and run a major corporation without the slightest sweat.

I don't see how people dislike these comments, Michael Jackson shouldn't be above him. This man was a computer and technology genius, sure he had a bad rep with his temper but he was very serious about his work and didn't let others tell him his visions were impossible, he was not afraid to say what he thought and put his visions to work. He should always be remembered as one of
The greatest men who ever lived.

25 Guru Nanak Guru Nanak was the founder of Sikhism and the first of the ten Sikh Gurus. His birth is celebrated worldwide as Guru Nanak Gurpurab on Kartik Pooranmashi, the full-moon day in the month of Katak, October–November.

Guru Nanak's religion is very simple. See GOD IN EVERYONE. ALL ARE GOD CREATION WHO created Different religions and colors and animal and plant life. If all religions belief that nothing happens without God instructions and not even a leaf moves without his instructions then how can people on earth can claim that their religion is the only one for all mankind. God wants all type of religions and if he did not want different religions he could stop it as we all claim that God is all powerful. So he don't need mankind to force or entice humans to change their religions. Esp God don't want people to go around killing people in the name of religion because he is the creator and all belongs to him alone. Then who are we to change his creation. Are we and our thinking greater than GODS. Is God at fault for allowing all type of religions. God is one for all. No religion has monopoly on God. So live and let live. God told mankind to pray to him to thank him for all he has done for us to save ...more

He is the first guru of Sikhs. He has always taught that God is One. Many incidents of His life have proved that he was an Incarnation of God

GURU NANAK was the founder of Sikhism religion in which he insisted the equality of woman and man. though so many religions talk about equality of woman and man but in practical life they do not follow the same. In Islamic countries woman is not treated equally.

The greatest departure Guru Nanak made was to prescribe for the religious man the responsibility of confronting evil and oppression. It was he who said that God destroys 'the evil doers' and 'the demonical; and that such being God s nature and will, it is man's goal to carry out that will. Since there are evil doers in life, it is the spiritual duty of the seeker and his society to resist evil and injustice. Again, it is Guru Nanak who protests and complains that Babur had been committing tyranny against the weak and the innocent. Having laid the principle and the doctrine, it was again he who proceeded to organise a society. because political and societal oppression cannot be resisted by individuals, the same can be confronted only by a committed society. It was, therefore, he who proceeded to create a society and appointed a successor with the clear instructions to develop his Panth. Again, it was Guru Nanak who emphasized that life is a game of love, and once on that path one ...more
