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...

This man, whether you believe him divine or not, was without a doubt the most legendary man of all time.

Well, I'm not going to say he's the most legendary man of all time if I don't believe in him am I

I'm atheist, but still, dying for your people is pretty awesome in my book.

Friend, if you're an atheist then you believe that Jesus was killed by the roman government because he was a potential revolutionary, not for his people. Atheists believe that his death was not voluntary and it in no way protected or served his followers in any way besides give them a martyr.

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. - TheHabsFan

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.

Without einstein, the world never know about space

Actually, I'm fairly certain that we knew of space in the time of Archimedes. Not as much as we do now, but still pretty well. - BonJovi17

Great man...
He truly did something for the world with his intelligence.
"Wit beyond measure, is a man's greatest treasure"

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 is the best. I read his speech I have A Dream. SO good and peaceful.

Very good man. I really wish he hadn't gotten assassinated. Anyone who is against racism is awesome.

He should be much higher on the list. Like maybe no. 2 I agree that Jesus Christ should be number 1.

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

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.

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.

Firstly I would correct the statement " man of century". He is the "man of the millennium". His life is a role model for everyone. We often mix " how to act" with the ideals and bring down the value of ideals but he pulled up "how to act" to the standards of ideals and then made a homogenous solution of it.

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.

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! - TheHabsFan

The Greatest Human

Um...I'm a Christian and don't want to have a religious debate or anything, but isn't Buddha your equivalent to God, thus immortal? I just want to understand. - HaiThere

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.

He freed the slaves. Its one thing to fight for your self but to fight for others till your death is something greater.

Abraham Lincoln is a racist who hated black people. The reason he freed the slaves is because it was no longer profitable to America. That is what they do not tell you in the history books in school - JESUSISKING

The greatest humanitarian and selfless human being who happened to be President of the USA.

He is the one who has committed and has shown to, and has convinced the whole world that all men and women are created equal before God and have the same rights to live in this world which is created by the same God.

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.

8 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.

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.

For me he suppose to be on top 10 list beacause of what he did for other the nations

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.

9 Moses

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

Amen

Moses peace be upon him

Prophet moses with one wooden stick use to create ripple in the enemies heart

Best and greatest person of all time by far. He was full of treasure and miracles!

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.

Gravity , every action has an equal and opposite reaction. we would all be dumb without him.

I'm pretty sure we could've figured it out with him, he just happened to get to it first. But he did find it first, so that counts for something, I'll give that to him.

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!

It is a disgrace to Sir Isaac Newton, not to give him the top position in this list. He is, in all sense, the greatest man ever to walk the Earth. Without him, we wouldn't even have had automobiles, let alone satellites, internet and other facilities of the 'modern world'. He made this 'modern world'.

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.

11 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.

If you put gods on top you gotta put science after and leo went toe toe with the church and won he is hero to alotta scienctist
And inventors he loved science and constantly tried to improve the world with it

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. - TheHabsFan

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.

Genius, artistically talented, contributor to a much divinely inspired level of both invention and art

12 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.

No one will ever be as great as he was. He had a very unique style with his abstract dance style and he will never be replaced.

I never really thought much of Michael Jackson, and I think the statement is blasphemous, but at the same time, I understand what you mean. He had some...quirks, but his songs are pretty cool, as is the moonwalk. - BonJovi17

Because of the timing of when he walked the Earth and the media coverage compounded by his talent and uniqueness it brewed a perfect storm of the Most Famous and Influential man that ever walked the face of the Earth excluding prophets, though some may argue with songs like "man in the mirror" "heal the world" "we are the world" he could be considered a modern day prophet himself.

He creted the platform for modern day music, dance and idolism-which EVERY artist and entertainer now aspires to have. He did this well before he was 30 years old!

There was nothing great about Michael Jackson. He was a pedophile.

13 Ashoka

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

Ashoka become great when he left the path of war and choose peace after adopting Buddhism. He remarkably worked for the betterment of people.

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.

14 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 wold

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.

He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt ...read more.

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

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.

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.

Ability to live Martin Luther's dream. By being what he is, he gave a new and important message/role model to the world.

Tesla developed and used ...read more.

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

A man I view as a true Genius A man who thought so far and moved so far in such a short time it's hard to ignore his achievements. He created the system of Power we use to this day and created inventions far ahead of his time. He Had dreams of Improving the world Profits be damned. Of course his plans for world improvement for all made investors leave making his visions of free energy for all people to be forgotten. The World Is truly duller with his loss.

A genius who could've lit the whole world with a warm light, if not for the American greed personified, Thomas Edison.

The world as we know today, wold not be the same without his legacy.

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.

Absolute mad lad
Revolutionised materialist philosophy
Began ideological base for the liberation of mankind

Absolute unit this madlad wrote
a book that inspired revolutions.

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

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 a remarkable woman.

We are hundred percent sure about her existence. Although Jesus Christ made a lot of hero- like accomplishment, he still might be legendary

She is a great lady who saw God in downtrodden and fatally ill fellow human beings and she treated them without hesitation. She was the symbol of love, care and affection. Selfless and totally committed Angel on the earth.

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.

His great work for Unity,founder of Farmers requirements,Shivaji Maharaj history, fight against untouchability, education for women's.

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!

He is the one who stood and fought for righteousness and the eternal truth that all humans are creation of one GOD and so all are equal.

This is for one who added him in this list. He was sent by God to this earth to defeat evil and teach people the right path to salvation.
You cannot consider him a person.
He is something more than a person.
So, please, respect him, if you don't know much about him, I suggest you to gain some knowledge first.

24 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

27 Charles Darwin Charles Robert Darwin was an English naturalist and geologist, best known for his contributions to evolutionary theory.

Single best idea anybody ever had, in terms of both the explanatory power of the idea and being revolutionary in and of itself, is evolution by natural selection. The reason it stands tall in front of some of the greatest ideas in Physics is that people had no problem in deconstructing lifeless matter, but life was given a special status. Darwin unified matter and life.

The idea of life forms evolving had been around before Darwin, but he together with Wallace gave a coherent mechanism for evolution by means of natural selection. Darwin went on to put forth his second idea of evolution by sexual selection which also has tremendous explanatory power to explain animal behavior.

He predicted the birth of new scientific disciplines, being aware of the limitations of the disciplines at the time. Last chapters of "Origin" are a telling testament on how clearly he saw what was known and what ought to be known for pieces of his proposed mechanism to come together. As a ...more

Brought the meaning of evolution to the forefront to challenge the doctrines of the religion of its time. And now considered his theory to be work if a genius.

Recognised evolution, something that had enormous consequence for how we philosophically see our place in the universe.

He build on the work of other biologists to formulate the theory of evolution

29 Hazrat Ali

Hazrat Ali (A.S. ) was a multi talented personality. He could wield a sword as effortlessly as a pen. In prayer he used to tremble in presence of God and in battlefield he was a fearless lion. No one could match him in eloquence. In charity he was foremost. As a ruler he used to reach to the weakest of the weak and as a judge he used to punish the most powerful wrongdoer. When he was dying from the wound of his assassin he noticed the hand of the assassin was tied tightly and he was hurt. He asked his son to loosen the ropes. Where can you find such a noble forgiving soul. Next to prophet Muhammad (saws) he is the greatest human who ever lived.

The person who was the example of how a Muhammad's follower should be. His wisdom has no parallel.

Hazrat Ali is known by his justice between poor & rich he never differentiate between them when he was ruling he never take advantage if it he use eat dry bread & use to sit on jute carpet he was away from luxury of life due to his justice he suppose to be in top five

Even as a ruler he never used a single penny of the state for himself so that if he would have a personal guest he switched off the lamp of the state and would light his own lamp as he entertained him... His reign as a caliph was that of peace and justice... In the nights he would himself lift loaves of bread on his back that in the darkness of night he would provide to the hungry and the needy... So that in his lifetime nobody slept hungry in the city but he did it so secretly that nobody ever knew who their helper was it was only when he was assassinatedthat people realised it was him... Despite being such a great personality he was so humble that when he came across any ill or miserable helpless person he would personally care for him and would personally visit orphan children and give them gifts and would be kind to them... His entire life is an example like that of his cousin brother the holy prophet Muhammed pbuh and other masoomeen AS that the essence of Islam as well as once ...more

He's also at number 93

Greatest Sports Person Ever. Greatest Humanitarian, Eh.

Threatened to dismantle the CIA and the Federal Reserve.. was assassinated a week later.

Had some very good ideas, but died before he could actually do much. Overrated.

He was one of our best presidents he should be a lot closer to number one

He was a good person, but he didn't make a good president. The reason he is so famous, is because of the era he served as president and his assassination.

38 George Washington George Washington was the first President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

It is outrageous and unjust that this great human being is subject to the whims of modern revisionist thinking.

I believe this statement to be absolutely true and more. He could have been Emperor. At the head of the army at the end of the war. Grabbing power as almost all had in that same position. Again and most importantly he stepped down from presidency at the end of his terms. setting the example that all have since followed. The stability and legitimacy that example gave to the office of president set the standard till today.

No government of the people, by the people, or for the people would have been possible without him. He could have opted for greater glory instead of resigning his command and returning to his farmm as just another citizen. Would any person have acted in that manner? There was no historical precedent for such an act. This was a seminal moment for the planet.

He didn't create the greatest country ever not that the U.S. Is not the greatest country ever but that he was only one of many founders

39 Umar

Without his wisdom and leadership we would not have the so called modern day comforts such as the security for the public in the form of the justice system...

This man is a man against the world. So many people oppose his ideologies purely because they're HIS. I don't make the case as well as others, but he's kept more promises than he made, if that makes any sense. He also got several things that Obama wanted to do in his presidency, or promised when he campaigned. (The wall is under construction, the American embassy in Israel was moved to Jerusalem, and so on.)

Despite having a perfect life upon his golden throne that he built in his business, Donald Trump felt a calling to politics after seeing the corruption of previous administrations. Everybody loved Donald Trump for his charity, his entertaining personality, until he decided to do something about the country he loved. Now you see how this once great image of Donald Trump has been attacked by everyone from the mainstream media, to former employees looking for 5 minutes of fame, and despite all of this Trump managed to win the presidency of the United States in a stunning feat of political genius. Despite what you think of his politics, you must admire how a man who has a perfect life and a steady future decided to take it upon himself to do something which he feels will better his country, and continue with his positions despite being called everything from a racist to a child rapist.

He should be higher than Obama, not being a retarded idiot who has no idea who he is. Obama did nothing, Donald did. Switch his and Obama's spots.

he should get respect because he is our president but he should also give respect on the USA because they are all united but he just leaves it and Mexicans should come because he is racist and we are people with love and respect to all even those who aren’t part of the US

41 Socrates Socrates was a classical Greek philosopher credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy, and as being the first moral philosopher, of the Western ethical tradition of thought.

He should be higher people come now you put Michael Jackson higher than him

He is the greatest philosopher of all time. Even when his unfair death was coming as a command from the court of iliea and he could get out of the prison he stayed suporting his life-opinion that everyone must do what the rules say even if that is unfair.

Purest thinker that was ever lived. His death, amongst the first examples in history of the good being killed by those who were afraid of his greatness.

The best philosopher of all time. In my opinio it's unfair for him to be in this place. Greece always had people with very good mind.

42 Fatima

43 Walt Disney Walter Elias "Walt" Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons.

Brought the entertainment to its feet and brought families ever so close with his fabulous memorable characters to life and giving generation after generation of kids hope and love.

Brought the pinnacle of entertainment for children and adults alike

"an adult with the spirit of a boy"

Lots of Disney fans forget him. It's so sad, plus he would hate modern Disney movies like "Frozen" and the live-action remakes. He was basically the creator of cartoons. He died too young.

44 John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

Should be higher because of his singing - songwriting, a true musical talents but not only musical talents, but also his peaceful activities. I'm sure God will love him for making peace. He is a children of God. Go John Lennon.

John Lennon is my favorite artist! I love him

John Lennon was clearly one of the most innovative, creative, clever, poignant, cutting edge pioneers in our music industry. We can credit him with lyrics that are equal to the writings of our greatest authors and poets. His music was lush and melodic and driving. He was probably one of the very first to combine being a musician with being a political activist and one of the greatest and influential promoters of peace. John Lennon should easily top this list.

Should Be No. 1 Easy! This man is bigger than Jesus, Who should be at johns current spot, 92 for being a brainwashing dweeb

45 Babe Ruth George Herman Ruth Jr., better known as Babe Ruth, was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935.

He was arguably the best baseball player ever, certainly the most famous.

Bad ass player ever!

46 Thomas Edison Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor.

The man who never give up

The inventor of the lightbulb, this might not seem impressive compared to other inventors, but he tried 70 000 times to invent it. That's inspirational.

No, he didn't invent the lightbulb. BUT, he did perfect it and make it marketable. Not to mention the 1,000+ other innovations.
Innovations, not inventions. Being the businessman he was, I don't think his credit should go towards being a great inventor. But where credit is due is towards his ability to make profits off his ideas.

He didn't failed in his 1000 inventions. But he invented 100 things that don't work

47 Stanislav Petrov

Fantastic that people here know of Col Petrov! One of the most unsung heroes of the 20th century, literally saved the world.

We are here because of him

He personally prevented nuclear war.

49 Confucius Confucius was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher of the Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history. He is the founder of the religion with the same name as him. Confucius believed he was doing the Will of Ti'en (God or 'Heaven') by preaching ethics.

Confucius and Lao tzu are the greatest saints in Chinese history, their thought influenced the whole China, Asia, and even the world for thousands years. Perhaps because of the thinking of Confucius is engaging in politics, the thinking of Lao tzu is away from politics, Confucius more famous than Lao tzu.
Confucius teach Chinese the social Dharma, the relationship between monarch and subject, parents and son, master and student, husband and wife, etc. Abide by the Dharma, the society is a stable and harmonious society, otherwise, it will be a chaotic society. He teach Chinese people what is benevolent, loyalty, formality, wisdom and integrity, Chinse called ren-yi-li-zhi-xin. The later dynasty, because of respecting the thoughts of Confucius, became prosperity and powerful, that is The han dynasty in China, and his thinking is exalted for thousands of years. At chinse he is the the greatest saint in China.
All the prophet Mohammed, Jesus Christ, Buddha, Confucius, etc. are ...more

Also tremendously influential, if anything should be in the Top 10. One of the very few figures in history who's fundamentally shaped the culture of not only a country, but of an entire continent and region.
