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). 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

God is the ruler of this world!
He is the reason we all are down on this earth! He created the land, Animals, plants, Landscapes , Love, Life, Joy, Happiness, Hope, Faith, He created... YOU and he loves us all no matter are race, Skin color, Etc, WE are all his children of god!

2 Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King Jr. (born Michael King Jr.; January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an African American minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968. King is best known for advancing civil rights through more.

Dude remove this guy from this list. His important in history is very insignificant compared to the rest of the list. I, as-well as the rest of the world, am tired of African-Americans being put on a pedestal hoping that helps change the community. It's biological and Blacks are less intelligent. Let's face it, we can cut ourselves down to nothing and continue to embrace this culture and feed them education, money and undeserved respect. But it's hopeless. Show me the receipts! Show me the actual worthy contributions these people have brought to the world and let's go from there. I'm sick of honesty being racist.

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...

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

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.

3 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.

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.

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

The greatest man who succeed to gather people on the good things for themselves and community and do our emission in the right way for satisfaction of god. He give up wealth and he reject to be a king and he accept to be a simple person, worshiping salve. His behaviour is a model and example to human kind which if we follow non gonna be poor and non gonna be sad. His solution for the economic problems it's the solutions for every time, and no doubt if the world apply it today they gonna resolve all these issues in a short amount of time. The constitution and human rights, law... That he bring us. You can find the most of it in human rights NU the basic of it it comes from islam, if you have doubt on that all what you can do is go to human rights in islam and read it gonna seems for you like if you read what they put in Vienna, for us muslim we don't we don't talk for nothing. You don't believe it all what you can do is look for it. Thanks god now its easy to get the informations ...more

He is the last prophet god has sent to us and he is the most kind person..
Read his stories.. Read about what had he done for us.. And you will not find a greater person than prophet mohammed.. He learned us honesty.. He learned us not to kill the weak.. He learned us to show our best.. He learned us to do our work with our best.. And he give us warnings about what is going to destroy us... And he encouraged us to unite and live together in peace and happiness.. And my favorite story for prophet mohammed
That once a day the neighbor of prophet mohammed was a Jewish.. And he was against prophet mohammed.. And was throwing dirts and garbage in front of the house of prophet mohammed.. And that Jewish became ill.. Prophet mohammed gone to visit him and prayed for him to recover.. The jewish asked our prophet :-why do you wish me to recover and you come to visit me after I was throwing dirts on front of your house.. He told him :- that is islam is to forgive and be a better human ...more

4 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.

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.

At least he was real. This list is full of useless religion stuf. Seriously, how can a non existing or ancient person be the greatest. There are enough great people alive today. Yet a lot of you choose to blindly follow a fake being just because a dusty old book tells you so. I can't wait for the time the world will get rid of this parasite called religion.

5 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 in its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. Abraham Lincoln was born in Feb. 12, 1809, in Hardin County, Kentucky. more.

He's mediocre for me because he invented income tax, started the civil war (which was unconstitutional), and was a racist slave owning bastard.

Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and MLK all freed blacks from torcher. Thomas Jefferson by letting 3 slaves free. Abraham Lincoln for leading the Civil war for blacks to be free. MLK for the speech "I have a dream". All kind things. They deserve it.

He freed the slaves. It's one thing to fight for yourself but to fight for others till your death is something greater.

I don't think I said enough in my last comment. I mean he is arguably the only human who can compare with prophets. He did the same as Moses (he freed the slaves) but he wasn't given powers by God like Moses was. He was just quite simply a man who disagreed with suffering and wanted to stop it - Unnamed Google User Remade

6 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.

A literal god on earth. Mahatma Gandhi was a man of great character. He always favoured the truth and honesty, he condemned violence, kept himself away from the materialistic desires and walked a path of high moral. He was a celebrity who was recognised worldwide and yet remaining unaffected from the limelight he lived a life of an ascetic. and in the movie Ben Kingsley is sooo iconic

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.

Mahatma Gandhi was a truly ascetic man who gave up everything he had and even sacrificed his family life for his ideals. He fought injustice not just for his countrymen, but for all oppressed people of the world.

Nevertheless his fight for justice did not include harming the oppressors. He took the essence of every religion (not just Hinduism) and came up with the lofty weapons of 'Satyagraha' and 'Ahimsa', with which to bring around a mighty empire to reason.

The simple and straightforward common folk of India recognized this great man as the "Mahatma" and rallied around him to form the Nation that is today's India. He truly is the Father of the Indian Nation.

7 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.
We are blessed to have one such person and his given religion known to us.

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.

He is the only, who has explained the humanity to its deepest that is too at about 2500 years ago, when all over the world everybody was dumb and brought only fake theory and sayings, which are still disputed and far away from reality. Buddha's saying and theories are as pure and real as it were 2500 years ago. All the peoples in this real world, who are intelligent, educated, free from prejudice, take only right decision after self consideration, follows buddha even though they may be attached to other religion by birth. Buddha is one and only, who is beyond a human thought.

8 Moses Moses is a prophet in Abrahamic religions. He is the Lawgiver of Judaism. God sent him to the Pharaoh in Egypt to tell him to release the children of Israel from bondage. When the Pharaoh disobeyed God, God sent 10 plagues. Finally, Pharaoh relented, and Moses led the children out of Israel (through more.

Moses was friends with Jesus. He should be at least #2. Are you saying that Martin Luther King is more important than Moses? He is the most important prophet in Judaism, and an important prophet in Christianity. He lived to be 120 years old. Can anyone now bet that?

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.

Should be #1 based on principles of equality among men and women,
Equality of all races, color and creed.
Love for humanity.
Believe in honest living, share your earnings with community and constant rememberance of God.

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.

One of the bravest men who ever lived, being able to stand up against an unjust government, surviving all the struggles that came his way.

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.

He is the Jesus Christ of our time, South Africa is a one of the Greatest place to live in Because of of the sacrifice he made with his Life. He is the father of our rainbow nation. He is my living Icon. As I am writing this comment about him its his birthday but he has been in Hospital for the past 30 Days. I wish God can give him strength to wake up and come back to his beloved people of South Africa we not ready to let go of him not now. We love you Tata!

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.

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.

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!

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'.

Sir Isaac Newton was a great man who made revolutionary discoveries. Too many people on here are from religions, and it's very biased. I'm sure I'll get hate but we do not know for sure that Jesus, Muhammad, or Buddha existed so we should vote for people who we do know existed.

The Newcomers

? Thomas Sowell
? George H. W. Bush George Herbert Walker Bush (June 12, 1924 - November 30, 2018) was an American politician who served as the 41st President of the United States from 1989 to 1993. Prior to assuming the presidency, Bush served as the 43rd Vice President of the United States under Ronald Reagan from 1981 to 1989.
The Contenders
11 Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (April 15, 1452 - May 2, 1519) 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, 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.

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.

He was great at everything that he chose to do. A true example to others in many topics.

Also on another note, why are there so many Indians on this list? No offense (I'm a quarter Indian myself) it's just improbable that everyone great was Indian. I think that a lot of Indians probably went on this list. Don't get me wrong though, those people are still great

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!

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 more.

Michael Jackson was not one of the best people ever. After several months of research, I came to the conclusion that he was not a child abuser, but that doesn't make him one of the best people ever. he had flaws like everyone else, and he was far from perfect. It's kinda creepy to idolize him like this.

Ok. Michael fans don't get triggered. But he wasn't the best person to live(far from it). Although he was one of the if not the best singer of our time, he had MAJOR issues. One being that he was really perverted towards kids. He was very inappropriate towards them and he was desperate enough to create SECRET PASSAGEWAYS. LIKE What. Now I don't want to change anyone's opinion here, but Michael Jackson wasn't always happiness and sunshine. Well, actually he WAS that but in a very disturbing way.

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.

Michael Jackson, as great a dancer as he was, had surprisingly no formal dance training throughout his career. He was completely self-taught and worked very much in isolation when it came to perfecting many of his famous dance moves (Beers). He had a strong ability as a child to absorb and imitate what he saw quickly. Lacking a formal education, as Michael went around performing, he learnt by watching. Michael Jackson said that "the greatest education in the world is watching the masters at work" He was a perfectionist in many aspects, including dance, spending hours refining his steps and moves till they were flawless before they were presented on stage. Whatever I sing it really means.. Whatever I dance it's really makes me feel.. I don't sing it if I don't mean it.. Sing makes me moves From:"Me "Jay Michael" The Michael Jackson Lookalike, Soundalike and power dance alike..

13 Nikola Tesla Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current electricity supply system, X rays, Radio, Remote Control, Laser, and Electric motors. Tesla developed and used more.

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!

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..

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.

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.

14 Ashoka

He was the great king ever born in India. It was very difficult for any other king or emperor 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 of 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.

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 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.

I do not know if it is written in Muslim religion but he was a very cruel king who had killed thousands of people but one day while he was sleeping he saw someone and then understood he was real. He told him what he was doing was really unfair and in it's fear he stopped all his war. When he described artists his face he looked exactly like Jesus Christ. I am calling him great because he was a really bad person but when he saw a strange power he became good.

15 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 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.

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

She was a remarkable woman.

16 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.

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.

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!

He envisaged decades ago the final destination of mankind, I.e., Socialism, which was proved in practice by Lenin through November revolution in 1917. He is even more relevant today when capitalism is mired in deep crisis & exploited humanity is waiting for the onward march of socialism.

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.

17 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 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.

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.

Greatest President who got as much done as any President has done for America. He is intelligent, generous, passion and accept all the ungrateful and racist criticize towards him. He had to continue the stupid war left behind from the previous president who did not know how to win beside leaving a big hole in deficit that would almost collapsed the whole America. He finally get rid of Osama Bin Ladin, that save US and almost terminated Al Quadae. He had improved the US healthcare that aimed to help the poor but the Insurance companies had tried everything to boycott in order to protect heir pocket that they made billion dollars every year. He unified all allies and avoided the war as much as possible. Using sanction and pressure against Putin, the most dangerous guy who want to invade into every country. So many things happen to the world (Greece deficit, Syria war) that affect our stock market, and of course he got blamed for not being able to lift our economy higher...Yeah right, ...more

18 Mary, Mother of Jesus

The New covenant as well needed an ark. Mary was that ark, and in being the new ark she was purified, holy, and held the new covenant close to her when he was only a baby. A mother's love trumps all evil.

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.

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

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.

Dr.B.R. ambedkar is the modern God of the untouchables of India. He devoted his life to establish equality, freedom, brotherhood and justice for every human beings of India. This great principles of living have already been established by him in Indian Constitution. He is known as the father of Indian constitution. But it is unfortunate to say that such a great Indian's qualities and mission have been kept hidden and misunderstood among the Indians. I believe that one day he will definitely shine like a Sun. Clouds can cover the Sun for a long time but not for ever.

A multifaceted personality, a champion of human rights, an epoch maker, a lawyer, constitutionalist, politician, anthropologist, diplomat, educator, historian, a champion of women rights, a rationalist, free from any trace of charge with regard to honesty or character, a prolific writer, economist, a farsighted Iconoclast, immensely educated from leading universities with multiple doctorates, a great and terrific scholar, single handedly changed the course of events in favour of millions of people that too without any bloodshed or resorting to violence, always kept his revolution within the parameters of law, having great faith in democratic means, stressed on the prime importance of social eqality before economic or political freedom, an all time greatest personality, always relevant, far far ahead than his time, every person having regard to human dignity must acknowledge the unmatched contribution of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar to humanity at large.

"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.

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.

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.

23 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.

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.

The Founder of the U.S.A. & a Bad-A$$! George Washington was an amazing man who should be remembered around the world, he was a True Warrior and a man who was willing to die for Freedom!

The wisest, most. selfless, greatest visionary of all our founding fathers. He is also our greatest American president. We have had more than a few. He is my favorite, followed by Lincoln and Reagan.

24 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

It's sad that a pedophile (Muhammad) and a likely nonexistent person (Jesus) are in the top 10 while an intelligent and rational man who made an extremely important scientific discovery (Darwin, of course) is only at 49 as of posting this.

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.

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.
