81 Laozi

Lao Tzu who left a very famouse book to Chinese, to whole world, that is Tao Te Ching. His thoughts after thousands years of inspection, proved to be the truth.
Formless yet complete, existing before heaven and earth. Silent and limitless, alone and unchanging. Pervading everywhere, yet untiring. It is the Mother of all things under heaven. I do not know its name so I call it 'Tao'
-Lao Tzu - Tao Te ching, verse 25

Changed the game of baseball and every other sport played in the USA today! An amazing role model! Why is Kim Kardashian on here? Seriously? Jackie is an inspiration.

He changed baseball forever.
He had incredible courage and he was the first African American player in the MLB - Ajkloth

91 Joseph Stalin Joseph Stalin Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin was a Georgian dictator, and was the leader of the Soviet Union from the mid-1920s until his death in 1953. Holding the post of the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, he was effectively the dictator of the state.

How is he on this list? He's killed more people than any other world dictator!

There's one more guy who has killed more people than stalin. So called Islamic prophet Mohammed.

While this may be surprising to some Stalin holds A place for a few reasons, The first and foremost is Proving the Socialism Can and does Provide the means to advance as a nation. Not only did he take the Soviet Union to the Heights of a World Super Power But he Did in the shortest time anyone on the planet has ever seen. He also Led his Nation to victory against what many thought to be an invincible army of Fascists. Adolph Hitler thought he could steamroll the peoples revolution and spread Nazism, He was wrong. - De_Pone

He built the Soviet Union in to an industrialized superpower and challenged American hegemony. Improved living standards for hundreds of millions of people.

Great guy - DylannRoof

92 Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg

Really? Does a man who makes his entire life playing video games (not that I have a problem with that) really deserve to be 34th on this list? Above Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison? Need I remind you, without them there would not be electricity. No electricity = Internet, computers, video games or any of those things that Felix needs.

Is this serious? We're talking about the Greatest People in the history of mankind! People who built monuments and inspired millions and saved a whole kind of people from genocide and discovered electricity!

I don't care how "great" a guy he is. He plays video games, something existent for less than 1% of human history, for a living. - higgsboson2142

Lol...People Are Saying His 34th But Now His 218...I Know He Donated Over 12 Million Dollars To Charity But...218th? He Should Be In Number 10 Or More Or Less...

The greatest leader of all time - venomouskillingmachine

94 Tim Tebow Tim Tebow Timothy Richard Tebow is an American professional baseball outfielder in the New York Mets organization and a former professional American football player in the National Football League.

In a time when being openly religious is signing up to be prosecuted this man on a national stage has refused to be bullied by the media and spends so much time and money doing charity. Not to mention he's a hero to us Broncos fans.

95 William Shakespeare William Shakespeare William Shakespeare was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist.

346? 346?
How do Jerry Springer, PewDiePie, Marzia, Kobe Bryant, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Robert Downey Jr. , Angelina Jolie and Dolly Parton beat Shakespeare? I'm fine with modern day celebrities, but they have to influence the future. 100 years from now, will anyone remember PewDiePie or Kim Kardashian? Probably not. Shakespeare, however, has stood the test of time. His plays influenced the entire world, and none of these people who I have listed can ever come close to that. I think it's sad that there are people who would call a PewDiePie video, a Lady Gaga song or a Kobe Bryant dunk better than anything Shakespeare did. He is, truly, one of the greatest people ever, and I will gladly debate with anyone who disagrees.

Shakespeare invented over 1700 common words we still use to this day - Ajkloth

Shakespeare formed Modern English, but he's only 98. What the heck... - Pony

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

100 Subhas Chandra Bose Subhas Chandra Bose Subhas Chandra Bose, was an Indian nationalist whose defiant patriotism made him a hero in India, but whose attempt during World War II to rid India of British rule with the help of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan left a troubled legacy.

Greatest of freedom fighters. Had he got even little support from other leaders that time he would have done wonders. We would have got freedom at least 10, years before without the tragedy followed by partition

One of the greatest freedom fighter of India

"He is the greatest patriot of India."

Father of India.
