Darwin came up with the theory of evolution, and I greatly admire him for it, considering he was a Christian.. If it weren't for him I might be a Christian, when I am strongly atheist. And the pressure he was under; he was in a creationist world, his book the Origin of Species was ridiculed, yet he didn't keep his theory hidden for fear of this happening- he showed it to the world and changed the subject of science forever.
Darwin changed the way the scientific view views humans in the universe. He gave us the tools to truly trace humanity's origins through verifiable means, and made it possible to answer how we got here in the first place. - Robobrain
EVERY person in the advanced world knows who he is, what he did & either has come to understand about our existence thanks to him or holds strong opposing beliefs. Either way... He changed "life" for EVERYONE.

My one over-riding goal, even more than being God's representative on Earth, was to one day find myself between Socrates and Tupac.
This young girl was like anywhere young girl. She liked music, had crushes. But she was treated as inhuman. All because she was Jewish. Her family and another family and a dentist had to go into hiding. Luckily this kind woman Miep Gies gave them the attic and the back of the house. Unfortunately she was discovered in 1945 August. Nobody knows the person who betrayed her. But she and the others were sent to westerbrok camp and the aushtwitz where Edith frank died and then Bergen Belsen Anne and marmot were the only members of the family still together. Otto frank was the only one to survive
She was an inspirational person.
Who made this list? Tupac is more influential on a social cultural level than Elvis in the world? Michael Jackson is more important than Elvis in changing music? " Before Elvis there was nothing " said John Lennon, and he was right. Elvis made black music ( it was called race-music back in the fifties ) popular by mixing it with white music all over the world ( a very risky thing to do in the racist US ). He started ( now taking for granted ) a teen revolution in attitude, style, clothes etc... Without him there would be no Michael Jackson or Tupac ( and so many other entertainers, black and white ). He was pretty important and influential on a cultural level all over the world.
He flipped the world and everything changed. The old repressive ways were replaced with a new freedom... Entertainers today can say, do, and be what they wish because of the social revolution that began with Elvis Presley.

Pac is the realist that ever wrote. He was a prophet for everything he wrote with his pen happened and is still happening today. Like he put it "I don't know how to change the world, but I can guarantee you that I will spark the brain that will change the world." So many people have changed their lives for the better because of this mam. He is the Black Jesus not only for black people in America, but for all the people that suffered. He was the stone that the government refused but the food that the people needed.
Alright, I'll be the first to comment on my homie. I am a white 13 year old, yet I still praise his music, knowledge, lifestyle, and everything else. I have a picture of him on the wall and his own book. He may be forgotten but he is still in this child's eyes and he was a good person and he teaches me through his music. R.I.P. friend, thug till I die, and even when I die cause I'll be in THUG MANSION.
