The Top Ten

1 Jesus Christ 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.

Jesus should always be number one he died for us on the cross he went through so much pain and yet he is 3rd on the list I don't really think this makes any kind of sense any smart person would put him as #1 because he is #1. Reality check you live in a world full of Jesus

You Know The people who created the Christian faith were not jesus it was 2 woman who broke the Jewish faith by worshiping jesus who the Jews got crossed if jesus died in a car crash you would worship cars - Du

Who hasn't heard of Jesus? Very well known bloke, think he was in a book as well.

What's Hitler doing on a list of famous people (as opposed to infamous or notorious people)?

who doesn't know mj? undoubtedly most famous!

Man mj is just like... Hot / who on earth would not admit that he is just amazing, if someone saw his signature there would be a bloody mob just to touch it.

Michael Jackson as time goes by more will discover what a creative genius and original mind this man was. More will understand his humanitarian efforts, his love of trees and this planet. His childlike qualities will be understood to be true and authentic. Perhaps a luminary. Certainly a man we loved to hear and loved to watch. A great dancer. A beautiful being. So glad to have lived during his time. He was all about love. Miss him dearly.

He is the best person in the world... love you a lot!

3 Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler was an Austrian politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of Nazi Germany, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939 and was a central figure ...read more.

People ask why he is on this list but it IS the most famous not the most liked. Adolf Hitler is famous because everyone knows who he is! We have learnt about him amost every single year in school - ILostMyShoe

People that are well known and not liked are infamous not famous - ParasN2000

If I went out and asked 1000 people over the age of 10 who Adolf Hitler was 99% would get it right. If I asked who Gandhi was, there wouldn't be as many right anwsers. My point has been made.

He is the most famous because everyone hates him so much. He is #2 most hated person on earth (after Justin beiber) so that's why he is on this list.

Hilter for president

4 Muhammad 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.

There is no god but Allah and hardhat Muhammad saw is his servant and messenger.

He is the best of best because he gave his life for serving humanity. He married widows, loved children, granted respect to women, married a 9 years old girl but treated her like his daughter until she became a mature. He never did anything personally. Only did and told what was right and ordered by Allah. But still has fear of burning in hell, care for his people and humanity more than his own children.

I think, Muhammad PBUH and Isa (Jesus) RA both are equally famous personalities on earth. MJ can't be compared with the messengers and prophets of GOD... MJ is famous only where T.V. or radio available but Muhammad PBUH and Jesus RA both are well known by people even in those places where Media is not available...

As my point of view, Muhammad PBUH and Jesus RA are equally famous because every Muslim believe on Jesus RA as He is the 1 of prophets of GOD and every Christian knows Muhammad PBUH as Messenger of Islam... And both Muhammad PBUH and Jesus RA are well known is Jews' Hindus' Sikhs and many other religions...

I love Hazrat Muhammad peace be upon him, He is prophet of Allah

6 Elvis Presley Elvis Presley Elvis Presley was a American musician and actor. Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. ...read more.

Elvis was a artist that had no boundaries, the things he could have done and perform all over the world would have been second to none, it's so sad he didn't have or take the opportunity to do more, but what he did do was outstanding, and the world is a sadder place with out him!

I would have to argue that throughout my travels, anytime I say I'm from Tennessee I am immediately asked about Elvis no matter where in the world I am. I have to also say that Jack Daniels is also brought up quite a bit.

Elvis had been the most famous person living for a couple of decades, up until his death in 1977. No-one disputed it when he was alive. Now, years later, people tend to want to put their own twist on things.

Ric Flair woo! Woo!

7 Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali (January 17th 1942 - June 3rd 2016) was an American former professional boxer . He was generally considered among the greatest heavyweights in the history of the sport.

Wolpert summaries the profound effect that Jinnah had on the world:

Few individuals significantly alter the course of history. Fewer still modify the map of the world. Hardly anyone can be credited with creating a nation-state. Mohammad Ali Jinnah did all three.

Muhammad Ali Made a Great Decision to Be a Muslim. He was a Great Boxer!

He did not exactly have many choices, being from a dirt poor background, boxing was one way to escape his seeming destiny

I think Elvis is more famous - SoldierOfFortune

The very first Renaissance man. Had the world regarded him as a hero much like Jesus Christ, we may be better off today.

11 Abraham Lincoln 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 through its Civil War - its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis .

He was a man ahead of his time... Had a heart for America and all people

Anyone can relate to Lincoln. No matter who they are. In some way he has positively impacted the lives of all Americans for the past 150 years. He was great man but also just a man. He was humble and liked to tell dirty jokes. When I learn about him I can see myself in him. I think that is why he is so loved.

He's an American hero. enough said

He's famous

12 Gautama Buddha Gautama 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.

Because a good guy and find a way for a people that hard to live, also find a way to peace a world from suffer, old, sick and dead. And I loved him so much And he failed to peace the world he did try his best to human life

Master was great, his teachings reflects human life as it is,

he was one of the first who sacrifice everything and work for human welfare even after attaining enlightenment.

And this list which puts even Michael Jackson & Adolf Hitler ahead of Master,

I don't understand.

Master explained the truth of the life and always emphasized reality.

Master never a taught single thing bad or unethical or dishonest or illogical or impractical in his teaching.

Yeah in my opinion too!

Can't even think of anybody with him on the list.
Enlightened One.

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

Martin Luther King Jr is a great person. He did many great things. He fought for the black people. I love his I Have A Dream. speech. It makes me want to do something really great. He definitely is a awesome and great person in our world.

Martin Luther King JR is a man with a lot of hopes. He gave the 'I HAVE A DREAM" speech. He was a brave man who wanted to have a voice in freedom to all. He wanted to have part in a honorable acceptable world. Martin wanted to be the leader for the blacks. He was a good leader for his non violence beliefs for everyone. He wanted freedom, but not through violence.

I have a dream that he will be number one

Without this guy, black people would still be slaves. Slavery is so wrong. I mean come on, just beacause of peoples skin color they are slaves! So stupid...

14 George Washington 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.

He was one of the greatest presidents of the United States and he was one of the founding fathers of the United States

Washington, the first president of the United States, was a fair, honest, brave, and kind man. He had led the Revolutionary War, and had the chance to become the king of the U.S.A. He was fair and honest, so he did not become the king because America had just fought a war to be independent from Kings and royalty. Why have a another king? Washington instead became a president. He was always brave and noble. I admire him for that. FACT: at Washingtons president ceremony, he forgot his Bible (which he needed) luckily, they were in a church and quickly found a substitute. Now they always bring an extra Bible to president ceremonies.

He did more for America has or ever will, and he certainly deserves to be on the list if Michael Jackson and Hitler of all people are.

15 Nelson Mandela 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.

I honestly think a man with such qualities and respect to human kind. Being known in every country should be number 1

He is undoubtedly the world's most respected icon and is Globally recognised for his personal well-being and honour to human kind.

Think Nelson should be number 1

He was the south African version of Arthur luthu

Good he deserves to be at least number 10 because he doesn't like certain stuff which is very good and the "certain stuff" should be banned again

He deserves nothing! He is mean, cruel and just terrible!

Above all presidents to serve in office, Franklin Delano Roosevelt is considered the best. A man coming into the White House, later elected another 3 times, took on America's greatest challenge in the World's darkest time. We all looked up to him.
