Top Ten Most Famous People

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

He's a good person, but that doesn't mean he's the most famous, may I remind you. - MaxAurelius

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)?

Of course Jesus is number one on the list. Not only did he create that largest and most influential religion in the world, he is also the most recognisable. A lot of western culture, especially law and the judicial systems, are based heavily in judeo-christian tradition. During the Middle Ages, the Catholic Church dominated throughout Europe, and the pope was the most powerful man on Earth. This, of course, all originally stemmed from one man/God: Jesus. Of course, I'm Catholic, and that might mean that I could have some bias here, but he really is Extraordinarily influential today as well as in the past.

who doesn't know mj? undoubtedly most famous!

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.

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.

Thriller outsold the Bible

3 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...

ASALAMU ALAYKUM HE IS THE ONE AND ONLY PROPHET WE SHOULD ALL BELIEVE IN HIM PEACE BE UPON THE PROPHET AND ALLAH HIS LORD AND THE ONE AND ONLY LORD WHO IS MINE I HOPE HE BECOMES THE MOST FAMOUS AND EVERY MUSLIM KNOWS WHO HE IS WA ALAYKUM AS SALAAM

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.

He's bad but a legend

6 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 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

You all do know lincoln only freed the slaves to save the union he didn't do it just cause he didn't support slavery he didn't even free all of them. He even wrote "If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that"

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 IS THE MAN WHO SHOWED THE MEANING OF LIFE COULD CHANGE

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.

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

Yeah in my opinion too!

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.

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

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.

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

16 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.

Number one person in the history.

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.

He was a very spiritual person, great philosopher and Great scientist also. He gave message of equality and believe in humanity. He raised his voice to uplift the status of women. He wrote,"why we should think bad about woman who gives birth to Kings".

He was founder of "Sikhism" religion. I would like to mention few lines of his great writings. He said,"God is one, his name is true, he is a being to do everything in this world, he is fearless and enemy to none. He is timeless and beyond birth and death. He can be known as Guru's grace. Meditate on his name. He was ture before creation. He was true when ages commenced. He is true now. He will always be true."

The most advanced and knowledgeable prophet. Spoke out for female liberation and rights before anyone else. Founder of the Sikh religion. Founder of the Provision of Free Food to the needy. He emphasized on changing oneself rather trying to change the world.

Caligula may be defined and evil and psychotic, but he is still one of the most famous people who ever lived. Almost everyone knows his name. And his bad reputation may or may not have been deserved. His reign started out good and he was loved by all. It wasn't until after he recovered from a serious illness that he turned into a madman. It's believed by many that the illness had an affect on him or that he suffered from epilepsy. Also, some of his supposed excesses do not appear in any contemporary accounts and were almost surely invented by Suetonius in his "Twelve Caesars" were was written almost 80 years later.

Grafters and thieves spoiled his reputation

49 Alexander the Great Alexander the Great Alexander III of Macedon, commonly known as Alexander the Great, was a King of the Ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon and a member of the Argead dynasty.

Alexander the third of Macedon created an empire that spanned from the Adriatic sea to the Indian subcontinent. He defeated the massive Persian empire, and transformed the tiny kingdom he was left with after his father's death into one of the largest empires ever seen. 2300 years after his death he is still remembered, and will be long after the movie stars and singers of today have become a footnote at best.

Greatest commander in History of Mankind

50 Stephen Curry Stephen Curry Wardell Stephen Curry II is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association. Many players and analysts have called him the greatest shooter in NBA history. He is one of the most beloved, as well as hated, stars in the NBA today.

Even though I wouldn't say he is one of the top 10 or even 20 NBA players of all time (as of now he might end up becoming one of the top 20 but who knows what's going to happen to his career) I can say that he is definitely one of the most famous NBA players, if not the most famous NBA player.

He's the best in the league by far. If he hadn't had a slow start to his career, he'd be known as the Best of All time. But he will still go down in History.

If you haven't seen him shoot watch his pregame warm-up biggest fan

I love STEPH but come on. Your telling me that there are only 41 more famous people then him in the history of the world? That's just false 🤷‍♂️
