Top Ten Most Famous People

The Top Ten

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). ...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.

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)?

Jesus Christ is The Son of God. Throughout the Old Testament the prophets prophesied of His coming to the Earth to be The Sacrificial Lamb on the cross, to redeem us from our sins, and make us acceptable in the eyes of God. All we need to do, to gain the favor of God, is to accept Jesus Christ as Our Lord and Savior. I know this is a hard concept to understand by our finite mind. Only The Holy Spirit of God, opens up our spirit to understand the enormity of the miracle of Salvation through Jesus Christ. I suggest those interested, read throughout the Old Testament, that took centuries to write, by the inspiration of God, and see EVERY SINGLE PROPHECY that points to Jesus Christ as the Savior of humanity. No other writing can be that accurate, since all these writers wrote each prophesy throughout the span of centuries. Try it, Jesus is REAL!

Yup. And yet there's nothing to see evidence from except people and a book that's thousands of years old. Come back and talk to people when you have actual evidence, not crazy people screaming about an imaginary friend who can do anything for them and will protect them, despite never doing so. Millions of objectively "good" people die every day. And yet people keep believing in these imaginary friends because everybody else is doing it. But, I get it, it gives people something to believe in, it gives people hope, even when the only thing you can rely on is yourself. "Love everyone, except gay people, of course." Being Gay is a sin. Think again before you say how god is going to saw everyone, because, news flash, he doesn't exist.

2 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 under ...read more.

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.

Michael Jackson is the king of pop known by everyone of any age, sex, ethnicity, country and origin. Michael Jackson was mobbed in every country poor or rich. Yes Elvis and the Beatles were huge and sold more than Michael Jackson did well guess what. Michael Jackson sold 350 million records worldwide in only 6 studio albums. Elvis Presley sold 600 million records in 23 studio albums and the Beatles 600 million records in 13 studio albums. So Michael Jackson is only below by 250,000,000 records in 7 and and 17 less albums than both Elvis and the Beatles. But apart from sales Michael Jackson was loved and recognized in China, Japan, India, Thailand, Seoul, Malaysia, Philippines all those Asian countries he got mobbed every time he went. Africa he was crowned a king and loved out there they all wanted to see him even the poorest parts of Africa went after Michael Jackson. Europe, South America, North America and Australia all loved Michael Jackson when he performed all his tours he did ...more

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.

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.

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

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...

But nobody compared Michael Jackson to the messengers, are you crazy?

Muhammad is the most blessed prophet. Allah favours him and in the quran he is ranked the most highest rank of all human kind.

4 Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler (April 20, 1889 - April 30, 1945) was a German 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 ...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

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

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.

This man is the most famous I knew him way before I knew Michael jackson

Even if people say he should be infamous, there are still people who Like him (modern natzies). I don’t like him, but I know someone in the world do

5 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.

Albert Einstein was a great person.. He even preferred death over surgery because he didn't want to have an artificial life.. That's something easy to say but its really brave

I think Einstein was a really good person. I never paid a lot of attention to him until I read Charlie Thorne and the last equation (thank you, Stuart Gibbs).

do you know that I was born the same day as he died that is amazing

His average brain of math was 15 percent bigger than a normal person

6 Elvis Presley Elvis Presley was an 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.

The man kick-started Rock and Roll. Although he died young, he's still well known and recognized 70 years after his rise.

Known in practically every country in the world and known by his first name. The greatest and the biggest star ever, the most famous man after Christ who has ever lived. Nobody will ever equal his achievements, all attained in just over 20 years, absolutely fantastic man. We love you Elvis, God bless you.

No one is more famous than elvis, the artist of the century. An artist whose talent will be never be equalled in 20,000 lifetimes! Elvis shook the world and it is a better place because he lived in it. 2019 and he is still the leader of the pack. Love you baby.

More than famous, above and beyond a great star. Elvis is a phenomenon, a man of unexplainable talent and charisma. He has it all and nobody else will ever come anywhere near him. The one and only Elvis.

7 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.

Yes, Americans would know who he is, but people outside of America up to the age of about 14 generally have no idea about him. Around that age, they do now of him, but most still do not know his significance.

dude like I feel like he is one of the most famous presidents like tons of people have heard of him

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

Well slaves were actually freed at time of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Belal was a slave from Africa and was freed by Muhammad and his companions. 1441 years ago everyone was given rights. But nations and people chose to use their own ideas. No where in all the Holy Books whether the Torah, Bible or the Quran does it say you treat a human as or like a slave. We are all slave of Allah, who has created us and unto him we return.

8 Princess Diana Diana, Princess of Wales, was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, who is the eldest child and heir apparent of Queen Elizabeth II.

First royal to break out of the old traditional role and still be recognized as a royal.

By far the most famous woman of the twentieth century. She was loved by all from every corner of the Earth for her beauty, passion, and heart. Unlike others who's fame comes and goes, her fame will move beyond time and she will forever be in our hearts.

She was an amazing young women and she did so much good in her life. If only she lived longer

SHE HAS DONE GREAT THINGS TO CHANGE THE WORLD. SHE HELPS OTHERS IN NEED AND I THINK SHE IS A REALLY INSPIRING AND TALENTED YOUNG WOMAN. HELP VOTE SO SHE COULD BE ON TOP OF THE LIST.

9 Shahrukh Khan Shah Rukh Khan, also known as SRK, is an Indian film actor, producer, and television personality. Referred to in the media as the "Badshah of Bollywood", "King of Bollywood", "King Khan", he has appeared in more than 80 Bollywood films, and earned numerous accolades, including 14 Filmfare Awards.

He act really good, and every single day I search his name on Internet to find out is there anything that people post about him..

Great actor with over billion fans in his name.

The best actor in the world

Sri is the most famous person among actors and maybe also others

10 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

Whoever said he looks like chicken noodle soup or feet, you are disrespecting a religion and a great man. May God curse you.

We don't want god to curse anyone. He is very disrespecting but we do want others to be treated the same way as yourself.

She looks like chicken noodle soup

Thank you MillerPenny I kind of lost control of myself, you're right.

Not saying he's a good person, I absolutely despise him. Terrible to women and other races as well as just being downright stupid. We need a better president or this country will just collapse! (This is coming from a 12 year old, guys. Just an FYI) But he should be higher, most people know of him. Though he is outrageous, don't get me wrong.

I don't wanna get into politics even though I do think Donald Trump should be maybe a little higher I mean for crying out loud right now he is our President I mean seriously I think he needs to be higher but maybe that's just me.

Y'all are saying you despise him and that he's a horrible president, but would you rather have Clinton? She stole from the white house, just saying. And it's YOUR fault that he's our president. You voted for him. Twice. And he got the votes. If you didn't want him to be president, then why'd you even vote for him? This is all on you. And, he's saving our country. He's passing laws, and doing things that help us. Don't get me wrong, I don't like him, but I'd rather have him than Clinton. Just saying.

UH he is the current president of united states of course you've heard of him

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

he was standing up for black people and he has so much respect

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.

he made peace with black and white people (is that racist I don't know)

He was a brave man who stood up for what he believed in. He was a very non-violent person and I really admire that.

13 Mahatma Gandhi Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India.

I love mahatma gandhi.. Proud of be Indian...

He inspired a whole nation to seek independence via non violent methods. Every person in India knows who he was. India has a population of 1.3 billion. His teacgings are also popular outside India. I believe his name should hold the 6 position.

He was a savior. He wanted to fight a war. WITHOUT violence. These days its hard for people to not do things without thinking that everyone wants to fight them.

No one can replace The "Great soul karamchand Gandhi". He was an icon of Non -violence, Perseverance, Strength and equality. We should proud that we had the gandhi. He was the man proved the proverb "No pain No gain".

14 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 ...read more.

Even if people like Obama, there's no arguing against the fact that he's done nothing good at all for America.

So killing the person in charge of 9-11 doesn't help america? It could've prevented several terrorist attacks!

He was a man who knew what he was dealing with and knew exactly how to solve the issues without ruining the already bad situation.

I choose Barack Obama, bc was a really Good President, very loved, I Think many people know him

That has almost nothing to do with popularity. He stays out of the public eye these days.

Lied once about your health insurance. Old silver spurs Lump 17,000 plus lies. America loves this man!

15 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.

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.

One of the greats. If he wasn't around we wouldn't have cars, bikes, planes and helicopters. He achieved so many things and did so many things. He also made the most amazing painting the mon alias. What a star. He did so many things and he was born in the 1400s and people still remember him.

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

He was the country's first black chief executive, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election.

Amazing person... The people of South Africa should appreciate what he's done. He should be higher than #19 and should be #1 or at least the top ten

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

20 Moses

He's a super important part of history if he didn't free the Jews from Egypt then Christianity would never have been founded so he should be at 1 or 2

He saved gods people so I say he should be at LEAST number 2 on the list

Prophet Moses... he has to be number 2

#2 if that many people know about Jesus more should know about Moses or at least equal if you're Jewish do you call Jesus by name or what hmm so many questions so few answers
