21 Moses 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

I love Moses because I am Jewish

He is known for his roles in Splash, Big, Turner & Hooch, Philadelphia, Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, Saving Private Ryan, You've Got Mail, The Green Mile, the Toy Story Franchise, Cast Away, The Da Vinci Code, Captain Phillips, and Saving Mr. more.

He is just plain awesome and like everybody else on this list is dead

He is great! One of my all time actors. I loved his work on Forrest Gump.

23 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.

William Shakespeare changed the world forever. He is a big part in world literature, and he invented a bunch of words we use today, such as "fashionable", "bedroom", "useful", "mimic", "successful", and much more. He is pretty much the greatest poet, play writer and actor in history. Shakespeare deserves to be higher up this list.

Many of his works are underrated. He was a fantastically talented man and writer.

I don't really like Romeo and Juliet because I had to read it in English Class. :(

24 Guru Nanak Guru Nanak

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.

30 Neil Armstrong Neil Armstrong

In 10,000 years, not a single other person on this list will be remembered, except for the name of the first human being to leave the planet and walk on another world; Neil Armstrong.

So I tried to read up on facts... 5 minutes later it appears that Armstrong was the first man on the moon. Literally, on the moon. He was the first to walk on the moon. Seems like Russia was the first to land on or hit the moon. All of it is amazing to me and just thought I would look up the info per another commenter's suggestion.

He is awesome and by the way he is not the first man on the moon he is the first American astronaut on the moon. The first man was Russian. You guys should read up on facts.

Anyone who says that the Russians "ever" put a man on the moon is either totally brainwashed, uneducated, or just a troll.

35 Walt Disney Walt Disney Walter Elias "Walt" Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons.

I think Walt is the most popular because every kid know what mickey mouse is and what disney is

Like he always said " everything started with mouse." With out him and the mouse there wouldn't be Disney world.

Like Henry Ford and many other wealthy Americans, Disney was a fascist and a supporter of Adolf Hitler.

Who has'nt heard of Disney? If I could Mickey Mouse on the list, he'd be top 5.

Her music may not be the best and the most outstanding nowadays but, no one can claim that she doesn't have talent. After all - she IS queen and she is definitely famous enough to be on this list, and I think she should be higher up the list.

This is Beyonce. She should be way higher on the list; I mean, come on. She is literally known as the QUEEN. SHE SIS CALLED QUEEN BEY FOR A REASON
