His birth year is accepted to be the universal marker of the age. No one can express how great His influence to this dark helpless world.

Historically, religiously and philosophically, He easily remains the most influential human being to ever walk this Earth.

8 Sir Isaac Newton Sir Isaac Newton PRS was an English physicist and mathematician who is widely recognised as one of the most influential scientists of all time and a key figure in the scientific revolution.

Newton is the father of science making him the most important person who ever lived

This guy was the most brilliant mind that ever walked on planet earth

Invented a whole new branch of mathematic, just to answer a question he got asked.

Undoubtedly the most important person to ever live.Everyone is saying Jesus and Muhammed are most important.Ever thought how bad your life would have been without science and math? We would be superstitious and arguing like fools without logic.We would have no comfort or peace of mind in life.Why talk about people like Jesus and Muhammed who are in no way more advanced than the average person of that age? Just think,if Jesus or Muhammed are great,do you think they will even realise the importance of what Newton has done.Forget the fact that they will do it.They were ordinary people with no extraordinary abilities.Hence Isaac Newton deserves to be the most important man who ever lived.

9 Jagat Guru Rampal Ji

The only saint on this earth and will be only him for forever onwards. And his preaching will make every soul important and make us understand why we should try for liberation by doing worship based on our holy scriptures from which we are far away.

Thanks for creating light

Great person...
I am not capable to judge him or say about him

14 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.

Not religious myself either but you have to admit Jesus/Muhammed are obviously most influential people on human history. Einstein was obviously a very important individual given how he popularized physics, nobel prize for work which was part of beginning of quantum theory and obviously the theories of relativity so I voted for him. But some of these comments are dumb and I don't think you know anything about physics. Of course his theories and formulas are still used today, that is true for loads scientists/mathematicians with some from years before (think about how old arithmetic and geometry are), part of the reason he is on this list is because he became famous although he was very revolutionary and inspiring and intelligent, saying he is a genius and smartest of all time is dumb because what does that even mean, I'm sure there are lots of people with higher iqs and scientists with really important/impressive work that you will never have heard of.

I think he is a very important figure on american history

Smartest guy to ever live

15 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.

Unfortunately this survey ranks influential people, not good ones. WWII would not have occurred without Hitler; it is the greatest and most pervasive conflict in world history, resulting in the most significant restructuring of international relations and global economies ever realized. It could be argued that the world would be better off if he'd never been born, but he was, and he altered history... that's influential.

He was an awful person, but at the same time he changed billions of lives and set the stage for modern conflicts.

Although he is the man of hell, we all can agree he is very important to our everyday history. Without Adolf, our world would be completely different!

Just because he was a horrible man doesn't mean he was not important.

16 John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

18 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.

A selfless leader, modest, popular and yet a down to earth global icon who paid most of his attention to people he leads and "suffer little children" thus the Mandela Children Fund came to being. He's one African who walk the talk..

Thank you South Africa owes you a big thanks for all you have done to the country

Does anyone know how much he stole from South Africa? He should not be on this list!

19 Nikola Tesla Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current electricity supply system, X rays, Radio, Remote Control, Laser, and Electric motors. Tesla developed and used ...read more.

Tesla belongs much closer to the top... he changed the world with his discoveries and made it possible for everyone to have the comforts of heat and light... even though much of his work was suppressed those that know and researched Tesla's life know that he was an absolute genius.

Nikola Tesla accelerated technological progress by unquantifiable amounts. He was the Leonardo the Vinci of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Trying to put his contributions into perspective is difficult - without him, we would have a massively inefficient electric grid powered by DC current. We wouldn't have wireless recharging. The development of the electric motor would have been delayed by several decades. With the ability to instantly memorize everything he saw or read, Nikola Tesla's mind was so unbelievably strong that we'll likely be discovering things he had imagined hundreds of years from now.

No. 1

He was one of the most important contributors to the birth of commercial electricity - pele10brazil
