Most Important People of All Time

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.

Of course, he is the most important. Without him, there would be no hope for the future. Everything would be bleak, hopeless, and nothing would stop people from doing evil things such as porn, adultery, sexism, and sexual abuse. He is the Almighty!

Wether you like it or not the only way to Paradise is through Jesus. He loves us and doesn't want us to perish. There are pretty sins that are drawing us away from him. Stop the masturbation, gossiping, racism, sexism, porn, disrespecting parents, adultery, fornication, alcohol and drug abuse.

Jesus Christ where sent by God to do His works, and priority and that is to introduce and bring back the Kingdom/dominion that man lost since the fall of Adam. His first message at Capernaum was "The Kingdom... Is at hand" This statement shows the important of the Kingdom to Jesus and the Father and to us as His creation. In Genesis 1:26.. God give us this Dominion/Kingdom but In Genesis 3: Satan stole this Kingdom but Jesus came to bring back this Kingdom back to us and someday He Jesus will return back to earth and reign to rule as King of kings and the Lord of lords.

Jesus Christ is God and man in one person.
Jesus Christ was not just a good person in moralic respects.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (Bible, John 3:16)
This means, he, who was without any sin and mistake, died for us for our sins and mistakes, so that we are not longer unconnected from God because of his wrath against sins,
if we accept his sacrifice and take him in our life and heart as ruler.
I recommend to watch the movie "Time Changer".

2 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.

The Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.W the real Leader of Whole the world in all fields of humanity and universe, He was the extraordinary commander, extraordinary Scholar of whole known field of life and the nature. The Teacher, the Guide from Allah for all creations, Extraordinary Statesman. But he was the only blessing of Allah for whole the universe and the creations.

It's a request for all of you guys there please do not add Muhammad (S.A.W.W) In these type of polls... It's a request. We don't need any proof or any vote to proof that Muhammad (PBUH) is the most important person ever born. We all know this universe is just made for him... So brothers and Sisters do not add Prophet Muhammad in these type of polls

Muhammad (ﷺ) is the only character in the world whose all aspects of life are still safe and available for guidance. So he becomes only role model for every one in life. He did every good practice in the best manner. He set down the examples and trained his pioneer followers that they became the 2nd best examples in different aspects of life. May Allah Bless all of them... Aameen.

He is the most important person in the world for forever he is the one who is above all humanity...I love him and I will follow him till death.. He is the last messenger of Allah..HE SHOULD BE RANK FIRST IN ALL

3 Leonardo Da Vinci Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci, more commonly Leonardo da Vinci or simply Leonardo, was an Italian polymath whose areas of interest included invention, painting, sculpting, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, writing, history, poetry, ...read more.

This is the man who has brang us out of the dark. Math, Science, Art, Inventions, without him, who knows where we could have been. Thumbs up for this guy!

He is the best on art

He Th Best

I m from India but still I love him
And the most important thing from which I know is THE ADELINE RUSH

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

If I ever become dictator of the world, I will rule using his ideals. I will use peace and my primary goal will be to make everyone happy without disrupting the earth.

This man changed the world, a man that we knew and could relate. Different from religion he focused on spirituality and for that reason he deserves my vote.

There is no such thing as Jesus therefore first place goes to this fella

I'm peaceful like him maybe someday I become president

5 Benjamin Franklin Benjamin Franklin was an American polymath and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. Franklin was a leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, freemason, postmaster, scientist, inventor, humorist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat.

He invented so many important things

6 Genghis Khan Genghis Khan c. 1162 – August 18 1227, born Temüjin, was the founder and Great Khan of the Mongol Empire, which became the largest contiguous empire in history after his death.

He was an extremely terrible person, he and his army killed 40 million + people. This seems odd saying this, but if genghis khan did not kill anyone, or lead a brutal army, or kill his own brother, he would be a remembered person for many good things. The reason you don't hear about him in school is your teachers probably think he is too terrible to teach about. Unless, of course, you are not one of the kids in 3rd-6th grade. (just an estimate.) He basically INVENTED the idea of FREE RELIGION. Also, everyone overlooks him cause of the bad stuff he did, but like I said, without the killing and all, he would have been someone u had learned about in 2nd grade! Yall might say "No, _____________ invented free-religious ideas", but in 1160 A.D-2000 A.D, we can assume that he coined it. boom

How is Muhammad Below Genghis.? Whoever made this list... honestly.

My ancestor! He's the top

Dominated 70% of the World

7 Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King Jr. (born Michael King Jr.; January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an African American minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968. King is best known for advancing civil rights through ...read more.

I choose martin Luther king becurse he was willing to go to jail just to change the way white people thought about black people.

Gen is the reason I'm able to be free today

There is literally a holiday in his name

The greatest activist in the world

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.

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.

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

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

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

10 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 ended slavery across the US

Best president ever

The Contenders

11 Henry Ford Henry Ford was an American industrialist, the founder of the Ford Motor Company, and the sponsor of the development of the assembly line technique of mass production.
12 Bill Gates William Henry "Bill" Gates III is an American business magnate, entrepreneur, philanthropist, investor, and programmer.

Most important man, he changed the world and are still changing it!, he have given over 28$ BILLION to charity, and he's planing on given most % of he's networth to charity when he's dies, He have saved over 5 million people by donating only he's self, Bill Gates has given away 48 percent of his net-worth for charity since 2007. And are people really voting some singers, actors, football players?

Changed society to be more open to the future by devices and technology

At the same time Bill Gates is pretty smart man but this came overtime"

Simply because our technology wouldn't be the same as now without him.

13 Thomas Edison Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor.

With out him there would be no light bulb and many other things we take for granted

Well the lightbulb was already invented, Thomas Edison just made it commercially viable

Tesla was much more influentiol on the world in comparison to Edison espesialy considering alternating current.

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

Thanks for creating light
we really enjoy it so much.

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.

He is the single most important person in human history...he literally gave us the language of whatever God is. Setting the stage for future discoveries.

Not everyone is Christian, you know. Pele is a Football player! At least this gut did something to affect our livess

Without him we could not invent anything. He is the only one who brought revolutionary in science and physics.

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.

His awful and dishonest actions inevitably led to the establishment of the United Nations and a more intertwined world society! Cruel personality and a wicked mind, but shared great aspirations for his beloved country as a Fhürer of Germany in desperate need for help after WW1! Natural for germans to look for advice towards a great and powerful leader who could eventually exterminate poverty in Germany and bring jobs! But again, Hitler failed to achieve a more stable and transparent Germany:( But despite his awful actions against the jews and world stability, his actions did indeed bring thousands of jobs to Germany and almost exterminated poverty! He should've taken a "chill-pill" and relaxed some more, instead of constantly seeking world dominance as Napoleòn did!

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!

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

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.

Tremendous influence.. All wonderful. Peace maker, peace activist, brilliant lyricist. total love of a man! 1

Should be much higher.

Best musician..best human, ever!

17 Charles Darwin Charles Robert Darwin was an English naturalist and geologist, best known for his contributions to evolutionary theory.

He made me flunk my reading class.

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.

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.

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.

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