The Top Ten

1 Christopher Columbus Christopher Columbus Christopher Columbus was an Italian explorer, navigator, colonizer and citizen of the Republic of Genoa.

Contrary to popular belief, he wasn't the first to arrive to America, he wasn't the first to conclude that the Earth was round. And to make things worse, he didn't even arrive to North America at all. Worst of all, he caused a genocide towards the native territory. And the truth is, Christopher Columbus is actually evil and should not be considered one of the greatest people of all time. - SamHalls2015

He did not discover America. He did not discover that the world was round. He killed all the Indians. Why are teachers praising him? - Atham

Congratulations, not a contemporary pop star is #1! - Alkadikce

He didn't discover america, and he didn't even no where he was

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.

He's the greatest in history and should not even be on this list at ALL.

Muhamad was just a stupid child molester and schizophrenic womanizer who killed hundreds and thousands people who didn't believed his lies. and nowaday ISIS and buoko haram are muhamads grand children - god_of_art


We Muslims don't say anything about Jesus or Buddha so why don't you do the same? - Votebotingsucks

5 Diana, Princess of Wales Diana, Princess of Wales 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.

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

Thomas Edition change our lives by opening up a company and hire scientist, technician and engineer to work in harsh environment with low pay, forcing them to research how to light a bulb while he seats comfortably at his office drinking coffee. When the bulb is light up he gain from it financially and fame although the "lighting up the bulb" wasn't he's doing nor work. Its was his employee who been working in harsh and dangerous laboratory to finally light the fire in that glass. - Raizulee

Thomas Edison didn't invent the lightbulb; he only improved it. Everything you learned about him in school was either very exaggerated or it never happened at all.

Yeah, he electrocuted an elephant just to prove his point: That AC was deadly; Tesla was better than him even though he was kind of sexist and racist.

Tesla desevers way more atention then this guy!

Religion and the concept of deities is an illusion that has deceived mankind for thousands of years.

Jesus is just like Muhammad, a clone I say and the only different is one is a founder of Muslim and one is a founder of Christianity, they both pedophiles, murderer, liar and a hypocrite. The reason I put Jesus on top of Muhammad in this list is because since the population of Christians is more than Muslim... Than Jesus is more overrated than Muhammad. - Raizulee
