Greatest People Alive Today

The Top Ten
1 Dalai Lama The Dalai Lama is a monk of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" school of Tibetan Buddhism, the newest of the schools of Tibetan Buddhism founded by Je Tsongkhapa. The Dalai Lama title was created by Altan Khan (Shunyi Wang of China) in 1578. The 14th and current Dalai Lama is Tenzin Gyatso.

He is a paragon of compassion, can marry science and spirituality and works tirelessly for world peace. He also admits his own failings, what's not to love?

Seriously misguided, the less St is... I mean come on... Obama is good but on the first rank! Goes against common sense as also with Elizabeth

Because he is friend with Brian blessing making him officially the greatest man alive (after Brian blessing)

I'm a bit perplexed as to why Donald Trump is #1. This peaceful and great man should be #1 (no offense to Trump)

2 Elizabeth II Elizabeth II is Queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms. Elizabeth was born in London as the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, and she was educated privately at home.

God save our Queen. Send her victorious, happy and glorious. Long to reign over us. God save the Queen. - Britgirl

Ahem! That's HRH QUEEN Elizabeth II, of Great Britain if you don't mind. And Her Majesty should be #1. Long live our Queen.

God save our gracious Queen, long live our noble Queen.

Longest reigning monarch. Pretty incredible

3 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.

Currently the greatest president of the United States of the 21st century! And no, it's not George W. Bush, since that guy started our war in Iraq and stuff, which also led to the rise of ISIS that America has to deal with today! Barack Obama ended America's war in Iraq, has been trying to give affordable healthcare for everyone, was the commander in-chief who had Osama bin Laden killed under his watch, pulled us out of the Bush deficit, started peaceful diplomatic relations for America with Cuba again since the Cuban Missile Crisis, and kept our country safe from nuclear weapons from Iran with a hard bargain (Iran being able to rebuild their army may be a bad thing, but at least it's in exchange for them not nuking and ending the world). I am typing this with all my soul as Barack Obama's second and final term will end this year in 2016. I'll miss you, Barack Obama.

Obama was probably one of the greatest people who ever lived.

He is very good I hope he can be the president forever

He is a wonderful president of all time!

4 Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States.

Hands down the best person ever! I really just cry whenever I think about him and his god damn cute smile. I really wish he would just marry me and we could live a happy life together on a island far away from these dumb libtards

Hey you there, Mr. "Trump's Evil". He's not evil. He has greatly contributed to helping America be Great Again, and he has not killed anyone. Obama and Clinton (Especially Hillary) are evil, not Trump.

Mentally unstable, full of character flaws, vengeful and angry, lies openly and repeatedly. Oh yeah, also the most powerful individual on the planet. Scared?...you should be.

I hate all people who think that the "USA president" Donald trump was better than Obama.Don't you people know how many innocent people Donald has killed,your evil if you like him.

5 Chuck Norris Carlos Ray "Chuck" Norris is an American martial artist, actor, film producer and screenwriter. He was born in March 10, 1940, in Ryan, OK. He is famous for mostly starring in western and action movies.

He is the man. It once was Bruce Lee and today is Carlos Norris.

6 Edward Snowden Edward Joseph Snowden is an American computer professional, former Central Intelligence Agency employee, and former contractor for the United States government who copied and leaked classified information from the National Security Agency in 2013 without authorization.

Because he stands for freedom and exposes corruption.

This man is single-handedly responsible for an entire pop culture phenomenon. For any young children growing up in the early 2000's, it's almost guaranteed that they watched spongebob. Tom Kenny literally changed the way of life of an entire generation of people. Everybody my age knows and can quote so much of spongebob, its ridiculous.
