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).

According To The Christian Bible, Jesus' purpose on Earth was redemption and salvation. While He was on Earth he healed the sick, brought the dead back to life, forgave sins, died on the cross for the world, and gave us a pathway to salvation. more.

One day Satan and Jesus were having a conversation.
Satan had just left the Garden of Eden, and was mocking and laughing
Saying:If Lord. Just seize the world full of people down there. They set a trap, used bait I knew they could not resist.
They fell all! What you do with them? Jesus asked.
Ah, I'm gonna have fun with them. Answered
Satan. Them teach how to marry and divorce, how to hate and
Abusing each other, to drink and smoking and of course, I will teach to invent guns and bombs to
Destroy each other. I really going to have fun! What will you do when you get tired of them? Jesus asked. Ah, the kill. Satan said with eyes full of hatred and pride. How much you want for them? Jesus asked.
Ah, you do not want those people. They do not
Are good. Why would you want to take. You take them and they hate you.
Spit your face, curse you and kill you. You do not want those people!
How much? Jesus asked again. Satan looked at Jesus and said ...more

Jesus Christ God IS...


Some of these people are legends part of religion and created things for us.If we didn't have those stuff he created them we would have the thing we have today!

This man, whether you believe him divine or not, was without a doubt the most legendary man of all time.

2 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 nonviolence and civil disobedience, inspired by his Christian beliefs and the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi.

He honestly deserves to be number one. He used nonviolent resistance to achieve equal rights for African Americans, won a Nobel Peace Prize, and is an inspiration to all of humankind.

He stood up for black rights (I'm white. But most white people still admire that nowadays) and he taught God's love for us, he said LGBTQ people needed therapy, but never said they deserve to die, and he carved a path in history for a new freedom. Absolute legend

Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the greatest people to walk the earth if not the greatest. Such a great orator with such great thoughts and just one aim... being able to see people of all races sit together on the table of brotherhood. It is upon us, the children of today, the adults of tomorrow to fulfill his great dream. Let us join our hands to make the world a better place to dwell in so that his soul may Rest In Peace. Let us look at each other as brothers and sisters. Let us do our part in the world... remembering that even the smallest person can make a huge difference and each one of us could be that one small person...

A beautiful human being who taught love, peace, equality, compassion, and non-violence.

The pioneer of the Civil Rights Movement that essentially became the death of the Jim Crow Segregation of the Confederate South, that had brutally oppressed, lynched, murdered, and persecuted blacks from the end of Reconstruction.

His "I have a dream" speech is immortal.

His teachings of God's love for all human beings and how we are all to treat each other as equals, human beings, and brothers is just so beautiful.

Had he not been assassinated, race relations in America could have been so much better

3 Muhammad Muhammad ibn Abdullah (570 AD - 632 AD) was an Arab religious, social, and political leader and the founder of the world religion of Islam. According to Islamic doctrine, he was a prophet, divinely inspired to preach and confirm the monotheistic teachings of Adam, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets. He is believed to be the Seal of the Prophets within Islam. Muhammad united Arabia into a single Muslim polity, with the Quran as well as his teachings and practices forming the basis of Islamic religious belief.

His enemies who did not accept his message and yet they trust him with their deposit, that he would give it back to them when asked. He was asked by Pagans Arabs to give up on message of Islam in return would make him the richest man in Mecca but he replied them, even if the offer is the sun on the right hand side and moon on the left hand he would not give up the message of Islam.

In New Testament he is recognized as The Spirit of the Truth and Old Testament he is recognized like one who would have characteristic of Moses.

Moses received the word of God at Mount Sinai, Mohamed received at Mount Era. Moses fled motherland, so did Mohamed. Moses won over his enemy and so did Mohamed. Moses married and had children and so did Mohamed. Moses was leader, warrior and statesman with authority and so was Mohamed. Moses had natural birth and death and so did Mohamed and many more similarities in them.

Muhammad was not simply a messenger and a prophet revered by Muslims. Moreover, he is a mercy for all of humanity, and his example is the only perfect one. His conduct with his followers and rejecters was exemplary, teaching humanity respect and tolerance. Children were given special attention and respect, and each one's potential was discovered and celebrated. He never discriminated based on race or disability, and the privilege of raising the call to prayer was given to a blind man and a black man.

His first wife was a widow fifteen years his senior, and every other woman he married after her death was either a widow or a divorcee, with the exception of Aisha, who married him with her own consent at an age that was neither frowned upon nor contrary to the customs of that era. Each of his marriages was a privilege and honor for the women and their respective families, and they honored and enjoyed this special relationship with Muhammad. His lifelong effort was to save every ...more

The greatest man who succeed to gather people on the good things for themselves and community and do our emission in the right way for satisfaction of god. He give up wealth and he reject to be a king and he accept to be a simple person, worshiping salve. His behaviour is a model and example to human kind which if we follow non gonna be poor and non gonna be sad. His solution for the economic problems it's the solutions for every time, and no doubt if the world apply it today they gonna resolve all these issues in a short amount of time. The constitution and human rights, law... That he bring us.

You don't believe it all what you can do is look for it. Thanks god now its easy to get the informations ...more

He is the last prophet god has sent to us and he is the most kind person..
Read his stories.. Read about what had he done for us.. And you will not find a greater person than prophet mohammed.. He learned us honesty.. He learned us not to kill the weak.. He learned us to show our best.. He learned us to do our work with our best.. And he give us warnings about what is going to destroy us... And he encouraged us to unite and live together in peace and happiness.. And my favorite story for prophet mohammed
That once a day the neighbor of prophet mohammed was a Jewish.. And he was against prophet mohammed.. And was throwing dirts and garbage in front of the house of prophet mohammed.. And that Jewish became ill.. Prophet mohammed gone to visit him and prayed for him to recover.. The jewish asked our prophet :-why do you wish me to recover and you come to visit me after I was throwing dirts on front of your house.. He told him :- that is islam is to forgive and be a better human ...more

4 Albert Einstein Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist, widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest and most influential physicists of all time. Einstein is best known for developing the theory of relativity, but he also made important contributions to the development of the theory of quantum mechanics. Relativity and quantum mechanics are together the two pillars of modern physics. His mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which arises from relativity theory, has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical more.

He created e=mc squared. He is such an intelligent person and he is the reason why kids learn a lot today. Thank you for your smartness!

He was a great man who perfected many of the raw ideas that Newton came up with. Without him, we would probably have never gone to the moon in 1969, nor made such advances in technology.

I don't know why michael jackson is n he list. I mean he is great but there are far better and greater persons than him. Pop stars like him come and go. He wont be remembered for more than 300 years and that too at the mst. But einstien, gandhi, newton and various others will live for more than thousands of years. They are immortal. And this list is not god at all. It is a pretty ignorant one.

God created the universe and sir Albert Einstein gave us a key to understand cosmos and mind of god. He is the greatest scientist the world has ever seen. He gave us the concept of space and time. Without him we cannot understand gravity. Sir Albert Einstein gave us a path to explore cosmos and ultimate to understand our own origin.

5 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was an American lawyer and statesman who served as the 16th president of the United States from 1861 until his assassination in 1865. Lincoln led the nation through the American Civil War and succeeded in preserving the Union, abolishing slavery, bolstering the federal government, and modernizing the U.S. economy. He married Mary Todd and they had four boys, only one of whom lived to maturity. In 1858 Lincoln ran against Stephen A. Douglas for Senator. He lost the election, but in debating with Douglas he gained a national reputation that won him the Republican nomination for President in 1860.

He freed the slaves. It's one thing to fight for yourself but to fight for others till your death is something greater.

I don't think I said enough in my last comment. I mean he is arguably the only human who can compare with prophets. He did the same as Moses (he freed the slaves) but he wasn't given powers by God like Moses was. He was just quite simply a man who disagreed with suffering and wanted to stop it - Unnamed Google User Remade

He is the one who has committed and has shown to, and has convinced the whole world that all men and women are created equal before God and have the same rights to live in this world which is created by the same God.

Arguably the best president ever. Only Washington can really compare. He was honest, humble, and soft spoken - not qualities you will find in any president today. He united the country at the peak of its division and he died for it.

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

The Man of the Century

It took one remarkable man to defeat the mighty British Empire and free a nation of 350 million people. His goal was freedom for India. His strategy was peace. His weapon was his humanity.

Gandhi is undisbutably the greatest living human of all time. He changed the world. Literally. Technology is superb, but Gandhi implemented a peaceful revolution that changed the way the population viewed the world. He gave an example of true freedom, a type of freedom that didn't need murder, killing, or even an offensive strategy. He valued true freedom (the freedom to accept the consequences of his actions), and life before anything else. He is a man that is worthy of anyone's respect.

Mahatma Gandhi was a truly ascetic man who gave up everything he had and even sacrificed his family life for his ideals. He fought injustice not just for his countrymen, but for all oppressed people of the world.

Nevertheless his fight for justice did not include harming the oppressors. He took the essence of every religion (not just Hinduism) and came up with the lofty weapons of 'Satyagraha' and 'Ahimsa', with which to bring around a mighty empire to reason.

The simple and straightforward common folk of India recognized this great man as the "Mahatma" and rallied around him to form the Nation that is today's India. He truly is the Father of the Indian Nation.

Firstly I would correct the statement " man of century". He is the "man of the millennium". His life is a role model for everyone. We often mix " how to act" with the ideals and bring down the value of ideals but he pulled up "how to act" to the standards of ideals and then made a homogenous solution of it.

7 Gautama Buddha Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, Shakyamuni Buddha, or simply the Buddha, after the title of Buddha, was an ascetic and sage, on whose teachings Buddhism was founded.

He is the Greatest Human to ever born..
Not to compare Buddha with any other being.

He never killed anyone. He even converted a Angulimala (a Bandit)
Who killed 999 peoples. Can you Imagine a person who killed 999 people got surrendered into the feet of Lord Buddha (Blessed one). So think of the
Moment when the Angulimala would have been surrendering under him..

His teachings spread peacefully unlike others like Muhammad.

He is perfect combination of Both Mind and Body that the world has ever produced.

Victory to Buddha... Victory to Buddhism.

Buddha taught us non violence, peace and love for all the creatures in the universe. He said a man who is born has to die one day. He did not believed in miracles and superstition. He taught us the scientific way of living.
We are blessed to have one such person and his given religion known to us.

The Buddha spread teachings of Love, Enlightenment and Peace to tens then hundreds then millions after that. He suffered for years to find the Way to Enlightenment, and had great Compassion to all Beings and Saw the Way of All Things.

He is the only, who has explained the humanity to its deepest that is too at about 2500 years ago, when all over the world everybody was dumb and brought only fake theory and sayings, which are still disputed and far away from reality. Buddha's saying and theories are as pure and real as it were 2500 years ago. All the peoples in this real world, who are intelligent, educated, free from prejudice, take only right decision after self consideration, follows buddha even though they may be attached to other religion by birth. Buddha is one and only, who is beyond a human thought.

8 Moses Moses is a prophet in Abrahamic religions. He is the Lawgiver of Judaism. God sent him to the Pharaoh in Egypt to tell him to release the children of Israel from bondage. When the Pharaoh disobeyed God, God sent 10 plagues. Finally, Pharaoh relented, and Moses led the children out of Israel (through the Red Sea, after God separated the waters), and led them through the wilderness for 40 years. God also gave Moses the Tablets of the Law to give to the children of Israel.

Moses peace be upon him

Moses was friends with Jesus. He should be at least #2. Are you saying that Martin Luther King is more important than Moses? He is the most important prophet in Judaism, and an important prophet in Christianity. He lived to be 120 years old. Can anyone now bet that?

First human to teach, preach equality of genders and downtrodden people of his times. The one who also dared to raise his voice against the injustice done, Also preached for oneness of ALMIGHTY.

Should be #1 based on principles of equality among men and women,
Equality of all races, color and creed.
Love for humanity.
Believe in honest living, share your earnings with community and constant rememberance of God.

9 Nelson Mandela Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (18 July 1918 – 5 December 2013) was a South African anti-apartheid activist who served as the first president of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the country's first black head of state and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid by fostering racial reconciliation. Ideologically an African nationalist and socialist, he served as the president of the African National Congress (ANC) party from 1991 to 1997.

This person came from being in prison for almost 30 years, and then became the president of South Africa. This person taught people that you must forgive to move on. HE has many more outstanding achievements, but overall, he should be in the top ten in my opinion.

He is the Jesus Christ of our time, South Africa is a one of the Greatest place to live in Because of of the sacrifice he made with his Life. He is the father of our rainbow nation. He is my living Icon. As I am writing this comment about him its his birthday but he has been in Hospital for the past 30 Days. I wish God can give him strength to wake up and come back to his beloved people of South Africa we not ready to let go of him not now. We love you Tata!

Nelson should be number one by a mile. He overcame apartheid (white supremacy) in South Africa single handedly, survived prison for almost thirty years, and became president of a white supremacist nation. He valued education over anything, and was a feminist. He taught people to love instead of hate. He is the best human being this world has ever seen.

He changed thousands if not millions of people lives. People choose gods and 'special people' in their top ten but they've not done much than have a good name and be in a big book. Nelson Mandela isn't faith he is fact and should be remembered for ever. Without him nobody knows what may have happened. Thank you Mr Mandela!

10 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.

I bet all the souls in the existence of all the humans that ever walked the earth, that without Isaac Newton, future evolution of technology would be impossible if he never existed. He is my role model and he has motivated most humans to try new stuff and not the usual stuff we would normally do, Gravity is the best friend of Dr. Newton. His theory of Gravity will help us invent Time Travel which is just ten years away from now (2018)
I will travel back to his time and tell how he's the hero of humanity.

Sir Isaac Newton is best known for discovering the law of gravity, creating the field of calculus, and finding out that white light is composed of many colors. He is also really known for inventing three standard laws of motion, referred to as "Newton's Laws". Who are those stupid people who think Bruce Lee has been more influental that Sir Isaac Newton? We are all Newtonians!

It is a disgrace to Sir Isaac Newton, not to give him the top position in this list. He is, in all sense, the greatest man ever to walk the Earth. Without him, we wouldn't even have had automobiles, let alone satellites, internet and other facilities of the 'modern world'. He made this 'modern world'.

Sir Isaac Newton was a great man who made revolutionary discoveries. Too many people on here are from religions, and it's very biased. I'm sure I'll get hate but we do not know for sure that Jesus, Muhammad, or Buddha existed so we should vote for people who we do know existed.

11 Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (April 15, 1452 - May 2, 1519) 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, and cartography.

Leonardo da Vinci is the greatest polymath genius the world has ever produced. "Greatest" doesn't mean most influential so I have not in included the likes of Jesus Christ who are largely fictitious or a matter of faith. Leonardo is a one off who besides being arguably the greatest painter who ever lived, was interested in and excelled at literally almost everything, from science, art, sports, entertaining, healthy diet, engineering, music, philosophy, economics,... the list goes on, and we will probably never see his like again.

Are you kidding me, placing religious and probably imaginary figures over brightest minds of all time? , we owe people like the Vinci so much. Modern technology, quality of life increase etc. While religion was opposed to science and equality. If god existed, he would have been disappointed about the amount of dumb people he/she had created.

He was great at everything that he chose to do. A true example to others in many topics.

Also on another note, why are there so many Indians on this list? No offense (I'm a quarter Indian myself) it's just improbable that everyone great was Indian. I think that a lot of Indians probably went on this list. Don't get me wrong though, those people are still great

One of the greatest minds this planet has ever seen. Mathematics, technology, art... There was nothing this man could not become an expert in. No one else is considered synonymous with the renaissance and the birth of modern science and culture than the Vinci!

12 Michael Jackson Michael Jackson (Michael Joseph Jackson; August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) was an American singer, dancer, and songwriter. He passed away from cardiac arrest caused by a propofol and benzodiazepine overdose on June 25, 2009. He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or under the initials MJ. Dubbed the King of Pop, he is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century. more.

Who's this "Abraham Lincoln" guy everybody keeps talking about? Could he moonwalk? probably not. Could he say "HEEEHEEE" so loud the Soviet Union collapsed? I don't know. Have you ever realized the Soviet Union collapsed right after Michael Jackson became famous? Coincidence? I don't know, ask a historian or something. But this man could moonwalk. He could release some of the best albums ever. He could get so much plastic surgery he was unrecognizable. Nobody else on this list can do any of those things. Take that everybody. This man should be number 1.

One of the nicest, kindest celebrities of all time. But also unorthodox and naive, so much that he was victim of extortion attempts. Still, what Michael should be remembered for, appart from his musical genius, is the fact that he was always there to help others, giving to charity and trying to raise awareness of social issues.

People don't know him truly. They still think he was a freak and a pedophile, but he is not! He should be on the top of this list after Jesus Christ and the Holy Mother Maria. Michael jackson was one of the best humanitarians. He is not only known for being "the king of pop", come on, he is more than it! Before judging him try hard to love him! Who don't believe me have to do searches and get informed about whole his life. He was one of the greatest person. I love and miss him so much. He is an angel, his heart is so big. He hated violence and fighting. All he wanted was unity and peace. He wanted to heal the world. Go to listen all his amazing songs for understanding what I mean.

He is a great dancer and singer. He is the reasonwhy moonwalk is such a blast in TikTok and Youtube Shorts. His songs still remain in everyone's hearts.

13 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 fluorescent bulbs in his lab some 40 years before industry “invented” them. Nikola Tesla had perhaps thousands of other ideas and inventions that remain unreleased.

Seriously guys, come ON. Nikola Tesla was tricked by Edison so he isn't as famous as him, but this person is truly a genius. Can you imagine what the world will be like without him? I really agree with people who support him, he's just the inventor of modern technology! Just please, do even a little bit of research...then you can truly understand what a genius of a man he is. He should be in top 5 and a runner up to Da Vinci. Seriously guys, this person deserves more fame.

Come on, who has so much ignorance and put Bill Gates and many others over Nikola Tesla! That is insane! Nikola Tesla must be in top 10! He has invented the radio (yes, Nikola Tesla, not Guglielmo Marconi! ), alternating current, wireless current transmission if the wealthy people where not the same as they are now, we would have long time ago free energy! FREE ENERGY! The idea of electric cars = Nikola Tesla! Please, research a little more about him, there are lot of things to learn about him, and all the stuff what he has done. And he has done LOOT of them! LOT! I can not emphasis that enough!

A humble man who chose to remain this way. This human being died poor despite being potentially the smartedt man alive. A true BORN genius. He is the closest thing humanity has seen (so far) to the "superbrain". He was willing to share his ideas without the need to be credited or a desire to profit from. We've witnessed what's possible when the two hemispheres of the brain seemed to be in sync and working together in harmony. His inventions were created by merging his mathematical genius with his imagination and spiritual abilities. He gave us powerfully incredible (OR) potentially dangrous CODES. Think 'The Matrix' was just a Sci-fi movie? Maybe not..

A man I view as a true Genius A man who thought so far and moved so far in such a short time it's hard to ignore his achievements. He created the system of Power we use to this day and created inventions far ahead of his time. He Had dreams of Improving the world Profits be damned. Of course his plans for world improvement for all made investors leave making his visions of free energy for all people to be forgotten. The World Is truly duller with his loss.

14 Mother Teresa Mother Teresa (26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997), also known as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, was an Albanian-Indian Roman Catholic nun and missionary. Although her passport name was Mary Teresa Bojaxhiu, she was born Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, in Üsküb—now Skopje, capital of North Macedonia. After living in Skopje for eighteen years, she moved to Ireland and then to India, where she lived for most of her life. On September 5th, 2016, Pope Francis Canonized Mother Teresa, making her St. Teresa of Calcutta.

She is a great lady who is very kind towards poor. She serves the society as it is her family. We should learn more from her. She is my inspiration always. She believed that service to poor is service to god. Thus she became the mother of country because of her love, care and kindness towards the people.

She was an excellent embezzler for the church who cared more about converting people than she did for their lives. She pushed church propaganda while forcing religion on the poor and sick who she watched die without allowing them any form of medicine not even pain medication, she raised mounds of money to assist the poor which she used travel and even for her own health care while letting the people in her care suffer as they slowly died while having Christians try to brainwash them with the Christian faith. Inhumane yes, but not a hypocrite because she even admitted she only cared about converting people and not about helping them.

We are hundred percent sure about her existence. Although Jesus Christ made a lot of hero- like accomplishment, he still might be legendary

She was a remarkable woman.

15 Ashoka

He was the great king ever born in India. It was very difficult for any other king or emperor to defeat him. He won many kingdoms and become the mightiest king. But after the world of Kalinga when he SAM humorous dead. Bodies lying motionless on the battlefield he was deeply moved. He penetrated for the bloodshed he caused and realized that it is not the thing he wants to win in his life, and he was greatly influenced by the principles of lord Buddha and started from that very moment preaching the thoughts of peace, non violence, fraternity, love and pity. He was the great follower of Buddhist principles and dedicated rest of his life preaching the message of Buddhism to entire world. He gave his daughter and son for the sake of preaching and speeding Buddhism all over the world.

Ashoka become great when he left the path of war and choose peace after adopting Buddhism. He remarkably worked for the betterment of people.

He represents all other power hungry kings and emperors and Politicians. He was one of them. But after the Kalinga war he introspected he contemplated and transformed and evolved into a better Human Being who later on took care of his people like his own children. He embraced Buddhism and preached non-violence and universal brotherhood . His contribution of the Ashoka Chakra to Indian flag and his symbol of 4 lions is great but I think is positive transformation is an example for even todays politicians.

I do not know if it is written in Muslim religion but he was a very cruel king who had killed thousands of people but one day while he was sleeping he saw someone and then understood he was real. He told him what he was doing was really unfair and in it's fear he stopped all his war. When he described artists his face he looked exactly like Jesus Christ. I am calling him great because he was a really bad person but when he saw a strange power he became good.

16 Karl Marx Karl Heinrich Marx ( 5 May 1818 – 14 March 1883) was a German philosopher, critic of political economy, economist, historian, sociologist, political theorist, journalist and socialist revolutionary. His best-known titles are the 1848 pamphlet The Communist Manifesto and the four-volume Das Kapital (1867–1883). Marx's political and philosophical thought had enormous influence on subsequent intellectual, economic, and political history. His name has been used as an adjective, a noun, and a school of social theory.

Karl Marx was more than just the creator of Communism, but a political philosopher, sociologist and scholar. Maybe in a Victorian manner, some finer details were looked over in his work, but ultimately he was an agent of change in the world, striving for equality and an end to monarchism and religious dogma and oppression. Not what I would call the greatest man in the world, but he is certainly the greatest on this list.

Karl Marx invented socialism! He was one of the greatest philosopher of all time, maybe as great as Jesus! We can agree or disagree with his ideology, but we have to mind that he was one of the most influencial people in the history of humanity! He changed the world forever, his influence is visible even nowadays!

He envisaged decades ago the final destination of mankind, I.e., Socialism, which was proved in practice by Lenin through November revolution in 1917. He is even more relevant today when capitalism is mired in deep crisis & exploited humanity is waiting for the onward march of socialism.

He is one of the finest brains born on earth and devoted is intelligence to the emancipation of mankind, unlike others, who exploit human beings. Once again, one day, people will realise that only his philosophy will help humankind and stop exploitation of man by man.

17 Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II (born August 4, 1961) is an American politician who served as the 44th president of the United States from 2009 to 2017. He was the first African-American president of the United States. A member of the Democratic Party, he previously served as a U.S. senator from Illinois from 2005 to 2008 and as an Illinois state senator from 1997 to 2004.

Part of the problem during all of Obama's presidency has been the lazy media in the U.S. there have gotten to be two sets of facts: the real facts and the Fox News, or conservative, twist on the facts. For example, There is still a size able portion of America that believes Obama was born in Kenya, even though he has produced a rock solid birth certificate from Hawaii. Meanwhile Ted Cruz, who WAS born in Canada, is allowed to run with no questions asked. Also, Donald Trump is saying the new Iran nuclear arms deal means Iran will get nuclear weapons, when the exact opposite is true. Republicans are referring to this as "Obama's deal" and our lazy media is going right along with them, even though there are six other countries involved. The media never mentions that England, France, Germany, Russia, China, and India are also on board to enforce this deal, as if having allies doesn't matter. There are the facts, and there are the Fox News facts, and the lame stream media treats them with ...more

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but don't lie and say you voted for him. Of the eighteen people who approved the comment "voting for him was the worst mistake I ever made" I will bet at least 15 of you voted for Romney or didn't vote at all. If you're saying you regret voting for Obama, you're saying that Romney would have been better. Romney was a terrible candidate and would've been a much worse president. His own party realized this, and asked him to stay out of the race in 2016. With the racial hatred he's had to put up with, not to mention a hostile media and Congress, it's amazing he's got as much done as he has.

Don't call me racist but Obama is the biggest mockery of a US president in history. First of all, his health care bill hurt more than it helped, pushed our Asian allies away, negotiated trade deals that hurt us. He let other countries take advantage stage of us. The idiots on CNN, ABC, NBC and CBS are just a bunch of dummies who think Obama was the best because he was nice. He might be nice on the outside, but on the inside, he is a typical greedy liberal who is an attention hugger, especially at John McCain's funeral where he went on about himself and can't control this country. He is not the worst person ever, but definitely not a good one or a good one either. That is just my opinion. Call me racist all you want, you people know I am right.

Greatest President who got as much done as any President has done for America. He is intelligent, generous, passion and accept all the ungrateful and racist criticize towards him. He had to continue the stupid war left behind from the previous president who did not know how to win beside leaving a big hole in deficit that would almost collapsed the whole America. He finally get rid of Osama Bin Ladin, that save US and almost terminated Al Quadae. He had improved the US healthcare that aimed to help the poor but the Insurance companies had tried everything to boycott in order to protect heir pocket that they made billion dollars every year. He unified all allies and avoided the war as much as possible. Using sanction and pressure against Putin, the most dangerous guy who want to invade into every country. So many things happen to the world (Greece deficit, Syria war) that affect our stock market, and of course he got blamed for not being able to lift our economy higher...Yeah right, ...more

I don't see how people dislike these comments, Michael Jackson shouldn't be above him. This man was a computer and technology genius, sure he had a bad rep with his temper but he was very serious about his work and didn't let others tell him his visions were impossible, he was not afraid to say what he thought and put his visions to work. He should always be remembered as one of
The greatest men who ever lived.

He was the greatest leader, there would not have been revolution in computer, mobile, music industry, animation. He was one step ahead of all people in our time

He invented the culture of challenging boundaries, brought Camera in everybody's hand which created so much happiness in everybody's lives.

The first high-school dropout to be able to invent colored computers and run a major corporation without the slightest sweat.

19 Mary, Mother of Jesus

She Created the best Person ever Why isn't she at Least like 2nd Or Third makes now Sense and plus I'm Kinda voting for her Just because Michael Jackson is IN FRONT OF HER like how?

Shes the best of the best! Y'know I really like her. people don't give her enough credit tho. Being a mother at the age of 12-16 and still capable of raising & caring after Jesus. Shes the only person that was Jesus at his birth and his death no other people been w Jesus for THAT long! Yea sure Jesus calls her 'woman' but lets be real here, Jesus' first word ain't woman, its either mom or dad.

He is alive, and Allah had given multiple miracles, ill mention some of his Miracles, as he use to make Dead alive, gave vision to the Blind to see, removed the hunch of the hunch back, Legs to the Lame.
He taught the people to follow the path of Allah. He said he was sent by Allah to preach the people to live in harmony instead of barbarians.

Hail Mary full of Grace the Lord is with you, blessed are you amongst women and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Jyotirao phule is the real mahatma as his sacrifice for the society. He has done such tremendous and very very difficult work in odd situations. Today whatever we sees development in education in all ranks is only possible due to jyotirao phule.

21 Abraham Abraham, originally Abram, is the first of the three biblical patriarchs. His story, told in chapters 11 through 25 of the Book of Genesis, plays a prominent role as an example of faith in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. According to the bible, God called upon him and told him 'through your son, Isaac, will come a great nation.' He was given a son at the age of 100. One day, God spoke to him and told him to sacrifice his son. Of course, Abraham was willing and brought his son up to a mountain. He then bound his son by his hands and feet and placed him on the alter. He was about to kill his son, when God stopped him by saying that there is a "ram caught in a thicket by his horns" and that he more.

Accepted as the founder of the traditions of Jews Christians and Muslims among others.

The prophet which all three monotheistic faiths believe in and one of the best prophets.

One of the most important prophet of his time.

One of Allah's prophet who is unharmed by fire.

22 Guru Gobind Singh Guru Gobind Singh; born Gobind Rai, was the 10th Sikh Guru, a spiritual master, warrior, poet and philosopher.

He is the greatest Guru and King that Humanity can have. He sacrificed his own Sons for the sake of humanity. He is the saviour of religion against evil practices, injustice and is only personality in the world to achieve such feats within a very short span of life. He instilled great power in common men and women who further fought against the injustice existing in the society and helped the poor and down-trodden to lead life without fear. He is the greatest of all!

An individual who proved it to the world what is the meaning of love for humanity by sacrificing 52 members of his family including his 4 sons and parents to save another religion.
His moral rectitude was so exemplary that when he was questioned as to why did he entice Gul Khan to stab him he said that he didn't want history to imply that he was not a martyr because innumerable men, women, children and relatives had sacrificed their lives in the battlefield on his words.
A poet, a messenger of God, a social reformer and worker, a soldier, a saint, a martyr and above all the man who knew past, present and future whose age was only 42.
Inexplicably gargantuan personality.

The Last of the Sikh Gurus in Human form, who changed the destiny of India, from being subservient to the tyrannical Islamic rulers and gave the ordinary citizen the will to stand and fight for their rights and demand and obtain self rule. Sadly that time has come again for the public to unite together and get rid of the corrupt governments and the police States on this earth, who have established themselves under guise of democracy and the apathy of the masses. They "you will get the management you deserve". How true it seems right now. Just look around at the world today and see the injustices in nations, in religion, in families, in law, how the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
May we learn from the Covid-19 and all unite and stand together to ensure the survival of humankind and of our earth.

Great, companionate, fair, inclusive, brave, ruler of great significance for the rights and freedoms of personal choice, promoted equality of women. Amazing, charismatic, genuine personality. Created a race of fearless warriors to protect the downtrodden. Advocated for compassion. Said it is cowardly to stand by and watch injustice or crime taking place. He who watches and does not stand up
for the poor, powerless people is himself a coward. Promoted nature and respect for all. Greatest leader with a vision for the future. Fear no one, believe in yourself. As a woman I admire a man of courage, respect and equality of all human beings regardless of gender, caste, color or Creed as he promoted.

He played a very important role thru his company to make personal computing possible for everyone, thus making learning process of computer hardware/software technology much easier and affordable for every one and at the same time made computing at enterprise level much more affordable and so created millions of jobs & opportunities. He is one of those rare people in the world who helped create jobs and helped train people for those jobs at the same time.

He is also the most generous philanthropist on this planet.

He has saved millions of lives by investing $28 billion in providing a hand up to the peoples of the developing world. Because of him over 6 million lives have saved through improved health, nutrition, sanitation and quality of life.

Its because of him that the world has eased itself into computing so well... Windows is a world changing product... Also he donates a lot every year and gives back to the society through his foundation... So he is the best human being for me

Great humanbeing of all times for the jobs he created for mankind and brought us close to finger tips by the technology he put forth. Lastly for the unmatched charity he made. Thus setting an example and inspiration to the world.

24 George Washington George Washington (February 22, 1732– December 14, 1799) was an American military officer, statesman, and Founding Father who served as the first president of the United States from 1789 to 1797. Appointed by the Continental Congress as commander of the Continental Army, Washington led the Patriot forces to victory in the American Revolutionary War and served as the president of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, which created the Constitution of the United States and the American federal government. Washington has been called the "Father of the Nation" for his manifold leadership in the formative days of the country.

I believe this statement to be absolutely true and more. He could have been Emperor. At the head of the army at the end of the war. Grabbing power as almost all had in that same position. Again and most importantly he stepped down from presidency at the end of his terms. setting the example that all have since followed. The stability and legitimacy that example gave to the office of president set the standard till today.

No government of the people, by the people, or for the people would have been possible without him. He could have opted for greater glory instead of resigning his command and returning to his farmm as just another citizen. Would any person have acted in that manner? There was no historical precedent for such an act. This was a seminal moment for the planet.

The Founder of the U.S.A. & a Bad-A$$! George Washington was an amazing man who should be remembered around the world, he was a True Warrior and a man who was willing to die for Freedom!

The wisest, most. selfless, greatest visionary of all our founding fathers. He is also our greatest American president. We have had more than a few. He is my favorite, followed by Lincoln and Reagan.

"Arise! Awake! And Stop not till the goal is reached". The man who is the real hero of India.

Best for this discipline over women.

Swami Vivekananda was a Hindu monk from India. He played significant role in the growing Indian nationalism of the 19th and 20th century, reinterpreting and harmonising certain aspects of Hinduism. His teachings and philosophy applied this reinterpretation to various aspects of education, faith, character building as well as social issues pertaining to India, and was also instrumental in introducing Yoga to the west.

According to Vivekananda a country's future depends on its people, stating that "man-making is my mission."
