Was a military genius managed to defeat one third of Rome's army while outnumbered in the battle of Cannae.
He never got to take control of the Roman Empire, but if you research about him, you'll realize how smart and cunning he was. He defeated several consuls using his knowledge on the typical Roman values, and using it to his advantage. Some of the situations he managed to outwit the Romans in... it's impressive. - lulufairy
He was very wise!
Advised lots of leaders and pretty much stopped a lot of wars.
He developed his own religion and influenced the lives of many people.
His beliefs are still in practice today. Very influential man. 186 is way too low for him.V 1 Comment
How is STEVE JOBS and a bunch of other guys who probably can't compare to Nathaniel Bowditch above him?
He got a degree from Harvard, without even going there! This list is all based on opinion, and no, no way in hell is Adolf Hitler the smartest man ever to live. I guess if Hitler is number 1, then every other emperor or ruler of every empire ever comes right behind him because they made a successful empire, right? Wrong.
He was the genius mathematician and astronomer who wrote 'The American Practical Navigator. ' He went to school for two years as a small child, but was taken out of school to be indentured at a ship chandelry, but at that ship chandelry he self-educated himself by doing things like studying math, astronomy, and even reading Newton's Principia. He knew many different language by comparing his English Bible with many other language translations of the Bible. He was so smart that Harvard awarded him a diploma- and he never even went to school there or anywhere.
Without him, so many lives of men at sea would be lost if not for his ocean navigation book which is still used a lot today.
He schooled himself and got a Harvard degree without going to Harvard! In my eyes he easily makes the top 20.
Became the wealthiest person in the world for many years now, without a college degree.. Scored 1590 out of 1600 in SAT.
Boil the milk before drinking it!
He measured the Earth to 2% accuracy. In 230 because. With a stick. He's a genius. Look at what he did. He measured the distance from the Earth to the sun and figured out the Earth's tilt. He was the curator of the library of Alexandria. He invented a formula to calculate prime numbers. He wrote history biography and poetry. Hell, he even criticized Aristotle for being a racist. In astronomy he made a star catalogue and invented the leap day. His peers called him Beta, because he was the second best in the world... In every field of study.
His nickname was Beta because he was the second best in everything except for calculating diameter and circumference of planets, which he was the best at.
He is so smart... He foung out the earth was a round sphere!

The inventor of differential calculus but it spread to Europe, from where the likes of Gottfried Wilhelm Von Liebniz, Isaac Newton and Robert Hooke raced with each other to translate, re-invent and market it in their own names, in a acrimonious manner.
The one who observed Gravitation at least 500 years before Newton... And Discovered the motion rules.. And discovered many thing... But the Britishers learned Sanskrit and translated in their language and the concepts were spread all over the world... Even the Einstein had read bhagvatgita
