222 Eratosthenes

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!

Why isn't he #1?

223 J.K. Rowling J.K. Rowling

The greatest author in the world.

J.K. Rowling is a very smart person, but not the smartest. Her books were INCREDIBLE, though. She has a very special gift: the fluent use of words. She can take words, and mix them together, creating beautifully illustrated pictures in your head. Her books have a very smart, strong, and loyal fanbase. It takes a lot of persuasion to get someone to believe in something so unbelievable, so magical...
