1. God
2. Jesus
3. Satan

No idea about the rest, don't feel like coming up with anything, but I'm pretty sure that those I mentioned have been very influential.

It's just that only one of them actually exists, and he's about equally influential with Muhammad.

Well if even one of them EXISTS (currently) then it certainly must mean that all of them exist.

I am tired of people putting up their life heroes etc. as the most influential people, or people who made big advances in some kind of science etc. Honestly, those people are NOT influential, because it is my life-heroes that are the influential ones, and they made advances in the important fields of kick ass muzak, and pure-awesomeness.

1. ACDC {separate they are useless, together, they cause your ears to have an orgasm and make you unbearably horny (for them) regardless of gender or sexual preferences (Bon ACDC is better, but both please me)}

2. William Murderface (If you don't know who he is, then you risk being deported to Mexico and getting anally raped by a huge Tijuanan she-man)

3. Jesus, cause he is my best friend, and if you insult him I will castrate you and then nail you to a huge lower-case t, (kind of a family tradition when we take the law into our hands)

4. Ozzy Osbourne, cause his music is awesome, and he ate a ******** bat. (I DON'T SEE ANYONE ELSE EATING MOTHERFUCKING BATS!!!)

5. I am in a stupor after thinking about all of these epic figures, so I must forfeit the dizzying power to bestow the 5th position to a person/persons/god of ____. I will allow you puny mortals to give me a recommendation as to who belongs up here, and if your answer pleases me I might decide to include it in my list, along with the granting of demi-godhood to whoever may provide said adequate god-person-s.

Bill Clinton. He taught the world that everyone cheats on their wife, even the president. He also took the economy of the united states to the highest point it ever was. However, Bush ruined it. We need Bill back.

This is an accurate depiction of ancient sieges.

Fail, his voice is too easily impersonated, and much of the uniqueness of him is gone.

Well if even one of them EXISTS (currently) then it certainly must mean that all of them exist. (1)

(1) Uuhmm... what? So the fact that Jesus was a man confirms that God and the Devil exist? Riiiight...

(2) Sooo... you're life heroes are influential, but other people's aren't? So, because they're influential to you, they're influential to everybody? I sure hope you're joking, and, by reading the following phrases, I'm inclined to believe that. Otherwise... :roll:

(3) Again, I assume you jest. If not, well, I suppose you'll find out people don't like this aggressions.

(4)  :shock: ?!? If you actually are a christian, I cannot begin to say in how many ways that is wrong.


Maybe the entire post is meant to be a joke. If so, my apologies. Ignore this post. It's just that it struck me as sincere. If not, I stand by my comments.

K, so that entire post was a joke, pretty obvious. I am an actual Christian, and there were some messages in there as well. I did mean that people shouldn't put their life heroes up, but I intended the post to be humorous so I said what would be a douche thing and said that they shouldn't put their heroes up because mine were the correct ones. What I really intended to get across was that your heroes may not have affected the world more than your non-heroes. Stalin is not one of my heroes, far from it in fact, yet I admit that he is on the list rather than Lech Walenca, who IS one of my heroes. I don't think an actual list coming from me is necessary, cause from my perspective it is pretty obvious as to what kind of people should be up there (I can't really decide on the order, but a few examples would be Alexander the Great, Stalin, Hitler, Julius Caesar etc.

Just because I am a Christian, it does not mean that I cannot find vulgar, ironic, and bloody and brutal humor humorous. It may be a sin, but no one is perfect, and the irony in the whole crucifying thing is pretty obvious.

Also the person that I quoted said -->EXISTS<--. That means that they currently exist, not that they ever -->EXISTED<-- which is the word he should have used, since i am almost completely sure he meant Jesus once existed. However if Jesus is to exist now then that would mean that he actually resurrected and God and Satan should exist currently as well since if Jesus actually resurrected according to him then he was actually the son of God and that means that Satan exists as well etc.

And lastly, yes it was intended to be a joke. Please take your instincts a bit more seriously next time, cause it did kind of ruin the spirit.

Galileo Galilei

Five most influential politically

In the west of Europe, definitely Julius Ceaser.  He layed down the path for all other Roman Emporers, and truly made The Roman Empire the most Powerful, influential, and overall Greatest ever.(Better then Alexanders by far.)  His legacy is definitely the most amazing ever.  He also made the Queen of Egypt his bitch, who ruled the most or second most powerful the at the time.  But seriously, at the height of the Roman Empire,(which Gaius layed the path for) it was indeed the most influential ever.  It had a massive affect on medieval Europe, which in turn Had a great affect on us in America and other parts of the worlds.  Science prospered and reached places that where never before possible.  And take a look at one of their bathhouses!  All of this from the influence of  Gaius Julius Ceaser.

1. Jesus Christ
I am a Christian, but even if I weren't, I would still claim that Jesus Christ is one of the most important historical figures of all time. Through Jesus and Christianity, the morality and philosophy of Judaism gained a wider following, and became an integral part of western civilization. Several concepts of morality, such as reciprocity (the Golden Rule), non-aggression, and forgiveness, are immensely influential to this day due to Jesus' teachings and the widespread adoption of Christianity in a setting where previously the naked exercise of power was all the justification one needed for his actions. Christianity remains the religion with the most followers at the present day, making Jesus influential for that alone.

2. Napoleon Bonaparte
This man conquered most of Europe and implemented influential reforms in France, the most important of which was the adoption of the Napoleonic Code. The Napoleonic Wars reshaped the political landscape of Europe. French armies exported French revolutionary ideals, while at the same time the first waves of nationalism in many places erupted as a response to French occupation. Some countries, such as Venice, were wiped from the map, while others, such as the Netherlands, ended up as a monarchy. The French occupation of Spain led to the revolt of the Spanish colonies in the Americas. The Napoleonic wars revolutionized warfare, and show the first instances of countries mobilizing all their resources and people for the war effort. The legal legacy of the Napoleonic code is extensive, as it is the basis for many countries' codes. The code compiled centuries of French legal tradition based on Roman and German law, and may very well be Napoleon's most important and lasting achievement.

3. Nicolaus Copernicus
Since ancient times, most people rightly believed the earth was a sphere. What they got wrong was the belief that the earth was at the center of the universe. In ancient and medieval times, most "science" was not based upon empirical observations, but on philosophy. Copernicus, as one of the early figures in the Scientific Revolution, used astronomical observations and mathematics in order to develop his theory of heliocentrism, which has since been corroborated, with minor adjustments, by later observations. Copernicus not only introduced a theory which changed a widely-held fundamental view of the universe, but he also heralded the rise of modern science, which is based on empirical evidence rather than on cloistered philosophy.

4. James Watt
As the inventor of a practical and efficient steam engine, James Watt is responsible for the device which brought about industrialization, and, as a result, made a higher-than-subsistence living possible for most people in the world. The steam engine was used to power trains, which dramatically lowered transportation costs for both people and resources, and also indirectly created the modern concept of standardized time. The steam engine contributed to vast increases in the output of manufactured goods and mined resources, making mass production possible.

5. Johannes Gutenberg
Prior to Gutenberg, books were extraordinarily expensive, and only affordable by a small segment of the population. Johannes Gutenberg's invention, the printing press, allowed books to be mass-produced, rendering them cheaper and available to more people. Due to Gutenberg, literacy ceased to become a luxury, and common people were able to communicate and receive ideas received in printed material. The success of the Protestant Reformation, for example, was in part to the quick spread of Protestant literature. So widespread were books after this that states and churches found it necessary to ban works which threatened their authority, actions that were rarely taken in earlier times.

1) Prometheus. I know he didn't actually exist, but whoever discovered fire should be in here, and I don't think anyone documented that.
2) Karl Marx.
3) Bismarck. The consequences of his actions can still be felt today.
4) Caesar. People sill cite him as a case of 'absolute power corrupts absolutely', and what he did still applies today.

Just as a consolation prize:
5) Lee Kuan Yew. I'm not sure if the bugger actually has a lot of clout, but all the damned history textbooks say roughly the same thing, and even independent books corroborate that. He did show the world what one can do with grit, determination and the ability to pick the right people.
“Pain or damage don’t end the world, or despair, or ******** beatings. The world ends when you’re dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man — and give some back.”

3. Kim Jong-il, if I remember correctly, he tied up a reporter and forced him to watch a movie with him. :lol:
