  • Interesting question. I just bought LIFE Magazine's special book on 100 influential people in history. The editors didn't put positive or negative value...just "influential," working in several different categories.

    To put qualification on it..I"d love to say Jesus but for the atrocities that have too often been committed in His name. (The problem is never religion...it's religious followers.) Buddha...hmm. On a global perspective, that's a good possibility.

    But I think I'm going to choose the practical over the philosophic: Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippocrates

  • Although I don't feel he had done the most good I believe Martin Luther Kind Jr. has made the largest reaching good impact... There are not many human rights people who are remembered the way he has been...

  • That's really, really hard to say. I suppose it depends on who you're referring to them influencing. I'm going to name two, if that's okay..

    Jesus Christ and Siddhartha Gautama. I think that essentially, both taught kindness, and became leaders for others to do the same, though in different parts of the world. Both helped to instill important morals and values into an enormous population of people.
