The mind is indeed one powerful weapon! It can manage to shape what will be happening in the future thanks to the possibility of discoveries and breakthroughs that may come along. Now, in this rundown; you’ll get to know who the Top 10 Smartest People in History are. Their discoveries and their various works have been responsible for various changes all across the globe; and also in various areas of knowledge as well. So, let’s take a look!
1. Albert Einstein
The first spot occupier is a very familiar face to many. He’s none other than the German-born theoretical physicist, Albert Einstein! He’s the one who created the theory of relativity and contributed greatly to the development of quantum mechanism and cosmology. He’s considered to be the greatest physicist around the 20th century. Aside from that, he’s a pretty good thinker and his theories are based on solid understanding where they’re filled with so much clarity. He’s not merely happy with statistical data by the way.

Second spot gets a real shocker and he’s none other Nikola Tesla. He’s one of the greatest minds that the world has ever seen and was able to conduct electrical experiments which are dated about nearly two centuries ago. In fact, these experiments are what scientists of today are having difficulty in replicating. Aside from Tesla’s powerful intellect, his empathy and concern for the betterment of human society is very much respected as he not seeks to make profit with his works but to improve living conditions of his generation and the future ones to come.
3. Leonardo Da Vinci

You would be surprised that Leonardo Da Vinci, aside from being a renowned artist is also one of the most brilliant minds in the world. Imagine this, in centuries ahead of time; he designed a tank, a diving suit and many other things that wouldn’t be invented until hundreds of years later on. This compendium contains 4000 pages of detailed notes about unexplored ideas and concepts which are eventually explored later on. That said compendium or compilation of ideas is considered to be his true mark of being a genius aside from being a very remarkable artist.
4. Galileo Galilei

Galileo Galilei was almost one of the most brilliant minds in the face of the planet throughout time. He was basically the founder of modern-day science and astronomy. Why is that so? Because he was the one who made improvements to the spyglass or the telescope allowing us to see the celestial bodies such as the stars, moon or even the planets right up closer than before!
5. Jesus Christ
The first man to do magic tricks that tricked many people for many years!M+376
It’s a miracle, not magic. He was and is God. Magic is an illusion. Miracles are not.M+9
There are none wiser than Jesus Christ.M+203
We have none of his writings, only the word of others, that doesn’t seem very smart.M+6
This list is a joke, all these scientist and artists were good but can’t compares with jesus, they didn’t bring good message and love in the world, hitler was simply a evil who wanted to kill people, and the others smarts but didn’t know enough, scientist know just 3% of the truel of the lifeM+60
Is isn’t a list of who brought a message of love to the world, this is a list of the smartest people in the world. – EGBrettM+10
He is very important
6. Sir Isaac Newton

It was all thanks to an apple that fell on his head for the fifth spot occupier. Sir Isaac Newton aside from being a very brilliant intellect was also a very curious mind. The incident where the apple fell on his head struck him with inspiration. He determined that the mathematics of his time isn’t enough to work on the nature of gravity hence he invented calculus. End result is that he quickly derived the law of universal graviton, law of cooling and many, many more especially the most famed, law of motion!
7. Stephen Hawking

The occupier of the sixth spot is handicapped yet has a very powerful mind! He’s none other than Stephen Hawking. You would be surprised that he’s capable of pursuing his intellectual goals while being actually physically handicapped! He proved that the singularity could possibly exist during the time when the Big Bang occurred. He has worked with black holes and even coined the term ‘Hawking Radiation”. His most famed or renowned book which is “A Brief History of Time” even gave laymen the idea of quantum and physics, and also the works of Einstein and various Ancient Greek philosophers.
8. Charles Darwin

If you believe in Evolution, then the seventh spot occupant is all about this. It’s none other than Charles Darwin. Thanks to this man, everything in the world makes more sense now since organisms from time to time would change and adapt to the ever-changing environment. As an end result, newer species would arise and those that cannot adapt will be facing its end. Simply, because of him we can truly appreciate how diverse and beautiful the life of Earth is, and understand where did it originated and how did it became what is now.
9. Michael Faraday

Up next in the list is Michael Faraday. He’s an English scientist who is surprisingly received little formal education. His works are responsible for advancing the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry and the precursor of the high-end technologies that we enjoy as of now. In testament to his brilliant mind, numerous scientific principles are actually named in honor of him such as Faraday’s law of induction, effect, cage, paradox wheel and wave are some to note of. His researches are the reason why later inventions in electricity and current were made possible.
10. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is a German poet, playwright, novelist, politician and diplomat. He’s renowned for some of his literary works such as the likes of the Sturm und Drang, The Sorrows of Young Werther, and Faust. He’s best regarded as a literary genius. He was also involved in some scientific studies such as the ones in the field of natural sciences.
11. Wilhelm Gottfried Leibnitz

Finally, we get to another German who is more of a philosopher and mathematician; he’s none other than Wilhelm Gottfried Leibnitz. He’s widely renowned to have contributed to further development of calculus that’s independent from Newton; also notably some of his works which are Law of Continuity and Transcendental Law of Homogeneity. He’s also prolific inventory in the field of mechanical calculators hence non-genius such as us common folks are capable of calculating complex math problems with the use of this device.
So there you have it, the list containing the Top 10 Smartest People in History. If ever you’re not familiar with them; then you might want to start browsing your library for these names and look for what they have contributed to society. Eventually, once you find out; you will be left at awe on their many works and know what legacy it brought to the people afterwards all thanks to the brilliance of their minds.
