Charles Darwin. Not only left out of the number one slot for obvious PCness, but actually left off the list altogether. Polls of REAL scientist always put him at or near the top.
Any list without Gauss is no list at all
Hey refer BBC. The top scientist of all time is Charles Darwin. In 2005 a pole taken from all the world scientists. They all voted for Darwin only. I saw this documentary... Here is the list...1. Darwin2. Einstein (E = m*C*C) 3. Einstein (Theory of relativity)4. Mendeleev (Periodic tables)5. Copernicus (Found the position of earth)6. Gregor Mendel (Genetics)7. Louis Pasteur (Germ theory)8. Fleming (Penicillin)9. Leeuwenhoek (Microorganisms)10. Newton
THE PERSON WHO WROTE THIS FORGOT ABOUT THE UTENSILS HE USE IN HIS KITCHEN .INVENTOR ALUMINIUM.CHARLES MARTIN HALL
Every scientist is great because every scientist has given something to us. We can't make a list of top 10
You all need to learn how to read and study History. Who created the scientific method? wrote THE analysis of optics? the founder of experimental psychology? described the finite speed of light and did it all in the 11th century -- ALHAZEN (Al-Haytham) One of many Islamic Scientist who europeans stole from. How abou the father of both modern medicine and geology - AVICENNA -
I agree that Darwin should be up there but to imply that Einstein, Newton, and Pasteur are not REAL scientist... i dont know what to say..
i do not belive in this top 10 scientist list.What about the father of chemistry jabar bin hayan and ibn-ul haithem the master of optics & eyes.
hey guys!! i can't beleive wat hav happened to all of youdefinitely i think that sir issac newton is the gretest of all scientists followed by einstein!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!we can't even imagine the whole world without their contributions!yes,i agree all are great but newton is the father of our modern science!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!nbody can neglect this universal truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i think that there not the top ten
I am surprised that Arab scientists do not top this list? Most of the European scientists mentioned on your list acquired much of their information and knowledge originally from discoveries and breakthroughs of Arab scientists.
All the scientists are great .You cannot choose 10 great scientists of all time. Instead why don't you just choose the scientists on the basis of their field in which they contributed. Like 10 great scientists in mathematics, 10 great scientists in physics etc.Because each scientist was talented in a different way .The field he may have contributed may be different. So we shouldn’t ignore anyone. 'The top 10 scientists of all time' always creates controversies (refer other articles on the internet). People who like a particular field try to promote the greatest scientists in that field.Also we could not just select 10 great persons from a list of millions of scientists. We should also consider the fact that technology like today wasn't available during ancient time. Who invented the wheel, fire? They are interesting questions to ask and we may not find an answer. I am not saying that the man who invented the wheel or fire can be included in the top 10 list, what I try to say is that everyone is great.
cannot understand at all why Darwin is not only in the top 3 but even in the list. Just rediculous.
I guess the right word would be "discoverer than inventor". I guess the French Chemist and Tax Collector Lavoisier should not be forgotten. Same is True with Glenn Seaborg, Michael Faraday, Alfred Nobel, Henri Becquerel, Wilhelm Roentgen, Joseph Lister, Alexander Fleming, Gregor Mendel, Marie and Pierre Curie, Galilei, Copernicus and even the Greeks like the Father of Biology Aristotle. Democritus of Abdera also made a significant contribution in the development of our concept on the composition of matter. So many scientists deserves the recognition, but i personally, like Albert Einstein to be on the top list.
IF SOME ONE LEAVE OUT Al-Beruni he needs to learn the spelling of SAEEENCE

greatest scientists of all time1.aryabhata2.bhaskara3.brahmagupta4.budhayana5.charaka6.sushruta
1. Carl Friedrich Gauss2. David Hilbert3. Omar Khayyam4. James H. Curry (contemporary applied mathematician)5. Grigory Perelman (contemporary)Some greatest physicists of all time are:1. Alhazen (i.e: The First Scientist)2. Isaac Newton3. Galileo GalileiSome contemporaries would be:1. Albert Einstein2. Niles Bohr3. Abdus Salam4. Hideki YukawaDarwin is not a scientist in the same sense as the others are, so he has no place on this list. Would Edison qualify for this list? ~~
Well how smart to leave the greatest scientist the world has probably ever know:Abū Rayḥān Muḥammad ibn Aḥmad Bīrūnī (Persian: ابوریحان محمد بن احمد بیرونی), often known as Alberuni, Al Beruni or variants, (born 5 September 973 in Kath, Khwarezm (now in Uzbekistan), died 13 December 1048 in Ghazni, today's Afghanistan) was a Persian scholar and polymath of the 11th century.He was a scientist and physicist, an anthropologist and comparative sociologist, an astronomer and chemist, a critic of alchemy and astrology, an encyclopedist and historian, a geographer and traveler, a geodesist and geologist, a mathematician, a pharmacist and psychologist, an Islamic philosopher and theologian, and an scholar and teacher.He was the first Muslim scholar to study India and the Brahminical tradition,and has been described as the founder of Indology, the father of geodesy, and "the first anthropologist". He was also one of the earliest leading exponents of the experimental scientific method, and was responsible for introducing the experimental method into mechanics and mineralogy, a pioneer of comparative sociology and experimental psychology, and the first to conduct elaborate experiments related to astronomical phenomena.George Sarton, the father of the history of science, described Biruni as "one of the very greatest scientists of Islam, and, all considered, one of the greatest of all times." A. I. Sabra described Biruni as "one of the great scientific minds in all history."The crater Al-Biruni on the Moon is named after him. Tashkent Technical University (formerly Tashkent Polytechnic Institute) is also named after Abu Rayhan al-Biruni and a university founded by Ahmad Shah Massoud in Kapisa is named after him.
Dont forget the greatest ever:Abū Rayḥān Muḥammad ibn Aḥmad Bīrūnī (Persian: ابوریحان محمد بن احمد بیرونی), often known as Alberuni, Al Beruni or variants, (born 5 September 973 in Kath, Khwarezm (now in Uzbekistan), died 13 December 1048 in Ghazni, today's Afghanistan) was a Persian scholar and polymath of the 11th century.He was a scientist and physicist, an anthropologist and comparative sociologist, an astronomer and chemist, a critic of alchemy and astrology, an encyclopedist and historian, a geographer and traveler, a geodesist and geologist, a mathematician, a pharmacist and psychologist, an Islamic philosopher and theologian, and an scholar and teacher.He was the first Muslim scholar to study India and the Brahminical tradition,and has been described as the founder of Indology, the father of geodesy, and "the first anthropologist".

Tesla?!?!Is this a popularity contest or a measure of ten best scientists?Newton shouldn't even make the list seeing as he wasn't a scientist...
this should be called top 10 greatest European scientists of all time. i cant believe that everyone on this list is European. Europeans were living in the dark ages until the renaissance.
Sir Isaac Newton stood number 1 Spot.foolowed by Albert Einstein and others.Don't forget everybody in the universe aware of these 2 names very well.May be if you tell any other name then you will not get positive reply from others.So my point of view Sir Isaac Newton is greatest scientist and most influential person.
Ahhh, did everyone forget Niels Bohr?
Why would Darwin be on this list? All Darwin did was figure out the same thing other scientist did with natural selection and evolution.Newton is the greatest scientist of all time having single-highhandedly invented Calculus and coming up with most of classical (Newtonian) physics.Faraday should come in second for his contributions with electromagnetism that changed science and technology forever. Relativity is based off Faraday's work.Einstein shouldn't be on the top of the list. He's accomplished no more than Planck, Bohr, Maxwell, or any of the great scientists during that era. He also copied special relativity from Lorentz. Lorentz is really never given credit for anything.James Watson is a liberal atheist racist plagiarizer. New research indicates that Rosalind Franklin had described the double helix structure of DNA before Watson or Crick in her notes. She was not given credit for being a woman and Crick-Watson stole from her.
How can you say that Faraday is a better scientist than einstein.!!!!!!!Just read the theories published by einstein. HE IS THE GREATEST.And don't be anonymous
hey ther's no thomas edison the 1400 invention and electricity introducing that make us comfort.no air conditioner if no edison no electric gadget.
What about AlHazen ?
WHAT BOUT TESLA?!?!?!?!?!?!wtf, guys, are you all in middle school??newton????? wahahahaa
There are large numbers of scientists but as there is always an exceptions Sir Isaac Newton is Number 1 scientist in the world ever and also the most influential person.
What about Max Planck, Gauss, and Faraday, Archamedes?!Also, some "smart guy" said Newton wasn't a scientist!
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXGUYS...THERE IS NO LIST IN THE WORLD THAT CAN BE SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE OF US......SO DONT MAKE ROOD REMARKS
Where is Tesla in this list? 700 patents.... father of AC, robotics, HAARP, and i don't know what all he developed.... his vision of providing free energy and hence introducing "Zero Point Energy" to worl can't be ignored. He was genious of his kind and his thinking level was atleast 100 yrs ahead of his time. Remember Tesla is the father of Radio and not Marconi. AC belongs to Tesla not Edison. Most of his achievement were either not publizied or others recognized as doing that work. Many of his inventions are still not know as it is hided by US govt. from public.
Satyendra Nath Bose. This list could get very long!
Archimedes, Aristotle, Pythagoras,Euclid oh come on, Leonardo Da Vinci, Newton, and Darwin and of course Gallelieo the father of science. none of the other scientists named have made as great a historical contribution as these men. The arabic/islamic scientists should be recognised as should be the work of recent men like Eddison, Tesla, Einstein and Bohr but and it is a mammoth but, the work of these earlier men was the shoulders of giants the recent men climbed up on.
What about Nikola Tesla? In my opinion, he was one of the best.
No Nikola Tesla on this stupid list is HUGE mistake. Another stupid step is puting Steven Hawking!
There is no dr. Abdus Salam in this list but why
Darwin should be removed from the list. Charles Darwin himself finally recognized that his theory is totally wrong. Time will tell that his theory is not only wrong but absolutely useless. Compare to James Clerk Maxwell and Michael Faraday whose works are really useful in our life today.
Hey guys, i think u forgot the rule" like dissolve like".means a person who is a scientist can only tell about another scientist, we can't..But as i learn about the history of many scientist and there contribution, the most influential and powerful groundworker, that make me a junior scientist from a student r:-1.SIR NEWTON2.FARADAY3.EINSTEIN4.MAXWELL5.GALILEO6.ARCHEMEDIS7.TESLA8.EDISON9.BOHR10.COPERNICUSenistein paste pics of newton , faraday, and maxwell on his study wall.in 2005 at royal institute it was found that newton was a most influential in history of science. And yes, Darwin was not a scientist, whose contributions are used only in evolution in human life, he tell bout over past, but above scientists makes over future.u can check the internet and then tell me about this.
I think Marie Curie and Aristototole no way deserve to be on that list. aristotole was a polymath whose all theologies regarding astrophysics later turned out to be wrong. his philosophical thoughs were hired by Christian churches for 3000 years which all proved to be wrong. Marie Curie mostly did her work with her husband.and also her work was not that revolutionary like other geniuses in that list. what about science polymath like al beruni and j.c bose and obviously Tesla and maxwell.remember al beruni set up the basis of modern science.jc bose single handed ly working with no good equipments invented the cohere and thus the inventor of wireless telegraphy.he is also the father vof radio physics. and in field of biology he created two device through which he first experimentally proved that plant has life an d also made some inter-related theologies about non living matter and living matter-and definitely was 60 years ahed of his time as said by 1977 noble prize winner in physics. and also richard feynman and darwin should be considered.
guy....nobody can debate that sir isaac newton is the best.....he created all the theory motion and the brunch of mathematic calculus, which is used everywhere......sir isaac is the best
Why u r not including Niels Bohr ?
i think that the list should contain the great scientists like issac newton ,aryabhatta,albert einstein,bhaskara etc. but there are so many scientists in the world who gave us so many things so we cant make a list of top ten scientists in the world
hey what aboutthomas alva edisonthe other have proposed theories but edison had discovered a bulb without which there is no light at nightandmicheal faraday for his contributions towards ac currentthey should have been in the top list
why the f*** is stephen hawking not there?
Did someone say Edison? I am laughing at you!He was NOT a scientist, and not a gentleman either. He was a business shark, who discredited Tesla in the War of Current (his investment in DC vs Tesla's more efficient AC). If all of today's technological advancement were written in a book, Tesla would be on it, while others might be found on footnote.
Robert Hooke, arguably the greatest all round scientist, who was written out of history by Newton.
this is really not fair that only european scientist top the list . what about india , only sir jagdish ch. bose...!!!.well i think not many people know but the law of gravitation was discovered by INDIA 200 years before newton discovered it.
1) Newton2) galilleo3) Einstien4) Darwin5) Bohr6) Archimidies.7) Edison.8) Faraday9) Aryabhatta10)Aristole
dude!where 's leonardo da vinci?????????????. he is the greatest scientist after all. a list without da vinci is totally stupid!!!!!!!!!!
where is aryabhatta, bhaskaraII, sushruta ,charaka and many indian scientists????????????. the deserve to be in this list . a list is no list without them
this is not the list of greatest scientists of all times but the greatest european scientists of all times ,perhaps
Every scientist is great. I dont believe in the Top 10. All of them are equal.
Where the heck is James C. Maxwell?!?!?!
Any list that includes Watson but not Crick is utterly moronic. Crick's contributions to biology are infinitely larger than Watson's.
Islamic scientists discovered nothing new. They translated fragments of Hindu books and called it their own. Matter and anti matter was well known to the Hindus, as was the age of the universe. Aryabhata was but a small part of this knowledge, as was calculus to the ancient Hindus. Yet the fragments of aryabhatas teachings encompass far more than the entire contribution of Islamic science to this world.
Darwin's theory of evolution is still just a theory. In fact new research shows that evolutionary mutation cannot improve brain tissue, in other words, we didn't grow a brain the way Darwin imagined it.As for Einstein, many of his theories are flawed and others are uncertain and unconfirmed, as was shown at CERN recently.And Fleming made penicillin by mistake.Not saying that these men weren't great, just that BBC should spend more time on educating its viewers.
Who are Arab/moslem scientists?!! Then why we don't call Newton, Dawin white/christian scientists? If Newton wrote his famous books in latin then why we don't call him a latin scientist? Folks stop your stupidity and instead of calling Arab/moslem scientists call them by their nationality: PERSIANS!!!!
1.Michael Faraday2.James Clark Maxwell3.Nikola Tesla4.Isaac Newton5.Albert Einstein6.Galileo Galilei7.Marie Curie8.Heinrich Hertz9.J.C.Bose10.Otto Hahn
Dude, where is Feynman ? Feynman is just the most awesome physicist the world has the pleasure to meet after Isaac Newton. In my opinion he was as important as Einstein , or maybe more.For sure who made this is a dummy
I think William Rowan Hamilton is a genius, he's a mathematician. ^.^
Little known Thomas Young was truly amazing. Made major contributions to physics (wave theory of light; elasticity, surface tension), psychology (trichromatic theory of color vision), linguistics (provided early work on the Rosetta Stone), and economics. In terms of breadth of contributions, he's in Newton and Da Vinci territory.Sir Bernard Katz had a hand in virtually every important discovery in neurophysiology from 1940 to 1970. Ramon y Cajal predicted 100 years of neuroscience discoveries on the basis of careful neuroanatomical work on a wide variety of species and developmental stages.
I'd agree that the top 3 are bang on. Hard to argue who would be the top, but I think Newton would be top due to the comprehension of his theory's and that they are free of charge. Einstein theory wasn't as popular as very few could understand what he was getting at in his time (or maybe it was the hair and poor hygiene).not sure why Darwin would be top. He didn't invent evolution, that theory was around even before his time and it was used for story telling mainly.
Ever since I posted about Bengali Hindu Indian SIR J.C Bose in Indian/Chinese Iq puzzle people are following it.Well Curie and Aristotole should go,J.C Bose or Chinese origin Charles K.Kao should come in inventor category but Bose was a bigger genius considering his contribution in plant science...that being said I must say in last 500 years more than 95% inventions have been made by white people but things are changing now.
In the game of science, no player is topper as there is no looser.........
Where is Schrödinger???
A list of top scientists can never be made.why are we neglecting aryabhatta who discovered zero and point.also neglecting kanad.
Its the best comment that could be written.
Nikola Tesla was perhaps the greatest engineer ever, but he was not a scientist.Otto Hahn would never have achieved what he did without the help of Lise Meitner and Fritz Strassmann. Hahn was however a very good man, and not responsible for the errors of the Nobel committee.
Otto Warburg. His studies on the metabolism of cancer cells led to our first understanding of what cancer actually is at the cellular level. Probably the most important biochemist of the first half of the twentieth century.
Watson but not Crick? Crick achieved many great things. If you include Watson (who wouldn't make my top 10), then you have to include Crick!
How can you forget the best mathematicians and scientist of India?Where is Aryabhata,Ramanujan, Brahmagupta,APJ Abdul Kalam and Dr. Homi J. Bhabha?Without them, maths and science is nothing.If you remember, it was Aryabhata who discoverd zero, the father of nuclear programme? There are many other scientists who contributed a lot. Without them, most of the discoveries and inventions were next to impossible. If they are not included in the list, your list is worthless not precious
Hi everyoneAll scientist that contribute to what ever discovery or inventions are the best but not the ones that steal information and publish them as their own and finally Darwin is an imposter and should not be called a scientist.
I love ur commentWhat about Da vinci
What if I would say that newton was a thief to steal concepts of old vedic science.I got to know about that from the following links.http://ajitvadakayil.blogspot.in/2011/01/isaac-newton-calculus-thief-capt-ajit.htmlPlz read once and proof if I am wrong.And why most of the discoveries in Europe started after they found direct way to India ?
