    I am a Christian though.

    I would say that many people have done good things because they are both a good person and they take inspiration from a religious/historical figure. The figure doesn't have to be religious, it's just that in the case of Jesus, He has inspired far greater numbers of people than anyone else.
    Well then this is a pointless debate, you're naturally going to be subjective. There's isn't really anything to suggest he's inspired more people than anyone else

    Of course I'm going to be subjective. I would've thought any decision on who you think is the greatest human ever would be subjective, unless you're an emotionless robot.

    A debate isn't interesting, nor is it a debate when there aren't any subjective views. A debate is there to discuss subjective ideas not objective ones.

    Ok poor semantics on my part but when you're taught to love and worship someone your view on them is going to be different to someone who you respect and admire because of historical facts.

    I don't quite understand how Jesus could even be in contention when no one knows what he did or didn't do, the only source is fairly unreliable

    quite a few like: Einstein, Obama, Muhammad, Watson and Crick, Shakespeare, Confucius, Alexander, Cyrus, Stephen Hawking, Mark Zuckerberg, MLK, Wright brothers etc

    all these people can be seen as the greatest because they have made a significant cultural impact with regards to the way we think and what we do.

    After I have read his biography, I have to add another name: Wittgenstein, the revolutionary of Philosophy. He has my deference if I consider what he done, not only in Philosophy.

    Most influential man in history of the world is Napoleon. Much of what occurred during the 19th century can be directly attributed to that man and, of course, he therefore indirectly impacts the rest of human history to the modern day. Easily the most important man that has ever lived.

    I'd agree for the modern era he's definetly up there at the top. It's real difficult to compare people from antiquity and modern times. I've had that problem with trying to decide who is the greatest ever military comander out our Napoleon or Alexander. I think Alexander but they lived in such different times its hard to compare.

    Well what about Genghis Khan? One in 200 people are supposed to be directly linked to him, I'd say that's quite influential, certainly enough to challenge Napoleon

    In what world did you think a facepalm smiley is an okay reply. It's just rude.

    Rothschilds consciously shaped the modern version of the banking system and the concept of debt, thereby having an extraordinary impact on the world we live in. If you think about it, it shapes every single aspect of your individual life directly or indirectly. I think it's a fair judgement, especially when contrasted to warfare of Bonaparte [directly influenced by Rothschild banking], Kaisers or Hitler which can be simplified into status quo ante bellum: restoration of Bourbon dynasty (Bonaparte), defeat of German Imperialism and Pax Britannica continuation (WWI), defeat of Nazism and continuation of hostility between the two dominant ideologies (WWII).

    Of course there were some fundamental changes, but contrasted to the architecture of Rothschild as the dominant banking dynasty they are really of meagre importance.

    I'm not a conspiracy theorist (of which there are many), I'm only relying on what is a widely available knowledge.

    Perhaps Rothschilds would struggle against some philosophers and religious leaders such as JC, but then again when it comes to taxation, hire-purchase, mortgage, your tuition fees, even the price of milk: the legacy of, inter alia, Nathan R. is a lot more significant on our everyday monetary matters.

    To repeat....:facepalm2: I understand the Rothschilds as a dynasty but to say Nat is the greatest human in the history of the world is preposterous and ridiculous .

    1. I know it can't which is why it's unreliable
    2. Could you give me a reliable source for Jesus' galavanting?
