i just read a wiki on newton, i was shocked that he is the 2nd most influential person in history. guess who is the first? muhammad, guess who is below newton, Jesus.

i am kind of wondering how can it be. correct me if im wrong but demographically speaking Christians have the most populations all over the world right? or i can be wrong.

Newton should probably be #1 on that list. Without his work, the industrial revolution wouldn't have happened and the computers we're both using as well as the internet connections that allow us to communicate wouldn't exist.

The problem was right at the beginning...taking wikipedia to be an authoritative source.

Wait...Muhammed as the most influential person of all time??? I mean, I could understand Jesus being in the top few (regardless of how I feel about him actually existing) but Muhammed???

Perhaps it is because of the numbers of people who have ceased to exist because of the followers of Mohamed?

Either that, or the evangelical Muslims have decided to do subtle reconaissance in wiki.

Only partly. The climate has been warming over the past 10,000 years. Since the end of the last ice age. It's true that industrialization has made a contribution.

Without the industrial revolution, we'd be living in 18th century conditions. I prefer the 21st century.
