Who was the man of the millineum?
 
Post your thoughts and ideas!

satfire311 11-30-2005 02:46 PM

Good Qusetion
 
Very intriging question Minnie, I would say my top 4 would have to be...

1. Genghis Khan
2. Aldof Hitler
3. Matamata Ghandi
4. Gallileo

Mad Scientist 12-01-2005 08:51 AM

Satfire, that's Mahatma Gandhi, nor Matamata (ps: I think Matamata means "spy" or "private investigator" in Indonesian. Mahatma Gandhi was truely a great leader of the Indian nation.

I'll have to ponder your question a little more - it's not an easy one..and there are no right or wrong answers. But I do know that Mother Theresa is in my books for being the woman of the millenium!

PS: I don't think Adolf Hitler comes close to qualifying as the man of the millenium... as I would assume that the title should only be given to someone who contributed positively to humankind :)

satfire311 12-01-2005 01:09 PM

Thank you
 
Thank you mad for pointing that out.(I have issues with spelling)
Also, it doesn't really matter if the person was positive or negitive in influence. Although, in school last year we watched a movie and Hitler was at the bottom of the list, number 20 or 19, if I remember correctly.

BroadwayBaby 12-02-2005 12:27 PM

According to the A & E's Biography, the most influencial man was Johann Gutenburg. (Sorry in advance for spelling errors) Hitler was on the list, I believe he was 16. Galileo Galilie was number 10, w/ Nicolas Copernicus at a close 9. Almost all were scientists, emperors, or pioneers. Sigmund Freud was 12. Colombus was 6. Ganges Kahn was 23. James Watt was 25.
St Thomas Aquinas was 24. I have the whole list and will post it after to weekend. More to come!

According to Discovery Channels Who is the man of the Millenium?, Ronald Reagan was. Followed in some order by Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincon, Martin Luther King Jr. and Heorge Washington. Personally, I did not agree with that show though, for example, Elvis Presely was in the to 15!

minnie30567746 12-02-2005 12:31 PM

Wow!
 
I am watching the same AE Biography. So far, we are at the top five. My report is in the top five. Who do you think te number 2 person was? Who do you think my repot was on? I'll be able to answer soon!

satfire311 12-02-2005 01:12 PM

Cool! I think I saw the same movie last year. My person was Martin Luther and he was in the top five.

BroadwayBaby 12-02-2005 01:38 PM

Cool, I'm a lutheran! A scientist is a person who solves questions, is Martin Luther a scientist? It depends on how you look at things.

minnie30567746 12-02-2005 01:44 PM

Well
 
Any guesses on who my person was? Hint: BB's name is BradwayBaby, what do you see at Broadway?

moo42894 12-02-2005 03:04 PM

um.... you see plays! um.... is your person an actor?

minnie30567746 12-02-2005 07:28 PM

Close..
 
Who are people who write playS?

satfire311 12-03-2005 12:43 PM

I got It!
 
Okay, to answer Minnie's question, they are called playwrights. The most famous playwright, in my opinion, was William Shakespeare(Did I spell that right?) So I am guessing that was your person? To answer BB question, Luther wasn't a scientist by occupation, he was a monk. But it depends on how you look at things. In my opinion, scientists are people who study and explore the great unknown, and possibly discover things never seen or heard of before that time. So, I believe Luther was a scientist in his own way, for a religious purpose.

minnie30567746 12-04-2005 11:37 AM

Yes!
 
That is correct. My person was Wiliam Shakespeare! Very good.
He is in the top five because of:
Contributions to the English language
His special effects that he invented
His fabulous plots.

I'll provide more information tomorrow evening, probably.

minnie30567746 12-05-2005 02:38 PM

Her are the final AE results:
 
5.William Shakespeare:)
4.Charles Darwin
3.Martin Luther
2.Isaac Newton
1.Johannes Gutenburg

satfire311 12-05-2005 04:41 PM

Dupe
 
Go Martin Luther!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

moo42894 12-05-2005 07:16 PM

oh darn i didn't get it. lol :D

sciencechick425 12-16-2005 05:09 PM

man of millenium
 
well u also see musicals. i don;t know.

T_BOC 12-16-2005 05:19 PM

what about.......................
 
What about Ceaser chavez?He helped make this world what it is today.

satfire311 12-17-2005 02:51 PM

Yes
 
Yes he did have many positive contibutions to the world, but remember that was only the top twenty-five. I belive they go to the top one hundred in the movie I saw, so maybe he is in there somewhere. Also, to get oon the top twenty-five, you had to have done something that changed the word as we know it, or have come dangerously close, I don't believe he did something like that, but I'm not that familiar with his accomplishments, what did he do excatly?

minnie30567746 12-18-2005 04:56 AM

How many
 
Off you use Microst Office? THat wouldn't be here if it weren't for Bill Gates.

satfire311 12-18-2005 07:54 AM

Surprising
 
Well, it's alittle surprising that he was number 46 in the countdown, but in the world today that didn't really have an effect, we could go with differnt internet providers or just live without computers(although I could never live without a computer, lol)

minnie30567746 12-19-2005 01:49 PM

Yes
 
But think about all of the things people do with computers(e.g- cure diseases, make work easier, help students, etc.) SOme people wouldn't be alive without computers.

satfire311 12-19-2005 03:24 PM

I know
 
Yes, but he didn't creat a computer, he created a computer system. We could go with a different system. But like I said, I couldn't even live without my computer! lol!

moo42894 12-19-2005 05:56 PM

Computers help us! I agree with satfire, my life doesn't revolve around my computer, but you could say i get alot of extra help from websites just like this one, and where could i get it other than a computer??? :D

wisteria 12-20-2005 03:24 AM

I agree well it is fascinating but well what about women? since there is men...:confused:

satfire311 12-20-2005 06:48 AM

Women vs Men
 
Well, I had the same question, but think about the last millenium, did women have that much rights or social status? Maybe in the next 1,000 years, someone like Rosa Parks will be on there.

T_BOC 12-20-2005 10:43 AM

sorry
 
I know i'm alittle late posting this but Ceaser Chavez was a hispanic civil rights leader. At my school these collage women told our class about him,Our classlesson was about Rosa parks,Ceaser Chavez,and the one the only king.(no not Elvis Persly)Dr.Martin Luther King Jr.

satfire311 12-20-2005 01:20 PM

sounds cool
 
He sounds like he helped alot with civil rights.

wisteria 12-21-2005 03:26 AM

well although there weren't may women there should be some at least, from the past like the red cross? or first female prime minister/ presidedant (sorry about the spelling)?:confused:

minnie30567746 12-23-2005 08:12 AM

No
 
There hasn't been a female pres yet. Only men. But personally, that is how I think it should be.

SmartyC 12-23-2005 11:55 AM

What!
 
Did you just basically say "Men should only be president"?

I PERSONALLY think a woman can be president because we are just as intelligent as a man:)

minnie30567746 12-23-2005 12:04 PM

Yes
 
I believe men should govern women, that is how we were created. We are just as smart, but I think that is how it is meant to be:)

SmartyC 12-23-2005 12:14 PM

Well......
 
I guess everyone has their own way of looking at things!:D :)

minnie30567746 12-23-2005 12:16 PM

Yes
 
Just a diifferent opinion. But, really, if everyone felt the same way, it'd be sooo boring!

BroadwayBaby 01-01-2006 01:54 PM

I believe that women should be able to govern over men. It says in the bible that both adam and eve should rule the animals, and aren't humans just very intelligent animals?

wisteria 01-02-2006 12:34 AM

well I believe that we should live in harmony! :D

well there have been some female pres in other countries...

BroadwayBaby 01-02-2006 11:11 AM

Wow, we really got off subject!:D

minnie30567746 01-02-2006 03:08 PM

Yes
 
Yeah, but it is o.k. It is semi-relevant!

BroadwayBaby 01-04-2006 05:11 PM

I guess.:D :)

pluto929 01-23-2006 04:51 PM
