What human being in history or now would you say is the most interesting ?
Since I asked, I'll give my vote first. I would say [b]Jesus of Nazareth.
Who would you say ? Anyone ?
Let's see who sonhouse would submit.[/b]
There is Imhotep, who designed the first pyramids but I wouldn't bring up his name just for that, as distinguished as that was, he also invented the first ideas of the scientific method, in the medical field, he prescribed meds or herbs but didn't just stop there, he got feedback from the people and made charts of what worked and what didn't.
Nobody did that before him. That was a world changer in science.
Then there was Aristotle, whose accomplishments are numerous, including being thought to be the person who designed and built the antikythera mechanism, the most advanced mechanism by far for the next 1500 years.
There are geniuses all up and down the timeline like Brahmagupta in India around the year 600 who invented zero as a valid math concept.
Then there was Copernicus who first realized Earth spun around the sun, not the other way round.
Then there was Isaac Newton and Leibniz who independently invented calculus and Newton most of pre-Relativity physics and optics.
And the artists like Leonardo Da Vinci, Rembrandt and such,
All geniuses down the ages.
Much more important than your man made god. They made a real difference in the world.
All that happened sucking up to your man made god was literally millions of people killed in sectarian violence, which is going on as we speak right up to today.
If your so-called god is so great, have it come down and say so, otherwise humans talking about god(s) are just making up stories.
The Abrahamic god is full of human attributes like jealousy, right, a GOD being jealous of humans. What a laugh.
Like humans having an ant colony and becoming jealous of individual ants. Not gonna happen.
