This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — Who was the most influential person (non-divine) of all time?

Mike delivers the ruling of the Council, joined by Connie, Steve, MC-B, Chloe, Tom and Josh:

The Apostle Paul.


Djere dissents:

Mohammed… many lost.


David dissents:



Next week: what one thing would we eliminate from the world?

    Some interesting information about this one — historian Michael Hart published a book ranking the top 100 most influential people of all time.

    He and Djere agreed on Mohammed, although Hart put Christ at #3. Paul was sixth on his list, so #5 without Jesus. Abraham was somewhere between 110-200. Our other unpicked nominations were Aristotle (his #13) and Leonardo DaVinci, whom he had between 100 and 110.
