    Well, anyone who is willing to sacrifice himself for the well being of others is a great man indeed. But the English translation of his name isn't a name that he would have recognized. He was called in Aramic, Joshua Bar Yousef. (Jesus son of Joseph)

    I understand you. My name is also Michael in English, but my real name is Michel. The name John in my language is Huan. In Dutch his name is Johannes. So, the important thing is to know who we worship. God bless you!

    Jeff Bezos is a great digital marketing manupulator. Search on Google for something like "Affiliate Marketing", "Affiliate Marketing Networks", "Affiliate marketing programs" and you will find that 100% of the blog posts ranking on top 10 are paid by Jeff Bezos to include a low paying affiliate network like Amazon Associates into their blog post and Amazon bought backlinks to these blog posts to rank them for affiliate marketing related keywords. See how Jeff Bezos has fooled the world.
    Now there is other thing, when you link to Amazon Associates blog they uses amazon.com main domain that passes link juice from affiliate websites to the amazon product pages and makes them rank high on Google.

    Amazon has access to everything, including confidential info. Amazon uses 3rd party seller data when it makes it's business decisions. I would hardly think that this unethical business practice, makes him the greatest person in history.

    He may be the greatest thief in history, but I really do not think that is the answer that the OP is looking for.

    I am TOTALLY confused by your answer. It makes NO sense whatsoever.

    In English proper names are capitalized, so you should have said, "Muhammad Saw." to answer the OP's question.

    That said, I have have never heard of Mr. Saw. Who was he? What did he do to make him famous/infamous?

    Or did you forget to put an object in the sentence and you meant "Muhammad saw the pretty sunset." or whatever? If so, please finish the sentence and clarify what you mean.

    Or maybe there is a "Muhammad saw" similar to a hack saw, a chain saw, a crosscut saw, or some such. If so, HOW does that answer the OP's question?

    The greatest person perhaps for Turkey and for Turks, but what did he do for the rest of the world?

    At least Jesus tried to save us my Mormon friend.:) But look at our overall behavior since he died. Did we improve, are we a better creation? Did humanity learn from his teachings? Did Jesus succeed in his mission or did he (we) fail?

    Society as a whole I would say is not a downward trend. As far as if Jesus succeeded in His mission, I would say absolutely, yes! It is up to us to accept His Atonement and follow His example.

    Which example should I follow? Turn the other cheek or kick over the money changers tables and use a whip made of rope?

    Interesting that you think of it that way. There was only one time that Jesus ever got angry and that was it. It was because people had turned the temple into a commercial enterprise. Most people believe this was justified.

    Moses comes down from Mt.Sinai with the tablet containing the 10 commandments, including "Thou shalt not kill". The very next day he killed thousands of his own people for worshiping the golden calf. I guess you can do anything you want according to Christians, as long as you feel it is justified.

    Why "unknown"? I don't see such requirement in the main post.
