    Morphy. Americans are undefeated in World Wars.   What the hell has Norway ever done?

    Google "Norway Heavy Water" and you might learn WHY the Americans ended up on the winning side.

    They are both great. Morphy would easily be top 5 today imho.

    It is very creative to think who is better, but, it is stupid simple to choose one of them.

    Imagine this picture: Leonardo da Vici in his forties, today with laptop and internet for one or six months. What would he able to make?

    Next: who is better singer Enrico Caruso, Mario Lanza or Pavarotti? All dead, but with some covered time.

    At the end: who is better leader: Julius Caesar or Adolf Hitler?

    As you see, we have to think a little bit wider?

    Most people would not hesitate in choosing Caesar. He has a much better reputation. Singers are also not necessarily a great example, the arts and chess are quite different in some ways.
