I think this would be a lovely thread to start up.
If you had the chance in your life to meet someone in time, who would you meet and why? Try to be in depth with your answer, if you want to meet George Washington, why would you want to meet him instead of someone else.
Also respond as to why you would want to meet this person. Simply saying you want to meet Plato or Isaac Newton is not adequate. You must give a reason to why.
Feel free to list multiple people, as long as you give reasons why.
Please be respectful of people and their beliefs in this thread.
Julius Caesar. Julius was in my mind arguably one of the greatest leaders, generals, and politicians of all time. I admire Julius Caesar as well the the great things he did for the Roman empire. If I met him, I would indeed like to know the man that changed Rome from a republic to an empire.
Besides good ole Jules I'd like to meet some religious figures as well. I'd start with Adam and Eve, and eventually work my way through David and Elijah, I'd also like to meet Christ and his mother. I believe that would answer quite a few unanswered questions I have regarding Western religion, and I believe that would satisfy my hunger for knowledge regarding the bible itself.
