If you could go back in time and have a conversation with any religious person throughout history (regardless of their popularity or prominence) who would it be and what would you want to talk about/ask?

Is this person someone who follows the same religion as you?
(you can pick multiples if you want!)

  • Jesus. I probaly would just listen and absorb.

    And of course I would pick a woman....Eve. Ask her "Do snakes really talk?" and "If I invite you over for dinner, please dont bring any fruit."

  • Hehehehe...I don't think he counts as a religious figure, but I'd say Socrates. He's SOOO freaking fascinating. His entire life was so awesome. I can't remember if he considered himself a deist, agnostic, or atheist. But he ended up being executed for speaking out against the government.

  • St. Francis Of Assisi... I want real answers about Stigmata.
    Mary Magdalene... I want to know about her REAL relationship with Jesus and I would love to meet their daughter Sarah as well.
    Alister Crowley... Besides Merlin there is no better teacher in sorcery.
    Morgan LeFay - DUH... What witch wouldn't want to meet her?
    Anton Xander Levey - I want to learn about his beliefs from the source and not from hearsay and edited books.

  • definitely Mary (Jesus' mom) and Mary Magdalene just to get their pov of everything (since the Bible leaves it all out). Mohammed and Buddha just to talk to the men who are the heads of religions i know so little about. Esther cause she's always been my favorite Bible character.

    oh and L Ron ask him some serious questions about Scientology and finally get some answers!
