Hypothetical conversations between people you would have liked to seen.

Ones I can think of:

Michio Kaku with Albert Einstein

Hawing, Kaku and Einstein

Peter Singer and John Mill

Neil Tyson and Galileo/Newton

Singer/Mill and Kant

Hume and Kant

Hume and Quinne

And many more.

Lol

But Gandhi and Jesus would be cool.

Great idea man, that was the premise of one of the greatest TV shows of all time, from back in the olden days before most of you guys were born.

Steve Allen, originator of the "Tonight Show", had another show called "Meeting of the Minds", he would bring together four people from history who sat around a table and had a conversation, Allen used thier real ideas and quotes to put fascinating conversations together. You would have a foursome like Genghis Khan, Mahatma Gandi, Jesus, and Socrates for instance, and they would have a fascinating discussion moderated by Steve Allen. Steve Allen was a genius and the show was done well, he picked the people and when I say he moderated the discussion, I mean he brought up issues and asked questions that would spur discussion, etc...it was truly a fascinating show that got deep into philosophical issues from different perspectives, absolutely brilliant.. I sure wish somebody would start such a show up again.

Cool, I just looked it up, turns out there's a web site about it and you can buy the shows, I'm going to get the set...here you go.

I would like to see any conversation about any issue where neither side is not permitted under any circumstance be allowed to play the tired and pathetic race card.
Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.

Sweet. I did see a pretend conversation with Jesus and Nietzsche recently but it wasn't that great.

This looks a lot better.
