If you could choose any historical figure to give a TED Talk, who would it be and why?

This one is pretty open-ended. I'm curious to know who you would choose for a TED Talk, why, and maybe what you think their "idea worth spreading" might be.

  • Apr 9 2013: God.

    Because then we could stop arguing about who's religion is the best and all simply get on with the peace and love.

    Peace and love.

      Apr 10 2013: I don't want to be rude but he asked about historical figure. If you'de like a TED talk from a historic religen figure there are many figures that have some or complete evidance of existence, like Joshua son of Miriam (Jesus as a peace loving person), Siddahartha (Buddah) Joseph Smith, L. Ron Howard and so on.
      • Apr 10 2013: I did consider others but they had already been taken so I went with the first thing that came to mind when reading the question. I'll be more careful not to express my thoughts next time so as not to offend you.

          Apr 10 2013: I'm not offended, and I'm sorry to make you fill not at ease, but I was just baffled by the choice, because mostly even religious people don't offer a direct speak of god or count him/her/it as a historic figure.

          Once again, sorry, truely. The more an opinion is diffrent, the more it is importent to express.
