In what historic trial would you as Time Traveler (TT) choose to speak for the defense? And do you think you could influence the outcome?
Would you, coming from 2010 and knowing what you know, be a witness for the defense of the likes of Galileo Galilei, Joan of Arc, Jesus Christ, Socrates? Whom would you defend? What would you say?
Do you think your testimony at the trial would be persuasive enough to save the defendant of your choice?
Please note, this is not a question about the butterfly effect (going back and changing the course of history with a single act). This is about which historical figure you would choose to argue for if you could travel in time, knowing that he or she was in fact condemned at that trial.
