Dette er selvfølgelig ikke en sant referat, men hvordan ville samtale ha forløpt dersom Sokrates hadde hatt en samtale med Jesus?
Her er et utdrag:
Socrates: What is heaven?
Jesus: It is a wonderful place high in the sky. The streets are paved with gold. Everything is peaceful and beautiful there. God lives there and all who believe in God go there when they die. Men have eternal life there and are given wings and worship God and play harps in eternal bliss and happiness forever. It is the purpose and goal of all of man’s life to go to heaven when he dies.
Socrates: This sounds much like the accounts I have heard given by those who have eaten the lotus flower.
