Bored... anyway, if you had the ability to travel to any time period ONCE and back safely, where would you go and who would you want to meet? I would probably go back to before WWII started and get rid of Hitler. After doing that i would feel i had accomplished something great and would not feel a reason to want to see anything else... although meeting Jesus or Moses would be a plus

And what gives you the certainty that things wouldn't turn out worse without him?

I'd probably go and peer at some dinosaurs for a bit, just to see if what we understand at the moment is anything like what actually was. For all we know, they could have had biodegradable space rockets and laser guns. I don't think there was anyone noteworthy to meet around then, though.

Scotland used to be heavily forested. I would like to go back to a time period to see it...the UK covered with Old Growth trees.

Greece....Archimedes.

What a coincidence, just found this.

I'd like to go back and observe the ancient civilizations like the Mayans and see how they lived.

I would go back to the fall of 2004 and bet on the Red Sox!

Stephen Fry wrote a book about time travel and doing away with Hitler.....and the consequences were worse. I don't have all the details, but it is an interesting read.

Hitler was funded by some extremely powerfull people. I am sure if hitler was dead, there would be another person to take his place. If you were to meet moses, how would you prepare for the flood? Would you just want to "meet" jesus? Or would you want to save him from the jews that killed him?

As for me I would like to be able to simply review the biblical times and figure out if things really happened just as the bible portrayed them. After all the bible is written by people, not god. So I doubt it.

Honestly I would go back in to the year 2000, buy fightingarts.com and turn it in to a site dedicated to barney and friends.

Hitler was a one of a kind in terms of public figure, speaking, and influence. I doubt anyone could pull off what he did.

Do you mean Noah? I don't think Moses flooded anything.

As the bible goes he was executed by Romans.



Lets be very careful what goes on in this thread in dealing with religious and political discussions.

I'm really the only one who would go back with modern weapons and take over the world? You guys are saints.

Building an empire is easy. Maintaining one is harder. It is like building a house...build it once but then you have to deal with repairs, the electric bill, the lawn...

Hadn't thought about that. Oh well, when I get sick of it, I can still travel back to our time, with all the gold from the royal treasure.
