If you had an opportunity to be born again (let's not make this more complicated than it is), what year would you choose and why? Keep in mind, you get to keep all your noodles.

I'd like to pop up in about 20AD. Be a scribe, record all I can (in english), maybe do an interview or two, and hide it uh.... where? Where should I hide my scrolls?

And I'd make the newer, better god with REAL morals and not the "homosexuality and abortion is a sin" bull.

I'd go back to before the first civilization with plans for all the major inventions and innovations throughout history and give them to all early people's of the world, including the fact that I'm not a god, but a man who's come to give them knowledge and learning, and try to seed the seeking of knowledge, the golden rule, and brotherhood with all of man kind. You know, try to make with the world peace thing.

That or I could just go back in time and ride a dinosaur then get some awesome space food in the future. Actually strike that. I'd ride a dinosaur while eating awesome space food in the future.

I'd likely just stick around here for now... I've seen it play out this far.

I never walk out on a good flick either.

Where should I hide my scrolls?

You could hide them in a box and bury them near Cumorah hill in Manchester, New York.
Oh, wait... Joseph Smith Jr and the Latter-Day Saints already claimed that spot.
And there can't be two sets of scrolls in the same place now, can there...
Or can there???

I can see it now: The Scrolls of Sam-Spade; exibit admission $7.00 - kids free.

Year 3000. I would love to see the technological advances that we would have made by then.

Some people call me a smartass, so I'm guessing I'd like to be born as the guy who inevitably loses it, and kills me.
That way I can live life in his shoes and after killing myself go ...

Definately the year 2990 to watch all the people panic over fear of the technological advances crashing!

God doesn't say anything in the bible. A bunch of humans wrote stuff down, then some more humans re-wrote what the first ones wrote. They were called scribes. Then some more scribes re-wrote what the first scribes wrote. Then the pope of the long ago times was like "I'm tired of having sex with little boys and killing my numerous wives little babies. I decree that abortion is a sin and homosexuality is bad too. Umm... God told me in my sleep. Now give me more money."

I want to be born in the 23rd century so I can see if the real Captain Kirk looks anything like William Shatner.

And, well, I want my own holodeck so I can have a threesome with a hologram Scarlett Johanssen and Jessica Alba. I don't think I'd ever leave.

Since there is no guarentee of the future existing, I would choose 1920, set up coffee/tea shops and put them on push carts, introduce icecream and soda shops by the thousands and make millions and bank it in solid gold bars, come back to the future and be a billionaire over night..... Wishing was one of the greatest mental inventions ever eh?

I would be born in the days of Mozart - 1785 and live long enough to meet Brahms, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, the Schumanns and many of my favorite other composers and writers as well. The 19th Century suits me best for many reasons and in many ways I still live it.

My other option would be to relive my very difficult life over and to spend time with the one's I loved. Perhaps, that is a choice many of us have made at some time and not remember it now?... Deja Vou anyone?... :-)

Non sequitur. Your facts are uncoordinated.

The year 2085 does not exist.

He could mean in Israeli time. They go back to the 5,000's since only the christo-centric regions of the world use AD as a standard.

The Year of our Lord 2085 is 2085 A.D. It used to be commonly written with the A.D. placed before the year, as in A.D. 2085.

I'd like to be born exactly 10 years earlier to experience the 1950's lifestyle. I would also take with me several big-winning lottery numbers as per the "you get to keep all your noodles" clause. I would also do something like invest in Apple computers and cell phones, or just "invent" them and other things myself.
