If time travel was possible (ignore potential multi-universe theories and butterfly effects and the like), to what time on Earth's history would to travel and why?
Have a great, potentially godless, day!

What time: The day of Donald Trump's funeral
Why: To gloat

How about back to the day before he rode down the escalator to show everyone news articles from the next six years to let them know what would happen if they let him become president?

If I could take a Bible with I'd love to travel back to about two weeks before Jesus was crucified, assuming that actually happened. I'd read passages from the gospels to him that claim to be describing what we had done and said the last three years. If he reaction was anything other than: I did what?... I said what?, then I'd be very surprised.

To be clear: Atheism is not a disbelief in gods or a denial of gods; it is a lack of belief in gods.

I must assume that knowing is better than not knowing, venturing than not venturing; and that magic and illusion, however rich, however alluring, ultimately weaken the human spirit.

I'd fetch back and revive Jesus, just for the lulz.
Discovery is finding things that exist.
Invention is using things discovered.

Create that path and engineer a metamorphosis.
