Would you rather be transported permanently 500 years into the future or 500 years into the past?

Which would be either Saturday, March 13, 1518 or Sunday, March 13, 2518

So, 1518 was not a good time for anyone, let alone women or mothers. People died young from disease and bad health practices. Women died in childbirth often.

The church was in control in ways that probably still happen but are not quite so obviously out on the table for the whole world to see. The Protestant Reformation was 500 years ago. Here’s an interesting article about the church and someone who set out to change the status quo at the time.

Now, what will the future hold? We could end up right back where we started. Or things could get better. I suspect that things will remain relatively the same as it relates to humankind.

Sure, we might have great advancements in technology or medicine. Maybe even psychology! But, at the core, humans like to dominate and that has been our downfall over and over. So, will we even be here in 500 years? I don’t know, but I’m sure that’s the one I’d pick because I’d rather find out what I don’t know, than to visit a past that I already know is going to be difficult.
