    There are so many stories out there that free me out with regards to potential time travel. Even the megalithic structures they cannot explain..... But on a more comical note these Simpsons / Trump pics free me out...

    If it does exist (or will exist) then time travellers don't do anything to affect the future or some of the disasters/mad men would have been prevented.
    And somebody would have gone back and done something about American gun laws.
    And if they can't /don't change anything then they are just observing and it doesn't matter.

    If someone went back and prevented a disaster etc, that would create a different parallel universe some say

    I don't believe time travel will ever or has ever been possible, but I do believe some time in the future it'll be possible to observe the past - somewhat in the way we see stars millions of years in the past. Get a satellite far enough into space with a powerful enough "telescope" to look back on earth and then transmit in real time and you have images of the past.

    Technology will get there (if humans haven't killed each other by then). :)

    If they have changed the past/future how would we know. Take the second world war, you go back and kill Hitler so it never happens. Do we have jet engines? At the start of WW2 we had bi planes within 6 years we had jets and rockets which leads on to the space race. Without it would technology be 50-100 yeas behind?

    Or have they been there tweaking time, did they give someone the nudge to build the first jet engine? Is that what they are hiding at area 51 it's not Aliens but a crashed time machine? Where did the microchip suddenly come from?

    Get out your tinfoil caps the government is reading your mind though the fillings in your teeth!

    Ok maybe too much cheese before bed lol

    What if Mercedes technology had been more advanced in the past?

    One of the best explanations ...

    But of course we are all time travellers, currently only in the forward direction but not all at the same speed ....

    Which is more likely, time travellers messing with the past or aliens messing with the present?
    And which is more worrying?

    Both are equally terrifying, to borrow from A C Clarke ....

    It seems the OP’er (Lennox) has traveled into the future himself. I wonder when we’ll catch up with him?

    I didn't believe in it next year, and I still won't believe in it 10 years ago.

    I'd be focusing on the megaliths rather than the time travel, you can't verify time travel so easily - you have to believe what others tell you. Where-as, with the megalith anomaly you certainly can start to verify the facts around them by yourself, e.g. why does the original build height of Khufu from bedrock to tip X the number of seconds in a day = the polar diameter [or radius, don't remember] of earth....? Why is Ramses II face statue at Luxor a perfect mirror image of itself to 2 thou and so on. Try getting to the bottom of those questions first, then move on to time travel...??

    As for teleportation, I think they are doing this with atoms, or bits of atoms over 70 odd kms on the Canary Islands - could be wrong though.

    The world seems in a right state already... I quiver to imagine what it’ll be like in 100 years... thankfully I won’t be around :/
