i don't think anyone on NS can intelligently speak on the possibilities of time travel
go read stephen hawking lecture = mind blown
I almost went as far as trying to think up some creative way to disprove this and you just earned yourself the well-thought-out-comment-of-the-day award. Congrats.
the fuck would happen to me if i travelled back in time and triggered an event that caused me to die at a younger age than my current time travelling self? cannot divide by 0..
the only logical postulation is that we could travel into the past simply as observers, unable to interact or change anything that has happened.
you might be the worst aguer on NS...it can't happen because it already would have? really??
One of Hawking's major points about the possbility of time travel is that the human race isn't intelligent enough right now to ascertain technology powerful enough, but given the way our science/engineering knowledge is growing at an exponential rate he believes its a high possibility in our future
I think you're right..he's a big advocate of future time travel, can't say i've read much about him supporting time travel into the past
why are you treating traveling to the future and traveling to the past as the same? Past and future time travel are very different....read up on time dilation and time relativity before spewing your garbage dismissing time travel as a simple subject that can be summed up into one bonehead internet post
if you guys really want to see somethign that will change your mind and how you think about time travel watch this and the whole series. Watch about 3 minuteso f this one and you will see why
