    That is not necessarily the point. It is not so much about whether or not I believe them. I have seen enough about time travel that I no longer have to question if it is real or not. It is not about being convinced. So what if he is or isn't? It makes little difference to me in a general sense.

    The point I am trying to convey is more in regard to the concept of how it functions and what actually qualifies as proof. There is a way to do so involving reason and circumstance, but there are certain qualifications/criteria/parameters that must be met in order for it to actually be proof/evidence. And it can vary according to perspective and whatnot.

    I am sorry that you find the finer points of conceptualizing time travel to be so tiring. I'll try to make it more entertaining and summarized from now on, just for you.

    The above point can be summarized as; It don't work like that if you want to prove it to everyone.

    So you don't care if time travel is real or not and yet you still need proof?

    I don't care whether or not Observer is a time traveler, nor do I need proof. Again, my focus is more about how it functions and discrepancies with what people consider proof.

    What one considers proof is up to oneself. Skepticism can be held to the point that you won't believe it even if you time travel, until you spend enough time there that it convinces you. But even so, isn't it POSSIBLE the machine you went through did something else to you and you didn't time travel, but just think you did? What is PROOF? It's such a controversial subject that it's possible we need to advance science and our understanding of the universe itself before we can fully accept or comprehend time travel as a nation. That still leaves the possibility it does exist in secret and only certain chosen ones are allowed to know. But due to supposed secrecy, knowing it would not be a joyous thing for long. Heavy secrets take a toll on the soul. That's why you see all of these old guys near their death bed, start to admit certain events taking place that were myth or rumor, so they can clear their conscience. In their old age, they don't have much left to fear, because their end is near.

    Fortunately for me personally, i possess what is called a "spidey sense" which in simple terminology means "gut feeling" :D.
    I offer to anybody who comes on here claiming to be a time traveller, the chance to actually meet me in person and perform a very simple test, which to date no one has done yet.. (all their excuses for NOT doing it come flooding out):(..

    No disrespect intended to you, but i dont think anybody needs (according to you) the necessity of an "advanced science, or the understanding of the universe itself ", to know when a person is simply an attention seeker...We have had people on here saying that a very simple "crystal radio" (nowadays known as a Quantum Crystal Radio!!) can transport someone back in time to a specific era, or they will use an empty Pringles Can with a small amount of wire wrapped around it to do the same thing..:D

    "Common Sense" which all of us possess negates any need for universal understanding or advanced science, but of course that is my own personal opinion, and as per usual i stick to it (y)..

    I generally agree. Short of an actual open real-time demonstration of time travel, it's not necessarily proof or is going to satisfy a lot of people. However, I will argue that it can indeed be 'proven' by means of evidence and logic. But it's not exactly elemental or easy.

    It's provable, and problematic, ..mostly because people are generally evil selfish and stupid. And anything done "as a nation" is evil and dangerous. People are selfish and stupid, especially when organized in large numbers with weapons and a cause. NEVER EVER allow a government possess time travel. That is as bad as allowing a religious sect to have it. Same difference.

    It does. And it looks like the world is in a heap of shit that it can't even see.
