Even if someone went back in time to begin with; the changes made then would already have effect here because we would not have gotten here otherwise.

ie. let's say I go back in time to kill my grandfather before my father is born. That would simply not occur becuase if I were successful then I would not be born in the first place to go back and effect that change.

The only time machines that could possibly be made are ones that only go forward in time. Otherwise there is no way in hell we would have absolutely NO record in the history of time of anyone "bizarre claiming they were from the future".

This is definitely a BIG deep thinker.

My brother said that one time, that as Rufus said in Bill and Ted, "Time HAS told" and if there were any weird wild eyed scientists claiming to be from the future we'd have heard it. But then I thought, but what if they DID change history, so (like the alternate 1985 in Back to the Future II) the past as we see it now is the future of the things that were changed, or the point at which the time line spewed into a tangent...

(which has been my sig for weeks now )

Back to the Future is one of the only movies I will stop and watch everytime if I am channel surfing.

If time travel were possible and you tried it, you would never be heard from again. The planet moves. If you stood right where you are and went forward or backwards, the planet would move out from under you and you would end up in among the stars somewhere. How do you time travel and stay on the earth?
