Time Travel

An interesting idea I came across on another forum was that "UFO's" are actually us in the future. Not saying I believe that, but a man can dream- no?

Anyway, I think I would tempt everything and go back to the days Jesus Christ supposidly existed. I'm an atheist mind you, but I keep an open mind about me. And I would just like to solve one more riddle that puzzles me every day..

Tempting the God(s), you could say. :eek:
Although I am an atheist also, I believe that Jesus Christ did exist, seems to make no sense to anyone when I say that but I have reasoning, hear me out:). I don't believe that Jesus was the son of God, however I do believe that one man can be such an inspiration to all around him that his name can be graced in books and in tales.

I recently came across a page from the bbc website about the documentary 'Did Jesus die?' which was shown at the start of September, it says this:

'This film investigates the variety of stories surrounding the New Testament account of the crucifixion, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus, by interviewing historians, theologians and historical researchers. This exploration of the latest theories about what really happened to Jesus 2000 years ago uncovers some surprising possibilities.

At the heart of the mystery is the suspicion that Jesus might not actually have died on the cross. The film concludes that it was perfectly possible to survive crucifixion in the 1st Century - there are records of people who did. But if Jesus survived, what happened to him afterwards?

One of the most remarkable stories concerns the charismatic preacher Jus Asaf (Leader of the Healed) who arrived in Kashmir in around 30 AD. Just before he died at the age of 80, Jus Asaf claimed that he was in fact Jesus Christ and the programme shows his tomb, next to which are his carved footprints which bear the scars of crucifixion.'

This to me seems like one of two things, either it's true, or that Jus Asaf was someone who wanted to be Jesus. (Very much like some of the fanatics of famous people nowadays want to be like their idols, or even be them).

I know this is very off topic from time travel, but I'm still interested in this area.

I am fascinated by time travel. I would like to travel back to my teens and right injustices that happened to me. I would also like to watch a military battle from a safe distance and Spartan warriors training.

When would you like to travel to and why?

The problem is, if you righted the injustices would you be the same person? And if you righted them in the past, the future you that had his problems righted would be a different person and would not have any injustices to right so you in the present would not exist, so you couldnt right the injustices and so on and so on...
Mmm if it was possible I would probably too try to witness some battles (middle ages, feudal japan, mongolian invasion of china, battles at sea,...)
Still I think it would be frustrating to see how wrong historians are I guess.
If I could time travel I'd like to go back and converse with some of the great fantasy and horror authors of bygone eras. So cool....:cool:
Im curious as to why there is a 'thumbs down' at attached to this thread. And as for the subject matter and the forum it is presented in, the debate aught to stick to the feasability of time-travel in real life.
As PERCON originally said here, time travel is not possible.
And for all of those of us who believe this as fact unto our dying day, well, Im sure noone in the future will come back to haunt me, since that would be a terrible waste of thier efforts and there are surely better things for them to get up to! (Thats the fiction/fantasy side of me speaking)
I'd also like to go into a theological debate about Christianity and its origins but that may just bore the socks off anyone....
In fact time travel is possible and even more, humans have done it.
The fact is that if one in space spends less time than one on earth. The problem is that it is attached to the speed in which you travel. To actually go back in the future rather than gain some parts of a second to someone on earth one should travel beyond the speed of light.
After having been a member of this forum for well over six years, and being a big fan of Time Travel as a future reality as well as the various fictional versions of it, I am surprised that I haven't previously stumbled upon this old discussion of the subject.

My opinion on the forthcoming reality of Time Travel is, as stated elsewhere, that when they're eventually invented, Time Machines will be machines in which a person can travel forward and backward in time, throughout the operational existence of that machine (think of a railway line for an analogy - you can travel all the way to both ends of the line, or stop at any point between the ends, but the line itself stays where it is)
And therefore, the reason no time travellers have been spotted is that the first Time Machine has yet to be built. When that happens, travellers from the future of that machine will arrive in it - the first to arrive will be regarded as the temporal equivalent of Neil Armstrong. Closely followed by his agent, of course, and papparazzi from the future wanting to document the moment (and, weirdly, having grown up seeing their own photographs in history books on the subject.)
