Brain Sqeezer

Time travel. Can't stop thinking about it lately. It first started when I decided that Christ would be returning in the near future. If there is a future I am sure that we would have been able to tackle the time-travel problem, which would mean that eventually anyone can go back into time which would of course mean the end of the world. So basically, my theory is that either the world ends before we can do any damage to ourselves in time travel or Jesus comes back, in the future before we have that technology. More recently, I have been thinking that time travel is truly impossible altogether and here is where I need a few of you science geeks to help me out here. If I traveled back in time and gave myself the winning lotto tickets would it not alter my future which would alter my "future me" and would cause me to NOT go back into time in the first place which would negate the time-travel altogether?

Trivia: Name two famous songs that have "time" as the subject.

Perhaps you should use your time machine to go back and edit this post, eh?

hopefully you all can tell by the pic that this is mostly meant as a silly post... There was much stream of c. and lots of fun going on here.

Time is much more complicated than all of this... Pretty mind blowing actually. To the point of we need some new theology because Aquinas cause and effect might not cut it anymore...

My two are Time in A Bottle, Jim Croche and Fly Like and Eagle by Steve Miller Band.
