Sorry, Time Travel Will Never Happen

September 4, 2014 at 1:23 am 1 comment

I am now convinced that there will never be a way to travel back in time, because if it ever was to become possible it already would (in a future sense) have happened, and as a prime consequence of this there would be no sign of what’s for reasons unknown to me called organized religion. 

simple explanation

Me personally? Job one would be to jump in the wayback machine and take out whoever passed himself off as Mohammed the prophet, Jesus Christ, or anyone else that all those years ago felt a need to create a religion where people would have conditions forced on them that required the wearing of clothes from past centuries, and yes I’m including Hassidim as well as Haji’s. That of course assumes that these characters actually existed and were not just humans given superhuman attributes by groupies of the day.

Just for fun sometime, ask any super orthodox Jew what part of the Torah requires them to dress like they just stepped out of 18th century Russia, dingle balls around the edge of their flat brim hat and all,

then ask any Christian what part of any of their various bible iterations instructed them to consider all life sacred until it pops out of the birth canal, at which time it’s required to be on its own (should people be prohibited from picketing abortion clinics unless they can prove they also picket prisons when a criminal is about to be executed?),

And, then ask any student of Islam where in the Koran a difference worth killing over can be found in sharing a related ancestry with Jews as descendants of Abraham.

    How do we know that major religious figures weren’t time travelers themselves? Maybe Jesus came from a world without Christianity, and decided that religion would be the best “mindhack” to create a better world that followed relatively humanistic principles — not realizing that his religion would only become responsible for some of the worst evils in the new timeline. And sure, others might have stepped in after that, but maybe we don’t have the benefit of their intervention — they created distinct timelines from our own.

    Using time travel to prevent literally every messiah figure from appearing seems like a tall order. Humans just keep making them again and again. And how would you stamp out religious/supernatural beliefs altogether? The mere presence of science doesn’t do it, sadly. Show ancient people advanced future tech and they might assume some kind of magic afoot. Maybe you could visit every human as a child and teach them science? I’m guessing that things would be no different a year later, though.

    Your best hope might be to create a “religion to end all religions” — to present yourself as the ultimate god and demonstrate it by repeatedly appearing in history (while avoiding getting killed), then emphasize your secular values during your “visitations”. At a rate of living 1 day out of every year and treating it as a full-time job from age 20 to 70, you could cover over 18,000 years of history.

    Of course, my actual opinion is that time travel is entirely impossible, and besides the solid physics evidence on the subject, I think the absence of anyone who is best explained as a traveler from the future is compelling.
