Is it normal to not believe in time travel being possible?

Time travel has been a topic in many sources for quite some time now. Even some scientists seem to believe in time travel being possible.

But honestly, I think time travel is as unrealistic as the flat earth concept.

Time is something that just happens. It's not a place or anything.

Time traveling will never ever make sense to me. It's just way too unrealistic, and I feel like someone is just trying to crash my brain whenever I come across that nuts topic somewhere.

Is It Normal?

  • It could be possible that time has more than 2 dimensions just like space, it doesn't mean you can go back to the fifties in a delorean and get sexually assaulted by your own mother

    • you just crushed the hopes and dreams of a few on here. I imagine a few of them don't even understand the reference.
      Creepy thing that happened to Calvin Klein.

  • Yes, its not possible.

  • There's no such thing as time travel (toward the past) as you understand it.
    The consequences would be cataclysmic.

  • I think lots of things are possible. We only use a very tiny part of our brains so yeah time travel is most likely possible also especially if there really are different dimensions and all of them exist at the same time. We might find out... One day... Once they used to think electricity was spooky but look now...

    • Actually, that's a total misconception. We use all of our brain, just not at the same time.
      Saying we only use a part of our brain is like saying a car only use a small part of itself because you have the lights turned off and are not using the brakes.
      This is nonsense and it had been debunked many, many times.

      • Yeah, the 10% (or whatever) myth is definitely not true, but very persistent. Maybe because we'd all like to believe that we could do astonishing things if we only figured out how to tap into our hidden potential.

        There's an interesting Wikipedia article on this, including some easy to understand evidence showing that it can't be true. For example, there's no part of the brain that can be damaged without there being some effect on its function and in some cases trivial damage can have a major impact, and scans show that all parts of the brain are active to some degree when carrying out different tasks. Also, brains are incredibly costly in energy terms (using anything up to 20% of our total energy consumption), and if parts of the brain really weren't necessary, evolution would have selected for humans with smaller brains who weren't wasting resources.

        • "Also, brains are incredibly costly in energy terms (using anything up to 20% of our total energy consumption)"

          Kind of explains the exhaustion one feels when dealing with GOVT bullshit like court, FSSA, or even the DMV.

          Funny though how fun brain activities are not as exhausting. Like how good sex takes a lot of energy yet we don't feel drained after yet even an easy day at work and we are spent.

        • Why are you saying this to me??

  • Time travel is only possible in one direction.

    • Funny... You can live up to thousand years if time travel start working... Whatever you called it then past or future

      • In what way do you think time travel would directly affect lifespan?

        • It wouldn't affect life span but if you jumped ahead so many years, like say you were born in 1980 but went to the year 2180, you would technically be 200 years old yet only have lived 39 years of that (assuming you departed in 2019)

  • As SunSnow says, Hawking believed it might be possible to travel back in time under some very specific situations. The physics of it are beyond me, but here's the thing:

    The Earth is obviously orbiting the sun, and our galaxy is rotating around its centre as well at an even higher speed than that of the Earth around the Sun. Just taking those two motions into account, if you hopped in a time machine and went back in time just one minute, you'd find yourself at some point in space about 13,000 kilometres away from where you started.

    But it would actually be much greater than that distance, since the Milky Way galaxy is flying through space at around two million kilometres per hour (or about 33,000 km per minute).

    So if anyone does actually make a time machine, they better make sure it's capable of life support and space travel on an interplanetary - maybe even interstellar - scale.

    • I would go back in time to stop my Mum from poking pin holes in my Dad's condoms. If successful, my existence would annihilate itself instantaneously.

  • Same here... But we no scientist
    Stephen Hawkin said it's possible
    In the brief history of time

  • Anything is possible if God can do anything. But i have a hard time wrapping my head around how humans could do this. Idk.

  • Yes. It's just a bullshit fantasy thingy shit.

  • It depends specifically what you mean by time travel as to whether or not I think it's possible. But for someone to think it's never going to happen is pretty normal, I'd say.
