Question:
I have heard on the news that some scientists say it is possible to travel travel through time. Is this really possible?



Replies:
That depends on what you mean by "possible". Theoretically, I suppose time travel is "possible", but there is no scientific evidence for it. Here is something to think about though: suppose time travel into the past is possible and is discovered in the near future. Then why have not people in that near future traveled back to our present and told us about it?
