  1. The black holes are used to displace gravity. Titor's machine was a gravity displacement unit. The machine does NOT travel through the black holes. Therefore, no crushing.
  2. I don't see how that would matter.
  3. It IS strange how both Christianity and Islam consider tolerance a virtue and yet spawn the most intolerant people. Both are supposed to strive to be loving and peaceful but they act as though they are suppose to hate those that do not conform to their beliefs.
  4. You don't need to worry about paradox. Nothing bad would happen. Unfortunately, most people would have dismissed the email in 1998 as some kind of joke.
  5. There are many religions that are not based on unexplained phenomenon such as Buddhism, Confucism, and Daoism. Also, in reply to another poster, morality in most every religion is based on love and selfLESSness, regardless of the dogmas and superstitions involved. That simple principle is consistant in most every religion. Yes, there are religions that are based on selfishness and self-love. I do not consider them religions but farces. True love is selfless but a person can only love others as much as they love themselves. Life is paradoxical.
  6. Time stops when movement stops. Movement is energy. Time can not exist without energy.
  7. Re: Didn't Titor change the past?(First post!) The problem is that in order to influence politics, much more than 50% need to believe the inevitability if changes in policies are not made since a rather large percentage of the people who feel a certain way never do anything to try to influence politics. There are probably less than 1% of the U.S. population that has even heard of John Titor. Unless that figure gets up to 60-70% it won't make a difference. The people that believe in the inevitability of civil and world war if we do not improve policies need to state their case to the masses and pursuade them to influence politicians.
  8. I was refering to the Illuminati. Comparing the Masons to the Illuminati is like comparing the Boy Scouts to the Marines. That is why parties were not allowed in the original constitution.
  9. Congress WILL meet on saturday or sunday when they have to. The last time I know of was to pass the federal budget last year.
  10. Time started to exist when matter started to change. A change occured when particles started to move. Space always existed. Then came mass, then came time. Energy is the power of force from the movement of mass. Radiation and light are caused by photons, electricity is caused by electrons, and heat is caused by friction causing the increased vibration of atoms.
  11. While I agree with most of what is said I think I have something to add. I agree that good and evil are subjective. Good is what helps us, evil is what hurts us. Everything we consider evil was considered good or necessary by someone else. Also, good and evil can not exist without each other. They are opposite sides of the same coin. All good deeds can be looked at from a negative perspective, and all evil deeds can be looked at from a positive perspective. Good and evil are radically different from the perspective of a religious person and an atheist. When it comes to religion love, and the encouragement of others to love is the definition of good. People are even encouraged to love their enemies. The atheists would disagree with that because it puts a person at risk for no "good" reason. However, love is a creative force and hate is a destructive force. But it is true that it is sometimes necessary to destroy in order to create. The building that replaces the world trade center will be much nicer and it wouldn't have been possible without the destruction of the WTC. War is often to replace failing governments with ones that work better. Another good reason for evil is that evil helps to teach us. We learn much more when we have problems to overcome. It makes us stronger. In that regard, all evil is good.
  12. Nothing slows it down but the particles or magnetic fields it collides with affects the direction it travels, and affects its vibration (and therefore wavelength).
  13. He would not return to his timeline but one very close to his, and some John from a timeline very close to his own would return to his own. It would appear that it was the same John on all timelines that were near zero devergence. It is like trying to conceptualize "now." As soon as you think about "now" it is "past." There are an infinite number of "nows" in a day, a minute, and a second. When we think of "now" we are really thinking of an infinite number of "nows."
  14. There is another organization which most republicans are loyal to that most democrats are not affiliated with. These individuals DO act as a homogenous unit with very little deviation, especially when it pertains to their objective of world domination. I think Dean is a joke. He doesn't stand a chance. Gephardt would be my democratic choice but I never vote republican or democratic if I can avoid it because niether party appears to value the preservation of the planet or humanitarian concerns. People who are not humanitarian are just highly evolved animals.
  15. You're right. It's not a dictatorship, and I don't believe it will become one. GW is a puppet just like most of the rest of the GOP. As far as the senate remaining republican, THEY have ways to get what they want that democrats do not employ nor are in power to do if they did. (Such as blacklist democratic voters by calling them felons, close democratic county polling places early, lose ballots in democratic counties, all of which they did in Florida for GW.) Unfortunately, I believe that the repulicans are much more united it their thinking, philosophies, policies, and decision making than the democrats. They are much more of a unit. There are far fewer "defectors" in the GOP when it comes to voting. We're screwed.
  16. I would expect them to happen very soon after Bush is granted his second term. When he doesn't have to worry about his image anymore since he can't have a third term, he will scrap what's left of the constitution.
  17. If it wasn't for my family I would go in a heart beat because I KNOW the people of the United States have to face the penalty for intentional ignorance. No problem has ever been solved by ignoring it, but the people of the U.S. act as though they can ignore the environmental problem, starvation, the reasons for terrorism, the rich using the government to get richer, etc. Just too many things that are uncomfortable for people to think about so they ignore them. When these things get bad enough (and they will soon) there will be a LOT of sufferring so that they learn to deal with problems instead of ignoring them. Our lives are a "in your face" situation. All personal problems and defects of character will be "in your face" until you deal with them. Ignoring them makes them worse.
  18. What would be better is keeping the telescope here and sending out a huge mirror. That way we'd cover twice as much time in the same period. Better yet, we could send out many mirrors in different directions and use them to control the time we are observing. Unfortunately, we haven't even been able to get anything to move at 1/10th the speed of light yet. (60 some thousand miles per second is the fastest that I know of for a space probe)
  19. Re: The Two Time Travelers 11:11 Yea. The second time traveler would not notice any changes. What ever changes would be instantaneous and everyone would be convinced that that is the way things always were. Only the first time traveler would be aware of the changes and then have to tell the second one how things were before and how it was a mistake for him to have gone back. The second traveler would then go back because he would know the results of his trip, but when he got back the first traveler would forget what changes he had made (temporarily) so then everyone would then be ignorant of what the first trip did and it would probably be repeated ad infinitum.
  20. Re: Civil War in America\\\\HOSTORICAL NOTE What concerns me is that Titor was not the only one to say 100,000 people would "die tomorrow." It seem to be a common belief among many that a "terrorist" act will kill 100,000 people and it is exactly what Bush wants to implement his police state. It is troubling that they (Bush administration) are urging other countries to put armed people on planes headed to America because it means to me that Bush has other plans to get his 100,000 "terrorist" casualties. I will not be surprised if a 100kT nuke goes off in NY or LA. It will be untraceable and be blamed on terrorists. Instant martial law.
  21. Re: Titor Predicted 'Mad Cow' in U.S. Was "idiotic non-sense" paraphrasing Bush or your personal opinion? It was not non-sense, as America had no justification to go to war with Iraq. They posed no threat to America or anyone else besides Israel. Yes, Bush did convince the American lemmings that there was justification but he used lies to do it.
  22. I am well aware that we are headed toward fascism. The Patriot Act gives the government justification to arrest anyone by calling them a terrorist. I've said for 10 years that police do not pull people over for going 5 mph over the speed limit because they want everyone to do it so that they can pull over whomever they wish. People who drive the speed limit are a nusence (sp?) and are an exception, not a rule, at least in Wisconsin and Illinois. If G.W. feels that he might lose the election we can be GUARANTEED a terrorist attack and the full-fledged enstatement of a police state as a result in the name of homeland security. Hook-line-sinker for the baby boomers and their ignorant offspring who don't have brains of their own.
  23. You are right - it does seem odd. I didn't intend to give the impression that it wasn't just because I believe that the statistics show people working more hours a week on average in America than they were 30 years ago and Titor saying that they work longer hours in 2036 than we do now is all I was saying.
  24. Why don't you read John Titor's explanation of how he said his time machine works (should be November 2000 posts) at http://www.johntitor.com There is a simple explanation why you can go back any interval of 1 second with his machine and still end up in the same exact place in relation to the surface of the Earth.
  25. U.S. will not willingly cut or limit trade with China no matter what. 85% of the products at Wal-Mart come from China. U.S. is so concerned about their "standard of living" that would change dramaticly without cheap Chineese slave labor.
