Exploring the Boundaries of Time Travel

Video from CBS Sunday Morning

"Breaking the bonds of time has been a timeless pursuit in science fiction stories and movies. Will it ever become science fact? Correspondent Faith Salie explores the possibilities of taking a journey to the future, or the past, even without a souped-up DeLorean." from video introduction.

It is not for us to decide our times, Jesus says, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority” (Acts 1:7). Through Christ we can have a vague understanding of our times, yet in general, under the sun, says the Preacher, “man does not know his time” (Ecclesiastes 9:12).

I hope someday to get our Lord to explain TIME to me! In the meantime here are some excellent discussions on time, and science.

"One hundred years ago, on May 29, 1919, astronomers observed a total solar eclipse in an ambitious effort to test Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity by seeing it in action. Essentially, Einstein thought space and time were intertwined in an infinite “fabric,” like an outstretched blanket. A massive object such as the Sun bends the spacetime blanket with its gravity, such that light no longer travels in a straight line as it passes by the Sun..." from the article: 10 Things Einstein Got Right
