Wow.... long. lol. Sounds like that guy knows what he is talking about, and there are some fundamental flaws with JT's story. Although you can't really disprove time travel, he screwed himself by posting details.

Besides all the obvious ways and means of debunking JT, this 'what if' is what makes me skeptical.
If i went back to 1975 from 2005 i'd tell people to stop polluting, invest time and money in clean energy or you will destroy the planet (or something along those lines). I would not bother with: who will be president(s), wars/conflicts, natural disasters, music/trends, alien/government conspiracies, or even how i was able to travel in time.
Pollution/globalwarming/melting polar ice/forrest depletion/extinction of species/ozone layer/methods of clean energy/getting off the grid etc... - would all be extremely high on my priority list.
How come JT didn't do that? Knowledge from the future can save the human race, all he did was stir up politics. Thats it in a nutshell - stirred up politics.
Not only are my grave concerns not addressed, he blows them off as if its all insignificant. I know plenty of youth today who are wholeheartedly in the 'environmental camp' without beeing 'tree hugging hippies. If he were a youth today, why would he not be concerned (or even informed) on the subject?
When i place myself in his position, it seems that i see it from a completely different viewpoint than he did.
