do not think anything suggested so far, would get people to believe you were a time traveller.
IE on timeline A the BEARS win the superbowl, on timeline B New England wins, and timeline C might not even know what football is.
Only if the traveler is able to bring something back that is absolutely impossible in our timeline ie. a ray gun that turns water into wine or something like that.
you would never get a chance to prove it works, you have one chance to show the whole world, and then your gone.
time travel is something they would never allow for a lay person, far to dangerous.
how would you even get the story out before they get you? [continued] also being the fact you would be only human, that means there would be plenty of ways of getting to you, in this world you cannot keep secrets anymore, if they(the government) want them.
remember what ever prove you have hardly anyone would believe you, unless proved to them time and time again, people take alot of convincing.
Not sure how someone ELSE could prove they travelled through time, but I proved to myself that I never would.

If you create a strong gravitational force around yourself or your vehicle time would slow down or come nearly to a stop for YOU. But for those outside the gravitational source, time would flow as normal. When you turned off your gravitational source, time would start flowing again but you would be flowing along in the time that had always been flowing since you turned on your gravitational source.
Going back in time is infinately more difficult but it can be done. We can 'see' back in time much easier than we can travel back in time.
But really, if time travel was destined to ever exist, don't you think we would know by now? Because someone in the future would have come back to say the year 2000 and proved it or at least made an official claim?
Or maybe there is time travel in the future but there's some reason why they don't want to let us in the present know about it. Probably because the state the world is in at the moment, it would start a world war to get hold of the technology.
going back in time and photographing historical figures wouldn't be definitive proof because of the look alike factor.
if you went back in time, etched a message in stone, say "crakeur was here, 01/19/13000000 bce" and then took the media to the location and said carbon date this please, you'd have your proof.

I don't know if a "history text" as you said, is out of the question...I think it would need to be a part of the revelation, but may not stand on its own as absolute proof.
he said that the government may have satelittes to detect such a break in reality or gravity shift or something, that the certain energy involved in the process would be detectable, from space by satelittes.
so we would never know if someone had created some time device, but because of the energy used, it would be detecable, and the nsa or something would be round your place asap, to pick you up.
Crakeur - people question carbon dating, you see you will never be able to get everyone to believe, not without showing equipment on tv, doing the time thing and coming back to them, which is something that would never be alllowed.
I don't think time travel is possible. At least to the past. The reason for this, is that it would be impossible to go back let's say one year in time.
If it were possible, that theoretically I would be able to meet myself.
Now suppose I did meet my past self, and did'nt like him and killed him. Since I am still me, and the only me, I would be dead, and could not be here in the future to travel back in time to kill myself, because I would already be dead by my future self's hand.
I suppose a dinosaur would be better, as we can't have any chance of cloning them like we may be able to a mammoth. Maybe a small one would be best.
although an accurate prediction/knowledge of a forthcoming natural disaster (probably an earthquake, as they are hardest to predict).
