It would be cool to go back to that era and see for yourself how the events depicted in the bible actually happened. Hell, it would be a blast to bounce around the past and see all the things that we assume to have happened.
alright to the thread starter get yourself a camcorder and go and film christ giving one of his sermons and maybe doing some tricks, most today would not even understand his language so it would be hard to say it was a forgery.
go back and film jesus at a frikin seder, celebrating passover. Get him on film doing all the things he, as a jew, would do...then sit mel gibson down and show him the tape and punch him in the mouth.
I'm sure if time travel were possible there would be rules associated with it and they probably wouldn't let just anyone go.
I am willing to be that you could walk into any news office and get someone to listen to your story. They have to. What if you turned down the story and then, a day later it pops up on every other news channel and you turn out to be the moron who said no to the biggest story ever.
i think john is trying to get an answer from the bob lazar and john titor things. interesting, but most of us do not have any way of making a gravitational force that he is talking about.
if time goes round in circles, would you not eventually come back to where you were, originally. maybe thats one way of getting backwards.
Other than the typical "predict the future" as an answer, I would have to say that they need to bring in a newspaper showing the gains and loses for the stock market. If in a day or so, all hundreds of stocks end up being what the paper says, then without a doubt, they're from the future.
I think my idea would work as mentioned on pg 4 and also it doesnt have to be 1 person you prove it too. if you can get yourself in a room with 100 people for an hour like a office, wine bar etc etc then even better
My issue with altering the future with the information gained from a history book was that one little thing could change the entire course of history.
Certain people and events would never happen and for all we know in doing so this time traveler could 'undo' himself.
Bringing a future history book back seems rather out of the question because altering the future course of events would be a catostrophic and earth changing event...even something as small as one person and his loved ones going through a stock crash rich instead of poor.
FEW TOUR the secrets that were given us from the FUTURE
...their presence and recount of future events may have altered the timeline.

But I like the word play. Neat!
I'm trying to figure it out...
Well, I'm only speculating as to what the ramifications of a time travel might cause. But, saying they are not as extreme as "A Sound of Thunder", but still relatively moderate, it could be dangerous to even reveal the existence of time travelers.
I think if somebody came to the present and provided any kind of evidence that proves it is completely possible to invent a time machine, it would probably be invented much more sooner than it was meant to and maybe even by a completely different inventor.
This could in theory screw up the future and that time traveler would never be time traveling in the first place.
Or, supposing our traveler's present (our supposed future) is already set in stone, and nothing he can do in the past can alter his future, it could still be relatively threatening to our own future. It may inspire a scientist to invent the first time machine, instead of fulfilling his destiny of curing cancer.
I think it's also possible to consider that time travel could already have affected us.
Maybe there are some time travelers out there secretly pushing us toward a peaceful path.
For all we know, yesterday was armageddon, but the past was re-written so we now have memories of a present we didn't really experience. Or something.
I guess in that sense, time travel really would be the ultimate weapon. Nuclear Weapons would no longer be scary when you discover an enemy nation has the ability to alter history... to theoretically go back in time and negate your very existence!
