Someone mentioned the video evidence and a vast quantity of jesus etc. I think I'm going to steal half of this idea and not the Jesus part for a whole host of reasons.
I assume a futuristic recording device that I also assume would be able to be played on the available media in the present....So you take a city, say New York. One with a lot going on, a lot of history and well known throughout the world. You take the camcorder and strap it to your head so it records everything you see...You then proceed to take a tour doing anything and everything. Whilst doing it you would narrate the video, explaining things or the differences in a logical and easy to understand manner, continuously. Take in as much as possible and explain as much as possible.
Set up a bunch of news reporters with cameras...allow as may people to view the event in person as possible...perhaps in a football stadium. Set up the time machine and send someone with a watch say 10 minutes into the future. For that matter use a dog like in the movie so everyone will realize the watch was not changed by human hand. The news reporters film everything including the return of the time machine and seeing the watches (clocks) are exactly 10 minutes apart.
what about going into the future getting the cure for cancer, coming back, give your self cancer, and then cure it?
or would that be a miracle?
1- i would give the dates of the next 5 upcoming thunderstorms
2- i would note the exact time lightning goes (timing it to the second)
3- i would take note of where lightning struck on the ground (if there was damage)
Now when you give someone the exact day of a storm, the exact number of lightning strikes to the second and also where they hit the ground (if some damge was done)...well, that would go a long way to proving time travel for me...There is way too much randomness in a thunderstorm for someone to be 100% right about the numbers of lightning strikes (to the second, mind you) in a storm i think...
I see many ways suggested in which time travellers could provide proof that they have traversed time.
Something to keep in mind though, is perhaps timewalkers/timetravellers would not feel any need to provide proof, perhaps they would NOT want or need to be known as time travellers....
Perhaps it is in our best interests, and theirs if they remain ambigious and/or unseen.
The first thing that sprung to mind was a coin. Bring back a coin minted at some point in the future. Easy to find, hard to fake. It would only need to be from the year after the traveler arrived.
Give me a memory. Travel back in time and find me. Get in my face and say, "I'm from the future and you have to remember this moment cause you will meet me in twenty years and i'll look exactly the same as I do now. I do this to prove to you that I am a time travelor."
Instead of focusing on the future I would focus on the past. knowing the present I would find a famous photo from the history books or whatever and make my way into but to the point where I stick out nicely and can be easily idenified. Also if I was really worried about proving it was me wear a piece of clothing the was from this era...
maybe a picture of me and einstien in his patent office with nike cap on...chances are it will end up in some book printed well before I was born...the cap will go unnoticed most lickley till I point it out so somone cant say its just somone that looks like me....
Coming from the future i would know this person i want to prove my time travel to so i would manage to get a drop of blood from her first child (that she would have in the future) and when that child is born i would get the blood "from the future" tested to prove that i had seen her child in the future.
Re-membering experiences is the proof of and proof that time travel Exists. We all have what We refer to as "memory"...."Mental time travel" is the act of "re-membering"...If it can Be done in Our minds then it Exists all ready
I think our subconscious minds already have access to the answers to the questions we seek....Everything we create, we create with a shattered consciousness. We have a conscious mind, and a subconscious mind. So, although we are not always conscious of how our subconscious does have input into everything we create, our subconscious mind may indeed influence everything we create, to include language.
I am currently entertaining the idea that at least one species that is visiting us are ants or ant hybrids from another place, another time, and/or another dimension.
I think our subconscious minds, or perhaps another mechanism within us, has encoded this idea into our very words .....
Is Earth under Alien survailants?
Is the light of the world really brilliant and radiant?
When it is all said and done, perhaps we will see the evidants is consistant. And, yes, i think this may be very important.
DNA is the answer - though not that of Jesus. Jesus' soul was what made him miraculous, not his DNA. Besides, there is nothing to compare that to to prove that it actually is the DNA of Christ - dude had no children.
if someone where able to come from the future and give a convincing enough story that the parents of a child (someone who is currently too young to have children of their own) to have a DNA test performed and prove that he was the child of the child - that would work. The tests could be carried out quietly until the traveller decided to reveal the truth - most likely through some form of mass media - I am thinking a talk show like Oprah, she has a world wide audience. The scientists can back you up and the tests can be duplicated.
Clones would work in the same way - their DNA would be identical to that of the traveller, siblings, even fraternal twins have different DNA, clones do not. It only takes a few days or weeks for a DNA test to be conducted and would absolutely prove that you are telling the truth.
you give me your great grand father address and I promise to come back with a photo of him with me in front of his house holding a newspaper of that year...I go I take the pictures and the picture with your great grand father...
yep but, what if britneys parents see that photo of you with her teeshirt, then the parents would have changed and britney may not have come to be the star she was today.
like for insatnce, say if you knew that your life may go in a certain way, and you may not like that. you may do something to see if you can stop it and turn it in another direction. the problem is that you cannot control all the forces that control ones lifes.
look at the back to the future movie, it exaggerates how much one incident can change entire lifes, and send everything in totally different directions. remember how marty, just brought that book and thought that it would be just a simple thing to change the outcome of the future.
also if you have the sims, look at the posibilities on a small level one small decision could lead to. or another way to look at it, say if you go out tonight and meet the person you were meant to stay the rest of your life with, but say if you did not go to that place, how would your life change, it may go of in disatourios consequenses.
the problem about stuff in the trying to prove it by taking stuff from the future or by filming the future, is that if you show something to someone in the past, that may change the future.
that is why i said film 500 hours, of people in a language that no one but scholars understand today. how long would it take you to fake 500 hours of film, on cgi, and how would you get the dialects right, and all the people, and the right conditions.
