TextAugustine of Hippo wrote that time exists only within the created universe, so that God exists outside time; for God there is no past or future, but only an eternal present; this, of course, would require God to exist only outside the present universe. One need not believe in God in order to hold this concept of eternity: for example[original research?], an atheist mathematician can maintain the philosophical tenet that numbers and the relationships among them exist outside time, and so are in that sense eternal.
Depend of what aim you give to the words.The truth is only one ,but we don't have eyes of mind to see it.

Seeing, tasting, touching, smelling and hearing all occur now, presently. It is God who does all this, he can do it no other time because there is no other time. Past and future have never been experienced ever.
