I think you are an honest fellow, with honest questions, that is why I enjoy your posts. I also understand what you are saying and agree, to a degree, with it. You have a problem with people claiming time does not exist, and you should! There is evidence of it all around us.
If I want to witness time, I must look back into the past and I must compare the past to the present. Then I can deduce just how the past has imprinted itself upon the present. The future does not exist except as some abstract concept, so we can set that aside. The present doesn't have any quality of time, unless of course I am currently reflecting upon the past and comparing it to the future. Yet, still, this reflection is happening now, in this present moment. If I reflect upon that reflection, then this is also happening now. So, in this sense, timelessness is all there is and the past is also just an abstract concept like the future is.
Now, I know what you're probably thinking. Evidence of time is all around us, even our own body's are perfect representations of time; they are born, they grow, they age and then they die. To try and speak this away is dishonest at best, and more than likely delusional. So, time exists, yes, but within timelessness. In fact, it may be more correct to say: time cannot be said to exist, neither can timelessness be said to exist, nor can it be said that time does not exist, nor can it be said timelessness does not exist. Maybe Socrates statement: "The only thing I know is that I know nothing.", could be revised to state, "I know nothing, not even whether or not I know something." Hopefully that does not confuse you, it is not a mere play on words. Please do not dismiss it immediately. Be sincere and honest in your inquiry and keep it with you for a little bit, think about it.
