Flaumig: I don't trust Hawking since he said that time travel is impossible because we haven't met any time travelers. I have two issues with that:1) How would we know they were time travelers? Seems like it would be in their best interests to not show up and announce "Hey all, I'm from the future!" Just because we're not aware of the presence of time travelers does not mean they're not present. 1a) This assumes, of course, that Hawking himself isn't a time traveler trying to throw us off the scent.2) It's pretty arrogant to assume that our time period would be of any particular interest to time travelers. Depending on how far out the technology is developed, there could easily be many thousands of much more interesting time periods.
