 Pro No, this isn't a troll debate. This is legit. Resolution: Time travel is possible and can be done in modern day society.I define time travel as either going forward or backwards in time. Meaning that I can either cause myself to get older (going forward in time), or cause myself to get younger (going backwards in time). BOP is on me. First round is acceptance.Report this Argument Con I accept zadaris challenge let me inform everyone that this is my first debateReport this Argument Pro Thanks for my opponent for accepting and all that jazz. But seeing as I'm on a time envelope that's rapidly closing on me (screw my parents for taking away my laptop), I'll go ahead and skip the formalities. Time travel has been a fantasmic thought in the heads of all of the great scientific thinkers throughout all the ages. Is there a way that we can go back in time to visit our forefathers and change history? Is there a way to go forward into the future and see where humanity will be in one hundred, five hundred years? The answer may not be buried as deep in science fiction as some may think, as the answer lays in simple physics. Let's enter the world of time dilation for a moment. Time dilation explains a special relativity principle that explains under certain circumstances where time slows in relation to a specific frame of motion. A popular example is if I were standing in a train car, and my opponent were standing outside the train car, our views of the rays of light coming out of a lightbulb would be different, as his perspective would be in a different frame of motion from mine. When we achieve time dilation, time for us slows down and is continuing at normal pace for the rest of the world. We simply don't notice it, as our perception is limited to our frame of motion, yet we can observe it through a few different principles in quantum physics, namely the Twin Paradox.>> The Twin Paradox <> Application to Modern Day <

TheMrkanyewest01 took a smart route during round 2 in my opinion.

Not in that sense xD

LOL, we are always time traveling, Zaradi. :p
Posted by Zaradi 5 years ago
Yeah, I'll make it. But I made a mistake. My argument explains time travel to the future, not to the past. Appologies.

Wow, this is gonna be close. I'll have lunch period tomorrow to do this, and even that will have, like, an hour left on the time. This is gonna be close...

In the non-trap way of moving forward. But I can prove backwards.
Posted by martianshark 5 years ago
Traveling forwards in time, by that definition, is of course possible. But I have no idea how you're going to prove traveling backwards is possible.
