  • Time is a concept, it doesn't exist.

    People have invented time to keep track of past events and predict future events, how can time exist? Simple it can't, things just move on there own, if time were to exist, it would be possible to time travel, and we would see it, and different species might experience time in different speeds.

  • It's All Relative

    Time, as we measure it, is just a relative scale that measures the actual passing of time. We could have created a system of 10-hour days with 144 minutes each, or 240 hours with 6 minutes each. Either way, we just have a scale of measuring it. Is it really that big of a deal?

  • It is not a man made construct more like a man made measurement

    This measurement was made to keep track of things. Not actually a thing you can interfere with.....Like numbers. Time is just a concept of life help us keep track of things. Some people right now think it is a actual thing you can interfere with and travel through.It is just something we can use to simplify things.

  • Man Made Construct

    Someone born on Mars but living by earth clock would never understand why there are 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, and 24 hours in a day. Mars has 687 Earth Days, and even that is a calculation compared to earths time. 24 hours and 37 minutes in a day. The whole calculation of time would be thrown off to this.

  • Nooooooo noooooooo nooooo

    I found a jacket, its mine now, its bootiful, its DDR
    I like dogs
    Dogs are needed just like my jacket
    My jacket is more bootiful and worth more than time
    But, guess what? Dogs, and jackets
    Jackets with dogs on them and dogs wearing those jackets with dogs on them...

  • Time is man made

    Pretty obvious. No one knows when the world was created, so of course someone had to invent it. There is absolutely no way this earth just randomly invented something we have all became slaves to over time. Time is man made, and there is proof that it is. . .

  • Time was for the order

    Time was constructed to keep order of the universal life styles that were arising. You can dream up a lifetime during your sleep but that dream may only last "two minutes" now tell me how relevant that is. Without time we would be living in the now because we would not know what past.

  • Position vs. Time

    Time of the year, time of the day, time of the season... Time is quantified by our observations based upon the position of tangible and intangible objects. Time is not a constant in reality and is only quantifiable due to the position of the observer. If you were standing in new york and i was standng in tokyo would the sum of time as you experience it equal it's sum as i experience it? No - because the sum of your time is relative to your position to the sun
    just as my time is relative to my position to the sun. Therefore, time is a man made instrument used to quantify the position of objects in comparison to each other. What would happen to time if our existence on the same plane created a reaction that altered the reality of the space between our two positions? Would our reality alter the plane(s) on which we occupy? Would one possibly cease to exixt on that plane of observation and come to occupy another plane? Would an observer on the original plane then be able to observe the position of the original object in its new plane or only be able to infer its position based upon the knowledge of its existence and how it reacts to the other object?

  • Time is Man Made

    Before the humans, or even Earth, time did not exist. The substitute for this was actions and items. This means that the "time" was marked by significant events and not seconds minutes or hours. Time does not pass without people to measure it just like there is no sound if there are no living things to hear it. The time that we have now is relative to us, for example , photons shouldn't experience any "time" at all because they are moving at light speed.

  • Depends on how you define time

    I think the answer to this question very much depends on the way we define time. One could define time as an interval between to events. Here the quantification of an interval is definitely man made. However, I see time more abstract as the change of things itself. For me no time would mean no change in anything. Therefore I say time itself is not a man made construct, since things changed even before we existed. Nevertheless the quantification of intervals in time is man made.

  • Time is a measurement

    Sure, the measurements of time are manmade. Actual time though is not. Humans figured out that it takes the earth 24 hours to rotate once, therefore they named it one day. Humans broke down the measurements we use for time. Remember just because we name something doesn't mean we created it

  • Time will exist until/if forever ends....

    Modern humans have only displayed behaviours like time keeping, before clocks by the position of the sun in the sky & the waning & movement of the moon, for about 50,000 years not bilions of. But time or rather our perception of it according to our watches & mobile phones is really just our measurement of it, based still on the movements above us & of the earth. It quantifies it for us. But time goes on regardless of it being measured or observed or not. It always has ever lurching forward. Who knows if one day we get to play with it? Worm holes into the past? Parallel universes? Who knows? Maybe its a continuous loop of destruction & recreation, no beginning no end. Therefore time is not man made, it exists irrespective of time pieces & time measurements.

  • Space isn't manmade; therefore, time isn't manmade

    Yes, we invented seconds, minutes, months, etc. We also invented feet, meters, acres, etc. Saying that we invented time is like saying we invented space. They both exist and are dimensions of the universe (3 of space,1 of time). Just because time isn't physical (unlike space) doesn't mean that we made it up.

  • Time is not man made

    Sure the way define time (secounds, minutes, hours, years) is man made. But without humans here to define it, a progression of events would still occur only no one would be there to define them. Also, everything needs time to develop such as planets and what not so without time there wouldn't be anything from the start.

  • Everything will happen at once

    If time was man made, how was earth created. It took a lot of TIME to make earth, and no humans were alive back then. Hours, minutes, second, yes, they're man made, but time itself, past, present, future, it's impossible for it to be man made, if it was, then who controls it then, and how did they make it without time...

  • Get a Grip

    It's difficult to understand the debate on this. Time is a necessary ingredient for us to understand our experience, much like space. To think that time is a man made construct is akin to thinking that a video camera was created by the movie it filmed. Perhaps its the confusion of our arbitrary measurement of time, which is man made, but that doesn't mean the object that is being measured is man made.

  • Time existed before clocks did!

    The first mechanical clock made ever was made in 1656. Do we call "1656" the dawn of time? I didn't think so. Anyway, if time didn't exist then nothing would be able to move. Yet we see things move everyday. This concludes that time does exist and is NOT a man-made construct.
