  • Oct 7 2012: Time travel did once exist, because a soldier from the distant future told me the story personally. It was invented in the year 2152 by a Swiss inventor. Unfortunately it was quickly militarized, and was ultimately the cause of a massive global war that lasted the next 50 years, taking humanity to the brink of existence. So in order to save mankind, special forces were sent back in time to kill the parents of the inventor, therefore saving the world from a catastrophic war. Time travel was then never invented, and because it had never been invented, no one has any recollection of it ever existing.
