    Strange Accounts From Time Travelers and Their Bizarre Evidence

    Time travel. It is a staple of science fiction and has long captured the imagination. It seems as if that is the realm in which it should stay, within movies and books, and entertaining yarn but far from reality. Yet in this day and age of the Internet there have been people given a voice that they never had before, and cases have come out of the woodwork of people who actually claim to be time travelers. Not only that, but some of them actually say that they have the evidence to prove it. Outlandish, surreal, and always bizarre, here are some cases of self-professed time travelers who say they can prove it.

    A very strange individual came forward in November of 2017 with quite a bizarre and colorful tale to tell, and would go on to become quite the media and viral video sensation at the time. The man calls himself Noah, and claims that he is in fact from the future, the year 2030 to be exact, becoming stranded here in the present due to a “failed mission” in which he got “fired” and stuck in our present and decided to tell the world of the realities of time travel and of his experiences in a series of videos on YouTube. Of the machine that he used to jump through time, he has explained to news.com.au:

    The range of stories he has to tell of these adventures is as outlandish as it is entertaining. Noah claims that he was recruited into the government’s top secret time travel program at a very young age, and that he regularly took anti-aging pills to fight the aging effects that time travel had on his body, saying “When you time travel you gain time. When I was in junior high and I was a time traveler, I had to take these pills to make sure I don’t grow old while time travelling.” He also has made numerous predictions about the future, including that Trump will win a second term of presidency, that the granddaughter of Martin Luther King Jr., Yolanda Renee King, will become president at some point, and many others. According to Noah there will be a cure for cancer, that scientists will live on Mars in 2028, incidentally the same year we figure out time travel, and that we get into contact with extraterrestrials.

    It all sounds pretty vague, rather unimaginative and not really that hard to guess, but what really made his story take off in the news is that he supposedly passed a lie detector test on all of this. He has also shown footage that he claims is from the future. At one point during his interview on YouTube he produces a smartphone and shows a futuristic looking city with red clouds ominously hanging over it, which he claims to be Las Vegas in the year 2120. It looks pretty questionable, as the video is stationary and doesn’t show much that couldn’t be altered through digital manipulation, but Noah has other
    “evidence” as well, such as an X-ray image showing a device within his hand that he says is integral for the time travel process, and he has claimed that he has even better evidence that he sadly cannot share for fear of triggering a paradox.

    Still from “Noah’s” video

    Throughout his whole video interview his face is obscured as he says he is in danger of being assassinated for what he is telling the rather skeptical interviewers, and many confessed time travelers do so. He also explains that he is alone, and that although he has family in the present he cannot meet them out of danger of meeting his younger self and causing a massive paradox. It is all a completely off the wall tale that has understandably drawn a lot of criticism, not only for its sheer bizarreness, but also from the fact that the video appears on the Apex TV YouTube channel, a paranormal research organization which is popular for its numerous time traveler stories and which many accuse of being full of hoaxes.

    YouTube in general, and Apex TV in particular, are fertile grounds for such wild tales, and it is in this unchecked medium that alleged time travelers have come out of the woodwork. One is an anonymous man who says he worked out of London, where there was a secret laboratory called Globus, involved with testing and experimenting with all manner of bizarre technology, such as teleportation devices and of course time travel. He claims that the mysterious machine used to travel through time is called “The Time Queen,” and that a main component to its inner workings is powerful stone that emits some sort of alien, misunderstood energy. He has explained of this Time Queen:

    The machine was used to travel to the past in the United States, Russia and Britain, and frequently to 17th century China, but that certain limitations of the technology meant he could only travel a maximum of 4,000 years back in time. It all sounds completely off the rails, but this time traveler claims to have evidence in the form of a photo of a Swiss made watch that was allegedly found in the tomb of a 17th century Chinese soldier and which he says was a watch he lost on one of his many jaunts through time, of which he would say:

    It is actually striking how many of these self-professed time travelers bring forth what they say is evidence of their time bending adventures, such as photographs, videos, and others. Another man called simply Edward claimed in a video to have been part of a top secret time travel experiment in 2004, and that his travels had taken him far into the future to the year 5000, when much of the planet had been submerged due to global warming and vast wooden cities floated upon the seas of what once was. One of these cities doomed to a watery grave was apparently Los Angeles, California, a fact which Edward “proves” with a photo he produces from his pocket that he claims shows the submerged city but is actually pretty hard to make out. Edward explains of this photo to The Sun, “I was standing on a huge wooden platform. Not only me, houses, building of course all made from wood. And after, I realized it was the same city, Los Angeles, but under water.”

    [​IMG]
    Edward’s photo

    There is also the claim from a time traveler calling himself John, from the year 4,000. John says that he has been living in this present for the past 6 years, and that in his home time he is the president of a company that produces flying cars, and that their use of AI had resulted in a potential threat to humanity. According to John, in the year 4000 all birds have been wiped out in order to reduce the danger to the widely used flying cars, and that animals in general, even dogs and cats, are rare. It is due to concerns over the spread of AI that he says he has traveled back to the past, and as evidence of all of this he has shown a picture of what appear to be spider-like robots putting together a future vehicle called the “DR-18.”

    Similarly, to John is a man identified as Alexander Smith, who says he is one of the first time travelers and appears in his video looking decidedly disheveled and harried. Smith then goes on to say that the world is in dire danger from AI running amok, and that global warming and floods are also a prominent threat. As proof of his claims he produces a photo from his crumpled suit and holds it up, saying that it is a picture of a city center form the year 2118. The photo looks very blurry and indistinct, and he assures us that this is merely an artifact from the time traveling process, not in any way because it could be a hoax. There is also the photo presented by an unidentified Greek man who in 2017 claimed that he had been recruited by a professor for time travel experiments. One of these experiments saw him launched to the year 10000, where there was a war raging between humans and robots. This man also shows a picture of this future landscape, but it is not clear what it is supposed to be of, and of course the low quality is blamed on the effects of time travel.

    [​IMG]
    The picture from the year 10000

    It’s not only photographs or video clips that have been offered up as evidence by time travelers either. One man calling himself W.D. Davis says he is from the year 2200, which he paints a colorful picture of indeed. According to him, in this future not only have all diseases been cured, but humans live on Mars and in great underwater cities, and that we peacefully coexist with aliens that can change shape at will. Davis, who claims to be 103 years old, said that in the future there are “miracle food pellets,” one of which can sustain an adult for a week, and he presented one of these pellets as proof. He says that in the future these pellets will be available to people all over the planet and have solved world hunger. Unfortunately, he would not allow it to be analyzed due to the paradoxical ramifications it could have, so I suppose we will just have to take his word for it.

    Another anonymous time traveler is a woman who says she is from the year 3780, and that the use of the time technology is based on chips that these travelers have implanted into their arms. These devices supposedly do something to warp the space-time continuum, and she even produces one of the chips as evidence, which she calls a “skin.” It looks sort of like a big computer chip, and it is hard to tell if that is exactly what it is. The woman rambles for some time on the technology, but it is very hard to understand, and in the end it is hard to tell if any of it makes sense or not.

    In the end it is hard to know how much truth any of these bizarre and quite frankly outlandish claims have. It is unfortunate that many such cases come to light on these YouTube videos, a place that is a magnet for those looking to get attention and pull hoaxes, yet there are plenty of people who give these claims serious thought, and they have become a hotbed for discussion and conspiracy theories. It is equally regrettable that the “evidence” that these supposed time travelers present in these cases is circumstantial at best, and clearly faked at worst. Yet is still gets a lot of play in discussions and debates on time travelers. Ultimately, if time travel really does exist, then these cases certainly don’t prove it in any way. It is up to the reader to make up their own mind.

    John Titor was total BS. By Titor’s take, There would be WW III on 2015. Enough said.

    The stories of these so-called “time travelers” vary greatly and do not jive for the most part. You could hazard a guess that most of these people are basically BS artists looking for attention.

    Perhaps his arriving in the past prevented that from occurring or postponed it?...Time paradoxes?...

    The story was a low grade crock of shit, lame and poorly conceived with obvious political motives. It was easily debunked at the time. It has not gotten any better with age.

    I've never seen anyone who likes the story (or anyone else for that matter) deal with the fact "Titor" made his appearance a matter of months before 9-11 and made no allusions whatsoever to the calamity. I would have thought that would have given some of the enthusiasts a clue. Yes, I know, timelines yada yada yada. I'll take Back to the Future, thank you very much.

    time travel is such a strange concept.
    Let's say Titor is real. How much changed by his visit? did his very presence alter his own future?
    strange thoughts.

    Yeah I don't buy into Titor's crap but I think if technology were created to time travel I doubt anyone can change the past they remember, if someone went back in time I think it would be a parallel timeline split off, any changes he or she made would go off on its own tangent and not affect the original timeline he or she departed from...

    I do not believe it either, but it was a better story...to a point.

    Exactly.
    One's own past cannot be changed. And any visiting of the past would be in a way whereby it could NOT be effected in any way, shape or form. But only viewed. It would be great for future historians and records recording of past times, events and eras.

    I constantly daydream about exactly that. There are some places and times I'd love to be able to just hang around & watch.

    Texas School Book Depository
    Ford's Theater

    The back seat of Betty and Barney's car ....

    As much as I adore '57 Chevies, I'll pass on the Hill's car ride. I would like to see just what went on though, from a bit of a safer distance. Don't want those little buggers following me home.

    Interesting idea to be able to go back and just look, without having to worry about stepping on a butterfly or boinking your own grandmother and causing problems. Just wondering if anyone else has a list.

    I'd add these to my admittedly geeky list:

    - walk into the Argonne with Cpl.York

    - be standing next to Neil Armstrong and verify if aliens were watching and giving him the finger

    - watch them film some of my favorite Star Trek episodes

    - hang around Patterson & Gimlin on that fateful day. I know we can only watch but I'd like to be able to leave
    a Little Debbie fruit pie 'cause, you know, I heard they like them ....

    - stand with the "famously profane" Freeman McGilvery on the Plum Run line at Gettysburg. I know, obscure. But I've heard the man described as "famously profane" too many times and I thought wow, he had such a potty mouth we're still going on about it a century and a half later. Definitely use the Wayback Machine to check him out.

    - maybe I'd go to McMinnville, Oregon and hang out on the Trent farm. Easy enough to just make a tour of all the iconic UFO cases while I'm at it. Think maybe that on at least one of them I'd be noticed? Ausso One would look right at me and ask me how I'm doin' ?

    That's a good list. That time bubble idea is pretty cool.

    I've thought many times I'd like to go back about 35 years, find the current version of me, and have a conversation that begins, "Listen here, dumbass..."

    Also, right around that same time, my dad got a Polaroid photo of something very weird in the sky (no, it's long gone for some reason) so that would be a good scene to stop by and check out.

    I like your mention of Gettysburg. I have been there many times as I live 45 minutes away. If you could stay out of harms way, I would have liked to have witnessed the battle on July 3. When you stand on the battlefield you can almost see how it played out.

    As an aside. My wife and I went to a Gettysburg reenactment one year. There were 10 field pieces per each side being fired. Damn, it was loud and the ground shook. Supposedly there were over 200 cannon on the battlefield that July 3 day. Small wonder soldiers didn’t want to charge forward.

    I've been to Gettysburg several times but live about 5 hours north. Cool place, love it - and the Dobbin House.
    While we're on that topic I also thought that Hubert Dilger, 1st Ohio Light Artillery would be an interesting guy to hang around. Poor guy happen to be standing there amongst his twelve pounders to the west of the Chancellor House when what appeared to be every Confederate in the world came boiling up the road towards him. There he was two months later when Archer's division came booming over the Herr ridge down the - I think - Cashtown pike. Poor guy had a Forrest Gump knack for being in a bad spot. While McGilvery had yet to win his enduring reputation as a consummate swearer this poor guy already full well knew what to do with a pocket full of primers. He was perfectly attuned to strange noises crashing through the brush in a way most of us aren't - in another lifetime he might have made the perfect Bigfoot hunter!

    For me I would want to go back far enough to see who the hell left some of those out-of-place artifacts reported like the Moon-Shaft artifact foe example.
