The Time Travel Dilemma

Time travel is one of my favorite subjects. Now it seems that a new twist in the possibilities has been announced. Time travel has now been theorized to be possible, except that one cannot change the past. I first read the news at About.com in the Paranormal section with this article from NewScientist.com.

Then, another article from BBC News was listed in MSN’s Alan Boyle’s Cosmic Log. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/4097258.stm This announcement, if it could be proven, ruins many good science fiction books, stories, and movies. So much for the good old days when dreams and imagination were not the truths of reality. What will happen when there is nothing left that scientists cannot “prove” in some way? What will become of our tales? What will become of us? Will the classic SF become nothing more than ridiculous humor?
