EPA: We have never seen the like of your flagrant disregard for all regulation, you are single handedly responsible for massive amounts of pollution. We have documentation of your polluting over the last 5 years.
Evil Corporation: Yes well now that we are done with our drilling projects could you reproduce those measurements just to be sure?
EPA: we had highly sensitive instruments, your pollution was beyond obvious - just look at the corpses!
Evil Corporation: So you can't reproduce the data?
EPA: how are we supposed to do that? Use a time machine?
Evil Corporation: well if that's all you got we are done here. Off to expand our corporate rights beyond mere citizenship.
The job of an editor is NOT to just present stories that go along with the group-think of the day. We have Faux News and their ilk for that. Also, if they edit submissions too much "for clarity" the submitter will complain that's not what they wrote. So what are you going to do?
Well, would it be too much to ask for them to fix the typos and make sure the links work?
Despite your low id you must be new here. The answer is yes it's too much.
Nobody 'travels through time' when they get close to lightspeed, it is just the Universe in front of you that gets flatter, like a pancake, so you cover a shorter distance, in the same time. For those, who move about like the light, the Universe is, like, 2D in the direction of movement, so you travel instantaneously.
The rest of the universe ages noticably past
To be fair the Abrahamic religions actually do overlap in many - perhaps the majority - of their cosmological beliefs.
Only if you assume very vague details. When actually questioned in a explicit way, very little actually overlaps. For example is god one entity or three? How about Jesus - prophet or god or neither? When you go beyond a handful of vague agreements you find that there is very little overlap indeed. In fact even within a specific religion or sect it varies by region and even church to church. The whole idea of a personal god, which pretty much always translates into god being exactly as the observer prefers, renders any objective universal coherence invalid.
