    If one twilight Zone episode is any indication, why bother. Guy goes back, is unable to:
    1) Get the Captain of the Lusitania to change course
    2) Convince anybody in Hiroshima what is going to happen
    3) Kill Hitler

    So he moves back to 1881, hears Garfield was shot. Oh well, too bad. But his book on local history mentions a fire, caused by a lantern flung from a runaway wagon…Out for a walk, he sees a salesman. With a wagon, and a lantern. Asks him to move, salesman refuses, argue, fight, horse gets spooked, runs, lantern flies off.

    So the time traveler was the cause, simply a part of history that his own book noted had happened back in 1881.

    Science fiction has a gazillion time-travel stories. All their variations were nicely summarized by Paul J. Nahin in his excellent book Time Machines: Time Travel in Physics, Metaphysics, and Science Fiction (2001). He has since written more on the subject in 2011’s Time Travel: A Writer’s Guide to the Real Science of Plausible Time Travel . In addition to the fiction part, he goes into detail about the real science that may underlie actual time travel, if we’re ever able to achieve it.

    More than likely each alteration will cause splits in the time line and you would never know if your succeeded for things would remain unchanged in your own time line.

    I think they are from a parallel universe split off when they time traveled back.

    Oh yeah, it’s a fun and make-believe job until somebody goes and makes it real. And then it becomes work.

    Sounds familiar? Our Government officially denies the existence of UFO’s and Aliens. Yet Congress passed a law making it a federal crime to actually go up to a UFO (if you can find one) and physically touch it!
