does time exist?

    No, I mean that nothing has existed before this moment. Our memories are false and history is made up.

    Time may exist as a dimension to be relative to other forces within our own dimensions. But the idea of time is a false term created by humans for ours, and their, own benefit. For humans, most like to have something tangible to observe. Clocks, calendars, watches, and all other time-holders were created by humans to give them something tangible to try and "measure" time with. But the idea of time is still based upon the movements of Heavenly Bodies within our solar system. So essentially humans created time.

    ???well i think time in actuality doesnt exist its just an idea because although things change thats not an example of time
    examples of "change" that are mistaken to be time related
    -age: even if time were frozen your body would still age its just wats due to happen
    -seasons or day/night the seasons change based on the loction of your particular state/city during the earths rotation or watever as far as day and night same thing almost it depends on your placement on earth in opposition to the sun NOT TIME
    long story short time is non-existent just a way to know when night or day is approaching or your birthday, etc..

    its both... time occurs... ie. people age... seasons change, etc. HOWEVER... our markings of time are mearly an illusion created by man to generate the ability to categorize things at certain points.... to clarify what has already happened... and to give a way to organize it....

    Maybe it doesn't actually exist in the way that you describe it. But what about the actual dimension of time? The so-called 4th dimension?

    I personally dont think that time should exist. its something completely made by humans.

    This is one of the most accurate descriptions of time I've read.

    Just like we have up and down, we have future and past.

    Standing on Earth, there's a gravity well, and because of this, a gradient from low gravitational potential (ex. the ground) to high (ex. the cieling). We define up as the direction of increasing potential, down as the decreasing.

    Similarly, we witness a gradient from low total entropy (ex. a glass sitting on a table) to high (ex. that glass having fallen and broken on the floor). The direction of increasing total entropy is called the future, decreasing is called the past.

    Our units of seconds, hours, and minutes used to measure time are no different than our units of meters, kilometers, feet, and miles used to measure space. We invented them to conveniently put arbitrary distances into numbers. In some ways the speed of light could be seen as a conversion factor between distances in space and distances in time.

    Time is a metric that measures which events happen before other events, and which events cause other events. It most definitely does exist, because it's physically impossible for effects to predate causes.

    I'll cut that short, because I don't really want to go off on a special relativity tangent.
