Overview

Since H.G.Well’s Time Machine, humans have greatly marveled at the prospects of time-travel. Einstein’s Theory of Relativity has now experimentally established that time is a physical dimension to which space is intrinsically connected. The famous Twin Paradox suggests that if a twin brother is put in a spacecraft to travel at a speed somewhat approximate to the speed of light; he may return after 10 years to be 8 years younger than his twin brother who remained on the earth. That does raise theological questions with regard to time in connection to spiritual beings like angels. It certainly forces one to ask, seeing that the physical concept of time cannot be applied to immaterial beings, if it is valid to ask questions like “Why did God put the tree of knowledge in the garden if He knew Adam would sin?”

In this volume, the goal is not to provide a systematic definition and overview of time, but to only consider the various issues connected with it. The volume is a collection of some writings related to this topic over a period of 7 years. The writings are as terse as they can be and, hopefully, will provide the reader with some data for further reflection.
