#1 Swiss Watch Found In An Ancient Chinese TombWhen Chinese archaeologists found a giant coffin in a 400-year-old tomb in Shangsi County in December 2008, They found something that they could not believe. Inside was a Swiss engraved watch that had stopped at 10:06. Since these watches were not in existence 400 years ago, it led many people to believe that someone had time traveled from the future to the day that the tomb was closed up and put the watch inside. Others believe that the watch was digitally added to the photo to try to prove that time travel is indeed possible. Regardless of the difference of opinions, this photo has turned up on several websites that try to prove that time travel is possible.
#2 The Time Traveling Man This is a photo that has appeared on the Virtual Museum of Canada’s website. It is a photo of the reopening of the South Fork Bridge in British Colombia in the early 1940’s. Upon first glance, everything looks normal for a picture in the 40’s. When you look closer, you can see a man in the back row who doesn’t seem to fit in. All of the men in the photo are wearing hats, which was common for men back then. This man is not wearing a hat. He is dressed like men dress today. He has long, messy hair, which is today’s style for many men. He is also wearing sunglasses that you wouldn’t have seen people wearing back then along with a shirt with a printed logo. This picture has led many people to believe that this man is a time traveler, who went back in time to witness this moment himself.
#3 Woman On a Cell Phone In 1928Everyone knows that the cell phone was not around in 1928. They didn’t even have cordless phones back then. This photo was taken when Charlie Chaplin’s film, The Circusbonus was released at Los Angeles’ Grauman’s Chinese Theater in 1928. In one of the photos, you can see a woman who appears to be talking on a cell phone. Most people believe that since cell phones don’t exist that this is proof that time travel is possible and this woman went back in time to see the premiere of the movie. Time travel skeptics believe that the woman was holding a portable hearing aid. Back then, the technology was not what it is today and ear trumpets were used to help the hard of hearing, hear better. True time travel believers don’t agree with the hearing aid theory.
#4 A Woman On a Cell Phone In 1938This is another photo of a woman holding a cell phone during a time when cell phones did not exist. It is a black and white photo of a group of women walking out of a building. One of the women is smiling and it appears that she is talking on a cell phone. This has given true believers even more of a reason to believe in time travel. One woman, who doesn’t believe in time travel has an explanation for the photo. She says that the woman is her grandmother, who was 17 years old at the time and working for Dupont. According to the woman, the factory was experimenting with wireless phones and the woman was given one for a week to test out. There are many people who don’t believe this story, however, since it is hard to believe that wireless phones were being tested as far back as 1938.
#5 CD’s in the 1800’sThis is a painting from the 1800’s. The painting shows a man taking a CD out of a box. Since CD’s weren’t in use until the 1980’s, many people believe that the man in this photo traveled to the 1800’s from the future to show off his amazing invention. Since there is always someone out there who is trying to debunk time travel, there is an explanation for this photo. The non-believers say that this is just a typical box with a glass cover. Since the top of the box is resting on the man’s chest, this theory could very possibly be wrong.
#6 Time Traveling CelebritiesJohn Travolta and Nicholas Cage starred together in the hit film Face/Off. It also appears that the two men have traveled back in time to have their photos taken. In 2011, a few pictures from the 1800’s were put on sale on eBay. Both of the men in the photos look identical to Travolta and Cage. Many people believe that the seller had the photos altered to get some attention and to possibly raise the price. According to the seller, this was the condition that he found the pictures in. People who believe in time travel are sure that the two men went back in time after filming Face/Off to get their photo taken, only to have them turn up today.
#7 An Astronaut Sculpture On An Old ChurchThis is a sculpture that is on the top of a church that was built between 1600 and 1800. The sculpture looks like a man wearing an astronaut suit. Since space travel did not exist between 1600 and 1800, it is proof that one of the people building the church was from the future, and created this sculpture. People who don’t believe in time travel say that one of the designers must have had a wild imagination and often thought about time travel. If this is the case, it really is a coincidence because the suit on the sculpture very closely resembles the space suits of today.
