In a Million Years

The  past and future can't be changed...right?


Johnson & Locke

Doctors Johnson and Locke are two scientists who invent the Timatron, a machine which is capable of moving a human through time and through space.   So, a lowly scientist in Atlanta, circa 2145, can go see the birth of Christ in Bethlehem, circa 0000.  

Locke postulates that time is a brick wall so if we move or remove a brick, the wall will crumble and fall taking the fate of mankind with it.

Johnson views time as a mighty river.  If a man threw a stone into it, there would be a momentary break in its surface but then the river of time will go on as it has always gone on with only a mildly different shape of the future.

Who is right?  Is it worth the risk?
