God’s Plan and Time Travel

The cartoon below from SMBC is right at the intersection of religion and a major science fiction trope, namely time travel. Do you think time travel is possible? If so, how would that relate to any particular set of religious beliefs? Fringe and a number of other shows have done interesting things with this.

    I don’t think time travel’s possible since technically the past only exists as a memory and not an actual thing of substance. Plus, if there really are fixed moments in time, then going back in time to prevent disasters from happening might get us stuck in time.
