A new paper by Sean Carroll asks this question in its title “What if time really exists?” I feel reassurred that Carroll thinks it does (hmmm, let me check my watch… yup, I think it exists, too) but the fact that a paper with this title appears in an archive of theoretical physics papers perhaps illustrates what is so wrong with physics today. To quote Carroll, “when something is so obvious and important, declaring that it isn’t real is sure to win points for boldness”, but have physicists really become this shallow?
