What is time? Is time the past, present and future?

Time in reality can't be the future because the universe may implode tomorrow and time will stop. But do tell me how we measure future time.

I figured you would have no answer for you never have an answer of any importance. So I will give you an answer;

Time is a real however it has many facets and it may not be possible to nail down our perception of time to one phenomenon. We feel the flow of time from the unknown future to the fleeting moments of the present and in the memories of the past. The flow of time persists in stories and recorded historical events suggesting that past is just a recorded memory. The present which gives us the real feel of time cannot be measured while the past has measurable durations comparable to recorded and unrecorded events again suggesting the connection of time to memory and that the feeling of the passage of time is an illusion. The future canít be measured in time for you canít measure what has not happened.

Measurement of time seems to involve comparing a known motion with an unknown motion. The feeling of flow of time possibly emerges as our mind tries to make sense of the world filled with motion and change. Time is most likely is a concept created by our mind by merging consciousness, memories, anticipation, perception, change and motion. There however is a real underlying process and there is a cause for this process the exposition of which will bring us to a better understanding of the phenomenon of time.

Dude since you like to talk so much and supposedly know so much. The universe is 13.7 billion years old, the earth 4.7 billion years old. What was there and going on for the 9 billion years before earth was formed?
Of relevance to us?

First generation stars.

The original stars and material of the universe was almost entirely hydrogen and helium with a touch of lithium. The lightest elements.

Heavier elements only formed in the death throes of large gen 1 stars, which then exploded (nova, supernova) and ejected masses of heavier elements. You can look that up for more details. Its a question of the conditions required for heavier element fusion to occur and it only happens in the extreme conditions when massive stars are collapsing as their hydrogen runs out. As they collapse a new round of heavy fusion occurs at even higher temps and pressures and that causes the nova explosion.

Our solar system formed from such a result. Which is why the heavier elements needed for life abound.

Took billions of years of stellar life cycles to even get to a point where biological life as we know it could begin.

yet there is not one teensy shred of evidence to suggest any god, gods or goddesses ever existed, so why would you make such a silly statement?

basically, you are saying a myth like the Easter Bunny created time...
