Will fanatic evangelists and republicans ban time travel if it was discovered?
They don't have problems carpet bombing whole countries or shoot black kids on the streets or sterilizing poor black women yet they have serious problems with stem cells.
Assume time travel was developed and needs funding to make it bigger. Will Republikkkans and evangelists fight and bully the inventors and cut their funding and ban their temporal experiments?
This question is very important since a laymen might discover a temporal phenomenon and might not be that naive to think a radical fanatic Christian society like the US are ready to accept this new realty. This thing happened to stem cells and everyone wished they simply moved to a better country not infested with fanatic anti science Christians.
What can time travel science learn from what happened to stem cell research?
What is your advice to PhDs working secretly in time traveling projects?
Which countries are more mentally ready to understand time travel without fanatic evangelist around to delay and bully the project.
