my point is if i say there is no past or future and no time and the world is in a timeless state yet an everchanging state it cannot be disproved...
If there is only a present 'now', no past, no future, then the existance of time is meaningless, is this what you mean?
Well, that's one way of seeing it.
In this case, the 'free will' exist. I'm the only one responsible to what will happen. If the future exist already, and time is only the road to it, then I don't have any 'free will'.
I like the idea of 'free will', therefore I like your idea of 'no time'.
When my boss wants me to do some impossible thing, then I just say "I do it in no time!" and in a deeper sense I'm right!
