The world has changed irrevocably over the past 100 years. Technology has come to dominate our lives in a way that people in 1919 could have never predicted, and the average person spends 20 hours online every week – an amount which is likely to only increase.

Now, an alleged time traveler from the year 5000 AD has revealed what life in the future will be like and simultaneously given humanity a disturbing warning. Identified only as “Edward”, he has backed up his outlandish claims with a photograph that he says was taken 3,000 years in the future.

In the viral video where Edward reveals that he is a time traveler, he explains that he was part of a top-secret experiment in 2004. This experiment allowed him to travel to the future, and, while he was there, he decided to obtain photographic evidence of what he saw.

The photograph depicts Los Angeles and it appears to be completely submerged in water.

This submergence was the result of global warming Edward said to Apex TV. According to him, the ice caps will completely melt in the future, something which will force us humans to live on elevated wooden platforms instead of the surface of the Earth.

“It was unbelievable,” he said. “I was standing on a huge wooden platform. Not only me, houses, buildings, of course, all made from wood. And after, I realized it was the same city, Los Angeles, but underwater (sic).”

Edward’s claims come just a week after another time traveler, Noah, passed a lie detector test, proving he is from the year 2030.
