It is a can of worms indeed.
No time travel, and we can explain it with pseudo-science.

I think the island does have a mini-black hole like thing that is bending time/space.
It's all relative.

I also think Ben exaggerates. He says he lived his whole life on the island, but he came there as a boy.
Yes, over and over they say that the island has all these "unique properties" that make it possible to do such and such a task.  Man you got me thinking about that one limerick...something like
"there once was a man named blight
who traveled faster than light
he took off one day
in a relative way
and returned on the previous night"
Anyhow.

*giggle snort* Did you make that up?

On tonight's recap the writers showed a pop up saying that when Daniel comments on the light it is a "clue to the islands unique properties".  Regardless of why - it must be real important....

If Amelia is the Amelia Earhart, she has not aged. Well than why does Ben, Walt, Alex aaron etc age. How does it account for some not(Richard?) and some not. Amelia came from off island, so she should have the same reactions as other people born off island. ( I believe Amelia and the dude with her will end up being Adam and Eve)


Sorry to be a pest and keep backtracking, but who is Amelia again?  I tried looking her up in the Index but the links seem to be broken -- I keep getting "fatal error" messages...  :-\
