Jack et al, caused the incident which will lead Radzinsky to draw the blast door map after the completion of the Swan, tho in a smaller form due to the heightened radioactivity. In this case Jack et al had to go back in time in order for the timeline to remain constant. C leads to A leads to B leads to C - what happened happened.

Jacob is now "dead" in the future. However although 2007 forward has a deceased Jacob, it doesn't mean that a past Jacob couldn't come forward and become the new Jacob. The one person remaining constant through it all is Richard who probably has more power/influence than we realize.

I don't think the island was destroyed - we not only have the power of electromagnetism, but there is also the temporal aspects. Could be one "cancels" out the other to maintain balance. We shall see

Well, forgoing all of this wonderful logic, ummm there has to be an island next season otherwise there will be no war and well, the writers are really the ones who kept going.

Sorry just had to chime in
