Is time continuous or discrete? Is even this question a valid question? If you say, it all depends on resolution then assume the best possible resolution achievable. If it is discrete, then what about space? More specifically, what about space-time?

Thank you..that is a good explanation of "why it's not discrete" But i am asking what if time IS discrete. We know space is not. So what becomes of Space-time? – Nix Jul 9 '13 at 8:52
