Who invented time?

Why that's really easy -> Father Time
This occurred because his wife, Mother Nature, was upset about him always being late.
- He was probably playing cards with his buddies and thought "Hey 4 suits, 52 cards - it's a good start"

Time was invented by the Time Lords from planet Gallifrey. Their representative on our galaxy Doctor Who is the superior time controller.

I always thought time was invented by the Witch Doctor of the Zulu tribe. Thats why military time is Zulu time. Then came along the English and their silly GMT. It sure is confusing.

I think the OP has a serious query - he should get a serious answer. It is a fascinating subject.
