Re: Was Amy's "present" always the future?
I would have to rewatch to confirm, but I could SWEAR that Amy said in Angels Take Manhattan that they were in New York in 2012. If so, either they are not in her "present," or that puts everything else farther back (approx 10 years or so), since at that point she's been travelling with the Doctor for over 10 years.
There's an old Earth saying Captain. A phrase of great power and wisdom, and consolation to the soul in time of need...
