Re: Could Judgment Day have been averted if Sarah hadn't called Ginger
The timeline is a paradox. The T-800 comes back to kill Sarah due to orders from SkyNet. The T-800 is destroyed, and its advanced technology leads to the development of SkyNet.
Also, what was the T-800 going to do if Sarah had an unlisted number?
That's what I'm getting at. If the T-800 assumes Ginger is Sarah, it'll never get destroyed then reversed engineered by Cyberdyne. Unless it puts in a application at Cyberdyne and pretty much creates SkyNet itself.
