We are living in "then"? Well, lets see if this holds up with some examples.

I can't believe they then voted for GW Bush!
- refers to a past act

How many hippos would it then take to crowd a lake?
- refers to a future act

Can't use the word then to mean the time I am actually writing this message.
Hmm, what word would describe the exact which is passing before me as I write and as you read?
Some call it the present, or perhaps lets us this example.

I want your Language Removed out of this house NOW!
- refers to specific current point

I think we do live in now. Jisbond, I think you are really silly. You think you can time travel? Who will win the World Series in 2002? Actually thats a trick question.
