Presentism, a theory about the nature of time, implies that there are no merely past objects or events. That the Trojans were conquered is true. Given presentism, that truth seems to lack both a truthmaker and also a supervenience base of the sort required by TSB. Thus, presentism appears to be — and, this chapter argues, really is — inconsistent with Truthmaker and TSB. Rather than take this to be a reason to reject presentism, this chapter argues that we should instead see it as a reason to jettison Truthmaker and TSB.
