Not as we know it. No, time did not exist.
However, according to string theory something like it probably did. So pre-bang, a singularity formed that created space time as we know it and started a new beginning.
According to Aztec myth, this is the fifth "time" that has existed. A god sacrificed himself to bring it into reality. (I just did an Aztec hub so that is where my head is, at the moment.) It's as good an answer as anybody can give us, though, at this point in science, or at least as far as I know.
There was another universe before the big bang. I see no reason why in that universe time wouldn't exist.
I don't think it did. God created the big bang and created time.
Time is often described as the 4th dimension. So in that respect it could be said that time only exists as long as there is a being able to perceive this 4th dimension.
Objects withering, dying and decaying is all due to entropy increase not the passing of time. So really, time is just another tool that humans invented to keep organised and to be able to communicate efficiently.
I hope time is the perception of man. It is created by man for his own convenience of measuring the chronology of events. Otherwise there should be no 'time'. It can be only a cycle of events taking place.
Time is a man made construct. Change does not require time but we notice it in time. A plant grows, it just grows, we measure it in time but it is the same as the seed. Changes occur and they do not require time. In fact in my mind I reverse time. I can go back and change things, we do it all the "time". When is a funny word. Then is a funny word. Is is a normal word.
How is that for way out there?
I looked into this briefly in my hub:

It would seem that it is a yes, but it depends on the theory presented in the hub.
