Terminator Genisys

Pops fights the T-3000 inside the time bubble as Sarah and Kyle escape to the bunker. As the T-3000 is destroyed, Pops is thrown into a pool of polyalloy. The explosives detonate, destroying the Cyberdyne building and the Genisys countdown stops. Pops rescues Sarah and Kyle with his new upgraded T-1000 abilities, and they head to Kyle's childhood home to tell him that Genisys is Skynet. In a post-credits scene, Genisys is shown to have survived the explosion in an underground bunker.

Continuity mistake: In the bus scene on the Golden Gate bridge, right after the bus flips end-over-end, we see it sliding broadside from Pops' point of view through the hole in the police car windshield, at most a few hundred feet ahead. At this point, the bus falls over the side of the bridge, breaks apart, then catches and hangs there. In the ensuing wide angle shot, even though Pops was a mere block away and racing at top speed, his car is nowhere in sight. What's taking him so long? Did he take the scenic route? Perhaps stop for beverages? Meanwhile, as Kyle and Sara snap out of it, exchange some dialogue, and begin scrambling upward to safety with John Connor again in hot pursuit, a full minute passes before Pops finally rolls in to save the day.

Question: Since the destruction of Cyberdyne in the end of the movie, even considering that "Pops" is from the original (now alternate) timeline, wouldn't that fact alone delete the existence of the Terminator?

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: If we accept the theory that alternate timelines even exist, branching off every time there is deliberate interference through time travel, then it becomes entirely possible for time travelers to continue existing in alternate timelines, even if they erased their own origins.
