You are right it is way off the subject of ID, the thread just got on a tangent talking about needing science and not needing religion, which morphed into discussion about science having many bad results and concepts. I guess the point I was trying to just make is regulating science in area that do not affect our direct personal life, we don;t think about when regulated. Issues were science might want to be regulated that affects our daily life, people regard as invading their freedom. Science gave us all these entertainment toys, but try to regulate what you can't watch on the TV, becomes a freedom issue. Prohibition was a good example, where technology of mass production and distribution of alcohol, affected the social behavior of a society, so they outlawed it. It came back, the freedom was restored, but it still had laws to control its useage, regulate it.
I don't know too much about this concept of parallel universes, but if there could be, imagine ours may have been just as Genisis said, and Origional Sin with Adam and Eve began, and this followed mankind, to our current world condition. In a parallel universe, imagine that Eve never tempted Adam, and they lived in a Garden of Eden, populating and evolving without sin until 2012. The earth was pure, there was no pollution, no disease, no wars, no sin. What if that happened in a identical universe, playing out the same words of Genisis, except Adam and Eve obeyed the one condition God gave them.
