If "many-worlds" is true every possible outcome happens so there is nothing that could be called a "choice"

I think there could still be choice. After all we assume that we are constrained to occupy only one universe at a time. A remaining question might be whether or not our choices matter if all of them are actually made by some version of ourselves.

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. Martin Luther King

I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend. Thomas Jefferson

Seems to me if its clear that certain things that require ancient dates couldn't possibly be true, we are on our way to throwing out all those ancient dates on the basis of the actual evidence. -- Faith
