Take the question that gave rise to this thread, mix in a generous portion of quantum multiverse theory, and top it with that quote from "A Christmas Carol," and all sorts of possibilities spring up. But predestination is not one of them. (Unless of course you go down the rabbit hole that suggests that in an infinity of universes, everything has happened and will happened, so what's the point - à la Larry Niven's "All The Myriad Ways" - but I don't buy that philosophy at all.)
