What If . . .?

The "Alternate Universe Theory" is that for any choice that anyone makes (or doesn't make) or any event that happened (or didn't happen) "creates" an aternate universe.
Therefore, there are an infinite number of universes where anything that feasibly could have happened actually did happen (or vice versa).
The concept boggles the mind.
If that theory is correct there are universes where . . .
  • Adolph Hitler was never born and WWII never happened.
  • America lost and did not win it's independence in 1776.
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. and/or JFK were never assasinated.
  • The Jackson Five were not given a record contract and never became famous.
    (Michael Jackson was a "nobody" in that universe.)

    Or even closer to home:

  • You were never born. When she was pregnant with you your mother miscarried in her fourth month.
  • Crossing the street at age six you failed to see that big truck coming toward you and were run over. You died on the way to the hospital.
  • Playing the lottery on a whim last week you won the big prize--180 million dollars!
