To the best of my knowledge, the bible doesn't teach neither predestination nor free will directly. And it definately doesn't state one way or
another the existance or non-existance of alternate realities.
I don't know about most orginized religions, but the Catholic Church officially recognizes predestination and free will. However, they have no
official teachings concerning how the two can coexist. It is one of the "mysteries" which frustrated me when I was much younger.
If you ask me, there are no mysteries. There are only questions without a proper answer.
If you can accept God as "all knowing", man having free will, and accept "Many World Quantum Theory" then the combination of the three is not a
stretch of the imagination, and it removes the "mystery" from the doctrine.
