There is no evidence that impersonal objects have been trained to obey such laws on threat of punishment if they fail to obey. Some non-scientists have been impressed with the power of the universal laws of nature which scientists have discovered to accurately describe impersonal objects' relationships with each other. Considering the use of the word "law" in science to be similar to the use of the word "law" in human legislation, moral codes, ethical codes and religious law---they tend to think that there exist or should exist universal moral laws to govern/control personal human behavior; in a manner parallel to the way in which there are universal laws of nature (which in fact only describe how impersonal objects interact with each other). Some people who have an addictive tendency toward being preoccupied with issues of control, and with being in control, fixate upon the idea/ideal of there existing good universal moral laws to govern/control personal human behavior; and presume that they know what those good laws are, and that they have been chosen (perhaps by God) to inform others of what those good laws are, and so they seek to enforce the good laws with excommunications and other forms of punishment--- when people do not conform to what the good universal moral code demands. They use their presumed knowledge of the good universal moral code as a means to distinguish between good people and evil people; in keeping with their having willfully eaten of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil---in violation of the first commandment of God in the Garden of Eden.
