Legal case against God dismissed

8 replies
Found 16th Oct 2008
A US judge has thrown out a case against God, ruling that because the defendant has no address, legal papers cannot be served.

The suit was launched by Nebraska state senator Ernie Chambers, who said he might appeal against the ruling.

He sought a permanent injunction to prevent the "death, destruction and terrorisation" caused by God.

Judge Marlon Polk said in his ruling that a plaintiff must have access to the defendant for a case to proceed.

"Given that this court finds that there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant this action will be dismissed with prejudice," Judge Polk wrote in his ruling.

Mr Chambers cannot refile the suit but may appeal.

'God knows everything'

Mr Chambers sued God last year. He said God had threatened him and the people of Nebraska and had inflicted "widespread death, destruction and terrorisation of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants".

He said he would carefully consider Judge Polk's ruling before deciding whether to appeal.

The court, Mr Chambers said, had acknowledged the existence of God and "a consequence of that acknowledgement is a recognition of God's omniscience".

"Since God knows everything," he reasoned, "God has notice of this lawsuit."

Maybe God should counter-sue Mr Chambers who seems to be representing the human race for the wilful destruction of his creation - this planet - that was made perfect in the beginning.
From the first apple (or whatever fruit it was) core dropped as litter to the atomic bombs tested and used, the hunting to extinction of many species of wildlife, the persecution and destruction of people by war, famine, etc etc.

Mr Chambers has an address....

The fact is that the times that God did judge folk sometimes using the forces of nature, he did so as an act of holy rightousness and only as a last resort.

I have taken time to read the Holy Bible over many years and I have also had excellent teachers that have shown me how all of the above is called SIN and how God has already taken the penalty (the wages of sin is death) / judgement for that SIN upon himself by the sacrifice of his own son Jesus Christ (Yeshua Hammashiach to the Jewish folk) 2000 years ago. (You can read about it for yourself either on or off line).

The other thing is that the events such as earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes, etc are not always acts of God but just the way the environmental system works. It can't be helped if people go and live in areas where they are most likely to be affected by them. Monsoons happen in the Asian continents every year, Tornados happen in the western continents every year, Hurricanes happen in the Carribean every year and so on.

Anyway enough of the ranting of an old toad, maybe I shoud have taken it to the ranting thread, but if any of you have any questions regarding God, ask him, he promised he would answer all who call on his name.

Maradona was at hand to receive the papers.........
