There was a film made maybe 5 years ago on the south coast of Australia called `The Man Who Sued God`. His boat gets struck by lightening and destroyed but when he trys to claim insurence money they claim it is an act of god. So he sues god claiming that if he cannot sue god he will sue the churches for creating a false idol. ^_^ Brilliant film.

The damn, busdriver plays Christian music and his Christian radio talk show, so I heard about it a while ago. Not that it matters, but I sleep in his bus like a homeless guy and enjoys when he plays the sports talk in the morning. Wth did that come from.

In response to peoples comments, and not the actual story...

It saddens me that people want to diss and blame God so much. I mean, what reason do you have for it? His(technically His sons, but also His) whole message teaches love. Can you really fault someone for promoting love and peace in the world? Yes, people have taken His message, twisted it, and done horrible things...but that`s on them, not on God.

And I know some of you can say many things to that. I know it`s not scientific or anything. If you want to talk science and logic, I can prove to you Gods existence through science and logic. It just makes me sad that people raise objections to God so much, yet say nothing about other religions. The world could do with more open-minded, un-biased people.

Oh my god. People who don`t understand why he`s doing this: Go to page one of the comments on here and look at what "purekarma" wrote. He`s not doing it because he thinks he should actually sue God. He`s doing it to prove a point.

What it comes down to is humans/people should take responsibility for their own actions; rather than putting the blame on others. )-|

I bet if the place where they found the note from "God" had security cameras, they would find some smartass writing that. I agree with jjcruiser13. Why would almighty and powerful God write a note? It`s kinda like Britney Spears talking to a counseler about her problems instead of writing some lame song about them. And where is that dude gonna get the money from God if he had won? Would he take it from christian churches?

Snoogans, is that lion sh*ting a shovel?

This all seem kinda silly.

God can`t respond to being sued through a person.

Otherwise I`d say Buddha is speaking through me and he has enough with the peace talk and now says to all go kill yourselves.

get what I`m saying?

"PayN8tention" should become a stand up comic.

Anyways, this shouldn`t turn into a debate on the existence of god or the intelligence of Nebraskans. I looked and saw that some people didn`t quite get why Sen. Chambers was making this suit. Go back to page one of the comments and read the post by "purekarma."

Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you.....errrr....you?"

God: *booming laugh*
*Chambers sneezes*
Prosecuter: God bless you.
God: No I don`t!
Judge: Can`t we get along with this case? Jesus Christ!
God: HEY! That`s my son you are talking about!

abacab, pyry_92 assuming that god doesnt exist is as valid as my assumption that there is not a small teapot orbiting the sun

i think my assumption is factually correct

---

i do agree with you abacab and wouldnt be writing this atall if more christians were like you :)

on homophobia:
i wish that people protested as much about not following Deuteronomy 22:11 and Leviticus 20:9 as Leviticus 20:10 :D

on creation:
not only should evolution not be taught but neither should the "theory" that the world is round, as it goes against Matthew 4:8


ps. pi should be re-defined as 3.0 (1 Kings 7:23)

more peaceful. (sorry for the cut-off. stupid character limit.)

(P.S., to those who think God will condemn you to hell for any mistake, stop reading Leviticus and read the New Testament instead! It makes a lot more sense. ;-) Proverbs is a good one too...)

^true. Thee is no god, people...

Every time I see a comment presenting the absence of a God as a fact, I get really pissed off. I never present my belief in God as a fact; I present it as my (heretical) belief. It`s neither fact nor fiction, it is a hypothesis. I think a comment such as this has the same temerity as somebody condemning another to hell (think Phelp`s family).

ANYWAYS...

Even if this "letter from God" thing is a crock, it does bring up a good point. People shouldn`t blame poverty and the world`s problems on a God or lack thereof. People -myself included- need to be more diplomatic and generous towards one another. Just like any other creature in the animal kingdom, we are bound to have disagreements. The difference between humans and the other animals out there is that we have weapons that can wipe out massive areas of land; they can`t. If we learned to stop resorting to war all the time, things may be be

R U Kidding... I`m still unsure that Free Will is a gift from God.
"OK humanity, you`re free to do what you want, but remember: If you ACTUALLY do what you want, you`re going to HELL for eternity! So long, SUCKERS!!! Haw-haw!"

It depends on how you want to live your life. God gives you an option if you don`t want to go to hell, but He`s not going to make you.

Not to play Devil`s Advocate or anything...
I just want to. :)

I`m not Christian, but why *can`t* someone have responded? if the Christian God works miracles, most times in history THROUGH someone else couldnt`ve he worked through someone? A miracle isnt just the supernatural. Besides...I find it ironic that all this God bashing is allowed but if it was any other religion everyone would`ve thrown back their heads and howled.
For people who like to think themselves educated and worldly you are awfully close minded.

Sen. Chambers actually does a lot of good for our state. This whole lawsuit came about in support of a woman who`s suing a Judge because during the trial for her rape, the prosecuting attorneys were not allowed to use the words rape, sexual assault, or in pretty much any way state that it was against her will. She was told her lawsuit was frivolous. Sen. Chambers has sued "God" to protect our right to state our opinions in court... however frivolous they may be.
