    Legal case against God thrown out - 10/20/2008

    A judge has thrown out a case against God - as the Almighty doesn't have an official address and legal papers can't be served.

    Nebraska State Senator Ernie Chambers filed the lawsuit last year seeking a permanent injunction against God who he said made terrorist threats against him and his Omaha constituents.

    Additionally, he said God inspired fear and caused "widespread death, destruction and terrorisation of millions upon millions of the Earth's inhabitants".

    The US politician said his case was over the fact that everyone should have access to the courts regardless of whether they have money or not.

    However, Douglas County District Court Judge Marlon Polk ruled that under state law a plaintiff must have access to the defendant for a lawsuit to move forward - and this would be rather tricky under the circumstances.

    Judge Polk said: "Given that this court finds that there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant this action will be dismissed with prejudice."

    But Senator Chambers, a law school graduate, thinks he's found a hole in the judge's ruling.

    He said: "The court itself acknowledges the existence of God. A consequence of that acknowledgement is a recognition of God's omniscience.

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

    Senator Chambers, who has served a record 38 years in the Nebraska Legislature, has 30 days to decide whether to appeal.

    I quoted this from NY POST

    This guy is trying to expose the fallacy of the god idea in a ratehr legalistic way, presumably he is trying to get the court to admit that the belief in the existence of a godhead is legally unfounded, too bad you cannot do that in America.

    The unprecedented forwardness in such hostile turf should be commended, not ridiculed.

    Some people can't stop. Now they are suing GOD. How are they going to serve the legal papers? Proses servers, tell us how do you do this service?

    I think, the lawsuit is defective and defacto and lacks jurisdiction. Mkuu Max upo hapo. I know this is your field.

    America, the LAND OF OPPORTUNITY AND LAW ENFORCEMENT

    Asante Mkuu Doe, State of NY laws says, inorder for someone to serve a legal paper, and pursunt to CPLR and NYSRR, The Plaintiff must serve Summons and Complaint to the Defendant by either PERSONAL SERVICE, OR AFFIXING LEGAL PAPERS AT THE PLACE OF RESIDENCE AND/OR WORK, OR BY MAIL - CMRRR, and Plaintiff to file proof of service, "the affidavit of service" to the court at the alloted time.

    The issue here is, how is the Plaintiff going to effectuate and/or beget the process of service of his/her lawsuit against the defendant which is GOD who has no street address here on earth? God recognition of omniscience or omnipresence does not accelerate and/or makes a lawsuit not defacto, iter-alia, making a lawsuit justifiable.

    If GOD was/is represented by an Attorney or God was/is a Corporation, then the issue of process of service could be resolved easily, and the matter could not have been debunked by SC, HJ

    In Nebraska, I don't know how they handle the issue of process of service. But I will check and get back to you, Doe. In the Interim.

    Be Blessed

    This points to the intangibility of the god idea, further exposing the illogical premises in this impalpable establishment.

    While one can make an argument that the god idea is trans-logical, further propagating the bizzare elevation that failing a logic test only proves how great the godhead is, the argument would be deep rooted in mythologies and folk tales rather than demonstrably verifiable facts and end up discrediting more, rather than establishing the godhead.

    That is a good question, how are they going to serve their legal papers to the Invisible God? No Street Address? No Visible Address?

    Kaazi ipo hapo

    Some self probing Socratic question, when asked in earnest, may potray the inquirer as an insane person, while actually the one who see the inquirer as insane is closer to insanity than appreciated.
