The Senator who sued God

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

Nebraska State Senator Ernie Chambers has filed a lawsuit against God in an attempt to prevent the big guy from making terrorist threats, which he claims are "credible given God's history". Chambers, in what Wired Blog calls a "fit of alliteration", also accuses God of causing "fearsome floods, egregious earthquakes, horrendous hurricanes, terrifying tornadoes, pestilential plagues, ferocious famines, devastating droughts, genocidal wars, birth defects, and the like", although it appears his alliterative imagination ran a little dry for the last two.

In addition to God's directly destructive acts, the Senator also accuses him of dispatching his chroniclers in order to "disseminate in written form, said admissions, throughout the Earth in order to inspire fear, dread, anxiety, terror and uncertainty, in order to coerce obedience to Defendant's will."

Before the residents of Chambers' constituency of Omaha, Nerbraska begin impeachment proceeding against him, it's worth pointing out that there is method behind his madness. He filed the suit in order to highlight the absurd fact that Nebraska's constitution allows lawsuits to be filed for any reason, however ridiculous.

[Thanks Frank]

Senator filed a lawsuit against God. Does he know what is written in God's Holy Lawbook, the Bible?

Come, behold the works of JAHWEH, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. (Psalms 46:8-9)

I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I JAHWEH do all these things. (Isaiah 45:7)

The great day of JAHWEH is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of JAHWEH: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against JAHWEH: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. (Zephaniah 1:14-18)

The Bible teaches that at the end of the world all the wicked will come under eternal punishment in a place called Hell, and this time may be very near. There is much Biblical evidence that points to the fall of 2011 as the end of the world.

And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be TIME NO LONGER:

But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. Revelation 10:5-7
