God is nowhere, apparently

August 29th, 2009

United States Senator Ernie Chambers brought a lawsuit which was intended to result in an injunction to prevent the “death, destruction and terrorisation” caused by the greatest fictional character ever created: God.

However, according to Judge Marlon Polk, the legal papers could never be served because the defendant had no address.

You would think, though, that it would be easy to serve God with legal papers. Isn’t he supposed to know everything? So he would not need to be physically served. And even if he did, surely you could just leave the papers on a desk somewhere, or in a bin, or nailed to a tree. After all, God is everywhere, isn’t he?

Not according to Judge Polk, he isn’t.

So there you have it, folks, according to a United States Judge, God is neither omnipresent nor omniscient.

But I already figured that out for myself.
