The day God was taken to court

Haha, you can’t make this stuff up.

I think I’m going sue the boogie man for keep me up all night with his scare tactics.

The day God was taken to court

Bucharest – A Romanian man who sued God for “fraud” and “betrayal of trust” for failing to answer his prayers has had his case dismissed in court, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Mircea Pavel, 40, who is serving 20 years in prison for murder, brought charges against “the defendant God, who lives in the heavens and is represented in Romania by the Orthodox Church,” the daily Evenimentul Zilei reported.

He accused God of “fraud, betrayal of trust, corruption and influence peddling.”

“At my christening, I made a deal with the defendant aimed at freeing me from evil. But the latter has not respected that agreement until now, although he received from me various assets and numerous prayers,” Pavel wrote.

The court in Timisoara, in western Romania, dismissed the case, ruling that “God is not subject to law and does not have an address.”

I’ve Figured It Out

Ok, I’ve finally figured out how it’s possible that people believe in god(s).

Scientific Savvy? In U.S., Not Much

While scientific literacy has doubled over the past two decades, only 20 to 25 percent of Americans are “scientifically savvy and alert,” he said in an interview. Most of the rest “don’t have a clue.” At a time when science permeates debates on everything from global warming to stem cell research, he said, people’s inability to understand basic scientific concepts undermines their ability to take part in the democratic process.

Over the last three decades, Dr. Miller has regularly surveyed his fellow citizens for clients as diverse as the National Science Foundation, European government agencies and the Lance Armstrong Foundation. People who track Americans’ attitudes toward science routinely cite his deep knowledge and long track record.

How can people not believe in god when only about 20% of mature American adults don’t know their ass from their elbow when it comes to science? 1 in 5 adults think the sun revolves around the earth! Only someone who is willfully ignorant to reality would think such stupidities.
