Man sues God, God responds

Apparently you can never sue god because he has immunity from any prosecution by puny earthly courts. A US state senator who sued the almighty last week found that out after he finally got a respond from 'God' in the form of two court filings - one of which named God's Army Field Commander, the Archangel St Michael as witness. From Yahoo News:
Chambers, a self-proclaimed agnostic who often criticizes Christians, said his filing was triggered by a federal lawsuit he considers frivolous. He said he's trying to makes the point that anybody can sue anybody.

Not so, says "God." His response argues that the defendant is immune from some earthly laws and the court lacks jurisdiction.

It adds that blaming God for human oppression and suffering misses an important point.

"I created man and woman with free will and next to the promise of immortal life, free will is my greatest gift to you," according to the response, as read by Friend.

If he doesn't believe in God then what's the use of suing him? Bah!

Actually, free will kind of doesn't exist. Philosophers and scientists figured that out a long time ago. We always select the choice that we believe will benefit us the most. Since we have different value/belief systems and priorities, our choices are often different in similar situations. There's nothing 'free' about that. It's more akin to a cost-benefit analysis. This might not be a very pleasant realization for some people, but if you examine the concept rationally, along with your own thoughts and memories, you'll see what I mean.

'Course, since any judicial system operates under the error that we have free will (how could you punish criminals otherwise?), they might actually take the reply seriously.
