    After reading a post that had the word god in it??? i know;)It just popped into my head ,about the film where john travolta was sueing god for damages,because the insurance company was trying to weasle out of paying up,saying it was an act of god.My question is,could this really happen ,and what do you think the chances of winning would be?:biggrin:

    But if god is all powerful, surely everything is an act of god?

    OK, they then need to prove that "god" exists. Otherwise, how can he "act"?

    Thats a good point,surely its up to the insurance company to prove he exists,or that statement, act of god,cant be used?
