The God of the Old Testament was not a nice guy - or one who operated with a just mindset. Just consider how that leader fired Adam and Eve as property managers of Eden for one violation and without due process. And how dare ask a father like Abraham to kill his son.
In his book "The Genesis of Justice" Harvard Law professor and noted trial attorney Alan Dershowitz has a lot to say on what went on in civilization before the establishment of the ten commandments.
With Nemo, and before that Sandy and before that Irene, God seems to be on thin ice when it comes to seeming negligence or deliberate harm in managing natural forces. Until Nemo I had only been inconvenienced. Now, money is at stake.
The complex in which I live had contracted out plowing of the parking lot in which I parked my car the evening Nemo started gathering force as a storm. I had just finished up a consulting job north of New Haven, Connecticut. The drive back was dicey but I made it and all's well that ends well.
So far, as of a little after 1 P.M., the plowing service has not shown up. Of course, I asked the powers that be here when I can expect a road plowed in the parking lot. They hope for today but no guarantee. They also hope for tomorrow, if not today, but no guarantee.
Tomorrow my consulting assignment begins at 4 P.M. Others whose cars are stranded in the lot might have to start out earlier. So, there is a potential for a class action lawsuit. The case of Parking Lot E v God et al. The other defendants could include the maintenance service for this complex and the plowing service. But first I would have to examine the various contracts. As for God as a defendant, I feel on safer ground there.
