Payment will come via their descendants, I'm sure.

Wouldn't it make more sense to sue God?

And over an event that happened over three thousand years ago? :lol: Wow... It wouldn't be possible to even determine anything about the "case" in terms of damages.

Not to mention that it would be well beyond the statute of limitations. :yes:

All mortal parties involved are long dead! Notice that I said mortal parties, of course God's still around but no way can you sue Him! Least not successfully...

IF you can show that the effects continue AND that a party or parties is/are substantively responsible, THEN, assuming Egyptian law is similar to the US, you could actually sue and the Statute of Limitations would not apply.

If it's being brought in the World Court, no problem - kangaroo courts will hear anything...

The problem here is I would put the blame on Egypt here. Pharaoh kept bringing the plagues on himself.

Indeed. How about DON'T tick of the Creator of the universe by enslaving His chosen people!

:no: Wouldn't fly. If I ignore someone's threats to rob me and they subsequently do, they're the ones who are going to be prosecuted for it.

Difficult to deliver the subpoena. Or perhaps just difficult to come back after the delivery.

I was disappointed that the blog post by the theologian was not more lively, given the topic.

But perhaps Israel can sue for the enslavement of their entire nation by the egyptians and get recompense for that. Seems to work here in the USA.

Didn't God already deal with that by kicking Ancient Egypt's butt? And then telling them to plunder the Egyptians "trick or treat" style?

If I can sue anyone in history for hurting me or my people, then there are a lot of ancient kingdoms and empires who have some answering up to do.

A landlord threatening eviction would be the more correct analogy.

I gots one of those in denim claws too! It says that if you sue me, I can take all of your bacon, and feed your cats to CP's killer cows!

...among other things I am not telling you about yet.

You have to sign the contract before you can find out what's in it.

Oh no Israel! Better watch out, 'cause if you don't show up to the hearing at World Court, then the UN will.....do absolutely nothing, as it's always done.

Which is why you should never sign a contract with Rogue...

The contracts Rogue has people sign are succinct and unambiguous. It's what he does with the signature later that worries me.
