(Newser) – "God" has apparently responded to a lawsuit accusing Him of making terroristic threats against mankind. If that sounds like the premise for a Jim Carrey movie, well, one day it might be. Agnostic Nebraska legislator Ernie Chambers sued God in a county court for all the disasters He brings to the world. Now a mysterious response claims God is immune from legal action and the court lacks jurisdiction.

God's answer "miraculously appeared; it just all of a sudden was here—poof!" said a court clerk. The response has a divine ring to it. "I created man and woman with free will and next to the promise of immortal life, free will is my greatest gift to you," it states. Michael the Archangel is listed as a witness.
