Should the phrase "Act Of God" be removed from insurance documents for those who happen to believe that the existance of a higher power is complete nonsense?

  • Yep. It has no place there. It should say natural disaster.

  • No b/c even an atheist can understand that this phrase refers to acts of NATURE....not god. I don't need it spelled out for me to understand what they mean. And it doesn't offend me to have that wording used.

  • Wrong crowd. However yes I think it should. I believe in complete separation of religion from state. Nothing should include the word god, Zeus, or what ever when in comes to state and country.

  • God does exist and you feel stupid one day when he come back and you do not know him!

    Wow how sad some answer every question like that. Did you ever wonder how you would feel if you one day found out he didn't exist?

  • What would you like it to say instead?

    How about Act of state, Act of humanism, Act of humanity and compassion.

  • I suppose we are going to have to completely change our terminology in this country, perhaps the world to suit everyone's religious beliefs. I would be curious to find out how many atheists are completely offended by this term. Honestly do we have to create a new politically correct language that won't offend anybody in any group? When we are finished altering our terminology will anyone even be able to understand what we are saying without a manual?
