the man who sued God

In The Man Who Sued God (2001), an ex-lawyer  Steve Myers (played by Billy Connolly) sues God because his boat is struck by lightning, and worse his insurance company refuses to pay since the mishap is perceived as an act of God.

The Christian churches and Jewish synagogues are held liable and are asked to either pay large sums of money or prove that God does not exist.

The Man Who Sued God is a 2001 Australian movie in which Billy Connolly plays Steve Myers, an ex-lawyer who sues God because his boat is struck by lightning, and his insurance company refuses to pay, claiming it to be an act of God. By claiming to be God’s representatives on Earth, the Christian churches and Jewish synagogues are held to be the liable party, putting them in the difficult position of either having to pay large sums of money, or prove that God does not exist.
