    Indonesian arrested for denying God

    An Indonesian civil servant could face a five-year jail sentence for using social media to deny the existence of God.
    Alexander Aan, 31, wrote on a Facebook page that "God does not exist," prompting an outpouring of religious fervor in the largely Muslim country of 240 million, the Associated Press reported.
    "If God exists, why do bad things happen?" Aan continued, according to the Telegraph. "There should only be good things if God is merciful."
    After the controversial post, a mob attacked Aan on his way to work and police arrested him on charges of blasphemy.

    A lot of my mussie drinking buddies cannot get their head around the concept of atheism, but they do accept that they aren't going to convert me, and stopped discussing it with me a long time ago.

    Bad for Aan but pretty good for the mob of speculaters in virgin futures. You would think with 72 under the belt they would be more than satisfied.

    Sadly, most of the world is still unenlightened.

    Mr Alexander Aan sounds like an educated, thoughtful and intellectually inquisitive individual.

    Unlike the mindless sheep who berate him.
