and maintainer of:
Just a minor follow-up on my little contract adventure. When reading through it and the Force Majeure section I fell over the term. "Act of god", I am not a religious person and I found it somewhat weird to use this term in a general consulting contract.
This puzzled and amused me, since in my opinion an act of god could be anything, since it would be a question of religion.
Anyway somebody made a movie named: "The Man Who Sewed God", the movie raises the question: "Who actually decides if an event is an act of God or not, and who defines the nature of these acts? Churches or Insurance companies?"
I am not lawyer, but I found it a bit alarming and amusing that this term was in a contract I am negotiating with a client.
