That was the dumbest anti-religion quote i have ever heard.

L'Aquila quake: Italy scientists guilty of manslaughter

Six Italian scientists and an ex-government official have been sentenced to six years in prison over the 2009 deadly earthquake in L'Aquila.


A regional court found them guilty of multiple manslaughter.

Prosecutors said the defendants gave a falsely reassuring statement before the quake, while the defence maintained there was no way to predict major quakes.

The 6.3 magnitude quake devastated the city and killed 309 people.

Many smaller tremors had rattled the area in the months before the quake that destroyed much of the historic centre.

It took Judge Marco Billi slightly more than four hours to reach the verdict in the trial, which had begun in September 2011.

Lawyers have said that they will appeal against the sentence. As convictions are not definitive until after at least one level of appeal in Italy, it is unlikely any of the defendants will immediately face prison.

'Hasty sentence'
The judge also ordered the defendants to pay court costs and damages.

Reacting to the verdict against him, Bernardo De Bernardinis said: "I believe myself to be innocent before God and men."

"My life from tomorrow will change," the former vice-president of the Civil Protection Agency's technical department said, according to La Repubblica.

"But, if I am judged by all stages of the judicial process to be guilty, I will accept my responsibility."

Another, Enzo Boschi, described himself as "dejected" and "desperate" after the verdict was read.

"I thought I would have been acquitted. I still don't understand what I was convicted of."

One of the lawyers for the defence, Marcello Petrelli, described the sentences as "hasty" and "incomprehensible"

I cut myself while slicing tomatoes, with a knife that came with no warnings or instructions, so I'm suing the cutlery manufacturer for their negligence.

I drove my car into a tree, I'm suing Ford. I tripped over my shoe laces, I'm suing Nike. I got brain freeze eating ice cream. I'm suing Breyers.
I slammed my finger in the door, so I'm participating in a class action lawsuit against door manufacturers.

My hearing has been damaged by power tool noise, I'm suing Black & Decker.

I sprained my ankle on a crack in the sidewalk, I'm suing the town.




Love it!
