ADANG, Indonesia (AP) — Indonesian police say a civil servant who posted "God does not exist" on Facebook faces a maximum penalty of five years behind bars for blasphemy.
Thirty-one-year-old Alexander Aan was taken into police custody Friday after his remarks triggered public outcry in West Sumatra province.
He was attacked by a mob on his way to work.
Indonesia, a predominantly Muslim nation of 240 million, recognizes the right to practice five other religions. But atheism is illegal.
Col. Chairul Azis, police chief in the West Sumatran district of Dharmasraya, says Aan was charged because he used the social networking site to spread beliefs that violate the law.
He says Aan also lied on his job application by claiming he was Muslim.
That's why we should not believe in invisible men!

You CANNOT make this shit up!
Smiles are free, but sexual favors might cost you your McNuggets.
That is, if there were any takers when a women at a Los Angeles McDonald's allegedly offered customers sexual favors in exchange for theirs.
Khadijah Baseer allegedly tried opening customers' doors as they went through the drive-thru around 11 p.m. last Wednesday, asking to be paid in the breaded chicken bits if she performed sex acts, according to the Burbank Leader.
The paper didn't specify which acts were allegedly on offer, nor how many McNuggets the woman expected in return.
Various reports say she is known as a panhandler in the area.
Baseer, 31, was arrested on "suspicion of prostitution."
Are McNuggets THAT GOOD????

¡Empezamos el 2012 mal!
Joliet, Illinois. - Un residente de Illinois ha sido acusado de arrancarle los ojos a su tío en una disputa por la tenencia del control remoto de televisión.
Los agentes de la policía del condado de Will dijeron que fueron llamados en Nochevieja a una residencia de Joliet Township, donde descubrieron a un hombre de 62 años con los ojos ensangrentados.
El diario The Herald-News indicó que según las autoridades, al hombre le colgaban los ojos de sus cuencas y la víctima contó a los agentes que su sobrino intentó cegarlo con sus pulgares.
El agresor, de 32 años, fue detenido y acusado de agresión familiar con agravantes. El juez ordenó el martes su detención bajo fianza de un millón de dólares.
Do I approve of this. Absolutely! Mother of the year!
A young Oklahoma mother shot and killed an intruder to protect her 3-month-old baby on New Year's Eve, less than a week after the baby's father died of cancer.
Sarah McKinley says that a week earlier a man named Justin Martin dropped by on the day of her husband's funeral, claiming that he was a neighbor who wanted to say hello. The 18-year-old Oklahoma City area woman did not let him into her home that day.
On New Year's Eve Martin returned with another man, Dustin Stewart, and this time was armed with a 12-inch hunting knife. The two soon began trying to break into McKinley's home.
As one of the men was going from door to door outside her home trying to gain entry, McKinley called 911 and grabbed her 12-gauge shotgun.
McKinley told ABC News Oklahoma City affiliate KOCO that she quickly got her 12 gauge, went into her bedroom and got a pistol, put the bottle in the baby's mouth and called 911.
"I've got two guns in my hand -- is it okay to shoot him if he comes in this door?" the young mother asked the 911 dispatcher. "I'm here by myself with my infant baby, can I please get a dispatcher out here immediately?"
The 911 dispatcher confirmed with McKinley that the doors to her home were locked as she asked again if it was okay to shoot the intruder if he were to come through her door.
"I can't tell you that you can do that but you do what you have to do to protect your baby," the dispatcher told her. McKinley was on the phone with 911 for a total of 21 minutes.
When Martin kicked in the door and came after her with the knife, the teen mom shot and killed the 24-year-old. Police are calling the shooting justified.
"You're allowed to shoot an unauthorized person that is in your home. The law provides you the remedy, and sanctions the use of deadly force," Det. Dan Huff of the Blanchard police said.
Stewart soon turned himself in to police.
McKinley said that she was at home alone with her newborn that night because her husband just died of cancer on Christmas Day.
"I wouldn't have done it, but it was my son," McKinley told ABC News Oklahoma City affiliate KOCO. "It's not an easy decision to make, but it was either going to be him or my son. And it wasn't going to be my son. There's nothing more dangerous than a woman with a child."
