Based on how it's phrased, an Act of God should constitute something that can scientifically or logically be traced back to some sort of omnipotent being. That, or an omnipotent being soul punching and/or dragon kicking you into the next dimension.

An alien invasion? Really?

An "Act of God" is like a hurricane, maybe a tree falling over on you... Just the random shit that happens to unlucky people

Unless we also consider aliens "people," by law we can't hold them accountable for their actions, and you would find a great deal of people who would be violently against considering aliens equals. Also, it's clearly not the act of the MOD. Thus, it's an act of god.

A pack of wolves suddenly darting out of the woods and attacking you unprovoked would be considered an act of god, so this should too.

Just like if a pack of wolves suddenly darted out of the woods and attacked you unprovoked would be an act of nature.
We can't hold God accountable that's why it's ACT OF GOD

We can't hold Aliens accountable that's why it's ACT OF ALIENS

Thus, the reason I find phrasing it 'Act of God' a poor choice, rather than something like 'Act of Nature' or 'Terrible Luck'.

An accident, something that can't be prevented, an act of nature?

It should have been ammended to "Unforseen acts of circumstance or nature"

i.e. Being struck by lightning, drowned in flash flood etc etc

Yeah it's referring to unexpected natural events and such. It's basically saying that your family can't sue for wrongful death or injury if you get struck by lightning; tree uprooting and falling on you; or a fault line opens under you fall in and die.

You better rage quit before your dead, he always means business when he brings out The Horn.
But can it get through my spin of sorrow
