    I believe there are no atheists in foxholes, but I also believe that "Cryin' won't help ya, and prayin' won't do ya no good....."

    I have and do sometimes. To various Gods and gods. I think. Maybe just to the air.

    I did during the brainwashing phase when I was in catholic school and they were trying to indoctrinate me into their cult. Since then I really don't believe in a god. I do marvel at mother nature and the wonder of it all. I think the need for a "supreme being" is a bit silly and deminishes the beauty and complexity of nature but if it makes life easier for ya' and you don't push it on me them have at it.

    As far as the "no atheists in foxholes" that's a great line but the the few times I've been getting my ass handed to me at work praying to god was the furthest thing from my mind. Athiesm intact!

    There's far too much suffering here on Earth for me to believe there's a God.

    I went back and forth on the issue for a long time, too.

    In a way, since we control our own destinies, I think we are our own gods, though some obviously take it to a different level and feel the need not to just worship themselves, but have others worship you as well.

    I believe the opposite. A good christian would not need a foxhole because God would protect him.

    Often I reflect on my day and thank God each night a) for my home b) my health c) my family/friends d) my job and the most important one e) that i was born in the United States of America.

    A lot of us take that last one for granted.
