They're no atheist in foxholes...
 

I've never heard that said by anyone that has actually BEEN in a foxhole. I have been, and I'm still an Athiest. So guess again.. . . This is just crap said by people of faith to try and proclaim that only people of faith are brave enough to serve their country, and try and claim that deep down Athiests know they are wrong. It is incorrect, and most people that say that will never find themselves in a foxhole, therefor will never know how wrong they are.

In extreme situations, some people move away from religion, others begin to believe in it.  I don't know which is more common.  That's about the best summation, I think.

I've talked to a few combat veterans before, that's what basically all of them seem to say. 

In any case, I still like the quote I've heard about that...  "'There are no atheists in foxholes' isnít an argument against atheism, itís an argument against foxholes." from James Murrow.

I've always thought that most people in foxholes are probably agnostics.

While it's true that atheists may suddenly say a little prayer from their childhood, it seems equally true that most believers are actually afraid of dying--suggesting that they may have some doubt about the reality of a life after death.   

It makes sense to me that, when faced with the very real possibility of the end of everything, both sides would have pressing reasons to question their assumptions.

Can we all agree now that religion threads are a very bad idea?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
