RE: Why does everyone seem to miss this?
my brother was an atheist in a foxhole...

a better retort might be, "then why do they all wear bullet proof vests instead of relying on divine protection?"

“Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?”

RE: Why does everyone seem to miss this?
So my own father is not evidence enough that there are atheists in foxholes. Fuck that shit. Drinking Beverage

I didn't get lugged around the world, torn from all that was familiar for me, and watch my father get deployed three times for nothing.

That's the thing with the whole "atheists in foxholes" argument, it really does seem to be an argument against the existence of a deity. By pointing out that people are more likely to believe when they are desperate and irrational they are showing how invalid that belief is.

Nice point.

This same argument could be made against theists that claim that they (or some unknown 'friend) 'found god' when they were down and out, drug addicted, alcoholic, suicidal or some other low point that life hands us.

"Yeah sure, I 'found god' when my rational thought processes were at their worst, brought on by the stress of (pick one or more): loss of a job, spouse leaving or dying, alcohol induced fog, diagnosed with major chronic disease. What's wrong with that?".

Calling KingsChosen ... KingsChosen you there? ... Nah, dude already gets this. Don't bother him none. When you're wearing rhino skin why would you undress?

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: Why does everyone seem to miss this?
We called them DFP's, every army has their own terminology and its only civvies call them foxholes because they usually aren't holes at all. Holes are too permanent and if you cant move around in a firefight you are pretty fucked...been there....still an atheist

The secret to a happy life is lowering your expectations to the point where they are already met
