The ol' "there are no atheist's in foxholes" line, huh?
Ever watched Touching the Void? It's about a guy who spent three days crawling down a frozen mountain side after his friend had left him for dead. The guy who did the crawling was an atheist, in interviews afterwards he was asked about this and said it never even occured to him to appeal to God.
We can't say for certain how we would react in certain circumstances until we are in them. But I can't see any reason why it would even occur to me to appeal to God.
We're not in denial, RiverRat, we just don't believe.
