Stranger Fruit

I ran across this story covering Jeremy Hall’s case (PZ comments) and just want to quote the following:

[Hall’s atheism] eventually came out in Iraq in 2007, when he was in a firefight. Hall was a gunner on a Humvee, which took several bullets in its protective shield. Afterward, his commander asked whether he believed in God, Hall said.

"I said, ’No, but I believe in Plexiglas,’" Hall said.

Give that boy a promotion. In a firefight it is most definitely preferable to believe in Plexiglass over God.

    In a firefight it is most definitely preferable to believe in Plexiglass over God.

    There is always Cromwell’s famous dictum for the New Model Army: “Trust in God but keep your powder dry.”
