The VBIED and the Aiethiest

  1. Dec 3, 2007 #1
    An Aiethiest who just happens to be a U.S. Army soldier who just happens to be in Anbar province just happens to walk by a VBIED; guess what happens? It explodes and his leg is ripped off. He wakes up in surgery at Balad Field Hospital-Balad Iraq. The first thing he says is OMG please help me.

    Is he still an Aiethiest?

    Is he actually asking God for help?
    Or just exclaiming OMG as shock/pain of the situation?

    Its all up to him and how he feels about it. Thats the beauty of it :) (not referring to his leg)

    Yes, OMG is commonly used as a generic expletive. I'm an atheist and say it all the time along with Jesus Christ! Doesn't mean anything to me exept as an expletive.

    Not to mention the fact that Christians are NOT supposed to take their gods name in vain. Which means its actually a more appropriate thing for an atheist to do.

    well i guess i'm not an atheist anymore after playing chess in jail which they have mixed up with henerys game "readers digest 1972 i belive" for lives when by magic a piece was moved. the only problem that i seem to be having is that i'm only seeing the left hand, i mean i've seen some good things but for the most part everyone wants the devils hand which for the life of me i can't understand because he won't give anything for free. i'd say if you stuck in a situation where your having to play the price is right make a deal right away just to get out of it.
