National Atheist's Day!

Happy Atheist's Day! 
Do not let it be said you do not have your own day to celebrate your beliefs!

To Everybody else, no matter what your faith, Happy April's Fools Day!

There has been humorous posts on this for a few years now.  This is the first time I have had a blog and got to join in the celebration.  This of course refers to Davids Psalm 14, "The fool has said in his heart, there is no God."  I'm don't believe in Atheists!  There are those that claim that they don't believe.  The Army has a saying, "There are no Atheist's in Fox Holes!" 

A Fox Hole is a six to eight foot by 2 to 3 foot hole dug in the ground for cover while fighting.  During the mid 80's I know damn well the Army still taught soldiers how to dig them, and a folding shovel was part of the gear a soldier carried to the field.  I was a 'Tanker', or Armour Crewman, and we dug fox holes in basic training.  We guarded Fox Holes in peacetime in Fort Knox, Kentucky like it was life or death, when you knew nobody was coming to take it from you.  I still remember how much smarter the shit my Dad said to me growing up seemed to get while guarding a fox hole at three in the morning, shivering my butt off, standing in three feet of water that had seeped into it from the clay walls of the hole.

In the Army when the bullets start flying, mortar and artillery shells coming in, and the Tanks show up!  Apaches and A-10's chewing up your machinery.  There will be nobody who isn't praying to somebody, I Guarantee It! 

Happy April's Fool's Day!!!
