Quote from: Gawdzilla Sama on June 15, 2014, 06:54:22 PMThat was rather my point. When I was in bootcamp, back in 1969, we were ordered to attention a church service each week.
Quote from: USN Atheist on August 06, 2014, 04:09:35 PMFWIW - I completed 20 years in the Navy and was an atheist the entire time. I don't recall any time I was in where not attending services or not bowing my head was an issue...personally I did not care if it did cause issue with anyone, I wasn't about to cater to the "popular" religion of the day - I was in the Navy to do a job. Actually I do recall one incident in berthing where we were having a friendly arguement concerning if Batman could kick jesus' ass and vice-versa. The christian believed he won the arguement and walked away...

Quote from: AllPurposeAtheist on June 13, 2014, 05:37:57 PMKid, are you moral enough to join the army, burn villages, houses, women and children after being a litterbug? I don't know why that came to mind.

Quote from: doorknob on August 06, 2014, 04:24:34 PMI know this has nothing to do with the navy but One time on announcing that I was an atheist I was told there were no atheists in foxholes. Complete rubbish. I later looked up that phrase and low and behold atheists coming out of the wood work who had been in foxholes. None of them were convinced god exists by being in a foxhole.
Quote from: Savior2006 on August 19, 2014, 12:46:58 PMThere are only atheists in foxholes.If God will protect you, then what's the point in taking cover?
