In World War Two, two soldiers, one an atheist and the other a Christian, were debating the existence of God. As they were arguing, they came under attack from an air raid and both men dove into the nearest foxhole.
In the foxhole, with bombs dropping all around them, the atheist began to pray out loud asking God to save him. The Christian looked over at the atheist and said, "I guess it's true that there is no such thing as an atheist in a foxhole because you are praying to God."
The atheist looked at the Christian and said, "If you believe in God and that you are going to heaven if you die, what are doing in this foxhole anyway?"
At that moment, the men realized they had both just been converted to agnosticism
