You've never found an atheist in a fox hole and I doubt you'll find one on their death bed.
Do you have ANY REAL PROOF of this, or do you just like to BS for that sake of it???
Actually there was a documentary about a climber that feel down a deep fissure while mountain climbing. He broke his leg during the fall. He became separated from his partner prior to this fall and had no one around that was able to help him out. The guy laid in this crevasse for several days and definitely thought he was going to die. He finally decided to lower himself further into the crevasse even though it was counter intuitive because the light was above him. He had enough sense about him that crawling up towards the light was not an option. Using the remain rope that he had he lowered himself until he came to the end of the rope. He still had not reached bottom and could not see the bottom. At that point he had no choice but to cut the rope and hope for the best -- either a survivable landing or a quick death.
Amazingly he survived the fall only to land in practically total darkness below with a hint of light coming in from one direction above him. He was able to inch his way up a fairly steep incline using his pick ax. After a grueling climb, inch by inch dragging his broken leg he managed to break open the ice and make it to the surface. He then literally crawled his way back to the base camp over rocks, ice, you name it. Luckily for the guy, his partner stayed at the base camp for an extra day even though he had totally given up any hope that his partner would be found. He was too grief stricken by the supposed death of his climbing partner that he couldn't face going back home to share the tragic news with the "dead" man's family.

They made a documentary about this horrific mishap. One note worthy thing mentioned by the guy that lived to tell the tale was that he not once thought of "GOD". He said, thinking back, had he done so he probably would have given up hope, resigned himself to his expiration and just froze to death. The only thing that occupied his mind, through out the whole ordeal, was his next step that inched him towards his goal.
It was a great documentary. Wish I could remember the name of it.
