"The only time when this kind of declaration has any meaning is when one is taking one's last gasp."

Well David, I was at my fathers death bed when he was indeed taking his last gasp. He was brought up in a catholic home and afterwards, was an non-believer, or atheist as you would no doubt prefer, the rest of his life. Some of his (still) catholic family turned up at his bedside in the hospital and kept suggesting to him, (he was still fairly aware but couldn't talk), that they call a priest. The rest of the family (guessing his feelings on this) suggested to him to blink once for 'yes' and twice for 'no' just to be sure of his last wishes. We even grudgingly (due to his state) did this twice. The second time, the answer in his eyes was more definate than the first. He died in peace!

Oh and David, I am already true to God, my God, the one true God, The Flying Spaghetti Monster.
I denounce the holy spirit!!!
