Atheism in prayer

"Lord, I believe. Help thou my unbelief."
- the father of a possessed boy, Mark 9:24
(in the NIV it goes: "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!"

a line from Dylan Thomas' radio play "Under Milk Wood". One of the characters, Nogood Boyo, is lying on his back, all by himself, in a boat, looking up at the sky. He says, "I don't know who's up there, and I don't care."
- thanks to Ron E.
