    That sounds like faith.

    We didn't define the "crisis", but if we are talking about living or dying, a lot of people would be willing to try about anything to stay alive. Is this will to live surprising?
    Well, your describing an attitude, and a logic that isn't necessarily inferred from the data. The attitude you are describing is more in line with allowing someone else to pray for you, or praying with someone else.
    I don't think that moment in life comes in the same way that a frustration with a car problem you don't understand so you just start plugging anything in.

    The bottom line, the act is evidence of a kind of faith. What you are describing is not the common thought process of people. Otherwise they would pray to santa. After all, so many kids believe and maybe they are right?

    See, this is where all those atheist comparison really bite back.
    To serve man.
