What % of those in favor of "In God We Trust" know that God doesn't really exist?

Does the statement 'In God we trust' really have to refer to an individual religion, the word 'God' however it is called means the same thing, to trust in a supreme being, be it Yahweh, Allah, The Father, our Lord, Jehova, however you want to call or pronounce it.

Should trust in god matter? Are we putting too much emphasis on invididual religion? What are we trusting god about? protecting us from the stark raving mad muslim fundamentalists, blowing up our planes with explosives in theier shoes, and flying our planes into our buildings?

i always thought that the statement 'In God we trust' meant that we would trust in god to provide for us and to forgive our sins, as jesus his son died for them, and not lead us into temptation, and to deliver us from evil, and allow us into his kingdom of heaven

There would appear to be little point linking 'in God we trust' to government if you didn't think that He was going to do some stuff. Maybe they mean 'in God we believe', in which case, you could then legislate in Christian laws, whatever.
