Random Thoughts about...The Praying Mantis

I saw a praying mantis on TV the other day. Very facinating creature, but it got me thinking:

1) To whom or to what is the praying mantis praying to?
2) What happens if the praying mantis happens to be atheist? Is it then just called a mantis? You can tell which ones are atheist because their front legs aren't bent.
3) Given that a female praying mantis will eat the head of the male mantis after mating, apparently it's probably praying for forgiveness.
4) Put 10 or more praying mantises (manti?) together, and they'll all start to chant hyms. Scary stuff.
