Now that I'm an atheist, I need some new vocabulary.  "Oh my God!", "Good Lord!", Jesus Christ!", and "God damn it" all have to go.  What can I replace these God-isms with except for Atheism-isms - but which ones?  What else to say instead?  There ought to be a hand-book or something... let's make one.  And let's have fun (I hope) doing it.

"Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ!"  Old school = coolest school. XD

Just invoke atheist names. "For the love of Sagan, will you get OFF the Ingersolling cell phone!? Don't make me go Hitchens on your ass. And clean up all this Shermer you leave all over the place."

 

 

Great googly moogly - my mothers favorite

Jesus titty fucking christ

Hokey spoons!! - not sure where I heard that one.

Oh "your' god!! - Futurama

An atheist saying God-dammit believes in god as much as a Christian saying "Holy Cow!" believes in the sanctity of cows in India.
Oh my, Gosh Darn, Dagnabbett, drat, rats, Holy Moly, etc.
Doug, those sound non committed to the task at hand, you need to let go.
"For Spaghetti Monster sake"

Why change? Just because you don't believe in Santa doesn't mean you have to stop saying his name.
Yes, there really is no reason to change the expletives you use.  Language is a construct of human invention and as such words are only symbols for certain meanings. When you say "oh my god" you aren't explicitly saying you believe in god, but that you were surprised. Therefore "oh my god" is completely okay for an atheist to say because it contains no magic powers that suddenly make you a theist.
Not really an atheism-ism, but in place of "Jesus Christ!" I often like to exclaim "Abraham!" or "The Prophet Muhammad!", just for the sake of blaspheming against all religions equally.

use what ever you like  and peaple are afended just tell them to fuck off
