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.
True - "God damn it" is a favorite of mine. But I have heard claims from religious folk that just saying those things means that "atheists really do believe in god, but are just rebelling against him.' So, I figured it would be nice to have something else handy to say for just those occasions.
When religious people make those claims, I remind them that they don't get to just dictate what reality is. I also say "Christ on a cracker!" but that doesn't mean I believe that Jesus is a delicious cheese spread either!
