Sorry if this discussion is duplicated.

 

I, as most of you, am atheist, but find myself saying thinks like "Oh my god!".  I recently saw Monsters vs Aliens, and found very funny Dr. Cockroach Ph.D when he exclaims

"By Hawking's chair!"

I find that is a very good atheist exclamation (even more that Dr. Cockroach is voiced by Hugh Laurie) and decided to think other possible atheist/scientific exclamations, like:

"By Darwin's beard!"

"By Sagan's eyebrows!" or maybe "By Sagan's turtleneck!"

And these I don't like so much, since sound kind of religious:

"Good Science!" / "Oh my Science!" / "Science help us!"

I may not use this a lot on real talk, but I have used a couple online, on tweets and Facebook, and I like them.

Do any of you use something similar? Can you think of any other exclamation?

Haha I just use random gods be they completely made up recently or completely made up thousands of years ago.
Examples: Andraste's bosom! Zeus's beard! Krishna's testies!
good one & feel the same and one plenty of occassions I swear, God can sue me.
I used Oh My Zeus for quite a while, but got tired of it. These are excellent!
FRACK!
Now if we are cursing using scifi slang, I am more of a browncoat so I'd use "gorram" and if I could pronounce right the Chinese cursing in Firefly I'd curse in Chinese all the time.
I heard someone recently say, "Oh my lack of god".  I liked that.  Otherwise, I find myself saying Oh my god all the time, too.  I've been looking for something to replace it with.  Maybe this will give us a plethora of exclamations to choose from.
For The Lack Of God!!!
I use "Oh my FSM!" a lot. :)
Ramen!
Ramen indeed.
me and my friend use that, as well "FSM bless you", and "FSM be thanked!"

I just got done watching Spartacus, they liked using the phrase "Jupiter's Cock!", probably not the best example, but may help in brainstorming something.
