After almost a lifetime of wrangling with the idea of whether or not there existed some kind of a "magical" being i'm very happy and content in my personal conclusion that there is not! I read other peoples thoughts and arguments about the subject but for me it is all moot. its a personal decision each person makes or doesn't on their own However i'd like to ask anyone who may know, how does an Atheist like me acknowledge someone when they sneeze?
I usually say "Gesundheit", which means "good health". Alternatively, Spanish-speakers say "Salud", which interestingly also means "good health". (If someone sneezes three three times, you're supposed to say "Krankheit". Guess what that means?)
This is what I go with too. We don't say anything for a belch, fart, hiccup, cough, etc, why acknowledge a sneeze. Seems arbitrary and archaic to me. Well, to be fair, a good fart always gets a comment.
