Have you ever wondered how religion has influenced our language just try exclaiming!!!!

  • OMG!
  • Good God!
  • Oh God!
  • Jesus Christ!
  • Gor blimey! (God blind me)
  • Crikey! (Christ's keys) etc etc

Does anyone have any decent non-theist exclamations? 

Thanks : )

It certainly is not a silly gesture. Becoming conscious of how far religion has rooted itself into daily life to the point that we unconsciously speak Christian is a step (a small step no doubt) in the direction of freeing us from the tentacles of organised religion.

With a two year old in the house I have to try to keep things as clean as possible.. though sometimes I do slip.. LOL

I most often use exclamations with god or hell or holy in them but I do use these too: What the Fuck?, What on Earth?, Shit!, Crap!, Fuck!, Fucking-A!

NO NO NO NO NO! Polite fucking conversation. Do you people have no shame? Exclamations I can use in front of my frail upstanding Grandma.

'Thundering Typhoons!', as well as anything else that Captain Haddock says.

In Quebecois they use church terms as well:

Tabernak!

Calisse!

Ostie!

But for a good, non-theistic expletive, I prefer, "cock juggling thunder cunts!"

I think I saw a movie like that once... 

Blade. It wasn't good.

@Heather. You are so badass. My grandma would box your ears for such language.

Quite a number, but they all involve bodily functions --
