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 : )

I have to concur jove is definitely Jupiter aka. Zeus if you will. I heard my father say by jove's beard though I've never been able to slip it into conversation.

"By Odin's beard" I've heard said before.. 

Thrall's Balls! From World of Warcraft. Thrall was the leader, until recently, of one of the two major factions in the game.

I stick to the saying I first heard Bender say on Futurama. Oh your god.

The most religious I get with my exclamations is "Sweet zombie Jesus!" 

I like Bender's but he is so confrontational. I'd like to use that with christians. Litmus test though is my grandma. 

Holy random chance Batman!

 

Help me baby cheeses!

Oh no - I love using these and elaborating them

"Jesus Christ shit the bed and had a haircut",  "Christ on a windsurfer" or on special occasions "Jesus c*nting Christ" I have used on occasion, mainly as it really pisses of Theists. You have to remember the more hardcore, the more they hate blasphemy which to me is a carte blanche to exercise my militant atheism and ridicule them.

So yes you could say religion has influenced my language :o)

Would you say these things to your lovely great aunt who doesn't like a potty-mouth?

Nothing I'd use in polite company...

Oh c'mon, spill the beans!
