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.

Blistering barnacles

"It scared the BEJEEZUS out of me!"

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 --
