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 quite fancy the ones used in the Harry Potter books:

"Merlin’s pants!"

"what in the name of Merlin’s most baggy Y Fronts"

"by Merlin's saggy left..."

Honestly, it's like trying to chop stone necks with a blunt axe!

Blimey!

Cor!

Good Grief!

Well I never!

Why?  A loud Goddamn it!  is a good way to let people know you arent superstitious

It isn't though? You are calling to God to damn something that you are not happy about.

Billions of blue blistering barnacles?

hehe!

Another Haddock fan I see.

I am 55 , so kind of OLD.. so, sorry if these sound antiquated, but I usually say "Oh my goodness" and "oh dear" and "good grief". They are really neutral, don't upset anybody, and I suppose they make me sound like Aunt Bea on the Andy Griffith show, but what the heck...:)

They are indeed neutral and as such, very worthy. I feel however that they are so close to Oh my God, Dear God, and Good God that they may fall into the calling God by proxy.

OYG - Oh YOUR God!

or... you could just do this:

HOLY SHIT!

Oh yeah! I'm into Spongebob cursing now - LOL:

BARNACLES!

Ha I taught my 3 year old nephew that. Priceless moments.
