That's another of mine. I really like the hymns from church. I've just started learning violin and one of the books I'd like to buy is the music book my church uses (see confession about still going to church.. also cos I like it:/ )
I can put it down to the music though, really. I've seen people go off in worship sessions and think it's the Holy Poltergeist, but I get exactly the same feelings from Live - Pillar of Davidson and other such songs. They're anthemic, and they please me.
I'm an Angels Baseball fan!
I also say "Jesus!" when I'm amazed at something, but I look at it more as taking gods name in vain, which I'm glad to do, so it's kind of okay I suppose.
That's at least three Hail Darwins.
Forgive me father for I have sinned
My parents still think I believe in God
I went to church a couple of weeks go because they were having an all you can eat pasta dinner after the service.
When people say God bless you I say "U2"
I have not yet posted my "religious views" on facebook as "atheist"
Sometimes I wish I would have taken the blue pill instead
As society evolves this will change, infact v have to work hard to speed up this evolution.
I also use these kind of terms when interacting wd ppl in everyday life
I think v have to do this just to avoid our heart getting hurt
I find myself saying "Good Lord" or "swear to God" a lot. It's more of an empty exclamation than a assertion of any kind of truth.
I also can't seem to shake this feeling that there is something watching over me. I know it's just a mix of wishful thinking, confirmation bias, and God knows what... (oops!) but the feeling sticks with me nonetheless.
Bless me O'Lord Sagan/Dawkins/Hume for I have sinned...
I argue with others about being a Chicago Cubs fan and using the word "Faith" and using it as my only excuse to be a Cubs fan. One day we will win, "You Gotta Have Faith"
I won a few games of Liars Dice and jokingly yelled "Praise Jesus" as I was taking their money!!!
I apologized to a christian lady for saying "God Damnit" because it was offensive to her religious beliefs.
I have yet to tell my Mother I am an atheist...
For my punishment I will solve 5 Boundary Value Differential Equations problems.
I guess my biggest sin is that I still celebrate Christmas, and I sometimes use the expression 'oh my god'
My family owns a non-denominational (but predominately Catholic) funeral home so I "attend" mass often but not by choice. It is very hard to participate because it just fuels the rage I have towards the church. The only thing that keeps me going is the thought that I'm being paid to "believe" (that and saying OYG to my father all the time). Luckily, my 13 years of Catholic school have taught me how to play the game well.
I am surrounded by very religious people because of my schooling and family business so I have trained myself not to use the normal "god damn it" or "for christ's sake". Instead, I like to substitute all different names like Thor, Ra, and Osiris just to make a point.
I use the words alllllll the time. The husband and I both say bless you. He says salud when our daughter sneezes. I also say Jesus Christ!, OMG, Good God, Good Lord, Holy crap, Goddammit, and all other sorts of expletives that curl the hair of little old ladies.
Sometimes I try to get out of doing housework on Sundays. Because, you know...no working on Sundays lololol.
