"Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!!! This thing again. Saying "Oh God" means about as much as "Break a leg." In other words, not to be taken literally. Just like the woman I knew who said "I didn't liberate myself from male…"

"Typically I say 'shit' or 'fuck' but sometimes there just isn't a good replacement for saying 'god damn it'. It's a cultural thing, most of us who are native English speakers are raised to treat 'god damn…"

"Not to brag, but I long ago trained myself to never blurt out appellations to a non-existent deity.  When I feel an "OMIGOD!" coming on, I'm always able to substitute "OMIGOSH!"  Of course, I had some help on that…"

"Yeah I go with "gods" too. It's not that difficult a habit to adopt (doesn't take much time), and if questioned about it, it's easy to just say something like "Well, don't want to leave anybody out." At which…"

"Going to "Oh my Darwin" will simply be interpreted by the other side as evidence that we worship Darwin.  And I hear that stupid accusation (as well as ones that we consider Dawkins a prophet and The God Delusion as a sacred text)…"

"I very rarely use any exclamations of religious background, but then again I never really did in the first place. But if we are to avoid "god damn", and the like due to non belief in the referenced deity does that mean Thursday (and most…"

Stop Saying The G-Word

I have noticed that a lot of atheists and skeptics will still say “Oh my god” or “Jesus” when they are surprised by something.I always tell people, “Don’t use the g-word”, or “Don’t use the j-word.”People will defend the practice by saying that it is due to habit. Some excuse it, saying that it is just part of the culture.For those who say it is habit, I say: Say strong, my naturalistic brothers and sisters. Change your habits to reflect your rational outlook.For those who say it is okay…See More

Portland And Austin

I was in Texas recently for a few days. It was my fifth trip to Texas. I went in May 2010 to Dallas, Austin, Houston and San Antonio. I went in August 2011 to Dallas and Austin. I went in September 2011 to Dallas. I went in April 2012 to Austin, and lastly August 2012 to Austin. Every time I go it feels like a magic land of opportunity.So why a picture of Oregon for this post? I am looking for a job, and I have been speaking with a firm in Portland. The technology they are using seems…See More
