So people swear on the bible in court (or whatever religious text they want), but does anyone know what atheists do? I mean if I was ever in that situation and they told me to swear on some religious text I'd probably just laugh at them. Has anyone had experience with this?

I've heard of people explaining their religious view to the judge and then making a statement like "I solemnly affirm to tell the truth."

I PRAY that one day I'll have to give witness in a court that requires swearing on a bible...


PLEASE... to all the Gods, Let me be called to the witness stand and be asked to swear on that cursed object... Please... give me the opportunity to say "NO"... 


When a court in the USA brings out a bible they are instantly promoting one particular religion and are against everything the U.S Constitution stands for.
