To those who don't believe in a god: Do you use phrases that refer to a deity?
“Oh, my god!”
“God knows that….”
“I’m sure as hell that…”
Personally, I feel awkward saying “God knows how much I love Slurpees,” because I don’t actually believe that He does know how much I love Slurpees, because I don’t believe that He exists. However, it’s hard to kick the habit of using that wording when it comes out so naturally.
Do other atheists use these phrases?
