    Why do Atheists...

    Why do Atheists say, "Oh my God", and stuff like that? Isn't that hypocritical? :D

    Re: Why do Atheists...

    Well wouldn't a Christian saying "Oh my God" count as improper usage of the Lord's name? =P

    Whether or not any given person believes that, I feel like it's just become a very common saying in society. But who knows for sure!

    Just my thoughts. =]

    ,
    I believe its popular culture influencing them..
    Being an atheist does not mean that they have a bubble around them from their surroundings..

    Re: Why do Atheists...

    "oh my god" has become a well-known phrase. (foreign people like, chinese and japanese use that term out of humour) people use the term un-religiously, but people say a bunch of crazy stuff these days. it's normal in my opinion. we are capable of using our mouths for a reason, no? i say its just harmless emotional-expression.

    It's better just not to start these topics. Escalation will come, and it will not be friendly.

    It's just a turn of speech, it doesn't matter that much.

    It is a modern Idiom devoid of meaning, the same way Atheists celebrate christmas without belief, it's apart of our culture.

    Re: Why do Atheists...

    Haha, it's just something you pick up, when heard a lot. I say that phrase a lot, and people just say it when they're frustrated or something. They don't mean it literally, but I guess they should refrain from saying it.

    For the most part, yes. That's why I personally say, "Oh my gosh". It's not irreverent and it's a viable option as opposed to, "Oh my God".

    If you're going to be hypocritical, than Christians or Muslims saying "Oh my god" is blasphemy.

    Actually it is wrong for anyone to say gods name in vain but if you say oh my God as though your calling out for him then its not in vain because your not just saying it to say it
    That's how a lot of Christians use the word so it would be completely backwards and disrespectful if an atheist said it

    Blasphemy is saying you yourself are God. For example: "I'm God." That's blasphemy.
    And I don't see anything wrong with singing "Oh my God" in a song or something like that.

    A word has as much meaning as you allow it to have. Simply don't mind it, and you're cool. This thread makes sense only to simpletons.

    It's not very common that Christians mean it in a non expressive way. It's exactly the same as "aw crap" or "damn it."

    Both you and the OP have a point. However, it is the societys usage of "Oh my God" that is improper usage of the Lords name. There are some contexts, that it can be used, without useing the Lords name in vane.

    That is all.
