    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.

    That's how a lot of Christians use the word so it would be completely backwards and disrespectful if an atheist said it
    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."

    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. =]
    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.

    People are used to saying that, whether they belive in god or not. It's just one of those common phrases. I still see what you mean by hypocrite by the way...

    That's blasphemy because it undermines the church's influence. We are god. One of the fundamental teachings of the church is to look at god as something external. Keep at it if you want. Ignorance is a choice in this age of reasoning and information.

    Re: Why do Atheists...

    Cause it's an phrase that's it used in general in many occasions to show surprise,frustration,distress etc,etc.
    It's an idiom everybody learn from a young age and use it due to social and environmental influences.
    And yes,all we atheists are hypocrites and we deserve to burn in hell to eternity and beyond and other cliches like that.
    Now get over your self

    Re: Why do Atheists...

    Religion is engraved in our daily life expressions, plus it sounds sarcastic in the way it is used in contemporary times, sort of poking fun at those that pray in a difficult situation.

    This also backs up what I said before, making fun of relics in a way.
    Yes, I quoted myself.
