That's what happens when the religiously deluded have thousands of years head start on infecting and shaping society.

I try to avoid religious phrases as much as possible in day to day speech but it certainly isn't easy.

Have fun with it! When I hear "oh my god!", which is a LOT, I quickly respond "Mine too!" which really confuses people. I like saying "Holy Hera!" which I heard on a Disney movie once. Of course 'Ramen!' is a nice finisher if you're Pastafarian.

My wife doesn't like "bless you", so to her, I say gesundheit. To those who say "bless you", I'll say the same when they sneeze. I personally don't care about it.

I'm Canadian, so when I sneeze, I apologize.




(seriously, I do sneeze about once a day in the office, and can't help apologizing to my co-workers, who generally chuckle because my sneezes are so unexpectedly violent and yet predictable)
