Have you, as an atheist, ever been frustrated by the fact that so many swears are religious? Ever felt like slapping yourself upside the head after reflexively saying, “Jesus Christ!” or “Oh God!” or “holy shit?”
Why waste our breath with calls to a nonexistent god (or a zombie)? We might as well be swearing to a god who would be worthwhile. Personally, I now swear to Ullr, the patron saint of ski bums everywhere! But pick your own, have fun with it, and see how many of the religious you can confuse!
Ullr, that steak was good!
Oh Ullr, I dropped a hammer on my foot!
