  • Only 0.6% of the US population is atheist. Since it is so common for people to say oh my god you can't blame it on atheists. Why would an atheist say oh my god since they don't believe in supernatural beings? I'm atheist and have never said it in my life. My adult children have never said it, they are agnostic/atheist.

  • How come during 9-11 everyone was crying out to God for help? You don't hear any survivors saying "Oh I thought it was the end, but I lived" "I guess I got lucky" You hear them saying "I cried out to God, I thank God I'm alive".

  • I have a friend who is athiest. I have learned a lot about it. According to him, a TRUE athiest does not say it. He also told me that they don't say other 'prayers' like "help me" and "can I get a break"
