How would you say, "God Bless You" or "Bless you" in their terms?

If an Atheist sneezes...he immediately accuses a political Christian of infecting him with the cold when he stood too next to him on the bus, which makes them a public menace.

(Then he goes home, locks his door, takes 20 cases of Emergen-C, and starts posting on the Internet about the spread of the Ebola virus.)

Most athiests don't care what you say, but gesundheit just means "health" so you can go with that.

did being an atheist become a meme last night or am i just hallucinating.

Btw, i dont really care what anyone says when i sneeze. The fact is the whole god bless thing is less a religions thing and more of a english colloquialism. Its the same thing when you curse and say Jesus Christ, though mostly i just say fuck and shit.

I usually remain quiet but then when I sneeze I don't know how to response back since I don't believe in god >_> or any of that nonsense~

As an Atheist, I agree with this. It's just a colloquialism and I don't even think twice about it. It's just a polite gesture from one person to another acknowledging your sneeze and making it so that you don't feel awkward for making a loud ass noise and spreading germs from your nose. I even catch myself saying it to others. It's just a saying that has lost its meaning. Honestly, do religious folks here really put so much thought into it by thinking, "I want God to bless this person because they have sneezed"? It's just something you say.

Im sure they bend down and pray every night at their home built chapels for all the people who sneezed that day; hoping god will smite them with anthrax or something.

BTW, never understood the appeal of believing in a man who looks like Jerry Garcia and floats in the clouds.

I say 'Bless you' to everyone out of habit. If they get offended that's their problem.

As an atheist can I ask you why you think we would care ? XD I'm sorry but what you say when wishing me well is all good.
