Allah, Bless Me
    #569927 - 07/05/11 10:52 PM (5 years, 4 months ago)

I tend not to react to people who say "Bless you" after I sneeze. Or I'd simply respond with "No thank you."

Presuming I believed in god, am I now obliged to congratulate someone on their quickness to react, with thanks? Not everybody is a 'believer', so why accept the gesture? Why do people instinctively say it? Shit's gotten old real quick.

Milhouse from The Simpsons once said it's because your soul escapes when you sneeze, and saying bless you brings it back to the body. 

I just say "Gesundheit" without any expectation of a response. You?

But what if someone said "bless you" to an atheist? they could possibly take it as an insult.

religion has wonderous ways of sparking different emotions in people. tis crazayy.

If an atheist takes it as an insult, it is because he is a moron, "bless you" is totally a good thing to say, if you get mad at someone for this, he should just understand it is not because he doesn't believe in God that people cannot talk of religions to him, why always separate when you can live together peacefully?

i can agree with this. i basically avoided saying it to not get a rise from some folks. its just crazy how its embedded into our reflex systems and we say it without question.

btw i say 'pika' right before 'chooo' as opposed to ahh-choo. :lol:

perhaps i'm just seeing this from a selfish attitude. ever since i got into a discussion earlier about the casey anthony trial my mood has been off today and totally close-minded.

sometimes i catch myself saying bless you to people. i've grown up around peers of different religions and am pretty tolerant to them.

i sound like tracy mogan now :lol:

I never say anything. In fact, sometimes I just keep sneezing. And they keep saying "God bless you" :lol: ...as if that does something. What if I were a Satanist, hmm?

Next time it happens, I'm going to say, "QUIET...I'm trying to sneeze over here(dumbass)!"

I just say Gesundheit, but yea I do not understand the God Bless You thing.  If God blessed me I would not be sneezing in the first place.  Should say God Damn You

most folks just say "bless you". "god bless you" is reserved for the full on religious types. either way i don't mind it. everyone should be blessed now and then regardless of your religious views. :awedance:  :awedance:

I hate when people say, "God Bless You." I don't fuckin believe in god so he didn't bless shit. I like to say, "Satan Posses You" instead. It pisses Christians off and I find it humorous. Or I'll just simply say, "Posses You".
