If there is no God or Jesus, why do people curse them?

    If there is no God or Jesus, why do people curse them when they get angry?
    This is just my observation and to me evidence that Jesus is truly the Son of God. Noone ever say's oh F'ing Buddha or Allah damn it? But yet people who have no knowledge of Jesus spout out things like Jesus F'ing Christ and such in anger?

            How do u plan to enforce this then?

            "no one should be allowed to say such things about so great personalities"

            If I should not be allowed to say something - how are you going to make me not be allowed?

              This is something about moral, i am not enforcing it but i am just saying that sticking your fingers in your nose in public is a bad behavior and dont mix this with your revolution against religion, it can be about our late parents,grand parents, local genuis, national heroes, scientist, martyr, soldiers or anybody

                I find your actions to lack morals and sense, and decency and just about anything else that could be seen as wrong.

                Your individual religious belief is NOT your personal weapon to be used, learn your damn religion. And, before you say it again... you are NOT an atheist if you have a belief in god.

                Secondly, if you have a belief in god, then you are religious, even if you don't go to church or anything else. The word god is a metaphor from religion, and you cannot use it, without being a part of religion. Got it? I hope so.

      You speak Urdu, Arabic, Hebrew and Ancient Greek then? How very interesting. I assume also that you do not live in a place where English is the common language.

      Where do u live by the way?

      Edit - I see. You have never met anyone who speaks Urdu then? Surely that proves Buddha is the true god? lol

        I live in Nepal and english is not my common langauge and i know you are an atheist mark and i too although believe in god but dont follow any religion for that purpose but you know no matter what langauge you speak but using some of bigger personality name as or in a slang word is not appropiate behaviour even if you defend it as a common thing or as mass habbit for native english speakers and be it jesus, buddha or einstien, its wrong to diss them for nothing.

      People say stuff like that when they're angry because it's part of our linguistic heritage. We say what we say because we grew up hearing other people saying it.

      Someone once said "You can tell a person's native language by the language he uses when he hits his finger with a hammer."

      You can also (often) tell what his friends and family said when they hit their fingers with a hammer back in the day.

      We also say stuff like, "Holy cow!"

      Is that 'evidence' that Vishnu is the creator of the universe, and the Shiva the Destroyer will be fulfilling the Mayan prophecies in 2012?

      I think you are confusing 'cursing' as it pertains to the Bible and cursing as it pertains to slang.

      Biblical cursing sorta like voodoo, damning spells, black magic, hexing...

      Cursing as it is used today is just slang.  Has nothing to do with voodoo or praise.  Sh*t = poop, dick = jerk, bitch = mean girl... my favorite is the 'f' word.  It can be used in so many different ways and I think you could actually make a proper sentence using just that word. 

      Ie: F**k**g f**k*er *uc*. lol

        Being Australian the F word is hard wired and can be inserted between any two words, or even in the middle of them such as in Johnny bloody Howard our ex Prime Minister.
        Or George F***ing Bush for the esteemed former fact fiddler with the fried brain.


        Cursing implies more fairies and other bull*hit. smile

      Because, the words have been integrated into the cultural language. hmm

    One of my favorite uses of Jesus was from the Trey Parker movie "Team America" - I don't think I'll repeat it here, though. smile

    Profanity exists to offend, and to shock. That is why profanity is virtually always scatological, sexual, or blasphemous. If it isn't violating taboo, then it lacks power.

      I had the great opportunity to see Brian Burke give a seminar on leadership. He said that the use of profanity in the NHL was crucial in making sure a player or players heard and understood the coach crystal clear. It was essentially used to get the players attention. smile
