swearing has nothing to do with religious beleifs,you learn the language from the eariest days,just because a person does not beleive in your god or in my case Gods and Goddesses,means the name"god"is being used in a religious form. I hope this helps you understand it a bit better. Many Blessings.

ok,sorry I'll try again. basically all children learn to swear at a very young age,in many cases,before thier parents force them into the family religion,so even if they change to agnostic or athiest,the swearwords stay. in many cases,it is no more than a learned word of dericion. I hope that is better. Many Blessings.

LOL ... it is just a habit, not a prayer. They say Oh God or Jesus or maybe the name of any other deity they are acquainted with simply out of force of habit. It means nothing to them. Half of the time, they don't even notice that they are saying it. Swearing need not necessarily mean faith. Cheers and happy mylotting
