Thank God, what's the alternative?

The other day I was pondering on this.Most people use the expression "Thank God" on a regular basis.I don't believe in God but still use this expression.I don't really care because after all it's just a saying but I was wondering what else you could say and if non-believers, particularly atheists had banned themselves from  ever saying it.Just crazy thoughts in my ever wandering mind.
Anyway, today I came across this quote,quite funny, don't you think?

The worst moment for the atheist is when he is really thankful and has nobody to thank.
- Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Of course, you should always have somebody you can thank, shouldn't be too hard ...

And just for the record, all beliefs are respected in this blog apart from extremists and fundamentalists

    I am not an atheist, but I always feel more comfortable saying "Thank Goodness!" in mixed company. :)
