An atheist friend spoke of his childhood sweetheart and now wife as his 'soulmate'. But isn't that a contradiction?

Don't atheists say we've got no souls

    The term "soulmate" is independent of believing in a soul.

    Christians constantly use the word 'Thursday'. This is blasphemy, as they are saying that a day of the week belongs to Thor.

    You can use a common expression without literally believing the words. Have you ever said "Holy Cow" and not literally meant that you consider cattle to be sacred?

    Some say that. And some atheists believe in reincarnation and souls but not gods. Why is this so hard for you to understand?

    I believe you're taking the term a little too literally,,, if you sneeze and he says "bless you" do you instantly assume he believes in God,, or do you understand it's just what people say.

    It's like saying "Holy snapping duck shìt"

    Most of us know duck shìt doesn't snap.
