Curiously though, I was just in Italy, sneezed getting on the plane and an Italian said bless you. :D

which then feels slightly less sincere given that I am an atheist.

Quite a few people adopt what the Germans say gesundheit, meaning health. Though I don't, I feel the phrase (given context) has separated itself from religious connotations.
Greeks also say Yitses, wich means health too in a cute tone. :)

Maybe they spoke english, most of the people i have seen there especially those who dont speak English or are from the southern part say salute.

For calamity:

I did not know that, I see, maybe we should look at cultures that were out of english influence to see what other things people say. Prime candidates would be china and japan, i would ask some of my chinese friends.
zenitsu >>>>> tanjiro

change my mind
Why ?
Chinese can say God bless you.

cultures that were out of english influence

Somebody must be missing out on the history of Hong Kong, and more generally of unequal treaties with China.
for Marquis Thornwald:

i was talking about cultures that had resisted erosion from western ideas.

this goldmine does exist.

anyone can say anything , it is about what they say in their culture. And i am not here to comment on politics so i wont respond to the latter half of your post.
There are dozen Chinese films whose main theme is the struggle to resist European influence and modernism and stay true to Chinese traditions but I can see you are closed to an open talk.
but I can see you are closed to an open talk.

How you see that from the little information that is provided to you by my demeanor on a forum is beyond me, but then again , you can be as arrogant and illogical as you please.

secondly, the existence of films regarding anything is immaterial as a valid argument, as the details art are a reflection of society and the art itself is reflective of the culture.


i am very open to open talk but this forum unfortunately is not.
Why ?

for Murali:

IDK man maybe there are some tanjiro fanboys hiding who will take the bait.
