انشالله للملحدين

I have used inshallah in casual emails. I didn't realize that makes me a hipster. I don't believe in any god that might will anything, but I think the word (actually, it is a portmanteau of three words) does seem to convey something different than the word "hopefully." From my atheist lips (or nonbelieving typing fingers) I think it implies that the hoped-for thing probably won't happen.
