Tell a saying you heard before that have to do with evolution, religion, culture, science, superstition, beliefs, luck, omens, blessings, or etc. of the like that seem to have been circulating in the world. If you can do so, state where/who it originated from.

I'll start off:

"When Hell freezes over."

"You (or: we, or: I) dont have a snowball's chance in Hell."

"The day when pigs fly."

"Over my dead body!"

"Do chickens have lips?"

"Dog gon' it!"

"Damn it to Hell!"

"Luck be a lady tonight."

"Bite me."

"God bless you!" (**usually said after someone sneezes)

^^I dont know the origins to any of 'em, but I think Luck be a lady tonight may have been from some song.

Add on...

Hmmm. You're talking about spending a half hour on a single post. Maybe someone else has that kinda time just to participate in a thread, but I don't.

Here is a site that list idioms and meanings. You would have to do some serious research on some seriously useless knowledge to list everything you are asking.
