30. Correct.
I think so much of the arguments and ensuing animosity on DU, the R/T and in life in general comes from misperceptions of what others believe and are really trying to say.

Exactly. And when someone applies a word incorrectly, even in the face of protest by those the word is being incorrectly applied to, then refuses to acknowledge it, they are being disingenuous and really are just looking to slur someone.

In ANY conversation about "god", I always ask the person who claims that there IS a god, to kindly define what the word "god" means to them. That way there is no misunderstanding when I answer a question or refute an argument.
