The point was that man limits with words. No magic. Just working outside the limitations of words. God makes a six sided object it is man who gives it labels. Labels are not the object.

The problem here is, in one sentence you say how limiting words can be, then after that, you fail to use your words properly. You are intentionally trying to warp the truth with your use of words.

"God makes a six sided object, it is man who gives it labels."

SHOULD read:

"man sees a six sided object, and assigns it a label."

You try to toss in god, as though he's needed to explain labeling things. Not the case.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

This sounds like an argument in progress. Why start a new thread with a response to someone else's argument???

It would be, wouldn't it? It would be awesome to think whatever thoughts you want without a celestial dictator telling you that you're an evil person for thinking certain thoughts. It would be awesome to do harmless things like have consensual sex or watch porn and not feel bad about it.

You believe that someone who gives you exactly zero privacy (even inside your own mind), trusts you not even slightly, tells you what to do and when to do it, gives you weak evidence of his existence and weak arguments to defend it, and makes you feel like crap when you do harmless actions is someone worthy of being worshiped. Go ahead, knock yourself out, but trying to make us feel bad for not living lives with that kind of torture just won't be effective.

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.

That's a seriously ignorant, and childish perception. Sorry you have a guilt complex Theist-The-Guilty. Morality does not come from gods. A-theists are just as ethical as people who do things because sky-daddy is watching. Would you STILL worship without heaven or hell ? THAT is the question. Actually the fact that many atheists do good, volunteer etc, without the promise of a reward proves that the burden to prove theists are altruists, for altruism's sake is on you. You do things because you are rewarded and punished. A-theists do things because they are true altruists. So thanks for bringing this up. Yet again, a theist refutes himself.

BTW, I already killed and raped everyone I need to. How many do you have in mind that you would kill and rape and cheat if your imaginary god did not exist in your imagination ?
What exactly do you want to do that your god is keeping you from doing ?

Would the corollary to this be... If a god exists, can he/she/it not create the world?

If so, who did?

Well he is basically asserting that atheists do not truly understand god, because we are busy playing word games.

This post reminds me of the times my dad would get really drunk and try to say something profound.
