But you have a vocabulary problem related to the fact that you cannot cut with your
education which has impose to you only one notion of God.
Why should there be more than one notion designated by "God". The Abrahamic religions use
the word to designate a particular notion: an omniscience, omnipotent, benevolent creator
person who wants us to worship him. Together their adherents constitute 54% of those who
believe in a theist god. And if we take your view that atheists and agnostics use the
same definition, then 70% of people use that same meaning. If there's some other notion,
why not call it something else.
