What do we really mean when we talk about God?
When we talk about God we are attempting to communicate ideas that have a varying meaning between people, communities, religions etc. If these ideas don't correspond with one another can what we say about God have any meaning other than a personal meaning?
Though I have said God, I of course mean any religious deity and the question might extend to moral and aesthetic statements as well.
The question came up in my philosophy studies and any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
