Ok heres a conundrum - People who argue against christianity have no basis on which they can say the word "god" has no meaning, because that word must have a meaning even if the meaning is semantic rather than symbolic to make the statement "god does not exist" involves a repetition since in the ordinary usage - something that does not exist, simply does not exist therefore it is trivial, but if a christian says "god exists" then it is saying "something which does not exist exists" and thats a contradiction. So the conundrum is that in order to contradict christians atheists and agnostics whatever must first assert how they are using the term "does not exist" to say "god does not exist" first of all asserts the existence of god then denies it - infact "god exists" and "god does not exist" both contain contradictory terms implicit within themseves whilst also contradicting each other !!!!! ! how do you get around this ?
