When you hear "God" used in an argument (that is NOT about religion), does this generally cause you to lose some respect for the argument itself?
Sometimes. I look at it as a lazy explanation to a problem
Doesnt offend me, but I see it used as a cop out usually.
For example ...
Well it was gods will, or well I dont know it isnt for me to judge god, etc ...
Not necessarily. Although, I rarely hear the word "God" used in a non-religious argument, unless it is being used in the phrase "oh my god".
I'll hear sometimes used like "well God says we should..." or "well God put us here for.." etc.
It offends me when religious people automatically assume that I believe in a god.
