I want to write a philosophical paper for journal publication. It's to be on what has been called "Theological Noncognitivism", "Ignosticism" and "Igtheism". The claim is as follows. "God" (capitalized, not "god" with a small "g"), "Allah", "Yahweh", "Elohim", "Creator of the universe" etc., are not the name [in English] of anything that exists or anything that doesn't exist, or anything that might exist, or anything that might not exist. They are "pseudo-terms" or "pseudo-words" or "pseudo-names", i.e., meaningless (vacuous of coherent meaning) rows of alphabet letters. There are no mental concepts of anything that any of these rows of alphabet letters can refer to. They are just meaningless rows of alphabet letters, although they are regularly spoken and written as though they refer to something. Indeed they trigger emotions in theists. The emotions they feel makes them think the emotions are caused by something that the row of letters "God" refers to. But the emotions are caused by the indoctrination they received as a child. Thus Christians, Jews, and Muslims do not believe in, or worship, any god. They only believe that they do. Yes, theists believe that they believe in something, and that they worship something, labeled "God" even though nothing has ever been defined or described by them or by anybody else for them to believe in. Atheists and agnostics, although they don't believe that they themselves believe in a god, they are wrong because they believe that theists believe in a god when theist don't believe in a god named "God" even though they believe that they do..
I want to stress the fact that language is man-made. No one should ever say "What does this word (or term or sequence of alphabet letters) mean?". They should only ask "What have humans long ago, ("word coiners creating the English language", if you will), through the ages, coined this word (or term or sequence of alphabet letters) and used it to refer to, if anything at all? To say "What does it mean?" automatically implies (begs the question) that it does refer to something. This is the way I want the paper to speak.
IOW I want it to be written mostly in metalanguage (language about language) rather than solely in object language (language about the world). If you can't undertake this can you name somebody who will?
