A long time ago, a good friend of mine was learning Arabic, and he was showing me how in that language the name of the divine reality changes in different grammatical circumstances. "God in the dative case," he remarked. I thought that was funny.
But trying to explain a joke (admittedly a private one) to you lot is clearly a mug's game. (I mean that affectionately.) I guess I won't quit my day job yet.
My 'nick' isn't one. I am also a mediocre-at-best chess player, but that's a coincidence.
I call myself an atheist because the shoe fits, but the idea that the divine cannot be said to exist because of the inadequacy of human categories such as 'existence' to qualify it has always seemed appealing. (Negative theology. Or, as a Sufi friend once explained it to me, the meaning of 'Allahu akbar' is: 'the divine reality surpasses human understanding.')
who cares! It's not about me.
