Because the word "god", even capitalised, is not defined. It's vague, and essentially meaningless until it is defined.

Meaningless to whom?

Meaningless as a noun. Nouns are supposed to convey sufficient information for both people to understand the same concept. When talking to believers in gods and God, very rarely do you find that 2 of them share the same ontological descriptions of their shared divine being.

When I say 'Richard Dawkins' you know precisely who I am talking about, even if neither of us know anything about him as a person.
