The actual definition of the word is...
1. impious utterance or action concerning God or sacred things.
2. Judaism. a. an act of cursing or reviling God. b. pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton (YHVH) in the original, now forbidden manner instead of using a substitute pronunciation such as Adonai.
3. Theology. the crime of assuming to oneself the rights or qualities of God.
4. irreverent behavior toward anything held sacred, priceless, etc.: He uttered blasphemies against life itself.
So I would say that by this definition it would be more than possible to be guilty of blasphemy... I mean how many people do you know that seem to think they can make decisions in gods place... We see it all the time on here...

Blasphemy is denying the works of the father, son, and holy spirit. It's unforgivable only for the fact that the person refuses to believe.

I think blaspheming is to insult anything held sacred by a given institution or culture. So for Christians that would mean insulting God, for modern Pagans I suppose that showing blatant disregard for Mother Earth could be blasphemy, for the ancient Greeks it was insulting the gods of the city, maybe for the Shakespeare Foundation calling the works of Wm. Shakespeare garbage is blasphemy. Which means that most of us blaspheme in someone's eyes all the time. What matters, I suppose, is what the institutions you belong to or respect considers blasphemy.

Blaspheme: to cause an uptight Christian's panties to twist in a forceful manner by saying something they disagree with.
