If some one were to tell one who does not believe in God f... your g-d. Would that be using the lords name in vein? I only ask because technically they don't believe in god. So they don't have a god to say f... to.

Well, I have a different view of what using a name in vain means. I don't view the above example as such but instead as a derogatory insult and it sounds like it was received as such. To me, using a name in vain would be to use it in a manner that diminishes, devalues, excessively prideful, in essence full of hubris. For me the saying as an example, "My God is the Most High God" is hubris and vain.
