When considering the manner whereby Vlad Dracula becomes undead, the vampire Dracula, in the movie Bram Stoker's Dracula, there are a few issues which correlate Dracula becoming undead and atheists rejecting YHVH.

Actually? I have read the novel, and I see a strong parallel between Dracula and your Jewsus' character:

** both are immortal
** both advocate drinking blood
** both use magic to do and get what they want
** both are happy to destroy anyone or anything that stands in their way (Jewsus in the money-temple, lest you forgot)
** both insist on unwavering loyalty to them, from their slaves--erm--"followers "
** both take possession of their follower's wills
** both insist on slave-like adoration from their followers
** both died, both came back from the dead

But the A-Number-One point that makes Dracula and Jesus nearly identical?

BOTH ARE PURE-D FICTIONAL CHARACTERS.

Slam and dunk. Great job, Bob!

Linking atheism with vampires--it's those wacky fanatics again. BTW, what's with the YHWH thing? Doesn't Yahweh know we're talking about him? Is he that stupid? Must be, because he keeps getting fooled by the whole G-D thing--that's pretty st-pid...

It goes back to old Hebrew culture.

There are two schools of thought where the "don't write 'god' with vowels-in" came from.

The oldest idea is that the Hebrew language simply has no vowels in it's spelling rules. And the Greek-Jews were in the habit of writing the name of their god in Hebrew (even when otherwise writing in Greek), and later in Greek--(which has vowels) but to mark it as 'special', they would leave out the vowels in Greek, too.

The later idea is it's a kind of sort of respect thing.

Out of respect, they eliminate the vowels, because to actually write the full name would be to invoke some sort of magical thing--

-- the dogma goes that the words >>are<< the thing you write about, and to be so bold as to write the full name of god would be to invite unwanted attention.

Remember the bible-tale about the poor sot, who touched the Ark of the Covenent without permission? He was instantly killed, just from daring to try to steady the Ark as it was about to fall over-- he invited unwanted attention from god and it killed him for his trouble.

The Hebrews' concept of their god was one of avoidance-- it's best to avoid undue godly attention if you are able.

Their god was not one to suffer fools (or really, anyone for that matter) lightly, and was more apt to just kill your ~ss as anything.

So when you write about god, you don't want his undivided attention, so you leave out the vowels...

... not unlike...

... dare I say it? Voldemort.
