Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: News24

Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

"Indeed, it would be rather juvenile to misspell God simply in order to insult theists.

http://atheism.about.com/od/doesgodexist/a/ca...

"The use of capitalization, as for a proper noun, has persisted to disambiguate the concept of a singular God, specifically the Christian God, from pagan deities for which lower case god has continued to be applied, mirroring the use of Latin deus. Pronouns referring to God are also often capitalized and are traditionally in the masculine gender, i.e. "He", "Him", "His" etc.[12][13] However, some people have referred to God in feminine terms, such as "She" and "Her". "

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_ (word)

"god-– Lowercase this when used as a prefix. Examples: godchild, goddaughter, godfather, godlike, godliness, godmother, godsend, godson, godspeed. Do not hyphenate
gods and goddesses – Capitalize God and similar names of the deity of a monotheistic religion: Allah, God, God the Father, Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit, Jehovah, Jesus Christ, the Redeemer, the Son of God, the Son of Man, Yahweh. Lowercase the personal pronouns he, him, thee, they, thou, who, whose, in references to monotheistic deities. Lowercase gods andgoddesses in references to the deities of polytheistic religions, but capitalize formal names. Lowercase god in references to false gods. He made money her god."

God is not a name, it is a title.
To proclaim one god as The God is obnoxious and disrespectful to other religious people.

The best part? Autocorrect doesn't capitalize the first letter of god, and even better, it doesn't even capitalize the first letter in "Jesus," even though that IS a proper noun.

Anyway, in short, you're complaining about people that don't coddle Christians, you aren't talking about the English language.
In the English language, "god" is most appropriate while "God" is not.
Unless you know an individual in person named God?

Former NBA player "God Shammgod" is an actual person and the only time I will capitalize the word 'god'. Until I am made aware of another actual person that has that name, and I need to reference it in a post, it will remain lower case unless I start a sentence with it.

BTW... how many names does the Christian god have anyway?

So If you do not capitalise a title why do we capitalise Dr, Mr, Mrs, Ms, Miss, Prof, and about 2500 more. You reaction to the "Christian" God is amazing you are nothing more than a lost little fart with no one to stink up so you come here with your verbal diarrhoea and spew all over the place.

It is very simple in a Judaeo-Christian society 'God' means the God of the Bible 'god' means the rest. Should be a simple fact even for a moron like you. The fact that you insist to use 'god' for every thing only proves that you are ignorant of the linguistic rules of the English language.

As for God's name he only has one it is a Hebrew name transliterated like this 'YHVH", once again simple.

It is a threat and "Turd" it is then.

You have no evidence this everlasting fire exists.

Religion is for frightened infantile minds who prefer absurdities to uncertainties.

If your above statement is correct you must live in constant fear. I feel sorry for you.

One day you will know that there is everlasting fire made just for you.
