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.

If your god does not exist, then he is a false god. Until you can prove your god exists, lowercase is correct.

^^^ Isn't it sad he literally has nothing to say. All he can do is copy and paste the same spam over and over again. That's it.
He is wasting bandwidth and is being reported each time he does it.

Your god is false, all gods are false.

Lowercase g applies unless it's used to begin a proper noun.

1. Then you are talking about semantics because, frankly, the distinction escapes me.

2. Good.

3. Check the reports from sub-Saharan Africa. Some of the most violent places on Earth exist where Islam pushes it's way south, deeper into Africa.

4. People in the West suffer the misconception that tolerance and appeasement will dull the sword of Islamic expansionism. I am rather impressed with how Islamic leaders are taking advantage of this fact to "spread the gospel" and infiltrate Western society. Very clever.

5. The "very clever" people in #4 are not blind to the powers of propaganda and a good advertising campaign. Hell, it put someone named Barack Hussein Obama into the presidency of the Great Satan. Incredible. Besides, housecleaning often involves sweeping things under the carpet rather than truly disposing of it.
Ans.

1 & 2. How can one offer comments to these mystic response?

3. It is not Islam which is the cause of problem. It is something different. It is ethnic, racial, linguistic and tribal issues. You re-check your "facts"

4. No one in the west suffers because of "Sword of Islam"… It is the west which is holding the Sword and threatening Muslims and trying to take "revenge" for their humiliation at the hands of Muslims for so many centuries.

Islam has "God given Right" to preach its message to every one in the world. It is not cleverness, it is our "Duty" as a Muslim.

5. Barrak Hossain Obama "declared publicly that he is not a Muslim" what else you people want?

What he did for islam and Muslims in the world since becoming President? Just giving a few speeches (for which he was "awarded" Nobel peace Prize" enough?

Did he not "growled" before Jewish and Zionists lobby in USA that he would do his utmost to guarantee Safety, Security and Integrity of Israel?

And there are so many Christian Priests, and Bishops who have Muslim sounding Names (because they left Islam and accepted Christianity), no one objects why they have Muslim names?

In fact they feel proud and use those Muslim names to use as a "bait" for other Muslims!!

Why shouldn't Israel be able to live and exist in peace? Perhaps if Muslims stopped attacking them for a while they wouldn't need to increase their defenses?

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.
Since when did Enlish become a Judeao-Christian language? Also, only one third of the world is Christian. Some call Allah a god, some call Thor a god, yet others have called Isis a goddess.

You capitalize YOUR god all you please, the rest of us are not bound by your self imposed rules.
