No, the label of "god" is an adjective, not a proper noun. Get over yourself. Your god is no more privileged than the other thousands of gods, because your god has the same amount of evidence as those others.
The word "god" is always a noun as far as I can tell, but when it is used with either the definite or indefinite article or with a possessive, it is quite proper to use it without capitalization. When it is used as a name, though, it becomes a proper noun and should be capitalized as such. For example:

No god worthy of worship would require a man to sacrifice his son.

I killed them because God told me to.

I'm not an English major.:P I messed that up, yeah. I meant noun, but not proper noun. Blame the fact that I'm stuck on a code format problem.

Grammar is inconsequential, really. As long as the meaning is clear, a few grammatical errors or typos are easy to overlook. I make one or two in almost every post. This is a first draft medium, and first drafts are always rife with error--as any editor. That's why grammar nazis are so unloved on internet forums.

So why should anyone accept God as anything more than a product of someone's vivid imagination?

All you theists run away from this question for some reason.

Is that kind of like when you're looking for something and it's always in the last place you looked? After all why keep looking once you found it. If guns we outlawed then yes anyone with a gun would be breaking the law even if the owner never planed on using it for any other criminal intent.
You said:
Oh, mean like the drug war.. or is it the war on terrorism.. or is it the war on childhood obesity?
Not really following you here.
