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.

Do you worship the gods of your peoples, or have you bowed to the men who use the stolen god tool Jehovah? Even the gods of their ancestors have been laid aside so that you might be more quickly conquered with a easily used and dirtier weapon against humanity.
This Asian god "Jehovah" who would make you eat your children, or allow you to rape an infant within seconds of his birth, is who you dare to condemn me for not bowing to? You and MUQ can both eat shit and die. You have made a choice and you stick by it, no matter what you learn of your filthy god.
The Christain bible god would make you eat your children, he is also the same Jewish god who will let a girl three years and one day old be raped into marriage, no marriage license needed, just rape her, with Jehovah's blessing. He is also the same Islamic god, now called Allah, who let's men, brothers, fathers, uncles, and close family friends, of babies "thigh" them as soon as they are born.
"Thighing" means to touch with them with the man's penis, all over their bodies, in their mouths, in their rectums and with girls in the vagina. If they tear the baby girls body, then they have to pay to have her stitched up, because they can't be fucking up her future value to a husband. Thighing is a way to show the baby's mother that she is to shut the fuck up and obey the men, or look what he will do to the baby. I wonder how many children are injured or die because of your's and MUQ's filthy god, allowing the babies to be raped?
A good question.

"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".

Soooo, since he has become agnostic then he believes a man named Jesus actually existed but isn't sure whether he was actually supernaturally conceived, had a divine purpose or is the son of a possible nonexistant god.
I think I've got it. Thank you so much for....erm....clearing that up.

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.
