because god is make believe so does not need to be capitalized.
would you care if they wrote "tooth fairy" non capitalized?


Its a name, though. You don't capitalize God because he's God, you capitalize God because its a name. You DO capitalize names, don't you?

The topic isn't even about the existence of god and people still come in here with **** like this.


This is why I was afraid of making the topic. I thought it might turn into an atheist circle-jerk.


That's why you never should have made it, atheists--the insecure bunch that they are--will seize on any opportunity to denounce God and any religion. Pandora only comes out of the box, he doesn't go back in.




Dead/dying babies and children, wars, murder, etc.

Where is your almighty God to stop it all?

There is more proof of no God than proof of him.

Look, we really don't need to do this. Its a neverending debate because it doesn't end, and as smart as you lot are, I don't think we'll uncover anything new in a God debate, so why not just stop here before it gets ugly?

Atheist here, and I think it should be capitalized, too. It's a proper noun. Like someone else said, we capitalize Zeus.

This. Save it for when they're trying to pass some nutty legislation. The internet bickering is just tiring, and the last place we need a religion fight is the Max Payne board...

I'm an Atheist, and I don't know a lot of the details, but I'm quite certain that "God" is not the Christian god's name anyway, it's "Yaweh" isn't it?

That's the Jewish name for God. Most Christians as far as I can tell simply call him "God."

I don't capitalize the word god either. Much like I don't capitalize the words cat, dog, fish, tree...and they're all REAL things.

If you don't believe in god you are ignorant.
See how that works? I'm Agnostic, but I think its really stupid to bash another side over a standpoint we can't prove because *some* individuals who practice religion are manipulated/manipulative. Its like saying that all Germans are Anti-Semitic.

Like I said, we really shouldn't get into this argument, because it is a debate that has no conclusion. You can have your opinions, but I think its safer to not speak in absolutes when we have no proof that points to either side being correct.

Its common sense.

So you don't follow the rules of basic grammar? Anytime a being's name is written, it's supposed to be capitalized. "God" is the name of said being, not the general term for his role in the universe. If it said "your god" or "a god" then it would make sense, but it doesn't in the world of Max Payne 3. Cat, dog, fish, and tree aren't specific names of creature, but are general terms used to describe them. If your dog's name is Harry, you would capitalize that, wouldn't you?

Cat, dog, fish, and tree aren't NAMES, though.
What part of this aren't people getting?

Its like as soon as the word god came into play, people decided to just start acting like asses.
