    god -> God

    (or god -> gods)
  2. Sep 10th 2010, 10:48
    I feel that if he is an atheist, he would not capitalize god.
  3. Sep 10th 2010, 10:52
    Uh, I don't think that's a correct grammatical analysis. "I don't believe in money." <-- no need to capitalize "money".
  4. Sep 10th 2010, 10:56
    If it was "I don't believe in Scientology." Scientology would still get a letter, even though he doesn't believe/respect it because it is a proper noun.
  5. Sep 10th 2010, 11:00
    Umm, "Scientology" might be a proper noun, but "god" isn't.

    I think you misunderstand exactly why "god" is capitalized. It is done out of respect, not because of any grammatical feature of the word. It is for this same reason that when a personal pronoun, such as "he" or "him" refers to god, it is also capitalized.

    However, I can see that what you might be trying to say is that god with a capital 'g' denotes a specific entity, i.e., "the one god" and that "god" without the capitalization does not refer to this entity. This, I feel, is debatable.

    You know what, I'm just going to let go of this sentence. I feel like there are reasons to be sought for either capitalization or lack there of, but I guess I'm just not that interested in the debate. =P

    From the second link it would appear that
    "I don't believe in a god."
    or
    "I don't believe in the Christian god."
    would be OK with lower case, but
    "I don't believe in God."
    should have an upper case.

    dont -> don't
  10. May 18th 2012, 09:51
    belive > believe

    Don't you believe in grammar?
  11. May 18th 2012, 16:31
    No... but I believe in politeness
  12. May 18th 2012, 18:50
    "God" here should be capitalized.
  13. May 18th 2012, 18:51
    Roger that!
