The Grammar of God

Unlike some atheists, I see no problem capitalizing “God”. God can be a proper or improper noun. It would be like having a dog named “Dog”: when you’re talking about dogs in general the word “dog” is lowercase, but when it’s your specific dog, “Dog” is capitalized. “My dog is named Dog”. Same thing with gods: “I believe in a god. His name is God.” However, the one grammatic stand I will take against God (and any other gods) is that his pronoun shouldn’t be capitalized. “I don’t believe in God. I’ve seen no evidence of him.”

I’m starting this blog as an outlet for my thoughts on religion, it successes, shortfalls, and how I get along without it. As an atheist and secularist, I often get accused of only believing in “cold logic”, to which I respond, “What’s so cold about it?" Just because I think critically where where religious people don’t doesn’t make me cold, immoral or unfeeling. I’m not anti-religious per se, though I feel some religious practices do get a free ride where they shouldn’t. The main reason I’m an atheist is that I think a life lived on secular priciples is a better way to live. In reading this, you’ll probably see plenty of ideas you’ve heard before, and hopefully a few you haven’t. With any luck, you’ll understand where I’m coming from, and we’ll both be better off.
