Re: Not capitalizing the word

[quote="wracket
You're supporting my point. "God" ain't the name...at best it's a title (capitalized in haughty, monotheistic tradition). But if I'm ever referencing Moses' lord/god as "Elohim", rest assured that I'll be capitalizing it.[/quote]


Actually, no...It shows that capital G "God" is a translation of a proper name or names, and should therefore be capitalized. Granted, it's a very piss poor translation. But I doubt those who write "god" out of disrespect are protesting the translators.
