Well, now; let's be generous. Only European languages, by and large, differentiate letter case - maybe he's from somewhere that doesn't. So he doesn't have no excuse for being too ignorant and lazy to hit the shift key - just a really bad one.

no, i do know how to use the shift key, but i don't use it because i see no use in capitalising letters, and whoever doesn't like it can gfy, i honestly don't care much more than that my idea is conveyed clearly, i'm not into persecuting the details

persecuting the details? Consider

I disagree with it completely. Theists have only 1 reason to live, they've been told they have to. Atheists have the freedom to find as many reasons as they want. Anecdotally, every ex-theist I know of has said that they felt much happier after giving up the dogma. If you look I think you'll find that is very common.

By the way, quoting conservapedia is just hilarious. They don't even pretend to hide their bias.

Finally, for what it is worth, I don't believe your claims to be an atheist. Your arguments belie that.

just because i'm an atheist, you can't expect me to support atheism for every single point, that's called bias, and it's certainly not the way i became an atheist. and if you insist enough, i'm from muslim background, arab to be exact, studying in a dutch university in dutch language. that's all i have to say, i don't care what you're gonna believe or not believe after this.

There is only one point in atheism: the lack of belief in any gods.

I don't know what kind of atheist you think you are since you don't even know the meaning of the word.

Yet you fail to address the actual issue or my point.

That sounds like an interesting story. So how did you become atheist?
