Show me a one word sentence that isn't a fragment.

I'd rather just delete it altogether, or find and replace.

It's a one word, complete sentence. The Subject is understood. It's just a basic rule within english, and I DO believe it is the exception that proves the rule... *shrugs* But then again, I Could be wrong...

No, it actually is not a complete sentence. If 'god' was a verb, then you would be correct; however, a stand-alone noun does not make a sentence.

See? A noun by itself can make a sentence. Want another example? Simpleton!

Poppy**** is not a noun. 'Tis an interjection. Only interjections and imperative verbs can stand alone, unless you are using one word as a fragment for deliberate emphasis. Please note that this should be used sparingly.

Shoo! Poppy**** is a noun - it's used as an interjection. Capisce?

I find it funny that the point was completely missed.
Ignoring the ERROR that is God. You've been doing it all your life. What's one more time gonna hurt?

Every sentence must have a noun/subject and a verb. The shortest sentence in English is "I am."

Actually, there is such a thing as an "understood subject", which need not be written/spoken. The shortest possible sentence would be "Go."
