Depends on the atheist, I think. Some will see it as a hoax perpetrated by the God Learners, others as the creation of some supernatural being that obviously isn't really God (I'd suspect this is what the Brithini claim), others the product of a sincerely held, yet delusional, belief of some kind.

Yes. Mind you, pretty much everything in the West is written in such a language. The Abiding Script is their standard alphabet, and Malkioni don't generally write in the vernacular.

They'd claim there isn't any difference. I don't think the Arolanit Brithini in particular have changed noticeably since the Grey Age. This is part of what's so scary about them (especially, one assumes, if you happen to be a change-obsessed Heortling).

Yes.

Pretty much, yes, although different sects put different spins on it.
