no where before the torah is there a mention of one true god, but all mention many gods.
the written text, especially on stone, is hard to alter.
Even harder, apparently, to research.
See, Bel Marduk was a "one true god" before Yahweh.
Demanding Jehova's name before the Hebrews is a little too much. Languages change, right? So do beliefs.
Yahweh didn't just pop up with the Torah. Yahweh was a minor god in the Canaanite religion before Judaism. He morphed into El (the head god) in the Canaanite religion, the result of which is Judaism.
The idea of Yahweh as El has precedent - Marduk again. Yahweh's evolution to the Big Boss is paralleled by Marduk (a thousand years earlier) who, in the Enuma Elish, is revealed to be the personification of all the old Babylonian (Sumerian) gods.
In fact, the Canaanite religion has direct and indiputable ties to the Babylonian. These people spoke different languages though.
It might be that Yahweh can be traced all the way back to An (Anu) - the Sumerian Big Boss. We need more evidence from the Canaanites to make that connection and at present there is precious little.
On the other hand, there's certainly a lot more than you make it out to be in this thread.

Well Yahweh is the God of Abraham, a man that came from Ur close to Uruk in southern Mesopotamia where Anu was the highest God, but it doesn't have to be Anu that spoke to Abraham and told him to move to another land.
The Urantia Brotherhood’s holy text was 'supposedly channelled by a member of the Kellogg family, which had four members enrolled in Skull & Bones fraternity at the time to book was produced.' The Urantia book is a mind control tool that serves the upper-class comprising Bones. It is larded with the same eugenics that have been a hallmark of S&B for the past century: The Bones society is also known to be on close terms with the CIA, but the Urantia sect had long been a front for agents of government and the Complex before the CIA came along. " Many of the cult's early members had positions in government and poltical bodies like the UN - similar to the career paths of Bonesmen.
The Urantia Cult is a Skull & Bones Spin-Off
