I'm surprised you have never heard of it.

Some of the dates they're throwing around for some of those idols go as far back as 29000 BC. I think its open for debate. Most of those idols resemble Ashera idols. Im of the opinion that Ashera appears around the same time as Ba'al, which was some time after the first El. Like I said, its open for debate.

You'll be debating with yourself
The rest of the world knows mother goddess worship is the oldest. No need to go into it further...sorry if females being worshipped first gets you discombobulated

Our Father who art in Heaven.... etc., Jesus the Christ speaking.

That's good enough for me.

I don't know what to call "God," and not offend or alienate anyone! I have been using "Creator," but I feel that couldl "offend" or "turn off" atheists, and many in the fields of the sciences are atheists.

I don't believe you can satisfy all people for several reasons.

Rabbinic Judaism are forbidden to pronounce God's name so even if you had the proper name it could not be used in rabbinic Judaism.

Another person's god may be a bodiless sort of energy with no definition of a name.

Islam calls their god Allah with no complete definition of substance. Or at least none that I know.

Most Christian denominations simply call God as a Creator or spirit of unknown substance or Holy Spirit.

But some Christian Jews call God as Yahuah (Ya - hoo - ah) and distinguishes Him from His Begotten Son Yahusha
(Ya - hoo - sha). I embrace the Eth Cepher which teaches this. - click the "Watch Video" -

There are even some who are gods to themselves and even some who believe they are a God.

So in light of just these few examples I don't believe everyone is on the same page nor ever will be on the same page in defining God.

Yes, Jesus said we could address God as "Abba, Father."

Here is the link with the answer.


I also think this video should help you as well

I was just reading about this stuff last night!

Like that video says, Yahweh is sometimes expressed as YHWH.
According to what I've read the Hebrew letters of YHWH apparently mean the following.

Hey = Behold
Vav = Nail
Hey = Behold
Yod = Closed Hand

Several years ago I started noticing patterns all over and it was as if reality was trying to trick me into thinking that I am God. One day I noticed the veins in my hand were all swelled up so I took a picture because I couldn't believe what they were shaped like... They're pretty close to the shape of a penis!

Behold the Nail(Penis), Behold the Hand.

Kind of a funny coincidence!

Names for Gods that were not creators...
Ok, i hear ya, but we kinda are talking about a creator god, not just a control freak one.
That's why I said even scientists and atheists will agree, best term.

Maybe in the forward to your book, explain the conundrum you've had with nomenclature in such an expansive subject matter. Briefly mention the names given to God by the world's major religions, then for sake of brevity, tell your audience, what YOU intend to refer to Him as in your book. From that point forward, if someone is offended, that's their problem, not yours.

Yes, that's perfect.
I won't go into why "Him" or "She" are silly. Ok, I will.
There are self-reproducing hermaphroditic creatures on Earth - would you call one "he" or "she?"
If there is only ONE God, ONE creator - I got news for yall, it ain't a he or a she.
Lol deal with that, happy Sunday.
And, as I stated, I will say "Creator."
Thanks again all, I starred those who I likeded.
