He'll probably tell you he's read and has copies of them all.

The only thing I need to prove my point has been supplied, you are trying to get me to go off topic.
In ancient Canaan, El was represented by the Bull.
When Moses was up on the Mountain the Israelites made Yahweh a golden bull.
His anger was because he was not El, and didn't want to be worshipped as El. Otherwise he wouldn't have been mad about this gift for him. They weren't worshipping the Bull, it was a gift.
But he got pissed because the bull represents El. Yahweh is not El.

The repeated use of the phrase "YHWH is my El'ohim" (meaning 'YHWH is my God') throughout the Tenach indicates clearly that YHWH was a name and El was a description or title.
