Webster’s Dictionary gives the definition and etymology of Allah as follows. Allah is the Muslim name for "the God." Allah is derived from two words "al," which means "the" and "ilah," which is related to the feminine Hebrew word for God, "eloah."
Now the Hebrew title or name for God is 'Elohim' and it is the plural form of eloah. It is made plural by adding "im," which is masculine. This corresponds to adding "s" to make a word plural in English. So the commonality between Allah and Elohim is "eloah" and "ilah."
According the Huston Smith’s book The World’s Religions (p. 222), it states: "Allah is formed by joining the definite article al meaning ‘the’ with Ilah (God). Literally, Allah means ‘The God.’ … When the masculine plural ending im is dropped from the Hebrew word for God, Elohim, the two words sound much alike." Eloah (Hebrew feminine) is similar to Ilah (God). Both Elohim and Allah are titles and not names.

I noted a few errors, however. For example, the earliest writing was almost certainly the Chines, not the Sumerians. In fact, the Chinese developed writing 1000 years or more before the Sumerians did...
According to legend, Chinese characters were invented by Cangjie (c. 2650 BC), a bureaucrat under the legendary emperor, Huangdi.
The cuneiform writing system was in use for more than 30 centuries, as the world's first system through several stages of evolution, from the 34th century BC down to the 1st century AD

I have to object to the comparison of the DNA helix to the caduceus. They are not the same; they are not even similar. The DNA helix involves two strands making a helix (3-D spiral). The two strands always go in the same direction. They either both twist clockwise, or they both twist counterclockwise. The caduceus serpents always twine or twist in opposite directions. One serpent twists clockwise, the other counterclockwise. That's not a trivial distinction. There's no way to turn one of those helices into the other, without taking off one of the serpents and making him wind around in the same direction as his buddy.
THE ELOHEEMS ANUNNAQIS
Among The Anunnaqi THE ANUNNAQI ELOHEEM are those beings who were sent down to the Planet Qi (Earth), known to you as angels. The word Anunnaqi means "those who ANU sent from heaven to Earth." They are called NETERU, meaning "guardians" by the Egyptians. The Anunnaqi Eloheem are the "mighty ones." In Ashuric/Syraic (Arabic) the "mighty ones" are referred to as Jabbariyns. In Aramic (Hebrew) the "mighty ones" are referred to as Gibboreem.The very elite among the Anunnaqi are called the DINNEER, or the DINGIR, meaning "the righteous, or divine ones of the rocket ship," or ILU, meaning "the lofty ones" in Akkadian.The Anunnaqi, Eloheem, were acting as intermediaries between Earth and NIBIRU. They came to the planet Earth in order to find gold and other resources, to take back to their planet which is the 8th planet—Rizq, of the 19th galaxy called Illyuwn meaning "on high," which was on its way to destruction due to constant rays from the three suns UTU, APSU, and SHAMASH.

yeah, i included AL in there because before it meant "The" ? it was used in other god words like BA'AL, which is also B'EL.
and the really obvious one for connecting IL to EL,
BAB-ILU (which see) = BAB-EL

With reference to the statement made in the OP: "Again I stress the importance of names and their purpose."
Of course, we're told it's because Mars was the ascending planet at the time Cairo was settled, but I doubt it.
Not knowing proper punctuation just make's you look dum.
God gave man everything that is good to eat, gave him dominion over all creation, gave man his own free will, and in fact God walked with man. He forbade one thing. If man could not obey even this one little thing, how could God trust him in the bigger things?

Umm, well, the serpent did not lie, God did, let's not forget that upon eating the fruit- I don't recall the bible ever saying it was an apple or any other physical fruit- neither she nor Adam keeled over and died. They did eventually die, certainly, but the bible is silent as to whether that would have occured without partaking of this forbidden fruit. It never stated or implied they were immortal. We'll not be putting in words where there are none. The words state eat and you will die, they ate and they did not die, one point for the serpent and a penalty deucted from God for lying.

Correct me If I'm wrong but the Sumerian's didn't just appear out of no where. There are other cultures that pre date them.
- 5500 BC and 2750 BC Cucuteni-Trypillian culture - Agriculture, Domestic Animals, Cereal Crops
- 6500–5500 B.C. Halaf Culture - Settled farming society, Fine Pottery/Jewellery
Then you have the Tartaria tablets which pre date Sumer/Sumerian script/text by 1000 yrs.
civilization is a lot older than previously thought, but we just have to keep on doing research and keeping an open mind.
