God has many names, Jehovah, Yahweh, God, Gott, Supreme Being, Father, Heavenly Father, Holy Spirit, etc. Nearly every language has a different name for God. I prefer Yahweh.

Yahweh is a proper noun. There is only one god whose name is Yahweh. The terms father, heavenly father, god, supreme being, holy spirit, jehovah, lord, almighty are all common nouns that apply to many gods, but there is only one name whereby I know my god.

Doth not the commandment, " Thou shalt have no other god above you" imply the existence of other gods whose name is not Yahweh?

(Red-herring argument, but valid nonetheless!)

The commandment 'though shalt have no other gods before me,' implies that when it was said, the peoples of the world were worshipping their own pagan gods, as did the Israelites whilst Moses was on the mountain (Sinai, right?). He is not saying the other gods existed, but rather that they must not take any others - regardless of their existence.

People just dont fucking get it do they?

Despite the fight to claim just one god , they continue to chose a name.

The name each chose to claim as being the one god is just as biasly bound by religion and culture as the other .

Fuck i wish people would snap out of it !

It was applied to heathen deities and later,when the teutonic peoples were converted to christianity,the word was elevated to the christian sense.

There is no conection between god and good in form, nor was the conception of goodness prominent in the heathen conception of a deity]
