It's the Darwin crowd that lacks the facts in evolution debate

nah, that g-d thing has been in long use.
No idea of it's origin but usefull, thus here to stay.
Replacement theology is acting as if jesus is in anyway relevant, or for that matter any translation that is not true to the jewish philosophy*. Some won't mind, but i get pretty tired looking up the original or even having to figure the relevance of the socalled new testament and thus the way those christian creationist minds interpret literally, because f.i. john said so.
*I will however not adhere to some extreme orthodox reading that for weird reasons makes too much allowances to even extreme right viewpoints. Having iran in mind and that unholy conference set up by Ahmadineyad.
And frankly i'm not alone in the different interpretation.
Which term is a clear stab at replacement.
Not too long. Wiki doesn't even redirect. What are the chances you could link to a pre-Jerry Falwell example of the use of G_d ?

Nothing in the Jewish Encyclopedia for G_d.

Maybe I'll find something in the Urban Dictionary.

Eureka !

G_d is how those who are too religious write "God". They do this, because they believe that writing "God" on something that could be destroyed is gonna earn them an eternity in hell, so they censor it.

G_d is how people who write God if they object to 'O's.

Yikes! Hellhouse as the yearly s.-m. party for evangelical christians. But i found no mention of this Falwell using it

It will persist.
But you might be right as far as public use goes.
Or it only became obvious when the net was used and religious discussions cropped up.
A lot of jewish people will also not persist, nor discuss differences directly. Motto:'nice you found the path'.
Or the practice of letting everybody be whatever they want to be.
Though that changes when pestered by evangelicals with their insistent 'truth' and proselysing, or with messies that do not realise they are just christians.
The latest freaky trick is to get ten evangelicals together and mob a jew to convert him/her!

The link: As to the name El Shaddai: shad-bread shaddai-nourisher
Almost unused root.

The latter one is funny.
But it is not the zealot deciding, but rather the impossibility to find the proper pronounciation for the tetragrammen.
But i think most of all that awareness of the differences with xianity decides my choice.
I've never seen christians or messianics with trinitarian dogma or at least some godson (from greek use) called Yeshua (female Aramaic name) write g-d.
I rather draw the line at also writing Elokim or a variation on haShem.

Another reason might be that the gang of Gad was an abomination in the eyes of g-d.
(Would have to look up chapter and verse.)
It seems the origin of 'god' seems not to derive from 'Goth' as i first figured, or from the scandinavian firm that transports god-goods, or from 'good' but from 'Gawd', thus the same pronounciation as that gang of Gad.

Forsaking the Lord
table for Gad
and Meni

The first use must be from the first English bible.
It's part of the series of mistakes like Moses depicted with horns or jesus being Lucifer or lucifer becoming a- and later the devil or even the devil and messengers/judges becoming angels a.s.o.

Don't be nutz. You're claiming that the Jews were so stupid that they couldn't tell if the sun stopped in the sky for a day. Let's not forget that these are folks that had no electric lights and pretty well lived by sunlight. I think they knew exactly what they were saying.
Where is it stated that the Sun stopped (i.e., didn't perceptively move) in the sky for a day?

And in the third place because i do not use Adonai or adonai so i do not see the point of going along with the socalled new-fad of replacing every mention with LORD or Lord or lord.
You certainly get high marks for consistency with almost nothing you post making any sense. In your recent post you clearly refer to the same god twice but use both g-d and god. G-d is no shorter than god, and since you quoted no verses Adonai/Lord doesn't even enter the picture. That's zero for three.

Now, why do you use g-d but not consistently?

I don't want to waste time answering the wrong question due to a misunderstanding. I gave you credit for having a reasonable knowledge of the Bible since you comment so dogmatically about it. I wondered if I was missing something. Now I know I wasn't, and you were. This tells me a lot about the foundation underpinning your anti-Bible comments.

You missed the point.
Christians have a trinitarian or at least son of god dogma. They do not belive in the hebrew g-d exclusively and see connections with the tanakh where there are none.
G-d is shorter then yhvh or el elohim and makes the point just as well.
So three out of three.

What verse has the sun...etc. What have we been discussing for pages!!!
How can you comment that joshua's battle was at a different place if you do not know of any mention of the sun being halted?
joshua 10:13
Mentioned twice by 15th Dalai Lama. The second one more specifically to you with the flattering term 'numbskull'.

So you can make sense when you want to! Now that you've outed yourself please continue since we know you're capable. Note that "Jah" which the Tanakh itself uses is just as short as g-d. So, why do you use g-d instead of the shortened form Yahweh gives himself?

Joshua 10:13 states not only that the Sun stood still but that it also set (i.e., moved).

Doesn't matter. That's not what the Bible says. Pathetic attempt at obfuscation.
