No, you don't want to deal with the fact that the Bible says the Sun stood still for a day.
Knocking down walls by sleeping on your left side for four hundred ninety days is just as stupid. Of course you take the cake.
Why didn't you cite the verses for knocking down walls by side-sleeping? You may be in for another surprise when you try to find them.

Jah is one of many nametitles who's meaning was lost.
So at it's proper place it serves it's function.
Yes it does. It serves to identify Yahweh with a shortened form, so you can use it instead of g-d which is just an avoidance of spelling god which is not a Christian co-opted term but is universally used to refer to any who are considered as god, including Yahweh.

The tetragrammaton is not translated as 'God', it is translated as 'Lord', a big difference that you've managed to screw up.
Any luck finding a pre-Falwell use of 'G_d'?
The tetragrammaton is not properly translated as 'Lord'. Its meaning is along the lines of "he who causes to become". That is not the meaning of 'Lord'.

I must give you a bit of credit for calling MAAT out for his gobbledygook.

May the Sovereign Lord Almighty shower blessings on you and yours forever and ages of ages.

No matter. You've sufficiently exposed your ignorance of the Bible to establish that you, like so many, just pass along with increasingly understandable dataless ease what you have been told by other equally ignorant critics.

Joshua 22:22 uses the phrase 'el elohim yahweh' twice. If you think you can replace any of the three indiscriminately with G_d you are a numbskull.
You do not read properly, now do you!
When the generalized term is called for and is solely referring and concerned with the hebrew g-d, i'll use it.
As do many others.
In the case of joshua your silly greek adapted translation with misplaced deference to jewish customs, would show, if consistent, something like Lord lords(judges/messengers/combin ed characteristics of all) LORD.

I consider the rest of your replies ranting because it galls you that not everyone is using LORD because some christian translation committee decided so.
You brought up weird Fallwell - apropos of nothing- so it's not up to me to proof anything.

Exactly. So where the tetragrammen is used as a placeholder so is the use of g-d.
Or generally used to make the difference between what christians think their god is and what the hebrew have always understood g-d to be.
It's always idiotic to see christians telling even rabbis what their book actually says and means.
Not that 15th dalai numbskull lama would understand.
As far as i read Q&A from his profile he just got interested in religion so as to make a bit of money on the side.

In the mists of time -just to use that poetic phrase- many more name-titles where in use in the ANE (ancient near east) and levant.
Most have dropped of the radar and usually they are not translated even when they crop up in f.i. Akkadian. Nor does anyone know the exact origin. Speculation is rife however.
I see baptists and black hebrews use it consistently and since i do not identify with those groups i would not.
A name-title is not the tetragrammen (tetragrammaton) nor name or actual broad meaning. As you also pointed out.
YHVH could even be understood as stating:
" my name to you is:' be whatever shall be' ".
Or in secular understanding and crude use of the full phrase:'none of your business'...not to be pinned down to understanding at a particular time and place.
