Wayne, read the above - god and good have no etymological relationship.
I don't believe he cares, Wheels - after all, his original "point" tried to say both that "good" as a word came from "god" (red), but also that the word "god" was a corruption of "good" (blue).
By the way, where do you think the word good came from? Disobey his desire to be addressed by his self assigned station at your own peril.
Never mind that the actual roots of the two words (as you have shown) are quite different.
And never mind that his god is actually called Yahweh - and that the word "god" is and has been applied to numerous other creatures over history - including to Satan by Wayne himself:
Satan is the god of this world
- hence, by Wayne's argument, what he actually
wrote there was "Satan is the GOOD
of this world".
And never mind that (so far as I am aware), Yahweh never actually said to call him "good" in the Bible, as Wayne asserts up there in blue. Lord, yes. Father, yes. But "thou shalt call me good"? Nope. Spag, again.
And never mind, at last, that when the Bible was written, the word for "good" was "????", and the word for god was "???" - utterly, utterly different words.
Its as disingenuous as the pop psychologist who once tried to tell me "you should give yourself the gift
- that's why both those words can be written as present".
I wonder whether Wayne will be able to accept that his point to DoS was incorrect on every level? Whether he will be able to take the advice he offered us waaayy back...
The real test of honesty is when someone can admit that a commonly misconstrued rumor doesn't support their viewpoint as well as their less honest allies say it does.
I find you in the most part unable to concede any point, or allow for any doubt that you might be faced with accurate information that weakens your case.
Somehow I doubt it - did he ever admit to failings in Barton's data? Or did he continue to ignore all evidence to the contrary and stick with the proven flawed data because it happened to agree with his preferred view?
