It has been pretty well documented that God derives from Gott, an ancient German God, whose name became a word that meant the abstract concept of a God, and passed into English from Anglo Saxon era language. It is not a name, but an honorific. Somewhat analogous to Allah which means the god, and is also not strictly speaking, a proper name.

My view now is that the word "God" is derived from the word "Khald" The Asssyrians had a God called Khaldi but in studying the language of this region I realized that the "I" ending is a suffix denoting possession. In other words, the name is Khald and the "I" is added to show it is the Assyrian's god"i" Turkish is like this still.

God is a derivative of Proto-Indo-European neuter passive perfect participle *ǵʰu-tó-m. For some reason I can't stop laughing at this. Big Grin

Are you sure that's not "clod" ?

I think Bernie would be a better name for god.

Ya know, cause he likes to burn things & people & generally just destroy shit without rhyme or reason.

"Damnit Bernie"

It has a nice ring to it, as if he was a neighbor who is a complete asshole.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

I prefer "Harvey". It's got the same tone when you say "dammit Harvey", but it has the added benefit of making it clear that you're talking to an invisible imaginary bunny.

I prefer Adolf after all he's pretty maniacal genocidal and bumbling incompetent just like the Fuhrer really.
