Tetragammataon as a name for Yahweh
- Is 'Tetragrammaton' one of the names of God? I have never heard that before! I can just image the prayer, "Almighty Tetragrammaton, who art in heaven, give us this day our daily bread..." Hmm! Doubtful, to say the least! Rubbish, more like it!
Lets get some encyclopedic sense into this article. Remove Tetragrammaton from the list of the names of God, and, if necessary, put the word underneath in a sub-section called 'See Also: ...'--126.96.36.199 (talk) 17:01, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
Deletion proposal and problems
I think, perhaps, this page should be removed. Either that or it needs some additional description and pruning in order to be more than nonsense.
If the page is intended to be contain names of gods, then it doesn't do a very good job of it and I'm sure there are more complete lists. If it is intended to contain a list of names of a certain god, then it doesn't do a good job because it contains the names of different gods (for instance, Amaterasu is certainly not a name for Yahweh).
The only interpretation under which it seems to make any sense is if the author is intending to imply that all religions of the world worship the same god under different names. While this is a perfectly decent opinion to make a page about (if a movement representing that idea exists), it is inappropriate to present the view as fact.
