In addition to the linguistic impossibilities, this suggestion shows a distinct unawareness of how ancient Near Eastern religions worked. It assumes a modern-day model of the 'religion marketplace', as opposed to the henotheistic model that seems to have pervaded the Fertile Crescent for many centuries. It holds about as much water as the suggestion that Pharaoh was French.

Given that this suggestion stretches credulity to the extreme, it will close on Sunday. No more posts on this from Monday onwards.
