But we do have a specific name for God. Just like our scientific name for the Sun IS the name the Romans used for the Sun, way back then. The specific name for God that we Christians use IS the same name found in the Old Testament.
That's Aqua's problem...and that is the mistake that he is making.People (for the most part) know that "helios" is some sort of reference to what we call the Sun,even though we didn't come up with the term. Likewise, Christians know that YAHWEH is a reference to what we call God, even though we didn't coin that term.
helios = not just any sun, but The Sun
YAHWEH = God
