Adonai in Hebrew is the word for God... The Aramaic word for Father is Abba. And Jesus used the name "YHWH". Of course this is farfetched because the Israelites began their religion prior to being held captive in Babylon. A simple history lesson could tell you that. By the time they were in Babylon, YHWH, Moses, Messiah, and the doctrines of the Jews were already established.

Moses is a mythical Character and so is Abraham. The Jewish Messiah wasn't Jesus and never will be.

If Abraham or Moses existed can you please show me some scientific proof?

Christianity did not hold those back. One of the earliest accounts of Christianity from a secular source says that the Romans thought it was insipid that a slavewoman was a deaconess and well respected by the Christians. If you read the Bible, you would see that Apostle Paul frequently praised women for their hardwork in Christ. Women's rights were not held back by Christianity, they were held back by prejudice:

28There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:28 NIV)

Well here are some other verses which say the opposite:

"Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression."--1 Tim. 2:11-14

3Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. (1 Corinthians 11:3)

"Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live" (Exodus 22:18) this verse is responsible for the death of ten of thousands of women.

Please try to explain how Christianity has changed. I

Look at Christianity 800 years ago it was leading crusades against Muslims, Jews and Pagans but today it doesn't do that because do you know why because the church doesn't follow the Bible. They use to burn Heretics but once again it doesn't do that anymore because it has change since then.
