You can keep this article neutral while avoiding offending a whole host of people by deleting the phrase "in Biblical mythology" and replace it instead with simply "in the Bible." I highly recommend changing this wording because as it stands it does carry a whiff of inherent bias against traditional Judaism/Christianity. Michel van der Hoek 22:23, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

I agree, and have replaced it with what seems more neutral simply placing him in the Old Testament.
Also, I've moved " He is also regarded by historians as the founder of monotheism." to this talk page. While I might accept an expert author saying this as an individual, generic "historians" is not, in my mind, adequate sourcing. --Howard C. Berkowitz 00:06, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
