The Moabite Stone

From Alt.Bible.Errancy, 2-24-02:
Greetings all.

Traffic is slow so I will not feel too guilty asking this. It appears that 
there are many similarities between the Moabite god Kemosh and the god of the bible YHWH. I will not detail them here, but would like to ask if anyone has suggested references to pursue this amazing parallel.

Yes, read the inscription on the Moabite Stone. It purported to be a message 
from King Mesha, the Moabite king mentioned in 2 Kings 3:4-27. If the name Yahweh were substituted for Chemosh, it would read like a page out of the OT.
