comment What did Isaiah intend with his unusual usage of “create” in Isaiah 45:7?
Put it this way, I wouldn't call that scholarship. But I'm going to leave this answer for now. I'll come back to it when I get hold of some books.

You know, I'm not even going to touch that one.

Three things: I have never heard any modern scholar suggest any controversy over the "three Isaiah" concept or the dating of 40-55; when Genesis was written/codified is actually more in doubt; I'm not saying that Israel was polytheistic, merely that monotheism became, in the exilic and post-exilic era, dominant in Israelite theology in a way that previously it had not been.
