Re: Most Gods should be thrown away
lots of people are stupid, cruel, and silly, yet they still exist. an evil or inept god is still a god, right?
Wouldn't the confirmed existence of one god be ample proof to suggest that there can be many gods? And if so, why settle for the cruel, stupid and silly one? Look at what happened to the US during the Bush admin.
I think it would be best not to settle. If you meet the asshole god, maybe try finding the cool god and ignore the other one.

Re: Most Gods should be thrown away
i don't see why that would necessarily follow. yes, if would open the possibility (since a deity can exist, two deities wouldn't be completely unreasonable).
As you said, if there is one there can be two. What then would restrict the possibility of more?
That's all I meant.
their logic was that god will forgive you, but the devil won't.
Ha! That's cool, I like their logic.
