    Angels were the oddity in Judaism's quest for monotheism.


    If god is made in man’s image then he would want to have a partner and children. As sons and daughters of god they to would be gods. If we are going to believe in the concept of god, then it makes sense to have numerous gods.

    The Greeks and Romans had it right; hundreds of gods and goddesses each with its own characteristics. Nice gods, bad gods, amorous gods fond of ambrosia, and destructive gods. This way one god does not have to take the blame for bad things while claming to be good. The gods can pass the buck between themselves.

    “God, who needs nothing, loves into existence wholly superfluous creatures in order that He may love and perfect them. He creates the universe, already foreseeing - or should we say "seeing"? there are no tenses in God - the buzzing cloud of flies about the cross, the flayed back pressed against the uneven stake, the nails driven through the mesial nerves, the repeated incipient suffocation as the body droops, the repeated torture of back and arms as it is time after time, for breath's sake, hitched up. If I may dare the biological image, God is a "host" who deliberately creates His own parasites; causes us to be that we may exploit and "take advantage of" Him. Herein is love. This is the diagram of Love Himself, the inventor of all loves.”
    ? C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

    **** If God is the father where did the feminine come from? Is god both sexes*****

    God is Spirit, asexual, methophers are used as the source of life for human understanding "Father" . The the methopher of "feminity" is attributed to the Source's exact representation, personification of Wisdom and Truth aka The Word, Jesus Christ....the Source external to creation is able to reconcile ALL things to "HIMSELF" in Christ, the preeminence of creation. Hence creation would NOT exist without the unity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

    What argument is there for a single God?

    There is only one Sun and there is only one Moon ( a newly born God )

    The myriad of stars in the sky are gods angles who were created by God for God.

    Humanity's conscious awareness of the world in which we live in created many diverse imaginative expressions of gods

    to explain and give answers to the what we see and experience in the world.

    mP -> Finkelstein:

    Even the bible tells us " As above so below", "As your kingdom in heaven so let it be on earth etc".

    There is however, abundant cosmological evidence that explains the creation of the universe.

    You use the word "creation" very specifically in this statement. Please define what you mean by "creation"?

    Return - mormonism has a foundational concept that god is a glorified man who went through a similar mortal experience to us. The ultimate aim of mormon thinking is to prepare us to become our own gods. God is a title not a sole being, a title applicable to all those who have proven themselves worthy of becoming as god. To be a god one must be married as the cycle starts again, prepare world, populate it with children, be god of that world etc. There is no proof of multiple or single gods.
